Everytime a white guy kills someone or commits mass murder the white race is left off the hook by calling him insane but when a non-white commits a crime thier whole race has to answer for his crime. This post outlines this strange but true dichotomy in US culture in the 21st Century.
For some reason being white gets you a pass on being a terrorist, no matter what you do exemplified by the following classic Bill O Reilly lie & misdirection (which is different in context from his reporting lies so it doesn't get any media attention, i.e. he lies like this all the time so the "normal" media considers it to be normal);
In the Name of the Fodder: The Fox News rapid-response team distinguishes violence in the name of a religion from the practitioners of that religion -- as long as it's Christianity. (05:17);
Yet... from Andre:
#1 Show On Cable News (Bill O Reilly)
Basically Fox News did the same thing for the Charleston shooting that it did for the Andre Brevik mass murder and terror attack in Norway (also, interestingly enough, a right wing terror attack which is automatically ignored or re-framed in the GOP's media);
Washington Post: This racist media narrative around mass violence falls apart with the Charleston church shooting.
The Power Of Being White (You can be a know terrorist supporter ans still hold public office)
For example Peter King supporting bombing buses (a standard terror tactic) is clearly seen as non-terrorist. That's the power of being white.
Colbert Report: As an IRA supporter, Peter King understands the violent radicalism among American Muslims.
