In case we're looking for a one-word summary... TERRORISM. A picture of Dylann Roof standing with a newly-fired gun in front of the church in Charleston where he shot nine African American parishoners.
I’m not sure it was “terrorism”. Terrorism makes everyone afraid, not just one segment of the population. Much of the white commentary I see is more afraid of losing their White Privilege than anything else. Most of the black commentary I see is afraid it will happen again and afraid that people won’t see it for what it is: the result of the regular devaluation of black people in the media and society.
