Glad That's Clear

And one more thing about my disgust with the media today, as if Imus and the circus around that fiasco isn't enough -

I'm SO, SO glad we know that the gunman is Asian.

(Never mind my vendetta with the umbrella use of that term.)

So often people wonder by "people of color" see race in everything and everything is racialized and in every possible action, something comes up regarding race.

And then in a tragedy like this, one of the first things we need to know about the gunman, not if he acted alone, was a student, or what his agenda was - no, we want to know what race he is.

Have you seen the links on the internet that give listings of Asian killing sprees? Or that the gunman might have been an international student and is not looking to see if he has ties with a terrorist group?
