With a manhunt still underway for the person responsible for the massacre of nine people in a Charleston, South Carolina church, already the Left is exploiting the shooting deaths of innocents to further their political agenda. Salon is demanding all of “white America answer for” these murders:
The story is still developing. At present, Charleston authorities are reporting that this mass shooting and likely right-wing domestic terrorist assault is a hate crime.
While this horrific event is one more murderous and racist blow to the African-American community in Charleston–the killing of Walter Scott by a white thug cop being the most high-profile and recent offense–the reporting on the mass shooting at Emanuel Baptist is an additional affront via the White Racial Frame as practiced by the mainstream news media.
A Daily Beast editor has already used the Charleston massacre to attack guns and Americans.
Police are still looking for the shooter, described as a white male, 20 to 25 years old, with sandy hair. Here is a photo.
