When the Beltway Snipers, two black men, perpetrated their mass murder, America said, yes obviously they are crazy and it was just their insanity that made them evil killers. It has nothing to do with the dysfunction of American society. But when some white kid perpetrates mass murder, America thinks there must be something wrong with all of us - we need to control our guns because none of us can be trusted.
Well the reason is obvious. If mass-murderous rage can happen in a nice white community, there's obviously something wrong with all of American society. But if black people do some mass murder, well that's not really our civilization, our fault or our problem. Blame it on those crazy Negroes. They're special.
John Allen Muhammed? Psychopath - completely unhinged, nothing he does reflects upon what America is about. Let's put this maniac under the jail as soon as possible. Insane. Evil. Guilty. Case Closed.
Adam Lanza? - Well, he had some mental health challenges. We need to control guns and help people with mental illness. His story illustrates how America needs to get better. We ought to even reconsider the whole Second Amendment to the Constitution.
Now say something.
