Compared to other Reddit posts about attacks on Asians, top comments have been arguing a narrative that this shooting targeting Asians isn't related to any racism, and there's drama in the replies arguing back:
>They won't call it racism or a hate crime when the sheriff's official is racist.
>One of the workers claimed he said he wanted to kill Asians: https://twitter.com/e_alexjung/status/1372172564399853571
>The police spokesman only said that the shooter claims it wasn't racially motivated. The OD themselves have made no determination to the motive
>"Because he said so" is so not a reason to believe a person who just got done murdering 8 people with the intent to kill more. The Pulse nightclub shooter claimed he didn't target Pulse because it was a gay bar. I still think it was a factor, and I'm not gonna take him at his word.
>Why are so many people making this point, as though the killings couldn't have been both sexually and racially motivated? They're not mutually exclusive.
>whatever hate ledger you're keeping, it weirds me the fuck out.
>Oh. Well, if the shooter SAYS he wasn't racially motivated (which coincidentally carries a higher penalty), then I guess we need to believe him. Because racist people are usually really honest and never fucking lie. Not even to themselves. But at least you got to finger wag at a lot of people who are sick and angry at yet another instance of misogynistic AND racist violence that is being dismissed and minimized as a "bad day". Sorry you got weirded the fuck out. My apologies.
>Exactly. I've heard so many ppl in my life rant, "And according to the democrats I'm a racist! I'm not a racist!" 5 minutes later and they're saying the n word. Let's just take this mass murderer at his word like he can actually evaluate his own hateful mind
>When is the epidemic of white male violence and terrorism going to be taken seriously?
>Wait a minute - aren’t they... keep reading on reddit ➡
My M43 sister's wedding was last week. She sent me and my wife an invitation and said that the wedding allowed kids so everyone was bringing their kids to the event.
Once I heard that kids were allowed I let my wife know and she decided to go dress shopping with our daughter (14yo)
Our daughter is quite picky when it comes to clothes It took them several visits to the mall to find what our daughter was looking for.
The day of the wedding. My daughter came wearing her dress and showing it off. She wanted to take a minute and look at. I turned around and saw that it was a white gown that looked like a wedding dress. I don't know what I felt but it wasn't right. I asked my wife why she let our daughter buy a white dress knowing that its inappropriate and unwanted at any wedding. She said it was no big deal and that our can't possibly be a distraction cause that's ridiculous. I was mad. I kept thinking what are mother and sister gonna say when they see it? I told my daughter she needed to go change or she isn't allowed to come when wearing this dress. She had a meltdown asking why. I told her its her choice after she refused and didn't allow her to come with us to the wedding. My wife screamed at me after my daughter went upstairs. Calling me an asshole for not letting her attend over a dress. Called me crazy to think my daughter would steal the attention and I ended up going alone.
My family knew. Some agreed with me while my sister blew up saying she wanted her niece there and I screwed up big time because it didn't matter if she wore white. She is a kid.
My wife and daughter haven't been talking to me eversince and no one seems to understand how I could've taken the blame if my daughter showed up in white.
All the people I know, including my best friend openly talk about their hatred for white people like it’s nothing, and yesterday I was looking through Instagram stories and my cousin who always posts racial equality shit posted a tiktok with a guy talking about how much he hates white people for no other reason than the fact that they’re white (and it went viral), which invalidated all the equality stuff she’s done before and made me lose all respect for her. Imagine if someone said they hate black people for no their reason than that they’re black.
P.S: before people call me biased I’m not white, I’m arab. I just don’t think racism is ever ok, no matter what race it’s toward
Edit: all the people getting offended in the comments can fuck off. This is my opinion and I’m gonna defend it.
Edit 2: I said a lot of rude and unnecessary things in the comments last night and I wanna apologize. I was tired, anxious and ticked off.
