If this shooter was a victim he would be called a person of colour.
If Zimmerman was a victim he would be called a person of colour.
The American media is clearly trying to incite some kind of racial conflict.
They do it all the time. Last year, an Arab murdered some black people but the media pretended it was a white person. As soon as the facts were clear the case was dropped from the media.
Also, the European media do the same thing. Look at how they acted with the recent killings in France with the Islamic extremist --they had rolling news blaming white people for days before the truth came out.
This is really starting to annoy me. +rep when i can.
Regardless of whether one was white or not (the uppermost criminal is clearly not of Anglo-Saxon or Germanic skin-tone); Mr England's excuse is ridiculous and irrational:
'My dad was killed by a f****** n*****': Suspect in shooting spree that killed three African-Americans and wounded two others talked of grudge against black community....
By this logic:
One whose father was killed by one of the incoming airliners flying into Tower One of the World Trade Center says: "My dad was killed by a f****** Muslim". He then proceeds to slaughter three random Muslims in his neighbourhood.
Yet, more likely:
My grandmother is slaughtered by a White male of Anglo-Saxon descent. I now say: "My grandma was killed by a White f*cker!". I then proceed to slaughter any random white person I see on the streets of England (this is not hard considering those of Anglo-Saxon descent make up more than 85% of the British population.)
The moral of the story is: Don't be stupid. Don't generalise.

Indeed, but the point i'm making is that the media are intentionally trying to stir up racial tensions. The media are doing this deliberately, its not an accident.
Another case of racial incitement:

One of the dudes isn't even white. I feel sorry for the 3 guys who were killed and the 2 who were injured. Clearly there is a lot of racial hatred in America atm. One of the shooters appears to have done it as his father was killed by a black man (not that I'm saying this validities his actions just that I can understand why it might cause him to hate black people). I'm getting sick of the media though.
Erm.... no, that doesn't quite make sense.
So, if a white man killed my mother, you would understand why that might cause me to hate white people?
Don't think this is anything other than the media looking to cause outrage so people will get more interested in the issue and as a result watch/buy their products.
The first guy is clearly not white, if i had to take a guess i would say he is Polynesian. Media bias isn't new and highlights the importance of not jumping the gun on issues after reading an article in a tabloid paper.
I think George Zimmermans actions were highly questionable and I don't believe he's entirely innocent, however that picture made me chuckle.
