    I guess I'm pretty random...
    I see. So this is about the colour of your skin?

    Well that's not really helpful but we know he's not black.

    What will you give me if he does end up being from an Islamic background?
    Errr, give you? Well I won't give you anything. If it turns out he's a Muslim then that'll be a bummer because then the Islamophobes will have 0.00001% more proof to validate their hate.

    It would be rather useful. As someone on twitter pointed out, he appears to be wearing a WWII German stahlhelm (helmet). WWII German memorabilia seems to be rather popular among those with far right sympathies.

    Its been reported that he has far right sympathies. If that is true, do we label him a terrorist? Or, because a lot of people are reluctant to label someone they may identify with (skin colour, ethnicity, whatever) a terrorist, do we simply label him mad?

    I know what I'm gonna say sounds rather silly but it still could be a non white person who wears that because he's a little bit crazy, I mean, he did do a sword attack on a school.

    Or possibly both. A mad terrorist.

    A non-white person who has a white neck? Could it be a zebra?

    Could be a very light skinned asian, trust me I've seen a few. Google Sami Zayn.

    I couldn't really make out the shade of that neck due to the shade/ everything.

    It doesn't seem likely, does it?

    It seems that the photo was taken when he posed with pupils in the school before commencing the slaughter:

    Astonishing.

    -_-

    Well I haven't seen that picture have I? All I've seen is the one the guy guy posted which was just a headshot where he had his helmet on and cos of the shade couldn't see his eyes. Don't need to be a douche.

    Thank you anyway, this should keep the racists mouths shut.

    But if he wasn't a Muslim (not saying he is, don't even think he is). No one will even bat an eye on the story

    White, black, asian, pacific islander, mixed race. You know the races of people who have 2 arms and can use a sword?

    Goes with all religion and atheism as well.
    I always laugh at how people lump "atheism" in with all the other religions, as if refusing to join your club puts you into a club of your own.

    People are terrorists whether you identify with them or not.

    If this guy was far-right then he was a terrorist, just like Anders Breivik was a terrorist.
