Are you serious?
ARE YOU SERIOUS?
You're (the media) telling me, that a psycho who crashed his plane into a federal building is
NOT a terrorist? That he was totally justified in committing this treacherous act?
Or that it was just a 'suicide' attempt by a 'disgruntled engineer' ?
I can distinctly remember the words used towards the same 'disgruntled psychiatrist' who shot up the Fort Hood military base, a couple months back.
"Muslim" "ties to Al-Qaeda" "Jihad"
And here we have news networks tip toeing around using the word 'terrorist' against one of their own.
Using neutral descriptions so as not to reveal his 'background' (White, Male)
Kind of like last Friday's school shootings, right? (Even that article is ridiculous, pressures on tenure process? That woman was CRAZY! She KILLED her brother 20 years ago!)
... you know, I actually have no words for the anger I feel inside (not angry enough to go shooting up places however, because I'd automatically be linked with terrorist groups because ya know, of my own background -snark-)
Just think for a moment if these two recent incidents of violence (Premeditated! Not Random!) were committed by a minority or a muslim (or a Muslim who is a minority! GASP)
How much news coverage do you think would be happening? How much speculation on their background and dubious ties would be made?
This, folks, is why I'm starting to think the world is inherently unjust.
With such privilege keeping people from being seen as the horrible murderers they are and letting them possibly get away with it ( "But he/she was such a NICE guy/girl)
And the same privilege making automatic suspicions against myself and my people (PoCs, Muslims), why even bother doing good? (or believing in good)
Modest Justice (rethinking the justice in this country)
[Author's Note: I'm not depressed at how fucked up this country is, (excuse my language) or even how this world is. Just doing a large -facepalm- for the media seeing as how once again, by leaving out certain details and painting a totally different picture of events, it only reinforces certain stereotypes against a people when said people aren't even present.
Don't worry about my mental health readers, lol, it's all good]
