Very sad that 9 people were killed at a predominantly Black/African-American church in Charleston, South Carolina. This is a gun issue but more importantly it is a racism issue.
You can see all the details of the story here at NBC News. Choice quote: “‘You rape our women and you’re taking over our country. And you have to go,’ the shooter told the group, according to the survivor’s account to Johnson.”
Racism is still rampant and pervasive in America today. And no, having a Black president does not mean racism has been solved.
President Obama delivered a heartfelt speech on the incident this morning. You can see the video below.
