In my last post, and VLOG (James Holmes: Shooter or Terrorist?), I talked about BIG media labeling James Holmes a “shooter” as opposed to a terrorist.

In this VLOG I talk about James Holmes if he was not white.  We’d see a different story told, and a very different James Holmes.

Why are we seeing the James Holmes we see?  Why are we being told the story of James Holmes we are being told?

  1. thank you for bringing this up. i was thinking the same thing. when white men commit horrific violence there are often narratives about “what drove him to do this?” and the possibility of mental illness. when the perpetrator is a man of colour the narratives are about terrorism or gang violence taking over ‘nice neighborhoods’ and men of colour presented as inherently violent.
