If Tucson shooter were Muslim, would the discussion be different?


It was only a matter of time.

Some of us are still in a state of shock but many of us expected something like this to happen sooner or later.

With all the hateful rhetoric that is being spewed via television networks, radio shows, protests and marches, the gruesome shooting in Tucson, Arizona sends a serious message that if it doesn’t stop, this could be just the beginning.


The worst may be yet to come.

Over the last few years alone, since the election of President Obama, we have witnessed a heightened culture of hate, violence, bigotry, death threats, religious intolerance, vicious political foolery, racial tension, divisiveness, unceasing character assassinations and outright plots of murder.

Is this the America the beautiful that this country sings about? I don’t think so. It’s extremely ugly right now.

I looked at my cell phone in pain when learning that Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords had been shot in the head and others had been killed or injured. It was saddening to read that 9-year-old Christina Green, who was known as a young community activist according to her parents, will never have a chance to grow up to reach her full potential. She may have been one of those future giants necessary to change the course of degradation that this country is on.

However, we will never know because the alleged 22-year-old shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, chose to take their lives.

Sorry, but I’m not buying into the mainstream media’s attempt to portray Mr. Loughner as a nutcase who didn’t know what he was doing. If he was of another race, how would this story be handled right now? What if he was a Muslim?

Think about it.
