Im in Boston(for now until the big move
) and this doesn't upset me .... but I can understand why it would upset someone else.
Its to often that the media will try and create a caricature of a criminal. They do this with black people in general often right,(welfare queen/ N*g.gaz in hoodies ect) which is terrible because we aren't seen, in a lot of cases, as just "normal", regular hard workers ect
But what I get from this (and I could be wrong because i havent read the article) is that this nig..ga Tarsyno, or however you spell it was some "normal looking", well liked by his peers teenager with no history of mental instability from an eastern European heritage. He was virtually Americanized right. He's not an obvious middle Eastern looking Muslim, He sure as hell ain't Black or Asian, He wasn't wearing a hoody and looking "suspicious". By all accounts he LOOKED relatively "average", and that has these white people in Boston and in general shook because they cant use primitive racial and visual profiling techniques to protect themselves from a relatively average looking kid who is willing to blow some shyt up. The terrorism is at their door step and its by someone whom they can't quite put a caricature too.
I remember Chris Rock has a joke about how little white Suburban kids after so many school shootings are gonna be like "I wanna go to a black school in the hood where its safe". Yeah well these mass shootings are not confined to the classroom. These wild and crazy whts will blow up your beloved SACRED Marathon too...and we all know a marathon is like the all time whitest of the whitest of events where you find middle and upper class white people.
Its like white people (collectively) have forgotten that they are some of the biggest terrorist of all time...Yeah son... the chickens are coming home to roost.
