The slow and petty media coverage on the Chapel Hill shooting massively implies that Muslim victims are not much worth of a read. Instead it’s the Muslim offenders that keeps papers selling. The lack of coverage shows us just how much the West has dehumanised Muslims. Thank god for Twitter, otherwise I would have never known about the shooting. The people of Twitter expressing their concern over how biased the media is and how biased the West is in general. If you are not aware of what the #ChapelHillShooting please visit http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/chapel-hill-shooting-the-latest-act-of-terror-has-just-been-committed-in-america-but-the-media-has-ignored-it-because-the-victims-were-muslim-10038624.html
If you are aware, then you are probably aware of CNN news now assuming the shooting happened over a parking dispute. *Sighs* it’s funny when it’s a Muslim victim, his/her religion has nothing to do with the crime. But when it’s a Muslim offender his/her religion has affiliated the crime. The only reason why the media has now made an effort to release more articles on the shooting is indeed due to Twitter’s outrage. The people took it into their hands to get word out as we all know the media doesn’t like to show Muslims in the victim light.
In all honesty, I am now just waiting for CNN news to release a breaking headline expressing the mass murderer’s “mental illness” as they do so well, whenever it comes to any White offender. The murderer is a radicalised atheist, yes this term sounds odd as of course words like “Terrorist” and “Radicalised” are only to interpret Muslim offenders. Also Richard Dawkins demanded an apology of every Muslim for crimes committed by “radicalists”. Well, now the tables have turned, we have a White American atheist who shot 3 young Muslim students. Therefore, I now demand an apology from Dawkins too as it is only fair and of course I am only following Dawkins logic.
Another, interesting thing to see is how people are claiming that religion has nothing to do with this mass murder. Now to those who live in a bubble somewhere in Disney Land I ask, imagine the roles reversed. Imagine, a Muslim American man who shoots 3 White American atheists. Would you still be preaching the same bullshit? Or nah?
