Orlando Nightclub Massacre And The Race Factor

Orlando tragedy shed light on how hate and terrorism can destroy innocent lives within a matter of seconds.

My heart was and still is heavy and tears run down my cheeks as I read about this tragedy. I cannot fathom thinking about how a man would do such a thing to his fellow man. This is a proof that the enemies within American soil are more dangerous than outside and something should be done about it.

The massacre, which has resulted in the killing of at least 49 people (large percentage of them being whites), is widely characterized as the deadliest mass shooting in U. S. history, and worst terrorist attack on U. S. soil.

A witness reported on how he asked people their race and then set them free.

He said, ‘Didn’t I say don’t text? Give me your phones. Who’s here? Are you guys blacks?’ The couple said yeah. He said, ‘I don’t have an issue with the blacks.’ And then he got on the phone. I don’t know if it was the news or the police department, telling them America needs to stop bombing ISIS.”

Still many black lives were lost that day. The mother of one of the victims shared the last message she got from her son moments before his death.

I am grieved by this tragedy; it shouldn’t have happened in the first place but for the government and some major news reporters to exaggerate in this manner as though nothing like this has ever happened in the U.S., makes me even sadder and disappointed.

In 1921, a White mob resulted in the lynching of Dick Rowland, a Black man suspected of assaulting a White woman in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This ended in a riot, involving airplanes, which firebombed Black Wall Street from the air. It took less than 12 hours to kill 3000 Blacks.

In 1919, Black sharecroppers protested against illegal seizure of their land by White men. White planters arranged an organized attack on their opponents, which ended with mass lynching of 237 Blacks.

Not to mention of the MOVE bombing in Philadelphia, an act of state sponsored terrorism, in which Philadelphia police dropped a bomb on the roof of a raw house in a Black section of West Philadelphia on Mother’s Day in 1985.

Domestic terrorism is not new to America, and certainly with regard to violence against Black people — even as these acts often are not regarded as acts of terrorism or hate crimes.

How sad, as though Blacks are not a part of this nation.
