What is causing all this violent racism?

Republican candidates reaffirm gun rights support after Charleston shooting
Less than one day after a white gunman killed nine people at a prayer meeting at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, Republican presidential candidates touted their support for the right to bear arms before a mass gathering of conservatives.

NRA Board Member Blames Victims
NRA board member Charles Cotton blamed Clementa Pinckney, a victim of the shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, for his own death. He also blamed Pinckney, the pastor of Emanuel AME and a state senator, for the deaths of the other eight people killed.

Why? Asks a country with over 1000 white power groups, 24-7 hate radio, the NRA and the GOP backed by them all. #Charleston - Kona Lowell

The War On Democrats
“[The gunman] hears that because he watches the news and he watches things like Fox News, where they talk about things that they call news, but they’re really not. They use that coded language, they use hate speech, they talk about the president as if he’s not the president, they talk about churchgoers that they’re not really churchgoers. And that’s what this young man acted on. That’s why you can walk into a church and treat people like animals when they’re really human beings.”

If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich. ~ John F. Kennedy inaugural address, January 20, 1961

Oh, Those Lovely Loopholes
The House Ethics Committee approved a waiver last year that allowed Rep. Charlie Dent — now chairman of the secretive panel — to fly to a posh New England vacation town on the dime of a top campaign donor.

Racism. It's Everywhere.
An African-American lawmaker in Kansas could be expelled from the statehouse for accusing supporters of legislation that eliminated tuition breaks for undocumented immigrants of being racist. State Rep. Valdenia Winn (D) of Kansas City will face a special investigative committee in a hearing June 26 that will weigh possible sanctions against the lawmaker for the remarks.

Fox News Spin Can Cause Your Head To Explode
Within hours after Wednesday evening’s horrific massacre at a Charleston, S.C., church, police openly labeled the violence a “hate crime” after a witness said suspect Dylann Storm Roof declared that he came to kill black people. And yet, somehow, a handful of Fox News hosts and pundits refused to concede the racial aspect, instead making the story about the so-called “War on Christians.”

Larry Wilmore got a hold of all that footage and declared that the network’s coverage “makes my fucking head explode.
