Tulsa Shootings: Hate Crime or No Hate Crime?

Share |

Harpers Weekly Review, April 10, 2012:

Police in Oklahoma arrested Jake England and Alvin Watts in conjunction with the murders of three African Americans who were among five shot in the course of seven hours in Tulsa.

The day before the shootings, England posted on his Facebook page that it was the second anniversary of his father’s murder “at the hands of a f***ing nigger.” “It’s hard not to go off between that and sheran I’m gone in the head,” he wrote, referring also to his girlfriend, who had recently committed suicide.

“It is way too early to call this a hate crime,” said FBI agent James Finch.

Yes, I can feel it too! But I don't know that it will be a Civil Rights movement. I feel that we might need a more intense word for it....maybe like "Revolution?"
