The one year anniversary of Dylann Storm Roof’s White Terrorist assault on Mother Emanuel A.M.E. church was wholly concealed by the carnage at a gay Orlando, Florida club. The incident has been incorrectly branded the “deadliest mass shooting in American history” – which again obfuscates untold decades of genocidal rampages against black people. The deluge of media coverage on the attacks has produced conflicting information; one report alleged that the suspected killer, Omar Mateen, made Racist comments about black people, while differing accounts stated that he spared black people’s lives because they had already suffered enough. This week marked other notable moments in the annals of White Terrorism. Mississippi’s James Meredith recognized the half century since his “March Against Fear” – where he was shot by a White Race Soldier. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Kwame Toure (Stokely Carmichael) and others joined the campaign, and Toure made is famous proclamation of “Black Power.” This week was also the 40 year anniversary of the Soweto student uprisings in South Africa. Black students were maimed and killed countering the 1976 apartheid regime. Current South Africans note that most of those same problems with White Supremacy remain.
