Monday morning most Americans woke up to news of the horror in Las Vegas.  One man with an automatic rifle killing nearly 60 people and wounding hundreds more.

Oh, God! Dont let him be……..

For millions of Americans, there was a sigh of relief for Mexicans, Muslims and other black\brown skinned Americans. The killer was white and possibly christian.

This weekend, were not likely to see an increase of attacks on Mosque’s in America.  Not likely to see an increase of harassment of brown, black people and there wont be random attacks on Caucasians because of the actions Stephen Paddock a 64 year old white man living in a senior community in Nevada.

 

American Made Terror

The attack in Las Vegas was beyond horrific   It will be years or decades for the families of the victims of this attack to recover.  The attack has forever altered the lives of the people attending that concert, and for the rest of us altered our sense of safety at a concert.  As the attack at the theater in Aurora, Colorado has changed mine.

Many Americans believe Muslin’s are a danger to America, believe that Black Americans are inherently criminals  dangerous and must be handled differently by the police then White Americans and was recently told by Our President, that some Mexicans are prone to do bad things. Who are the some?

I love my country ,it is deeply flawed.  In principle, we should be treated the same.  Implausible as it seems too many, there were a few blacks, Mexicans and Muslims at that concert who like country music.   Americans
