New Age Terrorists

Terrorist.

A person who is a threat to national security

Through acts of violence and intimidation

With brown skin, a weird name

And above all a minority

59 dead, 500 injured and counting

23 firearms, 16 of which are rifles

Claims by ISIS that he was one of their own

But white America won’t label him a terrorist

A privilege afforded since he worked in accounting

White America has a narrative to tell

A divisive story to sell

And if it doesn’t fit the story (read caucasian)

You’re conveniently placed in another category

Lone wolf, sniper, shooter, gunman

All these terms used to describe

the domestic terrorist who committed the worst shooting in American history

All because he was a white man
