Would it be Inappropriate to Suggest That the Charleston, SC Shooting is Just Too Convenient?

I suppose it is merely a coincidence that just as the “racial identity” conversation regarding white NAACP chapter president, Rachel Dolezal, (who successfully masqueraded as black for several years), was getting interesting, with the potential of philosophically redefining all racial politics in this country, we get the Charleston, SC shooting. A shooting which comes complete with a young, white, blond-haired, male, uber-racist, bearing a frightening, psychotic, kill-em-all scowl, a seething racist “manifesto”, and a portfolio absolutely buxom with Confederate-flag-waving scenes…a vault of hateful images to rival even the most prolific of Ku Klux Klan propagandists. And I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that the conversation has now shifted back to the same old, tired, yet dependable, rile-up-the-base demagoguery of arguments concerning public displays of the confederate flag, institutional and systemic racism, and gun control.

Yes…I’m sure I’m way off base thinking that there is anything more here than what the news is telling me
