  1. What happened in New Zealand is what so many Muslims & others fear every day.

    A white supremacist will take their lives because of who they are and what they believe.

    Racism. Xenophobia. Islamophobia. All of it contributed to this unspeakable tragedy.

  2. the shooter was targeting on muslims , so its pretty much obvious they he had a motivation behind it , political one or religion one , and the attack was not motivated by race or anything , cuz the victims were all mixed race , so it was a terrorist attack , it was not just shooting or mass shooting ,
