Media Lies About Oregon Shooter’s Race

The lame stream media is waging a war on the Second Amendment and is abusing the First to achieve its end, from Infowars [1]:

According to The Gateway Pundit and Conservative Treehouse, CNN altered a photo of [Ass Hat], the Oregon shooter, to make him look white.

“On the left is the selfie Christopher Mercer uploaded to his social media,” the Conservative Treehouse reports. “On the right is how CNN presented the same selfie in broadcast stories about him. Why did CNN need to change the complexion (color) of their broadcast?”

CNN also did not show photos of [Ass Hat’s] mother, who is black.

The reason CNN altered the photo is obvious: the race of Mercer does not fit the narrative that only white males — and thus white supremacist — can be mass shooters.

Hat tip and reax, from my favorite insomniac, Sarah Hoyt, Instapundit [2]:

Oh, why not? After all entertainment weekly turned a Latin man, a Latina and a man in an interracial marriage into racist, sexist and homophobic bigots who want to keep women and minorities out of science-fiction. Dizinformazia. It’s what they do.

Give Sarah credit. She is the the fiction business and knows how to recognize fiction when the media tries to pawn it off as news.

By old convention (the one drop rule), a person with any black blood is considered to be black.  Those a person with one white parent and one black parent, such as say Barack Obama, is considered to black.   By social justice warrior logic, such as it is, race is considered to not a biological fact but mere a social construct.  Now the lame streams has taken to constructing a particular person’s race to fit the desired media narrative.
