The establishment media is reporting that authorities cannot identify a clear motive in the Washington Navy Yard shooting that left 12 victims dead.
WJLA-TV in Washington, D.C., reported that a motive remained unknown and Fox News said that Washington Mayor Vincent Gray confirmed there was still no motive for the shootings and no indication of terrorism, “although we haven’t ruled that out.”
But at the bottom of NBC’s report are details of how the suspect, Aaron Alexis, 34, was “not happy with America” and wrestled with another festering issue.
“He felt a lot of discrimination and racism with white people especially,” Kristi Suthamtewkal told the reporter.
She also said that Alexis had felt like he had been cheated out of money from the contract under which he had worked and complained that he was mistreated because he was black.
Colin Flaherty, who has documented hundreds of cases of black-on-white violence in recent years in his book “White Girl Bleed A Lot: The Return of Racial Violence to America and How the Media Ignore It,” said it’s not surprising that a facet such as antipathy over race would be overlooked or played down.
