Broken white men and the racist media that fuels their terrorism

After these White Terror attacks I keep going back to the New Yorker article from two years ago by Toni Morrison, Mourning for Whiteness  This is an artists take on this problem.  Today the Sydney Morning Herald calls it out explicitly as journalism.

Broken white men and the racist media that fuels their terrorism

The bring up the fact that:

… 100 per cent of all terrorist attacks carried out on US soil in 2018 were carried out by right-wing extremists.

Time to take this seriously yet?  I’m guessing the people in charge largely don’t feel threatened because they aren’t the targets. Is that the way it is supposed to work?  I know if any other ethnic group were shooting up non-ethnic places of worship like this action would be swift and extreme, almost certainly too extreme.  We are waiting.
