On April 19, 1995, a terrorist planted a bomb at the front of a federal building in Oklahoma City, blowing up the building and killing 168 people.

On July 17, 1996, a terrorist detonated explosives in Atlanta during the Summer Olympics, killing 1 person and injuring 111.

On June 17, 2015, a terrorist went into an African American church, was welcomed into its prayer group, and proceeded to kill 9 of the congregants.

On November 27, 2015, a terrorist invaded a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, killing 3, injuring 9.

All of theses terrorists were white.

Terrorism is what happens overseas. Or, if it happens here, it comes from overseas. Terrorism has a brown hue to it. When the perpetrator is white, it’s a lone nut, a mentally disturbed man. Anything but terrorism.
