World News #17 – Racism is Alive

Articles

“The Daily Show has opened tonight with a powerful monologue from host Jon Stewart slamming the deaths in Charleston and the culture that seeks to deny that racism is behind such attacks.

Prior to introducing his guest – Nobel peace prize-winner Malala Yousafzai – Stewart said his show would contain no jokes tonight in the wake of the Charleston massacre.”

“In a Facebook profile apparently belonging to Roof, a portrait showed him wearing a jacket emblazoned with the flags of apartheid-era South Africa and of the former Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, both formerly ruled by white minorities.

Roof had been to jail and court records show a pending felony drug case and a past misdemeanor trespassing charge, Associated Press reported.

This shooting “should be a warning to us all that we do have a problem in our society,” said state Rep. Wendell Gilliard, a Democrat whose district includes the church.

“There’s a race problem in our country. There’s a gun problem in our country. We need to act on them quickly.”

The attack came two months after the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man, Walter Scott, by a white police officer in neighbouring North Charleston, which increased racial tensions. The officer awaits trial for murder, and the shooting prompted South Carolina to pass a law, co-sponsored by Pinckney, to equip police statewide with body cameras.

The website for the church said it has one of the largest and oldest African-American congregations in the region. It was built in 1891 and is considered a historically significant building, according to the National Park Service.”
