    What a tragedy based on hatred. I would like to know how the white racist on yahoo that are always posting negavtive things about other nationalities feel about one of their own shoothing their own kind and killing six others out of hatred. Before you start throwing stones at other nationalities take a look at yours and tell me who is really sick.

    Are you KIDDING me "unkkkk"?! This shooting has nothing to do with ANY nationality!!!!! For ANYBODY to EVER base a killing spree on someones race is absolutely absurd and frankly disgusting!!! This is such a sad moment in time, and I can't stand the fact that there are really people out there that can kill a fellow American. Race should NEVER EVER be an issue!!!! And if there really are white racist people out there, that disgusts me just as much!!!

    This shooting may not have been racially motivated; but the fervent, never-ending resistance to President Obama and the work that he is trying to do is definitely race-based. No president has ever had to endure such disrespect. Members of the senate interrupt his speeches, talk-show windbags openly hope that he fails. How patriotic is that? To want to see your own country FAIL? Even publications resist using his title, only referring to him as Obama. The man should always be referred to as PRESIDENT Obama. He will never admit it, but President Jimmy Carter did. The resistance to this president is race-based.

    [...] Peace. Love. Unity. Respect. In the second image I see people in the background mourning and crying in front of a large memorial outside of Gifford’s office. These eight people, all of different race, gender, color, and creed, stand together. Unity. They pray for reconciliation. Peace. Others across the country take a moment of silence to honor the victims. Respect. They all leave flowers or a note of hope for the victims. Love. In the foreground a kind soul left four words taped to the sides of boxes to remind us of our humanity. It is very apparent from the photograph that the Tucson victims will not be forgotten. [...]
