The source article for this post barely mentions that one of the shooter’s victims was white. Here’s what they left out:
The reporting offers a good example of how the MSM will take a story and shape it into “the narrative.”
Who do you think is the most danger to Asian Indians? Blacks or white males?
The answer is obvious. Until yesterday, I’d seen only one story on white on Hindu violence. I’m very certain that crime statistics would, if they were available, show that blacks attack Hindus at a much higher rate than whites.
But now, the entire Indian subcontinent is being sold a lie that racist white males make the U.S. too dangerous for the Hindu.
We might want Hindus to stay in India, but not on the basis of a lie that smears the white race.
Update: Sky News reports that donations to the dead man’s family have topped $500,000. Although many donations have come from Hindus, there’s some kind of white guilt thing going on here that I don’t fully understand.

The shooting of two engineers from India, possibly targeted for looking “Middle Eastern,” drew worldwide attention Friday and fanned growing concerns that America is not safe for immigrants.
In the incident Wednesday night at Austins Bar & Grill in Olathe, witnesses said a man told the two engineers to “get out of my country” before shooting one dead and wounding the other. A third man who tried to intervene was also shot.
News of of the shooting traveled quickly overseas.
The father of Alok Madasani, the Indian victim who survived, said anti-immigrant rhetoric encouraged by President Donald Trump created a dangerous environment for immigrants.
We knew they would blame Trump. The left is blaming him, so it’s not surprising that the folks back in India would do the same.
“The situation seems to be pretty bad after Trump took over…,” Madasani Jaganmohan Reddy told the Hindustan Times in India. “I appeal to all the parents in India not to send their children to the U.S. in the present circumstances.”
Well, there’s a lot of Americans who won’t mind a bit. American computer programmers might be able to get their jobs back.
Srinivas Kuchibhotla, a 32-year-old Garmin employee, was killed in the incident. Madasani, 32, who also worked for Garmin, and Ian Grillot, 24, who tried to stop the shooter, were injured.
The suspected shooter, Adam W. Purinton, 51, of Olathe, was caught early Thursday at an Applebee’s in Clinton, Mo. Before he was arrested, he reportedly told a bartender he had shot two Middle Easterners, The Star learned.
Purinton has been charged with first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder.
Reddy told the Indian newspaper that Purinton had picked an argument with the two engineers about why they were “staying in the U.S. illegally.” The men, he said, told Purinton they had valid work permits.
Venumadhav Gajula, Kuchibhotla’s brother-in-law, echoed concerns of changing sentiments toward foreigners after Trump’s election.
“It is very scary and people are panicking,” Gajula told the Los Angeles Times. “My advice would be to think twice about going to the U.S.”
As news of the shooting traveled, it also added to concern, particularly in the tech sector, about the ability to draw top foreign talent to American companies.
The FBI is investigating the shootings as a possible hate crime, which could underscore a view from the abroad that even isolated racism in the U.S. can make the country dangerous to foreigners.
The story goes on with more anti-Trump rhetoric and a claim that tech jobs are going unfilled and thus can only be filled by more brown immigrants.
The MSM is so predictable now. Most of us understood that the story was going to play out this way. Give yourself a pat on the back.
As to the MSM, give them the boot.
