|Jeremy Christian has been arraigned for murders of two men on a Portland commuter train.|
Regarding “Laying down your life,” June 2, page 1:
I think it’s misleading and not very thorough journalism simply to call [attacker Jeremy Christian] a racist and extremist. This also contributes to the division and tension in our communities. If you had read his Facebook page, you would have found him to be a self-proclaimed nihilist, a Bernie Sanders supporter, a Black Lives Matter supporter, a Dakota Access Pipeline protest supporter and antagonistic toward religious people.
Islam is a religion of all ethnicities, so being antagonistic toward Muslims doesn’t make him a racist, it makes him a bigot and a hateful person. Nuance means something. Please be more thorough.
