by Philippe Gastonne, The Daily Bell:
In a literal sense, the word “tragedy” does not describe what happened in Charleston, South Carolina last week. Storms and earthquakes are tragic. No human summons these events and no human can stop them.
Murder, on the other hand, is entirely human. It occurs when one human takes from another that which no one can restore: life itself.
Dylann Roof’s own words and history suggest he may not consider himself a “murderer.” Somewhere within his twisted mind is the belief black people are not quite human, that they somehow lack the same right to life as others. Killing them was thus no less appropriate than killing animals in a commercial slaughterhouse.
