After one woman was killed and seven other people were killed in a church shooting on Sunday morning, officials identified the perpetrator as 25-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samson. When confronted by an usher, Samson accidentally shot himself, and has been taken into police custody. The woman murdered by Samson has been identified as 39-year-old Melanie Crow, a single mother of two.

The FBI has launched a civil rights investigation regarding the blatantly racial character of the violent assault. “The Memphis FBI Field Office’s Nashville Resident Agency, the Civil Rights Division, and the US Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Tennessee have opened a civil rights investigation into the shooting at the Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, Tennessee,” said David Boling, spokesman for the U.S. attorney in Nashville.
“The FBI will collect all available facts and evidence. As this is an ongoing investigation we are not able to comment further at this time.”
The New York Post has identified Samson as an immigrant from Sudan, which is a majority Islamic country with over a 95% Muslim community. Notably, Sudan is also one of the six Muslim countries on Trump’s executive migration ban.
Samson’s actions can be considered to have been influenced by Colin Kaepernick and other black American football players who have opted to take the knee during the national anthem at football games. This can be assumed from his Facebook cover photo being a photo of a black man “taking a knee.” This action is supposed to exemplify one’s opposition to systemic racism and the historical racial issues that permeate the American identity. Evidently, the movement has extended beyond the football scene and into anti-white extremism in the person of Emanuel Samson.
So, surprise, surprise. The glory of multiculturalism has led to the death of a white woman, a phenomenon that will expand and multiply if not properly addressed. What is the world’s response to this outrageous display of racial hatred? Likely, tears of sympathy and prayers will be offered in the memory of a murdered white woman as the underlying cause of the atrocity continues to enjoy unquestioned prominence in our socio-political policies. There is no justification of this atrocity. Sudan was placed on Trump’s executive ban list for this very reason, yet somebody, somehow, somewhere will turn this situation around to the fault of whites.
The West is crumbling in the name of tolerance and co-existence. Will Americans awaken to the reality of cultural collapse around them? Or will they continue to enjoy willful ignorance of the dangers of radical inclusion? The clock is ticking, but as always, the pendulum swings.
