Professional race agitator, DeRay McKesson, is the living embodiment of the axiom that when you’re holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail.
When news broke Wednesday that a man fatally shot a Virginia news crew, McKesson took to social media to blame the white man for yet another indiscretion involving firearms.
“Some say ‘disgruntled employee,’ others say ‘terrorist.’ Whiteness will explain away nearly anything,” the activist posted on Twitter.
Except for one thing — the gunman was black.
It didn’t take long for McKesson, who’s often nearby when racial discord rears its ugly head in the streets of America, to figure this out all by himself as he quickly deleted his tweet.
Except for one thing — the Internet is forever.
National Review writer Charles C.W. Cooke captured a screen shot of McKesson’s brilliantly inaccurate assessment:
According to a “manifesto” beset with racial hatred that the Virginia killer, Vester Lee Flanagan II, faxed to ABC News after Wednesday’s shooting, it was the “whiteness” of his victims that led to their demise, which was accurately pointed out by one social media user.
But don’t expect DeRay McKesson and his Black Lives Matter crew to cry foul over this abject racism.
Here’s the aforementioned tweet and a sampling of other responses from Twitter:

@LeahRBoss @FemsHaveBallz @deray So does whiteness explain away why the victims got shot, too?

@charlescwcooke @VekTorBK Do black people ever get tired of blaming white people for every failure and poor choice in their lives.

@charlescwcooke Willing to bet serious money this won’t stop him from making the same claim next time something like this happens.
