When I heard that there was an active shooter in Boulder, Colorado, my first thoughts weren't “Oh my god, how awful.” Nor were they “I hope not too many people get hurt.” My first thoughts were “Oh no, not again,” and “I wonder if this one is race-based as well.”

The fact that THESE were the things that I thought, instead of the former two, should be pretty telling. It is revolting how close to each other the Atlanta spa shooting, and this Boulder Colorado shooting were to each other. 6 days is the total amount of time that passed…
