FBI Director James Comey declined to label the Wednesday shooting at a predominantly black church in Charleston, S.C., as a terrorist act.

“Terrorism is act of violence done or threatens to in order to try to influence a public body or citizenry, so it’s more of a political act and again based on what I know so more I don’t see it as a political act,” Comey said at a press conference Friday in Baltimore.

Let’s see if I have this straight: someone who read and idolized hate groups plotted a symbolic act against a group of people, and in his manifesto hoped that others would take arms against that group to wipe them off the face of the earth…. and that doesn’t qualify as terrorism?

Racism runs deep in the USA.
