Tulsa Shooter: I’m Not Racist

Despite being charged with a hate crime in the Tulsa shootings that killed three and wounded two—all black in a predominantly black neighborhood—19-year-old Jake England says that he is not racist. Prosecutors have pounced on a April 5 message on his Facebook page, in which England said that his father was killed by an “f---ing n----r.” After his arrest, England said that he used the words to vent anger at the man who killed his father, and not as a blanket statement, and that he has friends of all races.
