Immigrant Image

On Monday, when I posted a memorial blog regarding Virginia Tech, I specifically mentioned that the post was not about “immigration, amnesty, or Americans who retire abroad.” It turns out, this story has unfortunately taken hold as an “immigrant” story. This article from today’s edition of Inside Higher Ed highlights how quickly this event became a conversation about immigration, ethnicity, and racial tension.

My only question is this: why is the conversation not centered on America’s problem with gun violence?
