From the Independent, a sad story this afternoon in the Big Apple:
Queens shooting: Imam dead as two men killed following afternoon prayers at New York mosque
Police said they were investigating the incident as a possible hate crime
Our semantic question is this: Would police call it hate crime if a Muslim shot a priest and a parishioner? Or would they call it terrorism?
We suspect the latter, don’t you?
So what’s the difference?
And how much blame must fall on the shoulders of Donald Trump?
