Racist Kansas Half Staff Flag

So interesting. Governor Sam Brownback, of Kansas, has ordered that flags be flown at half staff in memory of the victims of the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, but did not do the same when Dylann Roof waltzed into a South Carolina church and shot nine people at a Bible study. Both incidents were unexpected, both incidents were unjustified, both incidents resulted in untimely death, and both incidents resulted in terror, and could therefore be labeled "terrorism". Why would Brownback care about one set of victims, but not the other? Here's a guess: Dylann Roof's victims were black, while the people shot in San Bernardino were mostly white. Yep. Brownback and most of Kansas appear to have double standards. 

May all of the victims of both mass shootings rest in peace.
