A horrible chain of events occurred in Melbourne today. A man drove a car into a group of people, killing some and injuring others, including children. Some of the injured remain in a critical condition.
It wasn’t terrorism. Just an angry man in a car.
Funny, though. Nobody has mentioned his religion, and there have been no popular calls for his particular ethnic group to explain or apologise for his actions.
Nor should they be expected to. Ever.
It’s his responsibility, not theirs.
But you can bet your sweet patootie that it would be a different story if he were a Muslim or a recent immigrant from the Middle East.
We’re not judgemental, though. Nor racist. Mmmkay?
