"What you've seen in some of the statements that have been made by these terrorist organizations is that they do not regard African life as valuable in and of itself. They see it as a potential place where you can carry out ideological battles that kill innocents without regard to long-term consequences for their short-term tactical gains."Does he think terrorists are not thinking rationally when the bomb black areas? Does he think the terrorists would have a better posture if they did not target locations in predominately black nations? Does he think that terrorist targets are only of the white or western type?
Terrorists attract any group that feels hopeless, be they Arabs in Gaza, blacks in Kampala, or white in urban England.
Politicians that place the racist card in the case of terrorism are grasping at straws. Whether is is Jesse Jackson accusing the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team of racism or Obama accusing Al Qaeda of racism in its bombing targets, the racism card is spent.
