New York City Councilwoman assumed that “white supremacy” was to blame for the mass shooting that took place at a hospital on Wednesday in Tulsa, Okla. Rodneyse Bichotte Hermelyn, who represents neighborhoods in Brooklyn, linked the shooting to “white supremacy,” despite the shooter being black.

“We can’t even process one mass shooting before the next occurs. Today’s atrocity in Tulsa happened on the 101st anniversary of the Tulsa Black Wall Street massacre. White Supremacy is clearly a factor,” Rodneyse Bichotte Hermelyn wrote {snip}


The shooter reportedly killed himself after shooting four people to death just before 5 pm at Saint Francis Hospital. {snip}

Tulsa Deputy Police Chief Eric Dalgleish said that the shooter was a black male between 35 and 40 years old. {snip}

Police reported that there were multiple casualties and a “catastrophic scene” at the medical facility. The gunman’s motive was not immediately known, nor was that shooter’s identity.
