A BuzzFeed News journalist suggested on Twitter there would be more outrage from President Trump’s administration over the deadly Sri Lanka bombings if the victims were white.
BuzzFeed News world editor Miriam Elder tweeted hours after explosions on Easter Sunday killed hundreds of people at churches and hotels in the South Asia country.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Suspect we’d be hearing a lot more outrage from Trump and co. if the Christians killed in Sri Lanka were white,” Elder tweeted with a link to BuzzFeed News’ article on the attacks.
Elder’s tweet was “ratioed,” meaning the number of comments vastly outnumbered retweets and likes — a sign of widespread negative reaction. Multiple users criticized Elder for her near-instant politicization of the attacks that has killed more than 200 people, including some American citizens.

I suspect we wouldn’t be hearing any less bigotry or hate from you if they were.
