Here's a New York Times video regarding the shooting.
Notice Chris Mercer's photo is absent, the video only shows his white relatives. If I didn't already know that the shooter was black, I'd assume he was a white man. It appears the media is going to slyly manipulate the public into thinking he's white. I'd be willing to bet if you conducted man on the street interviews that 99.9% of people in the US will say this is a white man. I wonder how the FBI is going to categorize him.
