'White people can't be terrorists.'

We’ve been told this for years. Not directly, perhaps, but when a white person bombs a church or massacres a school or flies a plane carrying 150 people into a mountainside, killing everyone on board, it’s hard to draw any other conclusion.

Disturbed? Yes. Mentally ill? Probably. A troubled outcast? Of course. But “terrorist”? That term is reserved for a special type of person, someone with brown skin, a foreign-sounding name, roots in the Middle East or North Africa and a progressively anti-Western Internet history — probably typed in Arabic.

Terrorists, we’re told, are Muslim. And if anything happens to disrupt that notion, we have a really hard time explaining it.

Texas’ new American history text books won’t include:The Ku Klux KlanJim Crow LawsThe primary role of slavery in the Civil WarAnd that’s just the beginning. Facts on segregation are almost completely missing. All of this is, of course, by design.
