Now we apologize for the truth?
Exactly why would the headline be considered racist? It’s not. The shooter was the racist, not the newspaper for reporting it. A cowardly reaction, by the newspaper. Why allow yourself to be forced to apologize for writing the truth? This paper is on Twitter (@memphisnews). Tell them publicly what you think of their pathetic political correctness.

A newspaper in Memphis quickly apologize after protesters complained about its choice of headline in the wake of the deadly police shooting in Dallas.
“Gunman targeted whites,” read the lead story headline in the Commercial Appeal, a member of the USA Today network. The headline was accurate, as Dallas gunman Micah Xavier Johnson explicitly talked about wanted to kill white police officers before he was eliminated via robot bomb.
That didn’t stop protesters from gathering outside the paper’s office in downtown Memphis on Wednesday to express their displeasure, some holding signs that read “Black Lives Matter.”
