We are Violent Everywhere

From the NYT:

Clyde Bellecourt, founder of the Minneapolis-based American Indian Movement, said he could not "remember anything as tragic as this happening" on a reservation.

"Everyone in the Indian community is feeling really bad right now, whether they're a member of the Red Lake or not, we're all an extended family, we're all related," he said."Usually this happens in places like Columbine, white schools, always somewhere else.
We never hear that in our community."

And white people always think it is something that only happens at black schools or poor schools or city schools. Perhaps it is time that Americans accept that we are a violent society and that this violence can happen anywhere and everywhere.
