Several prominent liberals rushed to blame “white man” for a recent Boulder, Colorado shooting without knowing the shooter’s identity.
The shooter in question is not white. In fact, he’s originally from the Middle East. This tiny detail has derailed many of the liberals that were quick to assume, forcing them to delete their premature, racial-charged tweets.
“Race and Inclusion editor” from USA Today Hemal Jhaveri kicked off the day’s white bashing with this tweet:

Author and lawyer Qasim Rashid tweeted:
Tamir Rice was a 12-year-old black child. Police shot him in 1.7 sec & let him suffer in agonizing pain for 4 min & die.
Colorado terrorist is a grown white man who killed 10 people including a cop. Cops arrested him alive & helped him to a stretcher for immediate medical care.

Even VP Kamala Harris’ niece jumped the gun:

Harris since deleted the tweet, explaining she assumed the shooter was white because he was taken into custody alive.
I deleted a previous tweet about the suspect in the Boulder shooting. I made an assumption based on his being taken into custody alive and the fact that the majority of mass shootings in the U.S. are carried out by white men.

Prominent liberal journalist CJ Werleman tweeted:
The suspected gunman in the Boulder, Colorado mass shooting is a white guy. Seven reported dead!
Cue “mental issues,” “bad day,” “parking dispute,” or anything else other than what he most likely is – a white domestic terrorist. pic.twitter.com/v0ukqWtIVN

Feminist author Amy Siskind tweeted:
The shooter is was taken into custody.
In other words it was almost certainly a white man (again). If he were Black or Brown he would be dead.

And to top it off, the most radical Congressperson in America’s history Rep. Ilhan Omar piled on:
So “he’s Muslim” is trending, did I miss “he’s Christian” trending for last week’s Atlanta mass murderer? pic.twitter.com/1UHU6Iens5

The Boulder shooter has been identified as Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, 21, of Arvada, Colorado.
A closer look at his Facebook page reveals strong praise for Islam and shame for not having a girlfriend. His page also reveals that he’s originally from Syria.
