The Racist World of the Rightwing Bloggers
These folks are the first to whine about how the leftwingers always make everything about race.
Here's a sampling of the comments on a very conservative blog as the DC shootings were reported.
Remember, these folks accuse lefties of bringing race into everything:

Always On WatchSeptember 16, 2013 at 11:29:00 AM EDT I heard that one shooter was black. But I've heard nothing about the other shooter(s). Any name(s)? AnonymousSeptember 16, 2013 at 11:25:00 AM EDT
THREE GUNMEN? Yes, THREE BLACK GUNMEN just in case anyone is curious. Washington Post reporting there are two shooters at D.C. Naval Base, one in fatigues Latest: One shooter described as 6 ft male, African American, bald with assault rifle. At least several confirmed injured, some fatally, including security personnel. Swat team now on premises but suspect still at large, believed holed up in room. President has been notified. Update: Shooter contained and wounded but not in custody; several killed, at least 10 wounded
So when they bring the shooter's race into the reporting, they're being...what? just providing information?
Did these same folks report that Adam Lanza, the Newtowne killer, was WHITE? That the Aurora, Colorado, killer was WHITE? That the Columbine killers were WHITE? That the Arizona killer was white? That the Fort Hood killer was WHITE? No. Of course not. They didn't discuss anything about the color of the killers' skins. But they did report on the fact that the killer involved in the DC shootings was BLACK, as soon as they found out. Why?
And why bring the race of the killer into this at all? Did they mention he was also from TEXAS? No! Just the fact that he was BLACK.
But...but...the leftwingers always make it about RACE?
Do these people ever do any self-reflection?
This has been another terrible day in America. A day that will be repeated again and again and again by white, black, and every other color. And that's what the American people have allowed the N.R.A. thugs to deliver to this country. Americans are willing to live with massacres like this one, like the one in Newtowne, like the one in Aurora, like the ones all over the country that we've had to endure and will endure in the future.
America, this is what you're willing to accept. Wholesale slaughter of our citizens by our own citizens. And for anyone reading this, let's hope the next victims are not your loved ones. Let's hope your children or grandchildren aren't slaughtered by some crazy loner with a grievance and an AR-15, let's hope your loved one isn't riddled with bullets by some unhappy person with a grudge at his place of employment. Just be aware that this is happening too often, and it can happen to you.
I don't care anymore.
I can't control what the N.R.A. and the crazy gun nuts do. All I can do is hope for the best and expect the worst.
So here we go again: Bury the dead and wait for the next carnage somewhere in our N.R.A distopia.
