I don't agree with the cancellation of #Roseanne . Why? I don't believe racism was in her heart or mind when she made the comment. It was one of a series of jokes focused on her targets' intellect & world view, and she didn't stop to think about the term's use as a slur.
(1) If I thought Roseanne had intentionally lashed out with a racist remark, I would be on the bandwagon with #ABC 's decision. But I do not, and I'm doubtful that ABC leadership actually thinks that she is a racist.
(1) @jasoninthehouse has it right. We're sorely lacking #mentalhealth resources to identify and treat people who become #masskillers. If politicians honestly want to stop these murderers, that's where they should start.
(2) Going after the method of killing is next to useless. They'll use trucks, explosives, guns, cars, knives, etc. Take one away (which itself is next to impossible) and they will find another. We've seen it happen repeatedly.
