"Gibson: Whites commit suicide, blacks ‘shoot and move on.’"

A student in Cleveland yesterday shot four people at a high school before killing himself. On his radio show that day, Fox News’s John Gibson claimed that he “could tell right away” that the shooter was white:

He killed himself. Hip-hoppers do not kill themselves. They walk away. Now, I didn’t need to hear the kid was white with blond hair. Once he’d shot himself in the head, no hip-hopper. [...]

And I could tell right away ’cause he killed himself. Black shooters don’t do that; they shoot and move on.
