CNN, LA Times report Chris Mercer as ‘white,’ label him a ‘supremacist’, ignore Black Lives Matter love

Chris Mercer, the shooter behind the deadly rampage at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, is half black, just like President Obama and many Americans across the nation. Sadly, the media outlets CNN and LA Times worked to alter Chris Harper Mercer’s appearance, making his appear “white” or calling him a “white supremacist.”

“On the left is the selfie Christopher Mercer uploaded to his social media,” the Conservative Treehouse reports on the photo comparison below. “On the right is how CNN presented the same selfie in broadcast stories about him.  Why did CNN need to change the complexion (color) of their broadcast?”

CNN has rebuked the accusations, as updated on the Treehouse report, but are ignoring the anti-Bernie Sanders comments, “F*** white racist pigs like Bernie” and his support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Treehouse summary:

“The immediate on-line web history of Chris Harper-Mercer showed him to be a mixed-race, angry young man in general alignment with various radical racially aligned groups such as Black Lives Matter, F*** The Police and F*** Yo Flag – all of which carry a sentiment of favorability and ideological alignment with Islam which was similarly evident in the Ferguson protest movement….

However, in the course of several hours (one media cycle) – the media narrative is selling a profile of a loner, mentally disturbed individual without any mention of his previous writings (deleted/changed), behaviors (hidden) and social tendencies (ignored).”

It also noteworthy that his mother’s photo was never shown.

CNN correspondent, Pamela Brown, cited writings allegedly penned by Mercer where he “rambled about his hatred toward black men,” thus portraying him as a racist or possibly a white supremacist.

The father is Caucasian, Gary Evans said, while Mercer’s mother, Laurel Harper, is black.

Notice in the pic that his skin was not just white-washed, but his nose made smaller and lips made thinner.

The Los Angeles Times also portrayed Mercer as a white supremacist:

A federal law enforcement source familiar with the investigation said, though, that authorities had obtained some of Harper-Mercer’s writings, as well as a note he left behind, suggesting that he supported white-supremacist causes and opposed organized religion. (emphasis added, The Dispatch)

The poor victim card didn’t work either, since his family is well off.

Laurel was the second-oldest of four sisters and was raised in Torrance in what Evans described as a “very upper-middle-class” household. Evans is married to Mercer’s aunt, Laurel Harper’s sister Maribeth, wed back in 1990. Mercer’s mom was just starting to become a nurse.

“I know she went from career to career and then settled on nursing,” he said. “She was working full-time and taking [nursing] classes part-time.”

The New York Times reports Mercer was described by neighbors as a reclusive young man who was “fiercely protected” by his mother.

Mercer reportedly gave his writings to a survivor of the massacre, which revealed “hatred” toward black men and his struggles with the opposite sex.

“In the middle of the shooting rampage, the gunman handed his writings to a survivor to give to police according to sources. In those pages, the shooter rambled about his hatred toward black men and how he was frustrated about being a virgin unable to find a girlfriend,” the Brown report to Andersoon Cooper added.

Brown went on to discussed the anti-Christianity aspect of his crime, but went back to his hatred of what was described to be “all different types of people,” including black men.

“As a result, we’ve been asking people today, Anderson, if he left any trail behind indicating that he was anti-Christian or had a dislike for organized religion,” she said. “So far all we’ve been able to find is on a social media page that apparently belonged to him. He said he disliked organized religion but in the writings we talked about in the piece, apparently he gave no indication other than saying he associated with the dark side. Law enforcement officials I’ve been speaking with say this is someone that hated all different types of people. We talked about earlier – he hated black men. He described frustration with women. This is one of those situations where you can’t really apply logic to what is obviously a very illogical situation here, Anderson.”
