I'm actually happy that you pointed out the attacks in Kenya. UT as for Huckabee we both ow he's a jackass but for him to say that he can't imagine a American Terrorist, well what about Timothy McVeigh,and The Unabomber,and yes Dylan Rooth in South Carolina. Black folks were being Terrorized in the Middle Passage on the way here, what does Huckabee think the KKK was , just a few good old boys just Hoshino around.
As for the BLM group I think their problem is tactic not issue, because the issue is real, but the tactic needs work.
But to answer your question about fact or feelings, I think it's mostly both, if that's possible, of course for a lot of folks the fact ts actually get in the way.
