I could see how they felt it was an attack on a certain race, but it just happened to be Latino night at the club. It was clearly on attack on the LGBT community. The shooter even spared the life of African Americans since the shooter thought, they've been through enough.
But yeah someone always pulls the race card sadly

Was this before or after the African Americans he shot? :awk: I mean I saw the survivor say this but I'm guessing she's not had a chance to see the list of people who died. He didn't spare shit.

I haven't commented much on this because I am really at a loss of words. The same thing happened in Mexico a couple of months ago but it was not publicized and I read about much time after it happened so it didn't hit that hard.

Sadly, this has made me realize how much intolerance and ignorance the world still has towards the LGTB community, reading comments on the news feeds from several outlets made even angrier and sadder.

I thought we were in a better place, but unfortunately, society seems to be moving backwards instead... Heartbreaking, really.

There were black LGBT people that WERE killed along with Afro Latinos.

This was an attack on LGBT people of color. The fact that you can't get that through your head is not surprising at all.

because it was Latin night , I mean statistically speaking there would be more latins who were killed because of that. But sure it was a race thing in the life of Davi and co

He could've chosen any other night mija. He chose a night that was a minority group of a minority group. Do not erase their beings as LGBT Latinx and Black minorities as so much of the white gays are already doing. Remember them as who they are. :arrow:

This should also note, not only does this affect the LGBT community but that Latinx one as well. Althoughit's not addressed in the media, doesn't mean it should take a blind eye.

Unrelated to this, but on point for #PrayForOrlando: a 2 year old little girl may have just been eaten by an alligator in Lake Buena Vista (Disney area, in Orlando). 

Fucking hell, Orlando.

Florida is such a mess. Sis, you should move to Cali tbh. I feel like you'd thrive in LA. Or NY, but the weather can't compare to Cali & Florida.

Just terrible. This is a story that seems like it's going to take more investigation than other cases like this. The things he did and said before the massacre and what he did and said during the massacre all conflict.

He said he wanted to spare the lives of the black people but he murdered some. He went on a rampage though, so he probably was just shooting as many people as he could. We don't really know if he was actually targeting them, but we do know he targeted the latino gay community. And why target the gay community and the latino community when they are both minority groups? Minorities aren't the ones making up the majority of the house and making these decisions to attack other countries.

It did not just so happen to be Latino night. This man supposedly frequented the bar for several years up to twice a month at one point. He messaged guys on Grindr this year wondering what the hotspots were although it seemed like he already knew. And I'm sure the Latino night was publicized all over Pulse's website as it was the bar's biggest night of the week and happened every Saturday night.

It's very easy to obtain information online and this was a man that did his research and learned different skills very quickly to actually act out this planned attack. He rented a car and drove two hours away to do this. It was well organized.

A friend called me last night and said someone at his job was reported to HR for writing on FB " I guess someone had enough to extinguish the filth. I applaud the young man who gunned these dogs down".. Just no words. For every step I had thought we'd taken I feel like we've been pushed back a million more by this.

Ugh...that must feel sickening ...I feel for you brother ..don't be scared though ...I know it's hard, as I lay here with anger and sorrow and disgust ... But be done with fear.. I'm working on letting my sorrow go... I'm gonna start back up working with the community..a volunteer .. I talked to these lgbt youth at the LA vigil ...they were crying and looking so defeated and hurt ...I had to tell them they were beautiful and here on this earth for a reason and not to give into darkness... Their heart break was palpable... Anyway PB.. Be vigilant and brave and you already have the courage

I'm wondering if he can even be dismissed for this, though. Any human resources girls on here? It's a truly fucked up view of things but I guess that's his right huh? :noway:

He probably said that he was doing it for "his country" or whatever during the shooting cause he didn't want people to think he was a closet self hated jealous homophobic gay.

yesterday i was sitting in my kitchen and it was raining.. and then BOOM. i heard like the craziest, loudest thunder ever. it sounded like an explosion, so weird. i got goosebumps all over the body and froze for a second. and after that i heard so many sirens. well, it was raining a lot so basements got flooded and the fire department had a lot of work to do so.... 
i live in hamburg, it's one of the biggest cities in germany and i have to admit, i get easily scared at the moment...
