More brilliant insight coming from NPR.

Daisy Hernandez, former editor of ColorLines magazine, is relieved that Jared Loughner is a "gringo" or white man rather than a "brown" man after the shootings over the weekend.

From NPR:

I wasn't the only person on Saturday who rushed to her Android when news came of the Tucson shooting.

What I wanted to know was the killer's surname.

My eyes scanned the mobile papers. I held my breath. Finally, I saw it: Jared Loughner. Not a Ramirez, Gonzalez or Garcia. It's safe to say there was a collective sigh of brown relief when the Tucson killer turned out to be a gringo.

I admit sadly that it was only after I saw the shooter's gringo surname that I was able to go on and read the rest of the news about those who lost their lives on Saturday and those who, like Rep. Giffords, were severely wounded

Which side is bringing up the race issue again?
