Med-School Professor Tweets That Fox News And ‘American Sniper’ To Blame For Dylann Roof And Charleston Shooting
A professor of medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine has taken to Twitter to place blame on mainstream media — such as Fox News and the 2014 film “American Sniper” — for breeding the type of racist thinking that led Dylann Roof to carry out the shooting at a Charleston, S.C. church last month.
Dr. Faheem Younus is a medical professor at the University of Maryland, School of Medicine who doubles as a blogger for Muslim-American identity and the Middle East with the online username: “Muslimerican.” Additionally, Younus serves on the board for the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the leading Islamic organization that rejects all forms of terrorism.
Younus tweeted earlier in June that the racist ideology advocated by Charleston shooter Dylann Roof was specifically “promoted” by Fox News.
