A month after a white supremacist allegedly murdered nine black church-goers in Charleston, South Carolina, the Justice Department has declined to characterize the shooting as an act of terrorism. And many are asking why?
After the Charleston shootings, gun control remains the "gigantic elephant in the room," says journalist Gary Younge. FBI data show that African Americans are targeted 16 times more often than whites for hate crimes.
