We are shocked and appalled by the #pulse nightclub shooting in Florida this morning. Ignorance strikes again.— Atlas Genius (@atlasgenius) June 12, 2016
No. My heart is broken for the victims and friends and families of the people killed and wounded at #pulse nightclub. It's horrifying and infuriating and disgusting and heartbreaking. To kill and harm innocent people is an affront to God. Fuck you, terrorists. Fuck you, homophobes. Fuck you, intolerant bigots. Today is a day of heartbreak and shame.

It's not just gun control. It's the re-written history of The South, of Native Americans, of post war world building. Our narrative is false— Matthew E. White (@amattwhitejoint) June 12, 2016
