The unusual thing about this shooting is that though names and victims haven’t been announced, the police and media have announced the race of shooter and victims.
For example, ABC News has
A man wielding a shotgun allegedly killed three of his neighbors after setting fire early Sunday to multiple units at a Houston rental complex, including one he was recently evicted from, apparently to lure the victims into an ambush, police said.
The suspect, described as a Black man in his 40s, was shot to death outside the burning residences by a police officer who arrived at the scene as Houston firefighters came under fire and were forced to retreat, Houston Police Chief Troy Finner said at a news conference on Sunday.
”This suspect, unfortunately, and very sadly, very evilly, set fire to several residences, laid (in) wait for those residents to come out and fired upon them,” Finner said...
Finner said two white men, both in their 60s, were fatally shot and perished at the scene. A third gunshot victim he described as a Black male in his 40s was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
He said a man in his 40s or 50 was shot in the arm and another survivor was injured running away from the scene.
The landlord of the multi-unit rental complex where the fiery ambush occurred told ABC station KTRK in Houston that the suspect had lived in the complex since 2013, but did not pay rent. The landlord, who asked that his name not be published, confirmed the suspect was evicted and had turned in his keys on Saturday.
The suspect was shot to death by a police officer, officials said.

And here’s a guy who thinks this is a problem that can be solved by gun control.

That’s a guy who has ”GUNS HAVE NO PLACE IN CIVILIZED SOCIETIES!” on his profile. I assume, by the way, he doesn’t even know it’s a black-on-white crime.
Our definition of the “Disgruntled Minority Massacre” is that a black—or other minority—employee or co-worker reacts with crazed violence to normal workplace actions like being fired or disciplined.
Eviction is a variant of that. Blacks are encouraged to believe that any action taken against them by authority figures must be motivated by racism, and that means that violence is justified.
