It seems that YOU "are self-centered and the worst is that YOU don't know".

Your first reaction wasn't to express regret or sadness for grieving families

not even the slightest mention of victims or suffering...

but rather to take issue with a report about the shooter being an Asian

who came to the U.S. through Shang-hai.

YOU then rush to "play the race card" and blame the families

for creating a cold-blooded outsider.....

without waiting to hear reports from his family in Korea that he was

troubled before ever leaving for the U.S.

so, "take YOUR responsibility and be moral on it".

HINT....for someone so preoccupied with what the world thinks of your

country/culture.....it's not too late to edit your first post and show a bit of

humanity....

or.... are we to learn from YOUR inhumanity exactly what China/Chinese

culture is like?

I must say is I feel regret to the dead people, but except feeling sad and regretted. The main important thing is find out the main reason of incident, so that we can avoid it happens again. I felt angry about the wrong report, and I wanted to express my feeling here. And my point is that new report should take responsibility and be moral on true report. However, I didnít miss the main focus on the incidentís reason. If I let you shifted to the race topic, itís my fault.

Also, I donít want you have any misunderstanding, my feeling express can not represent all Chinese, I am still not popular enough. By the way, if you talked about inhumanity, some Americans thought that the incident caused not by the fault of gun control, instead itís because gun were forbidden in campus area. If the suffering people had gun in their hand, they could shoot back to the killer and stopped him. waht is the humanity stand for?
