Over Buffalo mass shooting, U.S. urged to take hard look at itself: report

By Xia Lin

NEW YORK, May 19 (Xinhua) -- The number of hate crimes in the United States, as exemplified by the mass shooting on Saturday in Buffalo, New York, is exploding, and the once-smoldering embers of racial bias are being fanned into an inferno by multiple sources, reported The Boston Globe in an Opinion article on Tuesday.

Hate is being broadcast by far-right social media outlets and radical cable news hosts to further their own ideological and financial agenda, while "the 'great replacement theory,' which promulgates the lie that people of color and immigrants are being used as a political tool to take economic, cultural, and political power away from white people, has even gone mainstream in the Republican Party," said the report.
