#CharlestonShooting: Social Media Reacts
The hateful murder of nine innocent Black churchgoers on Wednesday sparked shock and outrage on social media.
As authorities hunt for Dylann Storm Roof, 21, the lone white gunman suspected of murdering the members as they held Bible study, people are taking to Twitter and other social media platforms to talk about the ordeal.
This hurts. #CharlestonShooting

My white “friends” on Facebook have nothing to say about the #CharlestonShooting , but if we was somewhere rioting they wouldn’t shut up.
