Ohio Democratic rep. blames white supremacy for Dallas Korean hair salon shooting

  • Democratic Rep. Joyce Beatty (D, OH-3) spoke at the Capitol on Thursday, stating that “three people in a Korean-owned hair salon” were gunned by another “white supremacy replacement theorist,” when the suspect is Black.
  • Beatty, who is also chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), mistakenly blamed white supremacy for the shooting at the Dallas Korean hair salon that left three women of Korean descent wounded.
  • What Beatty did get right, however, was that the shooting was most likely a hate crime, based on police reports.
  • Dallas Police Chief Eddie Garcia announced on Tuesday the arrest of 36-year-old Jeremy Theron Smith, who is believed to have mental health issues.
  • According to Garcia, the gunman suffered from “panic attacks and delusions when he was around anyone of Asian descent.”
