Jake England, one of two men who took part in a shooting spree earlier this month, insists that he isn't racist. In fact — wait for it — some of his best friends are black.
England's lawyer Clark Brewster played a tape of an interview his team conducted with England, during which the accused says, "I always got along with everybody. It didn't matter what color he was."
Of course, that doesn't explain the Facebook post that led many to conclude the Tulsa shootings were "revenge" against the black community England blamed for the deaths of his father and girlfriend. On Facebook, England described his father's death as being "at the hands of a @!$%#ing @!$%#." But England says he was just upset: it's not like a racial slur has anything to do with racism, right?
