Another act of terrorism in London. Don’t let anyone call it otherwise. He is white and he is a terrorist. #FinsburyPark

he wont be labelled as a murderer or a terrorist, maybe a white man who suffers from a mental illness #FinsburyPark

Can we refer to it as a terror attack or does that only apply when its a “Muslim” behind the attacks 🤔 #FinsburyPark
