The United States (Jeff Poor-The Daily Caller) – Throughout the day on Saturday, CNN teased an upcoming segment pertaining to the recent Newtown, Conn. tragedy where the premise was “Should white men be profiled?” The discussion, which aired on “CNN Newsroom” hosted by Don Lemon, was based on a Salon.com column by David Sirota published just days after the Newtown shooting.  Sirota explained his reasoning and suggested there was a double standard.

“I think we should ask the question, ‘Why is America, 30 percent white guys and 70 percent of the shootings in the last many decades have been at the hands of white guys?’” Sirota said. “I’m not saying we should racially profile white guys, but I do think it’s interesting to note that had the shooters, had 70 percent of mass shooters been, let’s say, Arabs or African-American men, I think the conversation right now would be a very different conversation where we’d be talking — we’d be having a much less nuanced, a much uglier conversation.”
