Fox News is unusually focused on the nationality of the officer who shot Justine Damond (he’s Somali-American)

In its hyperfocus on Noor’s nationality, Fox News served to validate the racism, xenophobia, and debunked associations between immigration and crime espoused by pro-Trump fake news purveyors, conspiracy theorists, white nationalists, and notorious Islamophobes alike. Noor’s background is only as relevant as it is in any officer-involved shooting, and if it’s being touted as more than that, we should be asking why.
