(The Root) — Twitter has been on fire with discussions about the shooting at the Washington, D.C., Navy yard since news of the incident broke yesterday.

Conversations about tragic incidents are never easy. Many of the discussions center on the feelings of grief, hopelessness and concern that spring up with any random act of violence, and yesterday's conversations followed suit. But upon hearing that the shooter, Aaron Alexis, is black, some took the opportunity to tweet really, really crazy things about race and how it plays into this tragedy.

Check out 10 of the most ridiculous tweets below.

If the Navy Yard shooter was White the media wld be speculating abt links to White power groups ect.. so is this gunman a Black supremacist?
