After the Virginia shooting, the media was quick to humanize the shooter, who was a white, male, Bernie supporter. Obviously, this isn’t how it always goes down.

So, when is violence just about the action, and when is it about the identity of the perpetrator? And how much should identity and politics matter when it comes to violence?

Host Julio Ricardo Varela leads a discussion on this and more with Farah Stockman, reporter for the New York Times and Marcela Garcia, editorial writer for the Boston Globe and  co-host of the new weekend edition of WGBH’s Boston Public Radio.
