I am dubious that the alleged white supremacist killer was targeting Sikhs in particular, even though he lived close enough to the temple that he likely knew this was a Sikh temple and not another religion. More likely, he was targeting Asian-American in general or non-white people in general. The Sikhs just happened to be the closest targets for him.
I do applaud the media for taking this opportunity to educate Americans about Sikhs. Too often, American minority groups receive absolutely zero press coverage until a tragedy occurs.

Another terrorist attack today, this time in Joplin, Missouri: Web Link
Are these coordinated attacks by white supremacist groups?
