What is up with people

Just been berated for my choice of words which is clearly being taken way out of context by people who hardly know me. I probably shouldn't be so sensitive but eh, we can all be self indulgent sometimes right?

So what did I say? I said that the Charlston shootings were "a senseless act by a madman". I have since been told that I am insulting people with mental illness. The problem is that I would never refer to someone with a mental illness as a madman. To me a madman is someone who is just plain wrong with fucked up motivations who does fucked up things whatever they may be.

As someone with mental health issues and someone who although clearly not black, has often been on the recieving end of racism... I'd love it if people could maybe see my comment for what it is, and not make me out to be an asshole.
