Was the Wisconsin Shooter a White Supremacist?

As Half Sigma notes, "If the [Wisconsin] shooter had been a Muslim…then the MSM would be cautioning us not to jump to any conclusions and that it was probably just a case of random violence." Now that he's been identified as a White male, the media and police feel comfortable jumping to conclusions:

OFFICIALS BELIEVE WISCONSIN SHOOTER WAS 40-YEAR-OLD WHITE SUPREMACIST OR SKINHEAD

Apparently, he has the tattoos to prove it.

The idea that the shooter was motivated by some kind of racialism strikes me as strange proposition. One would think that someone with White-Supremacist tattoos living in the Milwaukee area who wanted to engage in pre-meditated racial violence would focus on Blacks, who make up 40 percent of the urban population. Moreover, the site of the crime is Oak Creek, a 90-percent White suburb where racial strife would seem to be completely absent.
