Manchester vs. Bottrop

So why is one terrorism related and the other is racism?

I think you’ll find Bottrop was a lone wolf with mental health issues. That’s the way the narrative usually goes.

In fact the Manchester attacker has been sectioned under the Mental Health Act.

A terrorist has ulterior aims, for instance to get political change. Usually that meanst targeting the population group(s) that has the (most) power, perhaps think of it as attacking the power structures and those who represent it. Usually that means they don't target minorities, though exceptions probably exist, think South Africa under the apartheid regime.

Re: Manchester vs. Bottrop

Well they both sound like people with mental health issues, not directed by any third party. They are both racist terrorists.
