FBI Director James Comey determined that the mass murder of nine black people in their place of worship, including a Democratic state Senator who was working to get police to use body cameras after the shooting of an unarmed Walter Scott, is not terrorism.
Comey explained his thinking that alleged shooter Dylann Roof is not a domestic terrorist because he had no political motive:

On Friday, Department of Justice spokeswoman Emily Pierce said the DOJ was investigating the massacre as both a hate crime and an act of terrorism,
Racially motivated to marginalize minorities.
