When will whites stop whites from committing MASS MURDERS

May 2016... A Drumbeat of Multiple Shootings, but America Isn’t Listening

Seeking deeper insight into the phenomenon, The New York Times identified and analyzed these 358 shootings with four or more casualties, drawing on two databases assembled from news reports and citizen contributors, and then verifying details with law enforcement agencies.

...
Over all, though, nearly three-fourths of victims and suspected assailants whose race could be identified were black. Some experts suggest that helps explain why the drumbeat of dead and wounded does not inspire more outrage.

...
Michael Nutter, a former Philadelphia mayor, who is black, said that society would not be so complacent if whites were dying from gun violence at the same rate as blacks.

“The general view is it’s one bad black guy who has shot another bad black guy,” he said. “And so, one less person to worry about.”



My question is why are we (especially those most boisterous when whites kill) complacent about our own people being shot? We get mad on the occasion that a cop or a white person shoots us - why are we complacent when we kill ourselves? Nutter seems to have some position to make some impact, but I guess he is waiting on society to become exercised.

The right is happy to use black on black violence which is confined to a few pockets of the US to distract from the fact that many of the recent mass shootings/domestic terrorism on us soil under Trump were committed by angry, predominantly white, males with right wing leanings, many of whom support Trump and/or his policies

...I fail to see the point the OP is trying to make.

OP is comparing apples (isolated incidents of gun violence. You'd have to experience the community to understand that all those incidents listed are quite different from events like LasVegas, el Paso and sandy hook) to oranges (public terrorism driven by a particular ideology).

He's not wrong in the definition of mass shooting but the cause, scale and impact are very different.

All of the above quoted hit the nail on the head, not much else to say. We know why this thread was created and what agenda is being pandered to...

Lmfao at the people in here pretending to care about the effects of "black on black crime"...

Is this even debatable? The legacies of slavery resulted in Jim Crow and a bunch of other **** that still exists today, I'm not sure how this would even be debatable...

Cognitive Dissonance. They believe their minds are superior...including the morality of the mind.

I’m sorry, but if someone goes on a random killing spree with mass casualties it’s almost always a white guy.

It doesn't fit the Democrat/Media/Progressive anti White, anti legal gun narrative.

It fits the agenda and distracts away from the right wing ideology of these deplorable and depraved individuals
