Anyone who tries to paint all whites by the actions of a 21-year-old white guy is just as guilty as people who try to paint all blacks by the actions of a black 21-year-old gang member.

(Duh.)

Don't fall for their agenda and always be ready to cite stats. The Left will never touch the topics like the daily mass shootings in Chicago and Baltimore. Let's just take Chicago as an example of what the media won't touch:

Murders between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 by year:

2018: 561
2017: 660
2016: 777

Shooting victims between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 by year:

2018: 2,948
2017: 3,463
2016: 4,351
Lookie here. Another RWNJ trying to make everything about race, so that he can later claim that the left is framing everything in racial terms..... You guys have gotten so good at this that you don't even realize you do it anymore.


The fact is that the guy was a self-admitted white nationalist, who it appears traveled out of his way to kill more Hispanics. The only agenda here is the OP trying to create a straw-man naritive about the left that JUST ISN'T SO. The guy was a domestic terrorist. Why are you defending him?

And Chicago has it's own problems, which are clearly reported regularly. They need to be addressed as well, but they don't negate the problem of having a racist POTUS who stirs up white nationalist sentiment, and legitimizes it, giving cover to people like you for posting spew like this^.

Wait. Is it white nationalism OR white supremacist? Are you people trying to blurr the difference? Do you even know?

Sure, the difference is: white nationalists want a country of only white people and white supremacists think white people are genetically superior. Both despicable views, and both deserving of the scorn and derision directed their way. Both also tend to occupy the same headspace as well.

White Nationalist being the in vouge term for white supremacists to call themselves since "white supremacist" has more of a stigma at this point. It isn't fooling anyone though.

Why would you want to defend either one unless you subconsciously identify as one of the other?

Oh please . I was watching CNN when this started being reported, and they couldn’t resist identifying the shooter as a “white male” even before the guy’s name was released. They never would have done that if the shooter was black, Hispanic, or middle eastern.

Apparently you were wrong.

Poor thing.....

There is a sharp rise in right-wing terror, like the El Paso shooter, but it says nothing about white people in general. YOU connected it to white people.

Free pass from the right since black on black gang violence is still a reality in Chicago.

Why was the right so quick to call out "Radical islamic terrorism" over the years but won't do the same now with all the "domestic white supremacist right wing terrorism" now happening under Trump?

Identity politics only works as one way street I guess

You left out the other part of the equation; young males. The only exception would be the old guy in the Vegas shootings but still male.

Just like Trump would have been all over Twitter if it was a Muslim, illegal etc, but barely a mention now from him or the right.

In fact, he couldn't wait even fifteen minutes to change the subject... Sad!

Funny how the left loves to point out white racism. And the ones that are doing the pointing are left wing elitist whites too!
