Comments like yours are just as damaging as sweeping generalizations of all black folks based on the criminal element that is engaged in weekly shootings.

The article defines mass shooting as "whenever there are three or more victims of gunfire". So gang related shootouts easily qualify.

Define it as ten or more victims or ten or more deaths as you probably get a different answer.

Gang-bangers cutting down rival gang-bangers in a turf war. Yes, it does differ from a psycho killing innocent people in a grocery store.

Blacks commit more gun murders than whites every year by far. Blacks are 13.8% of the population and commit over 50% of murders.

Why? I think they’re just as psycho, and uncaring of who gets caught in the crossfire. We should give as much attention to these crimes as the other ones because those lives matter too.

Ignored by the left. Why? It doesn’t fit the narrative. Blk crime is given a pass from the left because it’s their reliable voting block. That’s just the truth, whether you like it or not.

It's interesting to me that some folks are so set on blaming one segment of the population with all of the shootings. We're actually debating whether blacks or whites are more apt to shoot people. You can play around with the numbers all you want. But I think we need t understand that there are different types of mass shootings. There is the random shootings like in a church, night club or a Walmart. There are the gang related shootings where people are being targeted by gangs. There are school shootings and then there are workplace shootings. There's no doubt other ways to differentiate that I can't think of. Each type of shooting is different. For instance, there's not a problem that I am aware of where white people are involved in many gang-related shootings. One thing they all have in common is that there is a gun violence problem in America. I'm not sure how arguing about whether whites or blacks are more responsible is helping us solve the issue

Good chance that it would cause people to start declaring an entire group of people insane. But then again, insanity is an intellectual thing, and as we all have been well-informed, the minority and criminals from that group have been in the past as well as presently regarded as poor academic performers. For the sake of politics and science, they cannot be treated the same as white mass shooters who are considered well-educated and often a savior to their followers.

White men may be the face of domestic terrorism in the always lying media but black men continue to committ 10 times more murders per capita than do white men....one is media fed false impression and the other is reality and truth which is therefore anti PC.
