San Bernardino perpetrators: Asian and Middle Eastern.

San Francisco UPS perpetrator: Asian.

Fort Lauderdale Airport perpetrator: Hispanic.


And so on...

Though plenty of mass shooting perpetrators are white, your perception is still off the mark.

Put up the list of white perpetrators as well. Maybe even include women and see how that list compares.

I've already made my point. You seem to want to make a different point. If so, go for it.

"Roger Lane found that certain white ethnic groups in nineteenth-century
Philadelphia had rates of interpersonal violence that closely resembled
those of blacks living in the city." &c.

The paper goes on to discuss cultural, economic, social oppression, and other factors as a potential differentiating cause, then notes that more study is needed. The jury is still out on this, but clearly poverty is a factor.
I think that's pretty plausible.

So would it be fair to say that murder and rape are an 'African Sickness'?

Or would we maybe show a little more respect than that... since it's kinda ****ty to single out a demographic and imply that they as a demographic are 'sick'?

Here in a graph, you can see that most mass shooters are white.

And, I saw this morning a headline that indicated Gilroy shooter frequented white supremacy websites.

The graph indicates blacks are over represented as offenders. It shows blacks, who are 13% of the population committing 19% of the mass shootings. Whites, who are 62% of the population, commit 62% of the mass shootings.

There's no such thing as white supremacy anymore. One tenet of white supremacy is the domination of another race. This hasn't happened since slavery in the US or European colonization of Africa or British colonization of India. Even the most hard core racists in the US do not espouse controlling or dominating another race. The term "white supremacy" should be retired.

Now, break each of those down into percentages, and compare to each group as a percentage of population.
Lemme know what you find.

Don't worry, I can do the math for you if you don't know how.

Is violent crime in general a White European Sickness? Europeans (White ones) are responsble for the highest death tolls in human history; the Holocaust, the Eastern Front of WW2 (where white rape and genocide occured on a daily basis, MILLIONS DEAD). What about all the white-on-white murder via Stalin and Lennin? What about the Oklahoma City Bombing and the Las Vegas shooting?

C'mon you guys have killed WAAAYYY more people than any other racial group in human history. NO current FBI statistic could EVER match centuries of rape, murder and genocide. You guys are REALLY good at it! Pat yourselves on the back ;-)

*And I didn't even mention what you all did to the Native Americans or those "VIOLENT" blacks lol (maybe you think they got what they deserved)*

Has anyone noticed that perpetrators of mass shootings in the U.S. are almost exclusively white (Anglo/Caucasian) men? Any thoughts on why this is?
Even though I defended people of colour against the rebuttals to your original post, I strongly disagree with what you posted here^^. You are doing the SAME thing you probably complain about from white ppl. You are blaming an entire group of ppl because the actions of a few. That sir, IS racism. Your op is absolute BS

Different types of people, different types and levels of crime. But nobody ever wants to hear the truth on that one.
