“Stranger-on-stranger mass shootings are not the fault of angry white men”

Of course the exact opposite is true: After every mass shooting by a WHITE MAN, the US puts on a hair shirt and bans flags or foods or words. (…) The REALITY, of course, is that virtually everyone complaining about “mass shootings” is doing so in bad faith.

Secondly, the contexts of mass shootings are never given. Nearly all are domestic violence or criminals fighting each other. Stranger-on-stranger, mass-casualty incidents like the one in Las Vegas have nothing to do with race or anger. There’s nothing about WHITENESS that makes people more or less dangerous than anybody else. Stranger-on-stranger mass shootings are committed by the mentally ill.

@NaazModan forgets that people of color hold the world record when it comes to mass murder in the United States.

September 11, 2001, saw the mass murder of 3000.

Pulse Nightclub, June 12, 2016. A man of color killed 49.

Virginia Tech, April 16, 2007. A man of color kills 32.

San Bernardino, December 2, 2015. A man and a woman of color kill 14.

Fort Hood, November 5, 2009. A man of color kills 13.

Binghamton, New York, April 3, 2009. A man of color kills 13.

Seattle, February 18, 1983. Three men of color kill 13.

Washington Navy Shipyard, September 16, 2013. A man of color kills 12.

(…)

Not much at all. Same number of fatalities in 2014 as in 1982. As always, the press is there to tell us that everything sucks. That’s a lie. But that’s how @NaazModan gets attention. By lying.

As we try to find solutions, the last thing we need is racist slurs. Remember what we were told on September 12, 2001? “We can’t let the actions of a tiny minority define how we perceive the entire group.” If it’s good enough for Muslims, it’s good enough for white men.
