Exactly. I don't know The Advocate would describe him as typical, though he was male and he did have a history of mental issues.

I was thinking shooters of many, not that they necessary achieved a kill.




There plan wasn't to shoot many, it was to kill a specific target, and the presence of a crowd was irrelevant. Simply more collateral damag in the hood.

There was a shooting at a birthday party last year, the perps aiming for a relative at the birthday party wounded several and killed the birthday girl and a person driving by in a car, not a mass murder situation, simply disregard for human life and poor marksmanship.

Most mass shooters of minorities are done by their own and usually not covered heavily by the media due to it being culturally accepted.



And you find out about them ... how?

I read the column. It made no big deal one way or the other regarding race other than saying many were white. The shooter fit the profile of being male and in his thirties. And a history of mental illness.

The column was benign and a brief discussion of the incident.

The Poli Board sometimes reminds me of the OT.


I didn't know the race of Aaron Alexis before now, and from the Advocate op-ed, I assumed he was white.

Nope.

There is absolutely nowhere on earth that killing your own is culturally accepted. Anywhere. At all.

If you are killing someone, they are either not seen as "your own", or no longer "your own", or it is not culturally accepted. Nowhere does killing your own, and cultural acceptance thereof, exist.

Probably more in the realm of "serial killers" rather than mass murderers, but the DC snipers were black.

Regardless, I rather doubt that when you control for other variables, that race has much to do with who will commit a mass murder.

More in response to CT's comments: I really do think you need to look at most of the multiple shootings/murders "in the hood" in a different way. The point of most mass murderers is to kill indiscriminately, even if the victims are entirely unknowwn. The multiple shootings/killings in the hood are usually focused as to the target and if others die, they just don't care. Different mindset.

What does "your own" mean?

That is a great explanation, hard to argue with that logic.

Since when does the race of someone who commits murder matter.....

I think that's the reason they were trying to make the weapon of choice an AR15, since they couldn't harp on the fact that he was white

Only because Sunni and Shiite Muslims do not consider each other as their own. They routinely kill one another and tolerate the sectarian violence. I would think if they were not culturally accepting the killings the killers would be identified and punished.

Sure Black kids are unlikely to be filled with angst in high school as they aren't that committe4d to the process and they are generally dropped out before they become extremely violent.

Blacks do there share of workplace killings, but they also don't participate in the work force at a very high level.

It also takes some thought to plan a mass murder and lacks the spontaneity blacks seem to enjoy.

I don't think I've ever known anyone who habitually uses skin color to make broad generalizations as often as you do.

What in my quoted statement do you disagree with?

If more blacks were in high school do you not think there would be a possibility of even more black violence in HS?

If more blacks were in the work force do you not think there would be a possibility of even more black violence in the work place?


Avoid or reduce the stress of the high school and the work place and you have less of this shite going on. No better avoidance than a lack of participation.

Yeah, this one really doesn't fit. You missed the DC Shooters and the rogue cop in LA though. Also a lot of white serial killers (BTK, possible Anthrax, etc). Cunanan was a half white - half Filipino male prostitute, so I guess he was in a class all by himself.

Obviously a lot of unsolved serial killers out there that we may be missing because we have the wrong profile.

That's fair. We can swap 'em out.

Again, I'm not claiming to be scientific here, it was only a quick snapshot from my memory.

Also, these are all U.S. based. I'm sure that when you look world wide you will find mass shooter/killers in every corner of the earth, and of all colors and creeds.

The guy that shot the people on the NYC commuter train was black. The ft hood guy was white/Arab. There was a guy in the Bay Area at maybe a cement plant was black.
