@OfficerBlue Hey, if I'm wrong, I'm wrong. Good to see the writers responding though!

@OfficerBlue Wait, so I'm only partially wrong, right? I did say lonely young white guy, and this is a lonely old white guy?

He did hit 3 women.

@Hi_estComnDenomn you're wrong more often than not. Hey, but at least you're consistent.

@LEO0301 Nah, I'm definitely more right. Even here, it looks like i got a detail wrong but mostly nailed it.

Also, stop hating that this is a typical white guy crime in America. If it's not a white guy, it's an anomaly.

@Hi_estComnDenomn So running people over in a car is now a white person crime? Please provide your source for that comment. I would love to see statistical information that backs your contention. Now, when we're talking murder, I'm pretty sure that black men win the grand prize for that one. Just look at the most recent FBI homicide stats if you really want the truth and not some made up BS.

@LEO0301 No, not intentional vehicle homicides. But it's definitely a white profile crime to take out personal aggression on innocent people. It's hard for you to deny that.

@Hi_estComnDenomn Please, put down the joint and do a google search on homicides in America. I think you'll find that black men, who represent about 7% of this county's population, commit a majority of the murders.

@LEO0301 Thats great, and whites are disproportionately killing themselves with drugs, but both of those factors are beside my point you're trying to dodge. I'll reiterate since you forgot, feel free to take another crack at it:

Mowing people down in America is a white profile crime.

White people killing themselves and mowing people down, black people killing each other in record numbers.....job security folks.

Record numbers? Check what the leading cause of non disease death in America is, and you'll see exactly who is breaking records.

And this is relevant why? If your point is that lonely guys (race aside) who are rejected by women tend to lash out and injure/kill innocents then sure that makes sense. Even if it's statistically proven that the majority of lonely and rejected men who kill are white guys, ok, fine. But again, what's the point?

Hi_estComnDenomn
Hi_estComnDenomn

@Mrs10 The point specifically for you is that these kinds of comments happen all over this site, but you don't get all bent out of shape unless it's about white people.

Bend yourself back into shape, please.

@LEO0301 😂 did you read the article before posting it? It says mass shootings are overwhelmingly white.

LEO0301
LEO0301

@Hi_estComnDenomn All the mass shootings involving your race were committed by black males. They only represent approximately 6 or 7% of this country's population. When you take that into account, statistically the percentage of mass shootings are about the same for each race. However, when you look at the FBI data available to anyone who is interested in doing the research you'll find that black males kill more people than any other race. It's hard to deny the facts -

@LEO0301 Your picture and your comment don't match. Are you talking about murders or mass murders? I could have sworn we were talking about the latter.

Also, you say mass shootings are the same per race. No they're not, according to the numbers you provide. Would you like me to show my math, or can you handle that yourself? Also, can you find a chart that shows body count per incident?

Hi_estComnDenomn

@louisecompanion Yeah, Snoop hasn't been a gangster rapper in quite a while. He hosts a cooking show with Martha Stewart and coaches youth league football. What year are you getting your news from?

FYI, he released a chart topping gospel album earlier this year.

Not bent at all! I even AGREE with you on the facts involved. I just really didn't see the point in bringing it up. I'll also say that I don't like it when race is brought into ANY conversation as an aside. If it's not needed we should leave it be. It's the only way we will ever get past racial barriers.

@Mrs10 That is a great point, and i wished the world worked like that.

H_C Dumbass you and people like you don't work like that however. . Let's do the math anyway since you seem to like those numbers. In 2000 whites compromised 75% of the population and in 2010 63% of the population averaging 69% of the population. During that time frame they committed 56 mass shootings. In 2000 and 2010 blacks compromised 12% of the population and committed 16 mass shootings. If you really want to get crappy let's go with just the 2010 data for whites. 63% of the population, 53 mass shootings. The math is real easy. Statistically speaking, blacks are more likely to commit a mass shooting.

@Hi_estComnDenomn so, are you saying that black people are not killing each other in record numbers as I stated?

The end of the article you cite states “The 2013 study above showed 61 percent of Americans felt the easy access to firearms was to blame by either a 'great deal' or a 'fair amount'. “ Funny thing though is access to guns during that time frame have become more restrictive.

@Thinblueline he is just implying it doesn't matter. Either that or he doesn't like you adding other facts.
