We saw how much coverage there was with the shooting in Gilroy and the media was sure quick and happy to announce the race of the shooter, some even seemed to be ecstatic to be able to point to a white person for the horrible crime. So, as usual, the media ignores the dozens of other mass shootings in the country, some with 3-4x the number of victims as that in Gilroy, but the media (besides local media) remains silent.

We also have to ask about the national statistics regarding deaths by gun violence where they rank gun violence as one of the leading causes of death in the US (other than medical or natural reasons) with about 40,000 and that would seem like a lot of deaths if the statistics weren't padded with suicides from firearms or death by police shootings (which is almost always a criminal threatening someone else with a gun, or suicide by cop). If these numbers were removed that number would drop by about 75% or more which puts the level of gun violence in a country of ~325 million, in a different light.

So why does the media and government decide not to include these shootings, which are perpetrated by blacks in about 90% of the cases, not included in mass shootings? This seems racist in many aspects - one for only highlighting white shooters and villainizing them and the other is ignoring the victims of the black shooters, which is largely black victims, so they ignore these victims while they cover the "REAL" mass shootings where the victims are often white.

There's also another aspect in these uncovered shootings and that is the weapon used usually isn't the big scary black gun or the AR15. The weapons used in these shootings are usually hand guns, small carbines or "hybrid" pistols.

So as the media continues to push the narrative that 90% of mass shootings are committed by white people when the exact opposite is true, with the shooters actually being blacks, be aware of the level of crime being hidden from the public while trying to make the majority population look like terrorists. The level of black violence in many of the US cities is at an epidemic level and it's impossible to be hidden, even though they try many different ways with their manipulated statistics.

Look at 9:45 in the video to get an idea why these shootings aren't looked at the same as the Gilroy shooting and you'll get a quote from NYC mayor De'Blasio.

Maureen Callahan from The New York Post appears to have some opinion that all mass shooters in modern society are angry young men, spurred on by pornography and first person shooter video games.

So, uh... Is there a clear link between pornography and video games with your mass shootings?

I'd just like to know how much of an influence Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo, Valve, etc... Have on mass shootings, also Pornhub, etc...

Anyone from these companies want to comment on the accuracy of Maureen Callahan's opinions?

Apparently the New York Post is cool with publishing her (Maureen Callahan) opinions that imply, Sony, Microsoft, all major computer OEM's that produce hardware for first person gaming (Apple, Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo, individual part manufacturers, AMD, Intel, etc...), gaming distributors and involved companies, major adult film distribution hubs, etc... Are somehow enabling mass shootings.
So, Microsoft, Sony, what are you guys doing about being accused of enabling mass shootings by opinion pieces on The New York Post?

Maureen Callahan from the New York Post is implying it, so I really want to know the opinion of the multiple billion dollar companies involved with the allegations outlined in her opinion piece. Unless she's implying there is some other major outlet for pornography or for first person shooter video games, that could be proving her opinion. Huh? How are these games being played? All these shooters using hardware or software from companies that don't have legal teams capable of pursuing equine excrement of this level?

Well that's what ya get when people would rather pacify a whole culture for something that happened over 200 years ago

(not in our life time)

Something that was the norm back then, happened all over the world. There own people sold them out. As everyone did back then

so people act so scarred to "offend" anyone just for saying the honest truth!

because you might be a "racist"!

Justice can not and will never be served this way


That's not real equality!

Hell now a day's,
if you're a white male your at the bottom of the pile.
Pretty much everyone tries to demonize you

It's white male = white devil
sad

This subject gets me boiling.

Like the kids in Chicago or Detroit or some other city don't rate the coverage. Yet I am supposed to get all distraught when someone from some upscale suburban location gets shot. I get upset when anyone dies senselessly. But the media assumes I will only care when it is a certain demographic. Or the shooter is a certain demographic.

The worst part is I do not see a solution on the horizon for those urban kids. The media is pushing agendas which will solve nothing.

Angry young men spurred on by porn and video games, huh...

Well it is a lot of young men, she got that part right. But angry? How would she know their level of anger at the time of the shooting?

Porn makes up most of the internet. Worldwide. If porn caused shootings, there would be no one left to talk about this.

And video games? Well the shooter in NZ did reference Spyro the Dragon. So I guess it is conclusive then. Mario Brothers caused WWII. Good grief...

I completely understand your outrage at this and I think this is what Trump feels as well when he was campaigning in 2016 when he said "what do you have to loose". Between this issue and drugs and general poverty (the rat, filth problem), I think these are the general issues Trump was talking about and addressing with his comment - which was totally flipped and taken out of context to say something he didn't mean at all. People who are honest see these issues and the devastation they bring.

I think there is a strong element of racism in this coverage of the white shooters vs the black ones - and also the victims of the shootings. Even when there is a shooting of a family party that had 50-100 people, or a club/bar with 200-300 people, and if 10-20 people get shot (maybe 2-5 die), that doesn't count or make the stat's as a mass shooting and often all people involved are black at least in the more recent ones I'm referencing. So what does it take to qualify for national coverage?

If there was a family BBQ with 20 jews and 3-4 got shot, you can guarantee that there would be national coverage and outrage about this - for many days/nights, while a BBQ with 50-100 blacks in the inner city where 16 people are shot, 3 killed, gets only very local coverage and for maybe 1-2 nights and MAYBE some brief updates as the investigation progresses.

So I'm wondering what you people think about this, if it is a slap in the face of the black victims to not cover the black shootings or are they trying to hide the amount and level of violence in these poor black communities?

I don't think either of these are directly responsible for these actions but if I had to pick one to be the main cause of these issues, and one that I would eliminate or reduce in society, it would be porn. I think porn creates a major disconnect and depersonalization within the watcher and this can lead to disassociation in parts of their lives. I also think it has a spiritual impact and hurts the "soul" in many ways and is especially impactful when the viewer decides to watch violent porn, fetish porn and homosexual porn (which I think most porn is in some way today).

As far as video games I don't think these are making people shoot others but I think playing these reduces personal interaction and the ability to deal with other people and it's cummulative effect (especially when played alot) is negative to personal growth.

Anybody reporting on the shooter's heritage?

he is Iranian / Italian, perhaps jumping on the "he is white" bandwagon is a bit quick.

Perhaps his mother being Iranian and in the film industry should tell you something, kind of like how Elliot Rodger's father was also in the film industry... in California.

Excellent thread. I think the mass shooting at the Brooklyn, NY block party 2 weekends ago was a Black guy. Something like 12 people were shot. It was widely covered for about 2 hours that day...and then the police said they were looking for an African American male. News coverage ground to a halt.

I must have missed the information regarding young white men across America murdering eachother in record numbers because I what colour their clothes are or if they live 5 blocks across town.

Anyone got that link they can share?

THIRTY-SIX MASS shootings in less than two weeks??

Where did you get that number? Do you have a link?

Where and when did these take place, and what makes an incident a "mass" shooting?

Also, your numbers about if they removed suicides by gun from the death statistics, death by gun would be down 75% or more?! Again- where did you get those numbers? Link, please?

Because basically you are saying that 75 percent of gun deaths are due to suicide, and I don't think that's correct. You sure threw around a lot of unsubstantiated stats and numbers in your OP.

The media is biased, people still can't seem to accept that truth.
They report what they want, how they want to and ignore what doesmt follow their narrative.

That video can't be posted enough! It will be key evidence when the anti-trust lawsuits against the MSM get underway.

Well that is what media outlets are reporting. If you recall, they did the same with Zimmerman in FL. The person could be an octaroon or maybe even 1/4 black and they would still call them white. It's an agenda to demonize the majority, especially those who support guns and are Trump supporters.

Thanks for the report. I don't have cable TV so I don't see what is on 24/7, I only see what they push on their sites and on their YT streams - which they didn't push this event at all it seemed besides a brief article where it was front page for maybe an hour. I'm sure had I been watching more closely it may have been more.

Yeah, there seems to be a lack of reporting on that, it seems like there is a blackout on that information, or maybe it's just "blackwashed" or all the people doing that are permanently dressed in blackface. Maybe once they are in jail for a while, we will see their true race and the media can get the story right.

The shootings - did you watch the video? I'm not tracking down all 36 shootings. They are covered in the video more or less. I If you don't want to beleive what's there, that's your choice. I've spent enough time checking his video's and still do randomly, but I'm not tracking all these down. Feel free to post what you find.

But, those thirty six shootings are normal, they are not a rare white person event. The guns were probably not legaly purchased in some of those incidents, they want to stop regular working people from buying guns, they want anyone who owns a gun to be considered a criminal. If you make everyone feel like criminals, it is easier to control society. The majority of people who feel they might be targeted by the police for an illegal action usually do not rock the boat.

It is absolutely racist, just like the progressive whites who say that voter ID requirements are racist because black people are to ignorant, shifty, poor, and technologically backwards to get proper identification.

These people are clearly operating on the assumption that it's normal or not out of the ordinaryfor black people to go around shooting one another up.

As a matter of fact, I'd say their failure to report on it means that they condone and implicitly encourage it by refusing to draw attention to it. They actually want black people to kill one another off.

They are racists; hateful, ugly, prejudiced racists.
