So the media is pointing the finger at "white nationalists" calling them terrorists and as we know they only cover shootings by white men and don't bother giving the time of day to the black shooters or black victims that account for ~90% of the shooters and at least that rate of vi
Here are pictures of this years mass shooters that Vice pointed out is majority "white nationalists" - and in the next breath said thee were over 250 shootings this year. That means they are using the statistics of black shooters (gang related very often) and outright lying about white nationalists narrative - which is creating violence against conservatives.
This isn't going to end well for the media. People are remembering who is saying what and there is going to be a bill for their recklessness and it's not going to be paid in platitudes and "im sorries"

Thanks for sharing that VERY informative FBI table of arrest statistics. It looks like Blacks commit 68% of U.S. murders, and not 90%, like the title of this thread states. Am I reading it correctly, Fred?
DC Sniper......So many forget that one.
Jurors were played a tape of the call, in which the caller demands that police tell the public the snipers were "caught like a duck in a noose."
The caller -- presumably the sniper himself -- was the first to throw out the puzzling phrase, which was then repeated by the Montgomery County police chief on Wednesday at a late-night news conference, apparently by way of confirmation.
''You asked us to say, 'We have caught the sniper like a duck in a noose','' the chief, Charles A. Moose, said into a battery of microphones. ''We understand that hearing us say this is important to you.''
A recorded voice said:
Don't say anything. Just listen. Dearest police, Call me God. Do not release to the press. Five red stars. You have our terms. They are non-negotiable. If you choose Option 1, you will hold a press conference stating to the media that you believe you have caught the sniper like a duck in a noose. Repeat every word exactly as you heard it. If you choose Option 2, be sure to remember we will not deviate. P.S.-Your children are not safe. Id.
. . . nothing -- and I repeat nothing -- demonstrates the . . . hand behind this shooting spree than the halting, clumsy manner in which Police Chief Moose delivered the final Mind Control message to the shooter that the time had arrived to give himself up.
Sniper John Allen Muhammad refused to utter any last words as he was executed, taking to the grave answers about why and how he plotted the killings . . .
True terrorism, but organised by who? And why?

I think that both sides should be honest. Yes, gang violence makes up most of mass shootings. However, gang violence and acts of terrorism are two different things, IMO. Speaking strictly on mass shootings in public places where the shooters goal is to harm as many people as possible (IMO, an act of terrorism). Young white males are mainly responsible. Churches, schools, movie theaters, concerts, department stores...mainly young white male shooters.
Should that reflect on all white males? No. The media is at fault for that.

Most mass-shooters are White males.
Most non-mass-shooters are Black and Brown males.
Are those two conclusions correct?
Don't forget White males comprise the bulk of US serial killers as well but thats off topic
Its a good point as I have alluded to. Neither side seems willing to accept stats that do not support their view. Ask doesn't trust the FBI, what about the RAND corporation? The NRA? etc etc.
If you do not trust government statistics ie the FBI, then the conclusion that non mass shooters are Black and Hispanics would not hold as well no?
