    Not sure about schools but right wing terrorists account for a fair share of people

    That's not true anymore, since gang shootings are counted as mass shootings.

    Gang killings that you're referring to rarely have multiple deaths. Mass shooting would require over 10 imo. How many gang shootouts involve more than one or two? Not many in the last decade. Trying to put gang killings in with random shooters is missing the point entirely. We may as well call Iraq or Afghanistan as mass shootings. Were now in silly land but iget why you're trying to conflate, trying to say these school shooters are gangsta and all, to give your culture a modicum of street cred.

    The standard being used is 3 victims shot, or killed, in multiple locations.

    I’m going to say let me know why I can’t just say Buffalo shooter. Because that is enough.

    So when a white American kills a black American, is that racism?

    When they do it because they think black people deserve it? Yes. That’s terrorism. The same terrorism right wingers endorse and support.

    I can't even begin to count the number of times she used sources she didn't even bother to read.

    Well maybe because a) He was a self described communist/socialist b) Having opinions based on your imagination aren't accurate sources

    This goes back to you just wanting to use words based on your feelings instead of actual meaning.

    That just makes your entire world view driven entirely by emotional nonsense.

    I like that she doesn't understand they included hispanics as "white", and also doesn't realize that her figures show the 13% of the black population committing crime at 3x their population size.

    So much unintentional information in her post.

    Here is a source that reports race of all identified mass shooters, not just select ones like your statistica graph.

    https://mass-shootings.info/statistics.php

    In 2021, 75% of mass shooters were Black and 12% white.

    If you want to use sources that report huge numbers of mass shootings you have to accept the fact including those statistics is going to skew the racial breakdown of perpetrators.


    To be clear, because I know a strawman argument of “you’re a racist” is the go to, I’m just pointing out facts, not making any judgment. I’m just pointing out you should actually do some research and choose your statistics more wisely if you wish to have credibility.

    It’s just garbage propaganda they read from a journalist with an agenda. They are given talking points and carefully selected statistics and they repeat them here.

    They don’t care to understand. “Research” to them is parroting what they hear from those whose authority they appeal to.

    This individual also thinks I should somehow be ashamed to have a job and provide a roof over my own head.

    Remember during the covid hysteria all of us so-called essential workers were heroes. While teachers sat that one out.

    Many of them did everything they could to avoid physically going back to work. Preferring instead to sit home and collect a check from we the taxpayers.

    Of course there were some teachers that weren't down with that program and I do respect those.

    Mass shooters only make up a tiny fraction of all murders. That’s not even scratching the surface of 54% of ALL murders in the US.

    I asked for a list not some pie chart that blurs the lines of who is doing what.
