    The FBI standard is four or more shootings per incident. You want to argue that the FBI is full of it on this definition as I already have in this thread, join the club;

    Comparing drug related gang killings to mass shootings is silly

    Look at you and your pathetic excuses. So when a white guy commits a crime, it's because he's mentally ill, but when a black guy or a hispanic commits a crime it is because he is a "thug" or a gangster?

    Republicans always talk about personal responsibility but always quick to shift the blames elsewhere.

    Hispanics with common sense are able to keep El Paso in perspective and not become paranoid.

    Most of them support Trump’s harder view on illegal immigration, which shows me that Hispanics generally have a great deal of common sense.

    They’ll be ok.

    You should be more concerned about how the government in California has allowed the homeless problem to spiral out of control into a full blown health crisis. You have the mentally ill, human feces, pee, needles, an explosion of rats, garbage galore all over the cities. They are talking about epidemics breaking out. Between fires, smog, earthquakes, floods, the mentally ill American homeless on the streets, disease, etc, California is in BIG trouble. Have you seen pictures? It looks like a Third World country.

    As a latino immigrant, i am not more fearful of being a victim of a mass shooting than a white, black, asian, middle eastern or jew is. There is no evidence to suggest latinos are more a target than any other race or ethnicity. All you have to do is look at the stats.. how many whites have been a victim of mass shootings vs latinos? Is it even close?

    nah, they just drink a beer and deny it and become SC justices, Republicans do not care about that kinda stuff, they elected Trump didn't they?

    but this is a real diversion from the topic

    Poly

    First let me say what is my point in this thread

    I say there are groups thar are variously refereed to as white nationalist, white supremacist, white separatist

    I say they are racist, and can be violent about their racism

    I say that the shooting in el paso was an example

    I say that people who are aware of their violent racism would rightfully be concerned or fearful

    https://apple.news/AdlSCj57ORzqAvMPaQ1oQqQ

    I say that it is important to discuss such groups rather that ignoring them.... and that it is not racist to discuss this topic

    Further, i think trump has, in various ways, sought the support of such people and in doing so been sympathetic and encouraging to people with a proclivity for race based violence

    What about that do you think is racist and/or incorrect
