I remember the Islamist who ran over near 200 people in Nice, France. Do you remember him? #letsbantrucks

I agree, Trump's white supremacy rhetoric inspires murder, like in Charlottesville

You make a good point though: other things also happen sometimes.


Nowadays, the media prefers to focus on suspects who are of a particular race like the ones in TX and Ohio.


Yes Stacy just like the news report I just watched on channel 2 looking for 3 black guys in Washington Heights who robbed somebody getting out of an Uber, a bulletin looking for a black woman in a red wig and black man concerning a shooting involving a parking spot in the Bronx and a black guy aiming a gun at woman in Jamaica Queens and pulling the trigger of the gun only It jammed. Let us guess you’re a Fox News viewer.


“As The New York Times has calculated, this kind of mass violence visits communities across America with frightening regularity. Most often, the numbers show, it occurs in neighborhoods like Brownsville — mostly poor, mostly black — and struggles to attract attention outside of them. “

Those were just shootings

Thanks for agreeing that the vast majority of mass shooters are white

I agree, almost all mass shootings were done by white males

Good point: the news reports on newsworthy stories

That's an alt-right tabloid

Are you gullible enough to read that?

Mass shootings from white guys:

* A shooting in a historic district of Dayton, Ohio, with nine people killed
* A shooting at Walmart in El Paso, Texas, with 22 people killed, the deadliest shooting of the year.
* A shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival, with three people killed.


Read a newspaper and see who is committing all the grand larcenys, rapes and homicides on a daily basis.

Anon we were talking about mass shootings

Almost all mass shootings were done by white males; I guess we can talk about something completely different though.


104th Precinct (Middle Village)
Get dance lessons and a free concert at the 104th Precinct’s Night Out Against Crime. Located in Juniper Valley Park at the 80th Street entrance between Juniper Boulevard North and Juniper Boulevard South, the celebration will also include giveaways, rides, refreshments and health screenings. The fun will take place from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
