The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

WaPost op-ed blames whites for mass shootings; fact remains minorities are over-represented for ALL murder types, including mass murder

Written By: Bob - Mar• 30•13

A pair of sister-researchers that make their living off the government teat have decided to blame white men for mass shootings:

Imagine if African American men and boys were committing mass shootings month after month, year after year. Articles and interviews would flood the media, and we’d have political debates demanding that African Americans be “held accountable.” Then, if an atrocity such as the Newtown, Conn., shootings took place and African American male leaders held a news conference to offer solutions, their credibility would be questionable. The public would tell these leaders that they need to focus on problems in their own culture and communities.

But when the criminals and leaders are white men, race and gender become the elephant in the room.

Nearly all of the mass shootings in this country in recent years — not just Newtown, Aurora, Fort Hood, Tucson and Columbine — have been committed by white men and boys. Yet when the National Rifle Association (NRA), led by white men, held a news conference after the Newtown massacre to advise Americans on how to reduce gun violence, its leaders’ opinions were widely discussed.

Unlike other groups, white men are not used to being singled out. So we expect that many of them will protest it is unfair if we talk about them. But our nation must correctly define their contribution to our problem of gun violence if it is to be solved.

The thing is, the sisters are lying.

Whites are under-represented by race in mass shootings, as are Hispanics, when you look at percentage of total population. Don’t take my word for it, either; look at the stats kept by über-left-wing Mother Jones.

Over-represented are Asians, like Virginia Tech shooter Seung-Hui Cho, One L. Goh, Jeong Soo Paek, Jiverly Wong, Byran Koji Uyesugi and Gang Lu who are all East Asian, and West Asian/Arabs, such as Nidal Hassan, and Abdelkrim Belachheb, whom the sisters dishonestly label “white.”

Also over-represented are black mass murders like Omar S. Thornton, Maurice Clemmons, Charles Lee Thornton, William D. Baker, Arthur Wise, Clifton McCree, Nathan Dunlap, Colin Ferguson, and we’re not even including the DC Snipers, John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo, because they are arguably serial killers instead.

While white mass murderers are given considerable airtime, black mass murderers are ignored by the mass media as quickly as they possibly can… including the racist Washington Post.

We also know that run of the mill, every day violence is also primarily caused by minorities.

Are these overtly liberal sisters really sure they want to start playing race games? As it invariably leads back to the failure of progressive social engineering, I don’t think they do.

    Have you noticed that since O took office, the hate against whites has gone sky high? There seems to be a concerted organized effort to make whites into second class citizens.

  2. guffaw says:

    Thanks Bob!
    Quoting and linking to you, soon.

    Awaiting the charge of racism in 3…2…1…

    of course they want to play that game, they know the msm will carry their water for them and all the low info americans will feed at the leftard trough of disinformation like this and spread the lie.

  4. Neo says:

    I see that Nidal Hassan was also consider “white” .. a white muslim jihadi who commited “work place violence”

  5. Tarheel Repub says:

    It all makes sense now. Didn’t the MSM label George Zimmerman a “white hispanic”? This way all gun crimes are committed by evil whitey.

    Tarheel Repub Out!

    • Lauran says:

      And when the mother of the “victim” spoke to the media she stated that “they killed my boy.” “They,” of course, meaning whites.

  6. Comrade X says:

    There are seven times more murders committed by blacks than whites.

    FBI Crime Stats for 2010 show that there are 14.82 murders per 100K by blacks versus 2.17 per 100K for whites.

    But the truth is white people (and their lefty black minions) are to blame for these rates, the whites who continue to support policies that keep the blacks on the plantations of our inner city with no hope or way out but via violence and death!

    Something they have planned for us all!

    Death before slavery!

    • figment says:

      that’s pretty impressive as blacks are what – 13% of the populace? (sarc)

    • JAL says:

      CDC 2010
      Homicides by firearms > 11,000
      Black male victims of homicide by firearms >5,500
      1/2 of all firearm homicides in the US are black males.
      Perps: Almost all black males.
      Black males ~ 6% of total population.

      I think the Sisters Childress thought they would provoke ugly responses from some white males thus proving their “point.”

      Instead they have wedged open the Pandora’s box of the truth about guns and violence in America.

      The Sisters Childress have 8 undergraduate degrees, 4 masters and a PhD between them.

      They appear to have failed research methods, not to mention basic math. And display a basic ethics and integrity deficit.

      • JAL says:

        Correction — 8 total degrees which include the 4 masters and 1 PhD.

      • E. Gads says:

        They’re academically and socially inbred. Would LOVE to know the capacity they consulted in with Fortune 500 and NASA…

    Twisted Sisters, nuff said.

  8. Jaynie59 says:

    I want to commend Bob for his skill in writing headlines. Since the election I’ve been Sharing articles so they show up on my Facebook feed. The problem is that I know my stupid liberal friends won’t actually click on the links. They’ll only see the headline.

    You do a great job with your headlines. Too many conservative bloggers write sarcastic or ironic headlines so I don’t share them because it defeats the purpose.

  9. rumcrook™ says:

    another thing they are “over represented” in are flash mob mini riots.

  10. Melissa says:

    This is why a Conservative needs to buy a media outlet-to get these statistics out to the public. The left has too much power to shape the “narrative” and as a result, we get distorted, and racist, nonsense spouted by these stupid women.

  11. West Side Irish says:

    Same argument made regarding serial killers. The Zebra Killers were a group of african americans who conspired to kill caucasian San Franciscans back in 1973-74.

    They killed 16 and wounded 10. Four life sentences were handed down by the court. Many others were involved and never served time.

  12. Brad says:

    As I like to say: guns don’t kill people – Democrats kill people!

  13. Lou Gots says:

    Middle Easterners, Arabs, Turks and Persians alike, definitely consider themselves, “white.” Indeed, many I have spoken to are quite touchy about it.

  14. Skyler says:

    Arabs are most definitely white. Just because they are not from Europe does not mean they are not Caucasian. You are confusing race with ethnicity.

    • JAL says:

      True enough but that is only a convenient detail used to further the bigotry of the left. When it suits their purposes the Arabs, and “Asians” not specfically Chinese, Japanese or Korean, plus anyone else they can throw into the mix are used to make the white [western] male Evil Incarnate.

      The game is up.

      Anyone taking bets on whether the WaPo will follow up with factual corrections or an op-ed including the real data on “mass” murders, serial killings and street violence?

      Do. Not. Hold. Your. Breath.

      Journalism is dead in the USA mainstream.

  15. Jeff H says:

    Like so many on the sinister side, these libsters are most likely too stupid to understand the reality of “those number thingies” (statistics).

  16. theBuckWheat says:

    But, don’t you know that with everything liberal (er, now “progressive”), the meaning of words and phrases is plastic and malleable to bend in the service of The Agenda. So, what, exactly, is “black” and what, exactly is “white”?

    We know that since Bill Clinton was hailed as the first black president by none other than a Nobel laureate, Tony Morrison, that “black” must mean something other than genetic makeup. Now “black” has been morphed into “people of color”, which is another way of saying “not white”.

    If Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas can be called out by Time magazine’s Jack White as one of the scariest white men in Washington, then clearly this is not about genetics, but about ideology, or more clearly, about world views.

    I am not concerned about what colar blacks, or even people of color are on the surface of their skin, but that too many want our nation to be red, as in socialism. Now there are plenty of Caucasian socialists as well, but it looks like the consensus among the chattering class is that whites are less socialist than the other segments of society.

  17. Mulder says:

    Black-on-black gun crimes are in essence large mass shootings which occur day after day, month after month, year after year.

  18. Grim says:

    Mother Jones also left off Chai Vang, the Hmong shooter (six fatalities).

  19. elaine says:

    The sisters also claimed that mental health is a non-issue, and that “women and girls with mental health issues are not picking up semiautomatic weapons and shooting schoolchildren.”

    I found a case where that actually did happen. The only reason it didn’t end up as a mass murder was because, apparently, the doer wasn’t a very good shot. 17-year-old Brenda Spencer was bored one Monday shortly after Christmas, and decided to take her new semi-automatic .22 rifle to the elementary school across the street and start killing people. A janitor and the principal were killed as they threw themselves on the children. A cop and eight children were injured but not killed.

    Then there was Jennifer San Marco, a mentally ill former Postal Worker who killed six before ending her own life. So clearly, there are mentally ill women out there who are more than willing to kill other people with guns. But I guess since it wasn’t schoolchildren in her case, it’s no big deal…

    There was yet-another would-be female mass murderer who shot victims (including several children, one of whom she killed) named Sylvia Seegrist. On Oct. 30, 1985, Sylvia started firing at people in the parking lot of the Springfield Mall outside Philadelphia PA. She then went inside, continuing her violence. Two died that day, another died of his wounds later. In all, she shot eight people. And did I mention she had a long history of mental problems?

    As a matter of fact, women murderers are more likely to be mentally ill than their male counterparts. So I guess if the Childress sisters pretend the mentally ill having guns isn’t a problem, then they can ignore an awful lot of inconvenient truth, can’t they?

    Of course one thing that gets women killers off the hook here is that they tend to select other means of killing (like drowning, suffocation, or poison). But since we’re talking about mass murder by gun, we get to sweep all sorts of malevolence under the rug, don’t we? So while it’s rare for women to commit or even attempt mass murder, it has happened, and will happen again. And I’m sure the sisters Childress will be right there, ignoring it all…

  20. Mudlark says:

    I seem to remember a black man shooting commuters on the Long Island Railroad about ten years ago because he hated whites, although he shot assorted Asians and hispanics as well. Apparently the WoPo forgot about the DC snipers who held the region in terror for some weeks.

    And its really, really a great thing when hundreds of Obama’s sons and daughters go wilding. Theft, assault and random mayhem really don’t count.

    No its whites, like the Korean who shot gun Viriginia Tech who are to blame.

    Ever see how diverse the WoPo Editorial staff is? Just as diverse as CNN, or MSNBC.

    I can understand why they hate themselves.

  21. Jeff Hoser says:

    A most curious conclusion, especially when one examines the FBI UCR stats. “Mass homicide” seems largely the venue of black/mixed race ethnicity if one accepts there are a large number of perps at work. The Latino community ranks second by a notable margin.

    Speaking of the UCR, has anyone else noted how what was once a simple statistical aggregation in PDF format has – since 2008 – morphed into a complex and obtuse compilation requiring the user to access/correlate multiple pages in order to track a specific statistic ? >Jeff
