White Men Have Much to Discuss About Mass Shootings

Charlotte Childress and Hariet Childress, Washington Post, March 29, 2013

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, AuroraFort HoodTucson 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.

When white men try to divert attention from gun control by talking about mental health issues, many people buy into the idea that the United States has a national mental health problem, or flawed systems with which to address those problems, and they think that is what produces mass shootings.

But women and girls with mental health issues are not picking up semiautomatic weapons and shooting schoolchildren. Immigrants with mental health issues are not committing mass shootings in malls and movie theaters. Latinos with mental health issues are not continually killing groups of strangers.

{snip}

If life were equitable, white male gun-rights advocates would face some serious questions to assess their degree of credibility and objectivity. We would expect them to explain:

What facets of white male culture create so many mass shootings?

Why are so many white men and boys producing and entertaining themselves with violent video games and other media?

Why do white men buy, sell and manufacture guns for profit; attend gun shows; and demonstrate for unrestricted gun access disproportionately more than people of other ethnicities or races?

Why are white male congressmen leading the fight against gun control?

If Americans ask the right questions on gun issues, we will get the right answers. These answers will encourage white men to examine their role in their own culture and to help other white men and boys become healthier and less violent.

    Does Nidal Hassan count as white for this purpose?
    As vdare . com has already dissected, there are plenty of black mass shooters, an da few Asian mass shooters, too, but I guess those have to be ignored by the left. If only there were as few black shooters around as white mass shooters. But, then again, the black shooters mostly kill blacks, so I shouldn’t complain.

    • All mass shooters are white, even the black ones.

      “Unlike other groups, white men are not used to being singled out”? Not in my world!

      The main problem with the piece is that it’s completely insane—white people, in spite of being the majority, commit very few murders compared to non-whites.

      And blacks and immigrants commit mass shootings, too, they just don’t get promoted in the Main Stream Media, any more than black serial killers do. I have a long list of immigrant mass murders, few of them even white immigrants.

      I could make you a long list of Asian shooters: the Virginia Tech shooter, the Binghamton shooter, the Oikos University shooter, and a good many school shootings. (Asians are very good students—but they’re also very good school shooters.)

    White Men Have Much to Discuss About Mass Shootings
    ____________________________________________
    If there’s going to be a discussion on it, I advise the minorities to discuss it a bit. Especially from the standpoint of shooting. Can minorities shoot with such effectiveness?

    • I know I shoot most effectively when I hold the handgun sideways at waist height.

      • khesanh67-68

        yeah, me too…

  • bigone4u

    High intelligence can be used for great kindness and great accomplishment. White men have a centuries long track record of using their intelligence to benefit all mankind through charity and invention. In today’s university white men are trashed for that, called out constantly as evil patriarchs and racists, denied opportunity in the job market, and mocked and ridiculed in the media. Many are turning to homosexuality to escape their demonization.
    High intelligence can also be used to evil ends, as the Bible warns. The reason that blacks have limited success as serial killers and mass shooters is that they don’t have the intelligence to plan and carry out successful mass shootings. White men have the intelligence and the motive to go ballistic. In times past white men had white women and their children to restrain them, but our culture has taken that away from many white men too.
    The white male shooter is typically a loner, unable to attract a woman and create a loving family. Blame the man-hating feminists/lesbians and their political power for that. Blame the anti-white, anti-Christian US government. Blame the black inspired culture. Blame the enemies of whites in the media.
    When white men go postal I grieve because I have lost a brother, one who could have used his intelligence and energies constructively.

    • ye ol’ swampyankee

      Great points.

      Allow me to add. Much has been written as well claiming that public schools have become boy unfriendly environments, producing dysfunctional young men. Feminism permeates public school systems today. A coincidence?

          I remember reading somewhere about lesbians getting raped by this black who was going into the houses at night by sneaking in through open windows. These two look like lesbians probably by necessity or by default, being both feminist and ugly so they never had the opportunity to be wives and mothers. If he snuck into their house and raped them they would probably refuse to file charges, “understanding his black rage.”

  • IstvanIN

    Who commits most of the gun violence in the US? Africans.
    Who doesn’t get called on their violent behavior? Africans.

    • Notice there is no call for the National Guard to raid gang areas and disarm minority gangs where MOST of the members are KNOWN FELONS.

      They’d rather blame law-abiding Whites….screw them.

  • Imagine if African American men and boys were committing shooting each other daily in every metropolitan area in the country. Articles and interviews would not be written, and we’d have no debates demanding that African Americans be “held accountable.” In fact we would be silent and ignore the violence, referring to the killers as “teens” or “yoofs”.

    This article is garbage and should not have been published, ever by a newspaper put out by a 100% black high school.

  • Jss

    As a White male my solution is for all the precious diversity to get as far away from us as possible to avoid all our mass shootings. There, problem solved.

    Yeah we aren’t used to being singled out and all that. Sorry diversity, I guess you can stop trying to help us now. We are just to privileged and stubborn. Sorry. We don’t deserve your vibrancy. You should go take it somewhere else and build your own White male mass shooting free utopia with out us now. And don’t let the door hit you in the (expletive).

  • LastBastionOfHope

    Funny how quickly the media forgets about Dorner, the DC sniper, and the LIRR killer…all black serial killers. But nope, let’s focus on whitey only.

    • Do I have to say it again? All mass shooters are white, even the black ones.

    • The__Bobster

      http://www.vdare.com/articles/the-fulford-file-by-james-fulford-76

      “The 90 identified African American serial killers compose 21.8% of the sample of Black and White killers. This figure approximates the 22% estimate made by Hickey’s (1997) sample of 337 serial killers of all races operating in the United States across a 165-year period.

      “Far from being absent or severely underrepresented in the ranks of serial killers, then, African Americans are represented among serial killers at a rate approximately twice one would expect based on the average percentage of African Americans in the population (approximately 10.5%) across the 58-year time period examined.

      • MBlanc46

        Serial killers and rampage killers are different. I don’t know that it’s significant, but white guys do seem to have the propensity to go on the shooting rampages. Blacks are certainly present among the serial killers, although I don’t know if it’s in proportion to their population.

  • brengunn

    The whole premise of the article is wrong because it’s the fact that the shooters are white and the victims are white that elevates these issues to national and international news. In Europe, we generally don’t her of the high numbers of inner city gun deaths in America but mass shootings by deranged white guys is always front page news. From watching American media, the same also seems to be true there.

    She seems to be denying that these cases are anomalies, perpetrated by people with mental health problems, though she is right that lax gun laws facilitate these crimes.

  • MekongDelta69

    As always, the left writes something, projects their views onto others, and winds up 180 degrees off target.

    I have NEVER seen so many white people turn so demented in such a short period of human history (i.e. 50 years).

    I’ve been saying this forever, but it just HAS to be a genetic mutation or some kind of brain chemical defect.

    • purestocles

      I think it’s the fallout from the Vietnam War. Watching women and babies being slaughtered on the evening news turned a lot of us off to the whole patriotism thing. We just couldn’t figure out what the Vietnamese had done to us that warranted the rain of bombs and agent orange we pummeled them with. This made many white guys apologetic about their “white privilege” (not called that at the time) and they didn’t want to inherit the mantle of power bequeathed to them by their fathers. That left the field open to others who were not so squeamish and who exploited the situation by heaping a steaming load of guilt on those now-timid white guys. Once they realized they could get away with it, they made an industry out of it. But as Hegel would have predicted, they’ve gone too far and are now provoking a reaction.

      • IstvanIN

        Vietnam was the first televised war. We had a draft. The press was against the Vietnam war. Thus it was easy to turn us against the Vietnam war, which we had no business being in, and we lost. That war was truly a disaster for this nation.

    Imagine if blacks had a murder rate that was nearly eight times the white murder rate.

    Oh wait! They do.

    Are they held accountable? No. Whenever the high rate of black crime and black incarceration is mentioned white are expect ed t o feel ashamed.

    I do not think we should feel ashamed. I think blacks should feel ashamed. It is not our fault that they commit all those crimes. It is their fault.

  • APaige

    Since 1982, there have been at least 62 mass shootings. A’Mass shooting’ which the article is about is considered a single event where four or more people (not including the shooter) are shot to death. Forty four of the 62 (~70%) were white males. These numbers are from Mother Jones a liberal/progressive magazine. But consider that “Crimes primarily related to gang activity or armed robbery are not included.” So if a Latino gang banger kills four people it is not a ‘mass shooting’ nor is a black who kills four robbing a store.

    • pcmustgo

      OOOOHHHH….. 62 shootings since 1982! That’s soooooooo much given that we live in a country of 300 million people..

      • Jefferson

        Black America has committed more homicides in the last 12 months than all of the mass shootings since 1982 combined.

    • Bad_Mr_Frosty

      Also take note that typically, diversity can’t hit the broad side of a barn. I’m sure a lot of shootings were meant to be mass shootings, but the perp was stopped or ran out of ammo before he could take out 4 people.

  • jay11

    “Imagine if African American men and boys were committing mass shootings month after month, year after year.”

    Do these two black women realize there is a place called Chicago (and Camden and Philly, etc) in which black men do these things? In fact, it is a daily occurrence in many cities in black neighborhoods. Of course to point this out would be to risk the label of ‘racist’ so they can shut down the logical conversation.

    It’s the psychotropic drugs that are forced on white male students . . . in order to make the teacher’s job easier, boys are routinely “medicated” with powerful drugs . . . you see, boys that are normally rambunctious must be “toned down” (like girls) . . . the one way to do it is with drugs. Unfortunately when boys stop taking the drugs, certain manifestations take place in the brain . . . none of them pleasant . . . Investigations into these mind-altering substances need to be made.

    • ncpride

      You’re right about that. I’ve posted this before, but when my son was in 4th grade, there were 5 White boys in his class on these drugs who spoke openly about it. That is beyond disturbing. A close female relative of mine was convinced to put her 5 year old on these drugs because he wouldn’t ‘sit still’ in class. She took him off them (thank goodness) after he complained to her that his head felt ‘crazy’. If I’m not mistaken, I read somewhere that most of the school shooters were on, or had been on, some version of these drugs for one reason or another. The long term effects of those drugs are dangerous and frightening.

    Liberal whites get so upset when blacks are held to account. It compels them to try to change the subject back to critiques of white males.

    I wonder what set them off. The baby in the stroller shooting?

    • gemjunior

      I’m glad you mentioned that actually. Of all the lunacy that goes on in this country I still can’t believe how that one has just gone away, just faded off quietly. Black thugs blew away a white infant. Put a gun to its head and pulled the trigger – blew his little head off. I just don’t get it, how apathetic people are. Because this just feels wrong, I mean More Wrong than anything. I felt this way about the Wichita and Knoxville Massacres – and then a little white baby is shot in his head. How much lower is the bar before our lazy, apathetic, cowardly kin stand up to the cutthroats who hate us and want us all dead? That baby was white. No matter what his name was or how the family was, he was a little white baby. Just like what’s going on in South Africa which causes people to gasp. I believe that they are diverting attention by setting up this farce of a critique to get white males back into the spotlight as the root of all evil.
      If this was two white teens or men that shot a black baby, cities would have burned in the riots that would have ensued. Crown Heights riots when Gavin Cato was hit by a Hasidic Jew in a car and then Yankel Rosenbaum was stabbed to death by an unknown black amidst the rioters. No one came forward although I bet several saw it. Its amazing how little ethnic solidarity exists in White America. Sometimes it’s scary.

  • KYTim89

    As a white male in contemporary America I always get this vibe that everyone assumes that I am going to go on some mass spree killing in a shopping mall, or some other crowded place. Every time I mention that I am interested in getting into guns, not for killing non-lethal humans or animals, but simply as recreation, a way to relieve stress, and to exercise my right to keep and bear arms, which every American is entitled to do as long as there is air within their lungs, people get nervous and claim that I should own guns for my own good.

    Now, it is pretty evident in modern society that the white male is obsolete. Look at the way modern white hetero-sexual males are portrayed on TV. They are portrayed as bumbling fools, or some kind of miscreant, and the nonwhite males, or white homo-sexual are seen as the savior of mankind. The best example of this are those ADT commercials where the lone white female is at home at night by herself and the hooded white male rapist breaks into her home. She immediately dial her security company and a non-threatening black male notifies the police that she is in danger and to send help ASAP.

    One of the worse places to see the obsolescence of the white male is the work place. Thanks to Affirmative Action woman and minorities are elevated to positions where they do not have the skills to quality to maintain their prescience within that occupation. Now, if a white male brings too much productivity to a company then labor unions, lawyers, and even the government push to have him fired dues to him taking opprotunites away from non-white males.

    I couldn’t get past the first sentence. “If blacks were doing this…..”

    We all know the media is blacking out the huge black on white violence of the past several years. And then one of them writes this…..!!!!!!!!!!

    Someone will have to tell me, but I bet they never get to the point where they consider that oppression of white boys has created an occasional white mass shooter. And they just shoot whites, so why should these journalists care? That includes the Korean and black mass shooters we’ve had too, Everyone goes after whites.

  • a multiracial individual

    Are these journalists filthy liars, or do they merely suffer from a poor understanding of mathematics? White males are disproportionately represented in mass shootings (99% of homicides.

    “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.”

    Wow. They are really insane. Is she saying “Imagine if black men and boys were the violent, out of control savages they are in real life” or what?

    “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. ”
    Are these two biddies joking? Have they added up the number of victims of these disturbed white men and boys? Because it’s like 0.000000000001% of those killed by their brethren.

    As a white male who’s FBI file says “firearms expert, explosives expert, chemist, ex-mercenary”, I feel obliged to pipe up.

    My specialty was land mines, usually used with unexploded aircraft bombs reburied just below them. It was as ugly as a three-day day hangover with dry-heaves, but we stopped them, as well as a lot of their scouting and de-mining parties.

    That was war.

    For my brethren on both ends of the peace pipe, I have to say listen to your son, and when he’s angry about something, let him talk it out, and then wear him out hiking, and give him some advice. You have as his father more experience in these things than he.

    You can’t take these things very seriously. One of the other Lt’s lost it in a firefight and shot himself in his head rather than try to organize a fighting retreat back down the road. We’d have had the Chetniks flanked on both sides and dead to rights if they’d been sucked into the retreat.

    Why?

    White men have more to lose than anyone else. Let’s talk about what white men built and why.

    You first, Charlotte and Hariet

    Ft. Hood was not a tragedy caused by a white man. Ft. Hood was a shooting performed by a Semitic man of the Islamo persuasion.

    Tucson was not a tragedy caused by a white man. Tucson was a shooting performed by a Semitic man of the Judeo persuasion.

    So Charlotte and Hariet, if we are going to point fingers… Oh wait, never mind.

  • Bill

    Is race to blame? No. Our coddling society, the b.s. “science” of psychiatry, the de-institutionalization of nutbars, and allowing medicated zombies on the street who are prone to anti-social acts or violence if they go OFF their meds is to blame. But then, if you want to talk about Detroit, or Chicago, or Atlanta, or Baltimore or…….then it IS about race, but we can’t have THAT discussion, can we?????

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    Even though slickly written, this piece was so full of half-truths, so cockeyed in its “logic,” so twisted in its reasoning, that I thought sure it must have been written by a black writer. Imagine my dismay when I discovered it was penned by two presumably white sisters. Now the reasoning ability of females has just plummeted in my estimation.

    Mass shootings make up less than 1% of gun homicides. So why do writers focus on mass shootings and ignore more than 99% of the others? If motive isn’t obvious then this article gives a very strong clue. However, the authors of this article make the same mistake many do by focusing on absolute values and ignoring relative rates.

    Most mass shootings are perpetrated by white men because whites are the majority and women almost never perpetrate mass shootings. But white men don’t have the highest rate of mass shootings. Mother Jones compiled a listing the 62 mass shootings since 1982. So I went to the Mother Jones article, looked the shooters up and plugged their race into a spreadsheet. This is the percentage of mass shootings committed by whites, blacks, asians and hispanics.

    Asians make up 4% of the population but comprised 10% of mass shooters Blacks make up 12% of the population but comprised 14% of mass shooters Hispanics make up 13% of the population but comprised 6% of mass shooters Whites make up 75% of the population but comprised 65% of mass shooters

    As you can see, blacks and asians comprised disproportionately MORE mass shooters. While whites and hispanics comprised disproportionately FEWER mass shooters. That’s not what most people expect. But the numbers are what they are.

  • Terry

    Actually, whites didn’t create the mass shootings because the mass shooters were not white, they were Jews. Holmes, a Jew, Harris and Klebold both Jews, Lanza a Jew. Besides. all of these mass shootings were hoaxes. Do you really believe that Gabrielle Gifford was shot at point blank range, in the head, with a 9 mm hand gun that is using hollow point ammunition?? What are you insane. She never would have survived. Besides, on her web site she had two links; one to a senator, and the other to Jerrod Laughner, the shooter. Why would she have a link to the shooter. Well this is kind of important. Gifford is a Jew and so is Laughner. They attended, and probably still attend, the same synagogue. Also, many people have checked the archives for past and present Congressmen. She was not listed as a Congressman until recently. A few weeks after the shooting, she was not listed. The Gabrielle Gifford shooting was a hoax that was done by the Jews.

    “Unlike other groups, white men are not used to being singled out”

    White men and their bigotry and privilege have been singled out as the cause of any and all problems this Earth has ever seen. This is the official starting point of any discussion going on 60 years now.

    We live in a world where every human on Earth is thought to be precious and pristine, with all problems and faulty behavior caused by oppressions humans face. The lone exception to this idea is white men, who must be watched, educated about, discriminated against and legislated against – they must be oppressed in order to be properly behaved and properly acting citizens. Even small honey bees and snails suffer only because of white men.

    Even though there is a fair amount of unreality in the article I do have to agree with some of it’s suggestions. . .

  • Frank

    The Ft. Hood shooter is not white.

    • George

      Neither were the Washington Sniper(s) nor the shooter in Virginia.

  • liberal media scum

    “Imagine if African American men and boys were committing mass shootings month after month, year after year.” This is typical racist bigoted liberal media spew trying to capitalize on tragedy as they usually do. What about the serial killer muslim pos at Ft Hood ? Was he white?

    The Newtown Hollywood video game freak, Aurora graduate student and Tuscon college student were liberal scumbags and even possibly sympathetic to muslims like most liberals. Aurora Holmes is now a full blown converted muslim. Newtown was acting in typical muslim fashion. Black criminal murder 12,000 annually in America and only 10% of the population of whites in America.

  • Andy

    White men are slightly *less* likely to be mass shooters than men of other races. http://westernwindows.blogspot.com/2013/02/race-of-spree-and-serial-killers.html

  • lying racist liberal media

    The 911 muslim killers were white? The Fort Hood muslim serial killer was white? Coral Watts who murdered over 100 white women was white? Wayne Williams who murdered over 25 black teens was white?

  • rebelcelt

    what country do these authors live in?..not the USA

  • Joel W

    so the fort hood shooter is white now? unbelievable. and they conveniently forgot about the black/muslim dc area sniper.

  • Anonymous

    This country is teeming with angry young White males. Their natural instincts have been controlled by pharmaceuticals as directed by the Progressive agenda. If they’re rambunctious as young men tend to be, they are zombified by Ritalin and other related drugs; all of which can produce suicidal or homicidal or both urges. They’re been marginalized and showered with White guilt and many of them bullied until they’re pushed to the edge. Why is it that with some exceptions we didn’t have mass shootings in schools? The Howard Unruh incident in Camden was the first mass shooting not related to gangster activity.

  • LastBastionOfHope

    Also note the major difference between black and white serial killings. Blacks say the victims deserved it like in the Dorner case. Whites condemn other whites who kill innocent people. 2 totally different cultures.

  • Hunter Morrow

    I don’t have to imagine jack. Black and hispanics are less than 30 percent of the population and account for roughly 80 percent of the violent crime.

    Imagine if there was a city and 500 people a year got killed and it was blacks and hispanics pulling the trigger.

    Oh, what’s that? Sweet Home Chicago?

  • Sheila Dinehart

    Imagine if African American men and boys were committing mass shootings month after month, year after year.
    (I would suggest one seriously imagine just that, or recall that it has happened.)

    FORT HOOD?
    (That terrorist was anything but a White Man.)

    white men are not used to being singled out
    (I think you really believe that, which would be an obvious sign of brain disfunction since there is an inability to reason and aply logic…it has a name)

    Immigrants with mental health issues are not committing mass shootings in malls and movie theaters
    (What about trains, planes, and automobiles…)

    If life were equitable
    (There would not be a WAR ON WHITES…a white mother could put her baby in a stroller on a sunny day and not have black boys with guns shooting it to death for the hell of it because it is white, because she is white, because they have been taught to kill whites, destroy the white race, because they can’t be held to the white man’s standards for guilt in a court of law established by the white man,because their ancestors were slaves and they are reminded when they are born, through childhood and this thinking reinforced by their schools and every aspect of present society that they are victims of the white man and his evil culture even in the womb so payback in terms of violence must by now be in the blood, in the genes and you would not be able to have printed such a sadly silly little article that would cause someone like me to actually waste my time remarking upon it)

  • PesachPatriot

    I’m pretty sure that in america someone of any color is more statistically likely to die from an obesity related heart attack or an alcohol related car crash than from a mass shooting….These kind of incidents get tons of media attention but the steady drip of one or two deaths a day in the projects and hoods from coast to coast over cigarettes, scuffed sneakers, drug debts or liquor store robbery is so commonplace and trite at this point that it barely even makes the news any more. Also, I’m pretty sure the guy who shot up the mall in portland the same week as the Newtown tragedy was amerindian, not white.

  • David

    Whites are not overreprersented but it looks that way becuase from the low % of crime that is commited by whites most brain’s don’t make the link that whites are the majority of the country.
