Vegas massacre: ‘White privilege’ does not explain mass shooting

While some blamed the mass shooting in Las Vegas on “white privilege,” new FBI crime statistics suggest that white people may not be the real problem when it comes to violent crime in America.

    Newly released figures show that asarrests in 2016, blacks were vastly overrepresented in virtually every crime category. Despite being only 13 percent of the US population, total arrests of African Americans reached 2 263 112 in 2016 compared to 5 858 330 arrests of whites, who make up around 73 percent of the population.

    African Americans are more likely than whites to be arrested for “murder and non-negligent manslaughter” despite being a tiny minority, clocking up 52.6 percent of all arrests in this category.

    “Of adults arrested for murder, 52.0 percent were Black or African American, 45.4 percent were White, and 2.6 percent were of other races,” the FBI report stated.

    They were sadly also overrepresented in virtually every other category, including robbery, rape, aggravated assault, motor vehicle theft and prostitution and weapons violations.

    In the aftermath of the Las Vegas massacre, leftists attempted to argue that “white privilege” explains why white mass shooters are called “lone wolves” rather than terrorists. Terrorism however is dependent on whether an attack has a political or religious motive, not the skin colour of the attacker.

    They claim that white people are overrepresented when it comes to mass shootings when in fact the opposite is true. Even the far-left Slate acknowledged, white people are underrepresented when it comes to mass shootings. They make up about 73 percent of the US population, yet commit some 56 percent of mass shootings.

    The police department of Las Vegas, meanwhile has changed their timeline of events several times already.

    Conservative pundit Ann Coulter has suggested that the shooting may actually be a huge cover-up or inside job, since the mainstream narrative makes no sense.

    Another woman by the name of Kymberley Suchomel, 28, passed away Monday at her Apple Valley home just days after she had survived the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history unscathed, according to multiple mainstream media reports.

    Suchomel, who posted her eyewitness account of the Las Vegas massacre in astonishingly vivid detail to her Facebook page on 4 October, contradicted the official narrative which claims that Stephen Paddock was the lone gunman.

    Las Vegas shooting victim Rocky Palermo, a survivor, says that there were multiple shooters, and several were in the venue – the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival, giving credence to the the scientific accoustics report published by

    Based in Nevada, James J. Murren, Chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International and owner of the Mandalay Hotel from where the alleged shooter massacred the white concert-goers, is a member of Homeland Security’s National Infrastructure Advisory Council.

    The state of Nevada hopes to pass a law soon forcing casinos to have mandatory metal detectors and backscatter machines, a poster has suggested. A federal law is being discussed too, to put these machines in universities, high schools, federal buildings. OSI systems and Michael Chertoff are the main producers of these machines and this poingnant information has provided new fodder for armchair analysts.

    Both George Soros and Chertoff are part of the company Rapiscan, whose contract is worth $173 million. George Soros owned 11 300 shares of OSI Systems, Inc., the company that owns Rapiscan.
