Data shows that US does not have a ‘white’ mass shooter problem

A list of the people arrested or charged in the 255 mass shootings recorded this year in the United States show that the problem is not confined to whites.

Published: August 8, 2019, 9:18 am

    A mass shooting is defined as four or more people shot or killed. It appears that the problem facing the US does not come from white men nor so-called “white supremacy”.

    The common factor defining the perpetrators are young men whose biological father was not present during their childhood.

    In the wake of the Parkland school massacre in Florida, the Heritage Foundation cited a study showing that among the 25 most-cited school shooters since Columbine, 75 percent of the shooters come from broken homes.

    Most, according to psychologist Peter Langman, an expert on school shooters, came from homes that also experienced criminal behavior, infidelity, domestic violence, substance and child abuse.

    According to the Gateway Pundit, more than 140 mass shootings this year remain unsolved largely because witnesses would come forward to help the police.

    Last weekend, in the city of Chicago,  7 people were shot dead and 52 injured in shootings according to early police reports. In the same weekend, nine people were killed in Dayton, and 27 injured. In El Paso, 22 died and 25 were injured.

    But news of the shootings in Chicago never made the headlines. Instead, coverage especially for the event in El Paso dominated for which President Trump and white people in general were blamed.

    Frontpage Mag noted that “around the same time that the media was focused on the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, 60 people were shot in Chicago over the weekend. 24 of those people were shot in four hours”.

    Baltimore counted its 200th murder victim of the year during its “Ceasefire Weekend”. In Philadelphia, six men were shot during the filming of a rap video.

    In Toronto, Canada, 15 people were wounded in shootings over the weekend. Over 350 people have been shot this year in the Canadian city which has gun control.

    The perception that mass shootings are a “white man’s problem” is prevalent in the mainstream media. “We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men,” CNN’s anchor Don Lemon claimed.

    “White Men Have Committed More Mass Shootings Than Any Other Group,” Newsweek falsely stated.

    Data from the Mass Shooting Tracker however show that of the 72 mass shooters, 21 were white, 37 were black, 8 were Latino, and 6 were members of other ethnic non-white groups. Three mass shooters were Asian, two were American Indian and one was Arab.

    That means 51 percent of mass shooters in 2019 were black, 29 percent were white, and 11 percent were Latino.

    Whites make up 61 percent of the US population, followed by Hispanics at 17,8 percent, and African-Americans at 12,7 percent, suggesting that whites are actually underrepresented, while African-Americans are overrepresented.
