Note how most of the mass killers are white boys??
Tim McVeigh, the kids at Columbine, the skinhead that shot Gabby, the white guy in Aurora.
They can't point to a single mass killing committed by a black.
But there are lots of examples of white mass killers.
----------
"Why most mass murders are priveledged white men"
"Are white men particularly prone to carrying out the all-too-familiar mass killings of which last week’s Aurora shooting is just the latest iteration? Is there something about the white, male, middle-class experience that makes it easier for troubled young men to turn schools and movie theaters into killing fields? In a word, yes.
Perhaps the greatest asset that unearned privilege conveys is the sense that public spaces “belong” to you. If you are—like James Holmes last week, or Charles Whitman, who killed 16 people on the University of Texas, Austin campus in 1966—an American-born, college-educated white man from a prosperous family, you don’t have a sense that any place worth being is off-limits to the likes of you. White men from upper middle-class backgrounds expect to be both welcomed and heard wherever they go. When that sense of entitlement gets frustrated, as it can for a host of complex psychological reasons, it is those same hyper-privileged men who are the most likely to react with violent, rage-filled indignation. For white male murderers from “nice” families, the fact that they chose public spaces like schools, university campuses, or movie theaters as their targets suggests that they saw these places as legitimately theirs.
We don’t yet know what drove James Holmes to do the terrible things he did. We only partly understand what drove the likes of Eric Harris, Dylan Klebold, Charles Whitman, and the many other white men who have committed similar massacres. While each killer had a unique pathology that helped drive him to do the unthinkable, the fact that these white male mass murderers felt so confident choosing public spaces to commit their crimes reflects a powerful truth about the culture in which they were raised. Put simply, they did what they did because of an individual sickness—but they did it where they did it in part because of white privilege.
White men from prosperous families grow up with the expectation that our voices will be heard. We expect politicians and professors to listen to us and respond to our concerns. We expect public solutions to our problems. And when we’re hurting, the discrepancy between what we’ve been led to believe is our birthright and what we feel we’re receiving in terms of attention can be bewildering and infuriating. Every killer makes his pain another’s problem. But only those who’ve marinated in privilege can conclude that their private pain is the entire world’s problem with which to deal. This is why, while men of all races and classes murder their intimate partners, it is privileged young white dudes who are by far the likeliest to shoot up schools and movie theaters."
BS! Do a simple search on google and stop being so damn naive.....or racist, whichever the case may be. I am going to guess the latter!!!!

Nope. You didn't call someone at FOX. If you did, you wouldn't be lost in the wilderness still. You'd be in therapy and experiencing Stupidity Withdrawals.
Your rants about Paul Ryan and Ayn Rand being an atheist represent a Liberal shooting in the dark hoping to hit something. Here, you're back at it again. You present nothing of substance but only the sneers of a schoolyard punk. Gee. I'm impressed.
Your inability to comprehend Ayn Rand is very telling. You don't get it. You never will. "You didn't build that" is written all over your forehead like that of a wagoner driving a team of diarrhea horses.
Polls go up and down. Your intelligence doesn't, unfortunately. It just lays there like rotting fruit.
Are you saying Rand was not an athiest?? Take a stand and quit being a coward. Speak your mind, nitwit!!

C'mon, make my day. I'll bury you, ya freakin troll!!

Like no black leader has ever tried to annihilate another black group for ethnic reasons?

I suppose you don't consider it genocidal when it's a black-on-black crime? After all, hate crimes can only be committed by white people, right?

Your powers of inductive reasoning are phenomenal.

continuation of above Ayn Rand article.

"Based on her posthumously published "marginalia," it is clear that Rand read at least parts of Etienne Gilson's The Unity of Philosophical Experience and C. S. Lewis's The Abolition of Man. Gilson was one of the premier Roman Catholic philosophers of the twentieth century. Lewis, an Anglican, was a professor of literature at Oxford and Cambridge and an author of a number of works of apologetics. He was not a philosopher and his apologetic works are written on a more popular level."

Any of you nitwits brave enough to defend Ayn Rand??

I'd love it if any of you were brave enough to try.

King Obama: "If I had a son, he'd be corrupt like Jesse Jackson, Jr, mouth off like racist Louis Farrakhan, talk as weird as Wanda Sykes and smell like a dog pile in a Chicago sewer grate".
Maybe he could try the "plausible deniability" defense? >:}

There are several informative articles about these selected polling outfits and their sampling techniques. Skewed, to say the least.
But let the fools believe them - especially the "swing state" polls showing Obama is more popular than he was in 2008.
But you nitwits love FOX!! It was FOX that has th eTwit down 9 points!!

So when FOX shows the Twit sinking, you blame the polling??

You typically accept whatever FOX says, now that it says Romney is fading, you challenge your own puppetmasters!!

Gotta love your loyalty, or lack thereof!!

Those "mentally deficient" shooters are much more frequent in white people as well as autism, psychopathy, sociopathy and schizophrenia.
So sickness is NOT rare among whites.
I wonder when some of my dear friends can be victim of those barbarous freaks.
I'm not blaming anyone. Whites haven't any fault for can't control their genocidal rage. Anders Breivik, Robert Bales, Charles Manson, Ted Bundy,[the newest] Wade Michael Page and many other killers will appear endlessly and it behooves to protect our children.
Neither Manson nor Bundy acquired black victims. Try again, your reach exceeds your grasp.
