It's getting increasingly difficult to tell from Main Stream Media reports whether any given mass killing is a case of what VDARE.com calls Immigrant Mass Murder Syndrome (this is not, alas, a job Americans won't do).
While it may be true that some of the historic American people, on the rarest of occasions, have committed mass murders, I would like to take this opportunity to point out something about us, the Historic American.
Marvin Harris, one of the world's most noted anthropologists, wrote a book published in 1981, entitled America Now:The Anthropology of a Changing Culture, still in print under a new title Why Nothing Works: The Anthropology of Daily Life. In Chapter 6, Why There's Terror on the Streets, he states that if one subtracts the black and Hispanic violent crimes from the total, America is one of the LEAST violent nations on earth.
He also stated that whites, who own the overwhelming majority of firearms in the USA, had LOWER violent crime rates than the Japanese in Japan and the English in England. This is something the Main Stream Media will not discuss. Yet it is a fact.
It isn't the availability of firearms that gives the US its violent reputation: it is the black and Latino and Asian components of our homeland who are the true perpetrators of violence in the US.
See earlier letters from the same reader here and here.
VDARE.com note: For the record, Allan Wall subsequently discovered that the Hialeah shooter was indeed an immigrant.
