Of The "Thirty Deadliest" Shooters, At Least A Dozen Are Not White Males
Print Friendly and PDF
Recently I noted when the NYT said there had only been two incidents of “mass shooting” featuring two shooters, that both of those incidents involved non-white shooters, as did the Farook/Malik shooting San Bernardino. I might also have noted the Beltway Snipers—two black Muslims—but they’re not usually considered the same thing, since while they killed 10 people, it happened over a period of days.

Just before San Bernardino, the NYT, the Paper Of Record, was willing to say that most of these mass shooters are white males—in an unsigned editorial, with a link to a Slate piece about “terrorists” from the Carolinas.

Even as politicians and those in Congress pump up public fears at the supposed threat of refugees fleeing Syria, every day in America people — mostly white men — are walking into movie theaters, restaurants, churches, grade schools and health care centers armed to the teeth, determined to take as many people out as they can.

This is, of course, not true. See Ann Coulter's prescient  San Bernardino Shooters Unknown–But It’s A Lie That Mass Shooters Are “Mostly White Men”.

When two Pakistanis committed mass murder of unarmed Americans in San Bernardino, Fox News published a list of the The 30 Deadliest Mass Shootings in U.S.. [December 3, 2015]

Fox News didn’t say anything about the race or immigration status of “thirty deadliest”, so I will.

12 out of the thirty deadliest are not white males. They’re either immigrants or minorities (Ethiopian immigrant mass murderer Gian Luigi Ferri is kind of special case.) Links and pictures are added by me.

The rest of the "Thirty Deadliest" are, in fact, white males, as far as I could determine, but this level of minority mass murder is wildly disproportionate to the population, in sharp contrast the MSM belief that such people are all or mostly white males.
