51% mass shooters in 2019, what race?

https://summit.news/2019/08/07/2019-data-shows-51-of-mass-shooters-were-black-only-29-were-white/   

 

Greenfield then quotes Rep. Ilhan Omar, CNN’s Don Lemon and Newsweek, who have all claimed that white people are the biggest mass shooter threat and have carried out more mass shootings than any other group.

But that doesn’t appear to be the case for 2019.

“Looking at the data from the Mass Shooting Tracker, widely utilized by the media, as of this writing, of the 72 mass shooters, perpetrators in shootings that killed or wounded 4 or more people, whose race is known, 21 were white, 37 were black, 8 were Latino, and 6 were members of other groups,” writes Greenfield

“51% of mass shooters in 2019 were black, 29% were white, and 11% were Latino. Three mass shooters were Asian, two were American Indian and one was Arab.”

Many mass shootings in predominantly black areas that claimed black victims also remain unsolved, meaning the figures are if anything “vastly understated.”

The white population of the U.S. is around 61 per cent, African-Americans make up just shy of 13 per cent and Hispanics around 18 per cent.

You're a racist for bringing it up BA.

Problem with labelling people by pigmentation of the skin is anyone with a dark complexion is called 'black'

Just like you previous President who had 50% 'white' genes.

Congradulations

 

I'll be calling the company with 

A complaint.

 

Such subject matter should not

Be here...or anywhere.

 

You just have to make race an issue

Which it isnt.

 

This is a farm publication forum 

Whos corp has such holdings as

Taste of home.

Which promotes down home

Values...race is not one of them.

Have you also considered that

There are black farmers...have

You considered that...no you

When race is used by liberals to condemn conservatives it's okay, when race turns up as a fact that they don't like suddenly it's not appropriate.

"

The pattern of mass shooters whose violent rhetoric began as minors is not new. But once these kids reach that magical age of 18, no background check will detect the red flags that signal the potential for violence.

The time has come to change the way we deal with the records of troubled juveniles once they legally become adults. No longer should we simply expunge information symptomatic of violence that may be yet to come."

Canuck, have you heard of Ancestry DNA genealogy testing?  Just a vial of saliva and they can tell you what part of the world and what percentage make up your heritage.  It doesn`t need pigmentation to tell you that, I can work in the dusty peat and have a dark complexion but it doesn`t make me a better dancer or basketball player.   Smiley Happy

The question BA is why do you classify people by the colour of their skin?
