You aren’t hearing much about this in the media, but Anthony Ferrill, the Molson Coors shooter, was black. Did he commit these killings because he was black? Of course not. However, as I demonstrated on my blog months ago (Everything Progressives Say About Mass Shootings is Wrong…and Racist), the effort to paint the problem of mass shootings as a “white male” phenomenon, part of the project to demonize that demographic, crashes on the rocks of the reality that white males are not statistically overrepresented in mass shootings. Killings are not caused by race. They have in back of them some motive, motives that may derive from ideologies (such as Islam) or from anger and resentment.
If we can stop the racist demonization of white men that would be nice. However, the project to keep the demonization going is intense. I had a Facebook post taken down for merely observing that the “white privilege” rhetoric is really just cover for the old “white devil” demagoguery.
