America has “silently accepted the rage of white men” claims a column published by CNN on Wednesday.

Naaz Modan, an editor of Muslim Girl magazine, claims that the recent mass shootings have been met with a “fatal passivity” because they have not been committed by ethnic minorities.

Mass shootings are a violent epidemic that have been met with fatal passivity for far too long. If mass shootings were perpetrated mostly by brown bodies, this would quickly be reframed and reformed as an immigration issue. If thousands died at the hands of black men, it would be used to excuse police brutality, minimize the Black Lives Matter movement and exacerbate the “raging black man” stereotype. If mass shooters identified as Muslim, it would quickly become terrorism and catalyze defense and security expenditures.

She then claims mass shootings are a “white man’s problem” which has been made worse due to an “over-affinity for guns among white men”:

Since 1982, mass shootings in the United States have been committed by white men who are often labeled “lone wolves” or “psychologically impaired.” As a result, the government that would otherwise be mobilizing its institutions to bring about reform remains a stalwart of the Second Amendment and mass shootings’ greatest ally. An over-affinity for guns among white men, dangerous against any other backdrop, gets defended as patriotism by many conservatives or even as white pride by those on the alt-right.

“Make no mistake: this is war culture that has dressed up as Uncle Sam and embedded itself into the American psyche,” Modan concludes in the piece.

However, Modan’s claims do not stand up to empirical review of the data. White Americans make up 79% of the population according to the US Census but commit only 55% of mass shootings – they are, in other words, 31% less likely to commit a mass shooting than other ethnicities.

Even though CNN maintains that the “views expressed in this commentary are solely those of the author,” those views seem to be following a common trend shown by leftist commentators.

“Paddock, like the majority of mass shooters in this country, was a white American,” claims Shaun King, a white American, in a column for The Intercept. “And that simple fact changes absolutely everything about the way this horrible moment gets discussed in the media and the national discourse: Whiteness, somehow, protects men from being labeled terrorists.”

King continues:

The privilege here is that the ultimate conclusion about shootings committed by people from commonly nonwhite groups often leads to determinations about the corrosive or destructive nature of the group itself. When an individual claiming to be Muslim commits a horrible act, many on the right will tell us Islam is the problem. For centuries, when an act of violence has been committed by an African-American, racist tropes follow — and eventually, the criminalization and dehumanization of an entire ethnic group.

“White men who resort to mass violence are consistently characterized primarily as isolated “lone wolves” — in no way connected to one another — while the most problematic aspects of being white in America are given a pass that nobody else receives,” he adds.

Another example of this ludicrous narrative comes from George Ciccariello, the professor who tweeted “All I want for Christmas is White Genocide,” last year.

“White people and men are told that they are entitled to everything,” Ciccariello tweeted.“This is what happens when they don’t get what they want.”

The massacre that took place on Sunday evening resulted in the deaths of 59 people and injured over 500 more. Since then, a large number of left-wing politicians, commentators, and celebrities have used the shooting as a reason to attack the Second Amendment.

    Wow, there’s a lot here to address, so let’s begin: Firstly, Muslims are not a race of people-a Muslim could be an Asian or as White as Shaun King is, it’s a political ideology and not a race. With that out of the way, this author has every right under the Constitution to refute people and make arguments, however my rights, which can never be taken away by anyone or body of government, know no feelings or actions. The actions of one White man is the actions of that man alone. Period. End of story. This author addresses shooters in a very racist manor whilst trying to appear objective, but fails to identify the FBI violent crime stats which show an overwhelmingly amount of crimes being committed by 13% of those who ID as Black Americans. It’s clear she knows nothing of the genocide committed by Blacks on a yearly basis: the Black abortion rate, the Back-on-Black violent crimes in our country, how about the genocide in Africa, or the first American slave trader (who just happened to be a Black-American)? Must we act like this never happened? it’s sickening and deceitful. Watch out: the Left are the NAZI’s and Communists who actively seek to disarm you so they can later, murder you in their ghettos and concentration camps.

      Liberals only talk about gun control when white people die. I like to remind the apes of BlackCrimesMatter this fact. They don’t understand and start howling and throwing handfuls of their own poop, but it’s still amusing.

    “If thousands died at the hands of black men”? They do, and it’s mostly other black men.

  • Gerry Burnie

    “If thousands died at the hands of black men, it would be used to excuse police brutality, minimize the Black Lives Matter.” …. ?! This statement alone tells us we are dealing with a racist know-nothing with one vindictive message to sell.

    Here are the facts:

    Cops killed nearly twice as many whites as blacks in 2015. According to data compiled by The Washington Post, 50 percent of the victims of fatal police shootings were white, while 26 percent were black. The majority of these victims had a gun or “were armed or otherwise threatening the officer with potentially lethal force,” according to Heather MacDonald, author War on Cops, in a speech at Hillsdale College.
    Some may argue that these statistics are evidence of racist treatment toward blacks, since whites consist of 62 percent of the population and blacks make up 13 percent of the population. But 2009 statistics from the Bureau of Justice Statistics reveal that blacks were charged with 62 percent of robberies, 57 percent of murders and 45 percent of assaults in the 75 biggest counties in the country, despite only comprising roughly 15 percent of the population in these counties.

    Only MUSLIMS & LEFTIST want to conflate islamic religion or country with RACE- a very deliberate and coordinated political strategy to pretend opposition to their totalitarian, violent ideology has commonality with CIVIL RIGHTS. To ride coat tails of those successful movements. Muslims will pretend they are “down with” POC or gays or Jews – A LIE, a very big lie. BOught by most SJW’s and D’s.

    islam is NOT A RACE- the ugly of islam comes in every skin tone- from white as Sharmouta Sarsour, and the Tsarnov Bros to the blackest African janjaweeds killing non-muslim Africans of same race…

    “Since 1982, mass shootings in the United States have been committed by white men who are… almost always liberals.”
    — Yeah, the media doesn’t like to dwell on that aspect of the profile.

    It’s cute how the lying jews can make mass shootings a “white thing” when they need to, but can simultaneously talk about a “mass shooting every day.” How does Mother Jew pull that off? Oh… you mean those other 364 mass shootings are blacks shooting each other?

    The definition the lying jew uses changes based on the lie they’re trying to sell. The FBI definition (4 deaths caused by the gunman) is used when they want to attack white people (even though statistically that isn’t even the case….) but when they want to attack guns, gun owners, and America in general the lying jew uses “some people got shot.” A far more lenient standard that includes the thousands acts of gun violence on the Planet of the Apes. Which of course the lying jew will include in their numbers, but then only exclusively talk about white shooters. Coincidentally.

    The lying jew has also been including suicides in their “gun violence” numbers for nearly 40 years now. When you hear some outrageous stats about people killed by “gun violence” 99% of the time they’re including suicides (2/3rds or more of all “gun related deaths.”) And they’re called out every single time. Yet every single time the lying jew is corrected with facts they conveniently “forget” the very next day and keep spreading the same lies. It’s almost if…
