    The point was to get some people to recognize the problem of having repeated mass shootings in the U.S.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    'Pretend'... Rather than care less because their toys are threatened.

    How does owning toys equate to not caring about victims of terrorism and hate crimes? How are you coming to these conclusions?

    Clearly, this guy is nuts, and he just happened to choose 'black' people to vent his insane rage against.

    It could have been women or Muslims or men or anyone - it just happened to be 'blacks'.

    Just like the 'Joker' guy who killed many in that theatre and Timothy McVeigh before him - the targets were not the issue...their insanity was. The same with this guy.

    This is not about racism...this is about severe mental illness.

    But because it happened in America - and most Americans seem obsessed with racism - this particular massacre is about racism in the mass media.

    Sure, there is TONS of racism in America. But going around pointing at it and saying 'see, there it is' isn't going to stop it. It will probably have the opposite effect.
    Not talking and thinking about it so much, not looking at people with more or less melanin in their skin as a different 'race' and just getting on with life...that will stop it, imo.
    When people stop describing a man as 'a black guy in the red coat' instead of just 'a guy in the red coat' - that is when racism can end.

    .
    Hmm. But there are mentally ill, racist people all over the world.

    What could it be that makes the U.S. Different from the rest of the developed nations that allows a mass murder like this to happen multiple times per year?

    I just can't put my finger on it! What could be the differentiating factor?

    No, that's dead wrong. I mean, definitely it would be great if one day people didn't really think much about race. But if the non-white-supremacists just jump to not thinking about race that just amounts to turning a blind eye to what the white supremacists are doing to minorities. First you fix the racism, then you can stop paying attention to race, not the other way around.

    Fixing the racism requires much more thought and much more action than we've giving it, not less. Racism thrives and grows in thoughtlessness. For example, today, if a black person and a white person apply for the same job with the same resume, the white person is 2.4 times more likely to get an interview. Most of that isn't people sitting around consciously thinking "muahahah, I hate black people, so I won't interview this black guy." What causes that is a ton of people who just kind of vaguely have the idea that the black guy probably isn't as hard working or trustworthy and they don't really think through why they might feel that way. They don't do the introspection one needs to do to ferret out racist stereotypes that are tucked away in their heads, so the racism thrives.

    I have to respectfully disagree.

    Its A fact that the MOST Leftist, Liberal cities are the TOP Crime and MURDER.

    Rank City
    30 Baton Rouge, LA, 29 Youngstown, OH,
    28 San Bernardino, CA
    27 Oakland, CA
    26 Barberton, OH
    25 Poughkeepsie, NY
    24 Cincinnati, OH

    21 York, PA
    20 East Palo Alto, CA

    Left-wing extremism within Domestic groups and state-sponsored cells and individuals have
    continued their espionage activities and the planning of terrorist actions against the U.S.
    government.

    Leftist extremists were responsible for three-fourths of the officially designated acts of terrorism in America in the 1980s. From an international perspective, of the 13,858 people who died between 1988 and 1998 in attacks committed by the 10 most active terrorist groups in the world, 74 percent were killed by leftist organizations.

    Thousands upon thousands of people are murdered, tortured, mugged, stabbed, beaten, and raped in the USA by Left Wing minded criminal minds in the Hearts of the most Leftist Cities.

    RIGHT WING terrorism is not even a drop in the bucket, compared to the damage and terrorism committed in these Lefty, City Political - Literal Bloodbath Zones.

    Left-wing extremists are alive and well and have several objectives. Some of these groups want to replace the government with a Marxist-Leninist system.

    Leftist extremists also pose an espionage threat to U.S. interests. Within the past several
    years, a cell of three Americans who started spying for East Germany during the 1970s
    and a group of 12 people spying for the Cuban government have been arrested. The three
    Americans, all committed to communism, have proudly spent their lives betraying
    America’s secrets. The Cubans were ordered to collect information on U.S. military
    activities in Florida.

    Between 1988 and 1998, 13, 858 people died in attacks committed by the 10 most active
    terrorist organizations in the world. The most violent of these was the Kurdistan
    Workers’ Party (PKK), which was responsible for 3,575 deaths. When all of the deaths
    attributed to these groups are compared, leftist organizations were responsible for 10,198
    or 74 percent of all people killed by the 10 major terrorist groups during this time period
    iii
    (Omestad, et al., 1999).

    From an international perspective, leftist terrorism is alive and
    well.

    Also if i may add.

    At present, the black liberation movements in the United States are following a political
    and community-based agenda, unlike the 1970s when the agenda also included terrorist
    activities. However, the nationalist movement of the 1970s, which initially had the same
    agenda, resulted in extremists within the movement forming several terrorist groups
    including the Black Liberation Army and the Republic of New Africa. Some of the
    members of those groups are still incarcerated or living in Cuba.

    Left Wing Terrorist are hard at work, mutilating and killing little babies, just as they are ready or close to being born, they are literally tortured to death, ripped apart, their brains sucked out, they are boiled alive in agony in salty acid solutions, in horrible, screaming, silent agony.

    I. LEFTIST EXTREMISM IS ALIVE AND WELL

    TERROR NETWORK U.S.A.
    On October 20, 1981, in Nyack, N.Y., a dozen members of the Weather Underground and
    the Black Liberation Army robbed an armored Brink’s truck of $1.6 million. They killed
    a Brink’s guard and wounded two others.

    They seek to create a wall of ignorance by focusing on the fractional, marginal small crime committed by insane people called and labeled as, RIGHT Wingers. The Media never mentions these facts. Leftist agenda is a warped, self destructive mentality, that terrorizes and destroys those who disagree. While siding with the enemies of the USA.

    We own a gun and we use it only for sport. We are members of a gun club and enjoy target practicing. We have never once thought of taking another person's life with it. I have always found comments like this very disturbing and paranoid. Ask any active duty Vet and they will tell you, it looks a lot easier on TV than it is in real life.
