A shooting doesn't need to include political motive or the distinction of terrorism to be considered a mass shooting. Most mass shooters are black.

    You're correct, here. Terrorism is a well defined term.
    He's probably associating gang shootings into mass shootings, that might be technically correct but it is not what we are talking about. Drug and gang related violence tends to be targeted, to other gang members (although innocents get caught up in it) vs just randomly shooting at people

    So mass shootings only piss us off when 1) they are politically motivated, and 2) more specifically, when they are carried out by people who share differing ideologies than us, i.e. the El Paso shooting, but not the Dayton shooting.

    So, mass shootings really aren't what's at issue here, its mass shootings which are perpetrated by a right winger, which account for probably 1% of all mass shootings. Just like we don't care about the 99.9% of blacks murdered, only the 0.1% who were shot by police.
