This may shock you, but most mass shooters are not white.
The American Left, including the Catholic political Left, hold onto certain narratives as if their lives depended on it. They hold on so tightly their knuckles—if you’ll pardon the expression—turn white. Hardly any narrative seems so important to them right now as “most mass shooters are white.”
After the mass shooting in Las Vegas in October 2017, Newsweek said, “it wasn’t a surprise that it was committed by a white male.” The writer explained, “statistics show that since 1982, the majority of mass shootings—54 percent—were committed by white men.”
In August 2019, Patrick Crusius killed 20 people in a mass shooting in El Paso. Not long after, Connor Betts killed nine people, including his sister, outside a bar in Dayton, Ohio. Sky News reported, “Their names now join a roll call of mostly white men attached to the atrocities.”
