Race of US Mass Shooters 1982-2013 or Fun With Numbers!
Sep 18, 2013

Using numbers on demographics from Wikipedia and shooting statistics from Mother Jones (of all places), I've come up with these interesting numbers about Mass Murderers in the United States.

Whites are 72.4% of the population, as a demographic they are 66% of the Mass Murderers since 1982.

Blacks are 12.6% of the population, as a demographic they are 16% of the Mass Murderers since 1982.

Asians are 4.8% of the population, as a demographic they are 9% of the Mass Murderers since 1982.

Hispanics are 16.4% of the population, as a demographic they are 6% of the Mass Murderers since 1982.

I'm not sure what to make of these numbers, in sheer numbers, white folks kill a lot of people. Then again there are a lot of white folks over all. It sort of like when liberals tell you that there are more white people on foodstamps, but don't take into account the difference in total population. If you read the Mother Jones article, being the leftist they are, leave out total population numbers.

It would seem that Asian folks go postal the most often by capita.

While Hispanics either are the least nuts by capita. Or just consistantly kill with lower body counts.

What We Do and Don't Know About the Washington Navy Yard Mass Shooting

This is from the Mother Jones article, pure crap and dishonest reporting.

"UPDATE 12, September 16, 2013 9:04 p.m. EDT: Does the shooter's race tell us anything about the Navy Yard attack, as some commenters have implied? Not if you look at the data. As MoJo's Lauren Williams writes: "16 percent of the 67 mass shootings that have occurred since 1982 were committed by black shooters, including the alleged Navy Yard shooter, while 66 percent were committed by whites."
