The Wonderful Diversity of Mass Murderers

It has become an act of faith for the left that mass murder is a white male thing.  It is, like individual murders, mostly a man thing, although the Chicago mass murder in the 1980s and the Santa Barbara Post Office mass murder in the 2000s are both modern reminders of something that I have found common throughout American history: women do it too.

In of all places 3/27/21 Slate is a reminder that blacks and Asians are overrepresented among mass murderers.  They is nothing uniquely or even disproportionately white about mass murder.  Indeed, whites are underrepresented. 

If only the left would stop seeing everything in racial terms, and confront that the failure to provide mental health services to those in need (sometimes with no awareness of that need).  But that require admitting that all those good-hearted efforts in the 1960s and 1970s did not work out as planned, indeed as is true for everything delusion they have.
