Here are two interesting examples of how the New York Times covers mass murderers when they aren’t dread white males.

From the New York Times news section:

The Mystery of Why a Foundering Football Player Killed a Family

A small city that bills itself as Football City U.S.A. is grappling with the shooting deaths of members of a prominent local family by Phillip Adams who, many say, had been adrift after his N.F.L. career ended.

By Jonathan Abrams, Ken Belson and John Jeter
April 9, 2021

He struggled to find work. His last-ditch chance to make an N.F.L. team fizzled. He had a child to support and little apparent direction in a life freighted with high expectations. His behavior was increasingly erratic. Then on Wednesday, for reasons no one yet knows for sure, Phillip Adams, a former N.F.L. cornerback, went to the Rock Hill, S.C., home of a prominent doctor and shot everybody he saw before fatally turning the gun on himself.

Now, the football-loving community of 65,000 that bills itself as Football City U.S.A. is struggling to contend with Adams’s suddenly violent turn and its aftermath.

Before he killed five people, including two children, and critically wounded a sixth person,

The cornerback’s six victims were all white, but who is counting?

Adams, 32, who shot and killed himself several hours after his rampage, had seemed adrift since he last played N.F.L. football almost six years ago, friends and associates said. He remained close to home, caring for his mother, Phyllis, a former high school teacher who became a paraplegic after a car accident a decade ago.

This story sounds rather like the Black Muslim ex-college football player who went crazy and murdered the white Capitol cop last week. Like I wondered then: lots of people go nuts or break down, especially black males, but is the Racial Reckoning making them more murderous?

Meanwhile, the NYT runs an article about the victims in Boulder of the Muslim immigrant terrorist. But this article refuses to even mention the shooter’s glaringly Arabic name.

‘I Know She’s Gone, but Why?’: Love and Loss at a Boulder Grocery Store

Funerals for the victims of the mass shooting in Colorado were being held this week. Teri Leiker, a beloved employee at the King Soopers store for 31 years, was among them.

By Jack Healy
April 9, 2021

BOULDER, Colo. — Teri Leiker and Clint Ponsford shared a love story that began and ended at the grocery store.

They spent more than 30 years working at the same King Soopers supermarket in Boulder, where Ms. Leiker charmed customers with her big laugh and Mr. Ponsford could spot the peaks of the Flatirons when he went outside to wrangle shopping carts. They had both competed in Colorado’s Special Olympics and helped each other get through a lot: deaths, a breakup and the challenges of navigating this world as two people with cognitive disabilities.

About a year and a half ago, their friendship turned into something deeper. They went on karaoke dates. They watched Disney movies that Ms. Leiker adored. On workdays, they would get up at 3:30 a.m. in Ms. Leiker’s condo to make coffee, trade kisses and watch reruns of “Murder, She Wrote” before Mr. Ponsford left for the early shift.

And on March 22, they were both at work when it was all blasted apart.

For a few fleeting days, the country’s horrified gaze was fixed on Boulder after Ms. Leiker, 51, and nine other people at the King Soopers were killed by a 21-year-old gunman whose motives remain a mystery.

But that’s it: the entire article doesn’t mention the identity of the shooter.

Say his name: Ahmad Al Alawi Alissa.

That reminds me: I run iSteve fundraisers in April, August, and December.

Me and William Mulholland’s aqueduct (defunct)

Large or small, I find each donation to be a personal message of encouragement to keep doing what I’m doing. I more or less figured out the basic logic of the 21st Century, which hasn’t made me popular, but with your support I can keep on keeping on pointing out how the world works.

Here are eight ways for you to contribute:

First: You can use Paypal (non-tax deductible) by going to the page on my old blog here. Paypal accepts most credit cards. Contributions can be either one-time only, monthly, or annual. (Monthly is nice.)

Second: You can mail a non-tax deductible donation to:

Steve Sailer
P.O Box 4142
Valley Village, CA 91617

Third: You can make a tax deductible contribution via VDARE by clicking here.

Please don’t forget to click my name at the VDARE site so the money goes to me: first, click on “Earmark your donation,” then click on “Steve Sailer:”

VDARE has been kiboshed from use of Paypal for being, I dunno, EVIL. But you can give via credit cards, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, check, money order, or stock.

Note: the VDARE site goes up and down on its own schedule, so if this link stops working, please let me know.

Fourth: Most banks now allow fee-free money transfers via Zelle.

If you have a Wells Fargo bank account, you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Wells Fargo SurePay/Zelle. Just tell WF SurePay/Zelle to send the money to my ancient AOL email address steveslrAT aol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). (Non-tax deductible.) Please note, there is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is good for large contributions.

Fifth: if you have a Chase bank account (or even other bank accounts), you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Chase QuickPay/Zelle (FAQ). Just tell Chase QuickPay/Zelle to send the money to my ancient AOL email address (steveslrATaol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). If Chase asks for the name on my account, it’s StevenSailer with an n at the end of Steven. (Non-tax deductible.) There is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is also good for large contributions.

Zelle might work with other banks too. Here’s a Zelle link for CitiBank. And Bank of America.

Zelle is really a good system: easy to use and the fees are nonexistent, unlike, say, Paypal.

Sixth: send money via the Paypal-like Google Wallet to my Gmail address (that’s isteveslrATgmail .com — replace the AT with a @). (Non-tax deductible.)

Seventh: You can use Bitcoin using Coinbase. Coinbase payments are not tax deductible. Below are links to two Coinbase pages of mine. This first is if you want to enter a U.S. dollar-denominated amount to pay me.

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in U.S. Dollars)

This second is if you want to enter a Bitcoin-denominated amount. (Remember one Bitcoin is currently worth many U.S. dollars.)

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in Bitcoins)

Eighth: At one reader’s request, I recently added Square as an 8th fundraising medium, although I’m vague on how it works. If you want to use Square, send me an email telling me how much to send you an invoice for. Or, if you know an easier way for us to use Square, please let me know.

Thanks.

    I hate to simp for the NYT but for a long time now there’s been a significant number of people who believe that mass murderers shouldn’t get too much press coverage because this could incentivize people mass murdering in order to become famous, or at least it could give them more fame than the perpetrator of a heinous act deserves. Certainly this has not always been a closely-followed rule (tbh I’m not sure how much of a consideration it’s ever been by writers and editors) but it’s certainly a laudable goal. The killer should not become more famous than his victims. As you enter old age, you seem to become more and more petty and childishly sarcastic, Mr Sailer. It’s not a great look, bro.

    For this, Trump was tried in the Senate for inciting insurrection.

    Years of anti-white propaganda by the socialist Democrats doesn’t incite anything.

    The default belief should be that Adams, guided by the Left, killed Dr Lesslie and family for being popular, successful, but, mainly, for being white.

    The light bulb should be flipping on for the masses.

    The Democrats never face consequences for what they do.

    China certainly went mad for a while in the last century, although their leadership today seems much more sane. This can be viewed as an encouraging sign for us. On the other hand, China’s insanity and violence was almost entirely intra-Han. The prognosis for us is much grimmer because of the inter-ethnic nature of the conflict. There is no outcome that doesn’t involve unimaginable suffering. The only question is who will suffer more?

  22. It’s dismaying but for a writer grimly entertaining when you recognize the fill-in-the-blanks template the media has ready to pull out for these stories — even on radio, for example, you know you’re going to get church bells and a few uplifting words intoned from the pastor. Then some woman saying through tears that it all just makes no sense. (When very often sadly it all makes perfect sense)

    Of course if Adams was not a former sportsball player — in a major media market no less — you’d have heard zilch about this massacre, much like the Delaware cemetery shooting

  29. Here are two interesting examples of how the New York Times covers mass murderers when they aren’t dread white males.”

    What’s interesting is how White Americans react to media promotion of their own murder.

    One thing that’s a standout is how ‘mericans get really upset about “THE HOLOCAUST” but are subdued to disinterested about their own impending real genocide.

  30. Is it really a mystery? Repeated head trauma and drugs. My guess is that he dealt with both of those from HS through his NFL career. Likely most ex-football players need to be placed in asylums for their later years. Too bad all those were closed down.

    A good alternative is to shut down the NFL to prevent this sort of stuff from happening. Too many big, aggressive guys are tempted by the money to destroy their brains for a few years for our entertainment.

    Adams earned $3.6 million during his career and, at one point, wanted to invest in a smoothie shop. Casterline, who said he thought of Adams as a son, told his client it was a mistake because many retail businesses fail.

    Adams fulfills another stereotype of the pro athlete who squanders his earnings, at least he didn’t go full stereotype and invest in a car wash. I wonder how many friends and relatives sucked money out of him and then disappeared when he ran out of it. It sounds possible the motive is that the doctor had been treating him and cut off his prescription for painkillers. They are going to check his brain for CTE. The effort to spin this into more bad news for the NFL will be what takes over the narrative.

    ‘Absolutely Shocked’: Sylmar Teen Accepted To 5 Ivy League Schools And Stanford

    SYLMAR (CBSLA) — At first, it was Stanford. Then, on Tuesday, Itzel Luna found out she had been accepted to not one, not two, but five Ivy League Universities — Harvard, Brown, Princeton, the University of Pennsylvania and Columbia.

    “I was just absolutely shocked,” Luna, a senior at Daniel Pearlman [sic] Magnet High School, said. “All I could do was just keep checking, because I didn’t even know, like I couldn’t process it.”

    Luna, whose family is from Mexico, will be a first generation college student, though she’s not quite sure where she wants to spend the next four years.

    “I have no idea,” she said.

    But she knows she wants to major in communications and political science. During her sophomore year, she covered the 2019 Los Angeles Unified School District teachers’ strike for the student newspaper.

    The article got the school name wrong. She is a student at Daniel Pearl Magnet High School (https://www.pearlmagnet.org/) in the LAUSD (yes, named after that Daniel Pearl, who was beheaded by jihadis in Pakistan).

    Meanwhile as Luna is feted by Stanford and Ivy League schools there are thousands of NE Asian-American kids with straight A’s and SAT test scores hundreds of points higher who are anxiously waiting and hoping to get into Cal State-Fullerton or Cal State-Northridge.

  42. This will keep happening and nobody will care. The “imagine if the races were reversed” types will keep hammering that mundane point with absolutely zero results. The corporate media will keep burying stories of antiwhite terrorism and making excuses for the murderers while elevating all white crime to around-the-clock national stories. As it currently stands, who will actually stop them?

    There’s a huge aversion to IRL action on the right because they (rightly) believe that not only will they be subject to violence at the hands of neoliberal jackboots like antifa, but the police will arrest them for fighting back. But it doesn’t have to just be marches and rallies. Read your Rules for Radicals. Even if there’s a ton of working from home, picketing every major media and tech company is a viable option. Plastering the faces of whites murdered by savages on every square inch of their buildings. Literally blocking the entrance and preventing employees from getting in until they acknowledge their role in white genocide. Courthouses, too; you dont need to go inside but stay outside of courthouses during trials of antiwhite terrorists. The biggest problem is that there is no money to bail people out when they are inevitably railroaded because the right establishment is made up of cowards and traitors and all means of crowdfunding are shut down (PayPal and gofundme have offices too!)

    Or we could always go the tried and true route of sustained race riots. It seemed to work for black people last year.

  44. @Pop Warner

    And an addendum to the “if the races were reversed” types: if you know the reaction if the races are reversed, why not use that reaction for black-on-white killings? Why not show all the outrage and vitriol and fury you would expect in a reversed situation? You’re not the bigger man for sitting there and taking it, you’re a doormat. Regardless of how histrionic the BLM lovers are, they have a playbook for their prized killings. They have set the standard of righteous fury as a justified response to a certain crime. Why not emulate that and stage the same protests you would expect from them? Show that same outrage instead of the usual detachment and fear of standing up for whites. Don’t bother asking what would happen if the races were reversed, do what they would do if the races were reversed. At this point hypocrisy is meaningless to the leftist mind because they legitimately believe that operating on two sets of rules is justified, since after all they believe whites already operate on different (better) rules than nonwhites. The hypocrisy route is a dead end because nobody gives a shit about being seen as a hypocrite

  45. From the new British report on race that has The Guardian declaring war:

    Black Caribbean children perform worse in British schools than those of any other group. “For years,” Mr. Sewell says, “it has been said that this is explained in terms of teachers’ racism.” Yet black African students—“same age, same demographic, same classroom”—had academic achievement rates higher than those of whites. In fact, he says, all ethnic groups other than Caribbean blacks perform better than white British students, with the exception of Pakistanis, who are on par with whites.

    [MORE]

    Mr. Sewell says that you can’t understand ethnic differences in outcome—particularly in education and crime—without focusing on what he calls “family strain,” the effect of single-parent families. “This is the first time we’ve ever had a race report,” he says, “that looks at the family and links disparities to the family.” Race activists, he explains, “just take all questions about single-parent families off the table.”

    The Jewish controlled media always paints non-white mass shooters/killers of whites as sympathetic figures and victims of white malfeasance during their lives. They take a totally different tenor in the rare cases when whites commit mass shootings or attempted mass shootings of non-whites and Jews. Then, the white shooter is shown zero tolerance and his act is an indictment of Donald Trump, Rush Limbaugh, the Confederate flag, the Republican party, Western Civilization, the second amendment, the NRA, the entire white race and now roads.

    The subtext of all Jewish media outlet reporting is that white people always have it coming while the black and non-white racial hatred behind the attack is understandable.

  47. Lies of omission are a big part, maybe the most important part, of the success of propaganda. It’s hard to notice something that isn’t there. It also takes a step of reasoning to compare and contrast the cases not shown to the cases shown, the names not spoken to the names spoken.
    Noticing unmentioned facts, thinking through cases, all take IQ. The average IQ of white people may be higher than blacks, and high enough to accomplish the industrial revolution, but it is not high enough to out-think propaganda. Humanity is a lot smarter than our ape ancestors, but collectively we are not smart enough to vote.

    The latest media excuse is his CTE or football concussion made him do it. Before that it was he floundered didn’t have a job and couldn’t pay child support.

HR loves them as size is the easiest way to control the resistant.

    OT I have a thought that explains the sudden media interest in anti asian hate crimes . It’s not just to blame black on Asian crime on White evil mind control of the empty brains of black thugs.

    It’s to distract Asians from pursuing the college admissions discrimination against Asians lawsuits. Pay some Asians to create an anti Asian hate crime non profit, pay them very well and admissions discrimination will be forgotten.

    Nod, yes, CTE is a convenient reason for a mass shooting. From the article…”He struggled to find work.” He played six seasons in the NFL! If the NFL really cared about their players they would manage their money for them. What ? Can’t do that? He probably made more in six NFL seasons than you will make in a lifetime.

    Andrew, easy to call Steve Sailer childish and sarcastic, but the truth is he points out the flaws in the reporting by the major news sources. The MSM has an agenda, if you can’t see that maybe you should just spend your time on line at the nyt and wapo.

    Except that logic flies out the window if the shooter is a white man. Give me a break, any sincere effort to not give the shooter much notice died decades ago in favor of pushing antiwhite narratives any time a white person so much as sneezed on a Diversity American. You will NEVER see this kind of restraint practiced by the media when the shooter is white, and even better when the shooter is white and the victims aren’t. You’re delusional if you think not glamorizing the shooter is an honest intention of the media and practiced on principle, and Steve has every right to be sarcastic when pointing this out.

    Al-Esau is the true equivalent. Issa as Jesus is a lie spread by Islamophiles to make Islam seem closer to Christianity and friendlier to Christians. Muslims know it is a lie.

    Yasu (or in some dialects pronounced Yesu) is the Arabic name of Jesus in the English form of the Latin alphabet.

    Muhammad confused the characters of Jesus and Esau from the Christian Bible. The Quran’s Issa character bears some resemblance to the New Testament Jesus but also fundamental differences that totally contradict Christian belief. No Arabic Christian calls Jesus by the name of Quranic ‘prophet’ عِيسَى (‘Isa).

    Aramaic ܝܶܫܽܘܥ (Iēshūʿ)/Hebrew יֵשׁוּעַ (Iēshūa) [whence Greek Ἰησοῦς (Iēsoûs)/Latin Iēsūs] becomes in Arabic يَسُوعُ (Iasūʿ), the name of Jesus in all Arabic Christian Bibles and liturgies.

    Just check the right box and hire someone to write a credible sob story. Glad I never gave a dime to my college.

    Here’s a tip. The admissions committees never check the non school do gooder activities. So make up as much pretending to help African lay abouts dig irrigation ditches as you want. They never check. Girls who claim to be victims of White, only White rapists or brave unwed moms usually get accepted. I believe trans sexual is the current favorite applicant.

    Wouldn’t surprise me one bit if, in the not too distant future, the NYT actually suggests they do exactly that.

    I have zero doubt the writers of this article, and not just the writers, were high-fiving each other. Not for having written the article. But for what they were writing about.

    Why wouldn’t they? Who is going to stop them?

    And now we’re back to why it won’t be long before they suggest a shrine to commemorate such occasions. But, for now, the article will serve.

    3 Santa Ana High School Seniors Headed To Harvard In The Fall

    SANTA ANA (CBSLA) — Three Santa Ana High School seniors will be leaving the warmth of Southern California for the brisk winds of Cambridge, Massachusetts this fall when they embark on their next chapter as students at Harvard University.

    Senior Stephanie Gutierrez still hasn’t yet let the university know she’s accepting their offer of admission, but the 18-year-old will made her choice official in the coming days.

    “It took like an hour or two for the news to settle in,” she said. “I was in disbelief. I was like, wait, actually, let me go back and read all of it, maybe I missed a part, but, yeah, it’s starting to settle in. It’s very exciting.”

    Her classmate, Oziel Flores, said he struggled with sleep the past few days after finding out that he had been accepted not only to Harvard, but Princeton University as well.

    “I feel like the last few days have been very exciting,” he said. “And I’m pretty sure the next couple of months going into Harvard are going to be very exciting as well.”

    Both Gutierrez and Flores will be joined this fall by valedictorian Cielo Echegoyen, who was accepted after applying early decision. The teen, who does not own a personal computer, saluted the librarians who gave her snacks as she studied late into the evening.

    Issa as a Christian name seems quite old. e.g.

    Abraham Elias Issa

    Abe Issa was born in Kingston, Jamaica to Mary Brimo (died 1953), daughter of Damascus, Syria merchant Joseph Brimo, and Elias Abraham Issa (May 29, 1876 – September 1, 1969), son of Bethlehem, Palestine merchant Abraham Issa who immigrated to Kingston, Jamaica in 1894 with his son Elias. Abe’s parents Elias and Mary were married on Feb 25, 1900 and the union gave birth to four children, Bertha, Abe, Joseph, and Annie.

    The Issa family struggled to establish itself in Kingston. A small notions shop, opened at 32 Princess Street in 1894, failed and Abe’s father and grandfather were reduced to peddling goods door to door until they could open a new shop at 27 Orange Street. By 1900 they succeeded in bringing Abe’s grandmother Sara and his father’s brothers John, Antonio and Joseph to Jamaica.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abraham_Elias_Issa

    Darrell Issa

    Issa, the second of six children, was born in Cleveland, Ohio, the son of Martha (née Bielfelt) and William Issa, who sold trucks and ground valves. His father was a Lebanese American of the Maronite Catholic faith and his mother is of German and Bohemian (Czech) descent and a Latter-day Saint. In 2006, he was one of four Arab-American members of Congress.

    The family moved to the predominantly Jewish suburb of Cleveland Heights in the later years of his childhood. Many of his friends were Jewish, and Issa reportedly worked for a rabbi at one point. He became very familiar with Jewish culture.

    The shooter’s name in the El Paso mass murder (23 deaths and 23 injuries) is Patrick Wood Crusius. Does that name ring a bell? No, it doesn’t. The victims were mostly latino (whatever that means) killed by a ”white supremacist” according to Wikipedia. If so, you would have known his name!

    The main consensus on文革 is 十年浩劫 „Ten Year Great Calamity“

    In light what’s happening currently in the West, there are some more nuanced takes:

    – As vaccination that prevents future radical Left chimpouts. Settled bad blood between social classes still leftover after Chinese Civil War. Henceforth China for a long time will not have to deal with the type of divisions as India. Setting the stage for economic takeoff that inevitable drove huge wealth gaps.

    – It prevented a post-Mao swing the other way—too far pro-West/Liberal. I think you guys here would agree that it would not have been wise for China to follow Gorbachev

    – Also prevents future cults of personality

    A lot though is still in unopened archives and remains a mystery. Such as what happened with Lin Biao 林彪, who was PLA’s most accomplished general and Mao’s biggest supporter during 文革. But supposedly died on a plane crash on way to USSR.

    *As always, there is an exception:

    But, the title of the tallest jockey of all-time goes to Manute Bol formerly of the NBA. He stands 7-foot-7. He received a jockey’s license from the Indiana Horse Racing Commission to ride at Hoosier Park.

    He used this a way to raise funds and awareness of the plight of his home country of Sudan. However, I do not count Manute as a real jockey.

    He was a seventh round draft choice and he played five seasons. Maybe he got paid 3 mil. before taxes but there ain’t no way he got paid 8.

    The thing is though any guy who makes it to the NFL is a big deal. If anybody from my high school ever made it to the NFL (none did) they would be automatically by far the highest status person who ever attended my high school. Before the rampage this guy was the biggest guy in his neighborhood for sure; probably the biggest guy in his town; maybe the biggest guy in his county. This is much more like O. J. Simpson than it is like the CNN spree killing of the the week.

    It’s all such B.S.

    Dude played regularly for six seasons. I don’t know what the average NFL salary is these days, but I’m sure it’s pretty healthy.

    It’s also no secret that football careers often (normally?) end with injuries that make it impossible to continue to perform at a professional level. This happens to a lot of players in college.

    Dude had six seasons to set something aside. If he was utterly improvident, he has no one to blame but himself.

    Actually Compton has become somewhat safer as Chicanos have pushed a lot of NWA out to far-flung exurbs like Lancaster and Moreno Valley.

    And now you know why Lancaster and Moreno Valley suddenly started showing up on the crime blotters about 25 years ago.
