From Trace:

It’s almost as if the Racial Reckoning declared after the death of George Floyd on May 25 incited a huge number of mass shooters to violence. (By the way, this is a cumulative line graph that shows the total number of mass shootings so far in the year. Please don’t read it as saying that mass shootings accelerated throughout the year and peaked in December. The bright white line is 2020 and the spectacular kink in the trajectory of 2020 is in late May. The other lines represent 2016 to 2019, but they are unlabeled. I’d guess that the second highest line is 2016.)

When you define a mass shooting as an incident in which four people were struck by bullets, whether dead or wounded, your lists are dominated not by Columbine-type mass shootings with high death to wounded counts, dead or captured white shooters who want their names to go down in infamy, but with blacks with poor marksmanship who intend to lay low at their grandma’s for a few days until the cops forget about it, but who will emerge with a legendary reputation in the ‘hood as a bad mo-fo. For example, MassShootings.info reports that of the minority of 2020 mass shooters who have been charged, 73% are black.

On the other hand, the Mother Jones mass shooters’ database requires 3 fatalities and the name of the shooter to be known, plus it excludes gang-related shootings so they miss almost all the Baltimore-style mass shootings: e.g., 2 dead & 8 wounded at block party BBQ, but nobody saw the man who opened fire cuz snitches-get-stitches. So it comes up with the more stereotypical list of mass shooters. Mother Jones brags, not without reason:

We exclude shootings stemming from more conventionally motivated crimes such as armed robbery or gang violence. (Or in which the perpetrators have not been identified.) Other news outlets and researchers have since published larger tallies that include a wide range of gun crimes in which four or more people have been either wounded or killed. While those larger datasets of multiple-victim shootings are useful for studying the broader problem of gun violence, our investigation provides an in-depth look at a distinct phenomenon—from the firearms used and mental health factors to the growing copycat problem. Tracking mass shootings is complex; we believe ours is the most useful approach for studying this specific phenomenon.

Basically, nobody cares when blacks shoot up a black block party or funeral, so Mother Jones’ list is usefully stereotypical.

On the other hand, Mother Jones hasn’t updated their list of mass shootings since February 26, 2020 when the only mass shooting in 2o2o was the black guy killing five whites he accused of racism at the Molson brewery in Milwaukee. Have there have been any mass shootings since then? Dave Chappelle says no, but nobody else appears to be interested.

    A brief review of mass media propaganda will convince anyone that the only killings which matter are those committed by white people. The others barely even exist, except to the extent that they may be blamed on white people too.

    Killings by whites who are deemed by the MSM to be left-wing don’t count either. The murder of the Proud Boy by an Antifa quickly went down the memory hole. Same for the purported security guard in Colorado who killed a friendly maker of cowboy hats who seemed to be liked by everyone. The Dayton Antifa Shooter was quickly dismissed as an apolitical mentally ill incel.

  6. There was a little-noted cartel massacre north of San Diego in September:

    There was also a bizarre quasi-domestic massacre in Alabama:

    Both incidents killed 7 people.

    Not the Cartel murders, since they killed people avoiding paying their taxes on legal pot. Not good, but maybe people will learn to not dodge taxes where it ain’t allowed by law.

    Typo, or pun?

    FBI says there is ‘no indication’ that antifa took part in U.S. Capitol riot

    Of course they do!

  9. Its not mass shooting, but obligatory firearm display of a cry for disrespect. If they were considered mass shootings, then we’d might have to judge the shooters’ little content of character . Such an event would be a full assault rifling on white lefties high opinion of themselves. That must be protected at all cost. Dead black people be damn. Then again blacks are apparently OK with it all, so who am I to care?

  10. @Reg Cæsar

    The default thinking of every one is everything the FBI says is a lie. Yes Qanon fans that means your pizzagate cornerstone for trusting the plan was a Wikileak planted psyop. For the record this is why I think they can’t let Assange free so as to possibly talk. Hey if I were holed up in a room for 12 years, I would agree to things too.

    What cop wants to be the next Derrick Chauvin, Darren Wilson or the six Baltimore cops put on trial because drug addict Freddie Gray fell down in the back of a paddy wagon? Why risk your life, fortune and freedom to stop one hoodrat from shooting another?

  12. from the firearms used

    Talk about a transparent agenda; it certainly explains why the ATF makes sure to mention the existence of “assault-type weapons” at any crime scene.

    Disarming US citizens is THE Numero Uno agenda in “Amerika.”

    “Amerika,” as envisioned in 1987 when AR-15s weren’t a super biggie.

  14. Why Did Mass Shootings Spike Upwards Spectacularly About the Time George Floyd Died?

    Because the Democrats–politicians and media–peddled their packet of minoritarian blood libel against regular old American deplorable white gentiles…. and blacks (and the Democrats Antifa street fighting arm) responded per spec.

    Very accurate or lots of rounds.

  16. Jack D says:

    So, as long as you exclude all the types of mass shootings that blacks like to do, blacks don’t like to do mass shootings.

    I sorta understand the logic – a “mass shooter” is supposed to be a deranged [preferably white] guy who shoots strangers for racist reasons or for no apparent reason, not gang members who shoot up the other gang’s funerals. In tribal terms, funeral shootings are actually a sensible act (a chance to strike your enemies while they are gathered together and perhaps more vulnerable than usual) and not the act of a crazy person.

    How does Mother Jones classify “going postal”? I was under the impression that many “going postal” type shooters (people who shoot up their workplace, often after being fired) are black.

  17. Jack D says:
    @AnotherDad

    Of course we get no analysis of this from the MSM, but apparently when others say “the police should no longer arrest black people for no good reason” , ghetto blacks hear “the police should no longer arrest black people ..”. Or else their idea of “good reason” is different than ours. You’re robbing the quickie mart, passing counterfeit bills, selling drugs, assaulting your baby momma, etc.? None of these are really good reasons for the police to arrest you – can’t these racists leave black people alone and just let them do what black people do?

    After a George Floyd type event, the word is quickly out on the streets that the police have responded to the political pressure by retreating to the donut shops. After a Floyd type shooting, if the cops shot ANOTHER black, then the city would REALLY burn. Blacks have highly tuned senses as to what the current level of law enforcement is. When the cops are doing stop and frisk and when it is safe to carry your piece tucked into your pants. This news means that it is open season to commit crime. Have some scores to settle? Now would be a good time.

    One can only imagine what crime would be like among blacks if the police truly withdrew completely (instead of only partially) from their communities. There would be endless settling of scores and the death toll would be enormous. I think if you asked the average young ghetto black male how many people he would like to kill in a year if he was carrying a “Get Out of Jail Free” card, quite a few would give you a non-zero number, a lot more than the current # of murders.

    Agree with that.

    But a caveat. This is the culture of blacks in the context of living as a bottom dwelling minority group in white society, and now propagandized for 50+ with awareness of being the designated “woe is me” victims in a minoritarian morality play.

    In any normal society, there is some set of norms for the society–religion, tradition, authority–to keep everyone on the same page and allow normal functioning. And if you violate those norms there are consequences–reproach, opprobrium, physical punishment up to expulsion or execution.

    If blacks were in their own society–the norm–there would be some sort of tighter social order imposed. Imagine the Black Muslims running the show. Black nations are not some free for all. They aren’t anything close to white notions of public order, but they aren’t complete anarchy.

    The problem here is blacks as sacred minority objects who really should not have to obey oppressive pale stale white norms.

    ~~

    Again the bottom line: one set of norms for a nation.

    Either minorities:
    — assimilate–completely biologically–become the majority
    or
    — accept that they are minorities and defer to the majority’s norms, traditions, culture as publicly normative
    or
    — live separately within the polity, accepting the majorities political/legal authority (e.g. the Amish)
    or
    — separate

    Minoritarianism might make some people feel good … but it’s logically/socially incoherent.

    Those of us who value traditional American (Anglo-Protestant rooted) culture, traditions, norms need to get out from under minoritarianism. It appears that may require flat out separation.

    That is not going to happen. Instead the role of Whites is a hereditary serf class of high IQ. Keep things running as in Moorish Spain as slaves. While Blacks do as they please and put Whiteys in their place.

    Backed up by a social credit system and big data.

    That is our system. It seems pretty stable.

    Is it? There have been more White deaths than births since 2015, and that demographic is rapidly aging amid increasing Chinese competition. That’s a recipe for instability and decline.

    Perhaps something Elon Musk said was misinterpreted?

    Elon Musk told his followers to ‘use Signal,’ leading to 1,100% surge in unrelated stock with similar name

    (In fact, I’m wearing an Elon U hoodie as I write. A Jungian synchronicity?)

    Haley Bonar was horrified when Elton John announced her name on the radio with a long O rather than the correct short O. One of her sidemen told her he’d have given his left arm to have Sir Elton mispronounce his name to the world.

    “Chinese competition” will not be demographic in nature. Their median age is nearly equal to ours, and only 4-5 years behind our white population’s.

    Want a statistic to chew on? Had Barack Obama given Los Angeles, Alameda, Santa Clara, San Francisco, and San Diego Counties back to Mexico, Donald Trump would have won the “national popular vote” in 2016.

    Returning the whole of California along with Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico would have given him the Electoral College in 2020 without needing Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, or Wisconsin.

    Do we really have any use for Aztlan anymore? We’d be better off without it!

    Imagine what the response would be if a white country’s government ever talked like this.

    (Actually, both the latter day Soviets and the modern Israelis have had individuals espouse broadly alt-rightish views on race, but never the official spokesman of the propaganda team.)

    > One can only imagine what crime would be like among blacks if the police truly withdrew completely (instead of only partially) from their communities.

    Sometimes the best medicine is to give people exactly what they say they want.

    So, I propose that we disband the police… in all obnoxious left-wing affluent bien-pensant suburbs, the places with all those ridiculous signs on the lawns. And then let the local underclass blacks know that their white liberal friends want to share everything they have as atonement for their sins.

    Whatever occurs next, in addition to being cathartic as all hell for those of us increasingly looked as social undesireables by that crowd, would have an immediate and positive effect on our national psychology.

    (And if someone proposes something for your kids, but notably does something different with theirs? Well then, be suspicious. Be very, very suspicious. Talk is cheap at best, but malicious at worst.)
