Buckdancing for Dollars – Black Conservative Larry Elder

12 Oct

Here we go again! Uncle Larry Elder stepping up to defend white conservative racists with fake statistics conservatives will now and regurgitate endlessly…

So let’s head this one off at the pass right at the start – there have been 300 Mass shootings in America … Just in 2015. Not “66 since 1982” and the rights most reliable Lawn Jockey spouts in his diatribe in defense of bigotry. Over 1,000 such shootings since Sandy Hook.

And  –

Recent studies reveal that most school shooters are White males, with 97 percent being male and 79 percent White. Over the last three decades, 90 percent of high school or elementary school shootings were the result of White, often upper-middle class, perpetrators. These shootings are a direct reflection of White male privilege and the consequences that occur when groups like the NRA control influential conservative leaders.

What Uncle Larry does is take a study done my Mother Jones and try and use the numbers as they are the most advantageous to his screed. But Mother Jones got to those numbers through using some interesting caveats

    • The killings were carried out by a lone shooter. (Except in the case of the Columbine massacre and the Westside Middle School killings, both of which involved two shooters.)
    • The shootings happened during a single incident and in a public place. (Public, except in the case of a party in Crandon, Wisconsin, and another in Seattle.) Crimes primarily related to armed robbery or gang activity are not included.
    • The shooter took the lives of at least four people. An FBI crime classification report identifies an individual as a mass murderer-as opposed to a spree killer or a serial killer-if he kills four or more people in a single incident (not including himself), and typically in a single location.
    • If the shooter died or was hurt from injuries sustained during the incident, he is included in the total victim count. (But we have excluded cases in which there were three fatalities and the shooter also died, per the previous criterion.)
    • We included six so-called “spree killings”-prominent cases that fit closely with our above criteria for mass murder, but in which the killings occurred in multiple locations over a short period of time.

 

Which arguably are not valid in reducing the number of instances of mass murders. Suggesting the data limitation led to some questionable conclusions.

Anyway, in foot stomping fashion, Uncle Larry buckdances to save the murderous virginity of white racists and mass murders.

The Rachel Dolezal-ation of the Oregon Killer

Here’s the narrative: mass killers are almost always white men. The Daily Kos recently published a piece with this headline: “How come we can’t tell the truth about the White Mass Killer Problem?” It asks, “Just what the fracking hell is the matter with all these mass-murdering white people?” Certainly mass killers are almost always men. But they’re not almost always white men. Overrepresented? Perhaps. But almost always white? No.

Chris Harper Mercer walked into Oregon’s Umpqua Community College and killed nine people, wounding nine more. On a dating site, Mercer, whose father is white and mother is black, referred to himself as “mixed race.”

The Los Angeles Times implied that Mercer was white. The Times, in a sub-headline, said he had “white supremacy leanings.” The original article said: “A federal law enforcement source familiar with the investigation said, though, that authorities had obtained some of Harper-Mercer’s writings, as well as a note he left behind, suggesting that he supported white-supremacist causes and opposed organized religion.” The Times later changed the solitary law enforcement source to “two” sources, but added a line stating, “However, he identified as mixed-race on a dating website and lived with his black mother.”

As to non-white mass killers, Selwyn Duke, writing in American Thinker, cited a Mother Jones Magazine compilation of data on mass shootings from 1982 through, at the time of Duke’s writing, September 16, 2013 — after the Washington Navy Yard murders. Duke wrote:

“Of the last 20 mass killings of that period, 9 were perpetrated by non-whites.

“That would be 45 percent, which exceeds non-whites’ 37 percent share of the population.

“Of the last 30 mass killings, 11 were committed by non-whites — right at the 37 percent mark.

“And what if we go all the way back to 1982? We then have 66 mass killings in which the races of the perpetrators were known, and 22 of them, or one-third, were at the hands of non-whites. Note here that America’s demographics have been changing, with non-whites comprising only about 20 percent of the population in 1982; thus, if we consider an approximate average non-white population of 28.5 percent during the 31-year period in question, it appears that, again, mass murderers are slightly disproportionately non-white.”

This brings us back to Mercer and his race — at least as defined by some major media outlets...The rest of the garbage here…

    You obviously never took a course on Probability and Statistics. I’ve looked at the Mother Jones data (and MJ is a liberal site), and it’s absolutely valid. The difference is that it includes ALL mass shootings while you are cherry-picking only school shootings. The problem? The falsehood being addressed is that “mass shootings are a white phenomenon.” But as the MJ data shows, whites are actually UNDERREPRESENTED, by a very slim margin, among mass shooters.

    As Daniel Moynihan once said, “You’re entitled to your own opinion, but you’re not entitled to your own facts.”

      You obviously didn’t understand what you read of what I wrote, and need that remedial Statistics course.

      The shooter took the lives of at least four people.
      The killings were carried out by a lone shooter.
      The shootings occurred in a public place.
      If the shooter died or was hurt from injuries sustained during the incident, he is included in the total victim count. (But we have excluded many cases in which there were three fatalities and the shooter also died, per the above FBI criterion.)
      We included a handful of cases also known as “spree killings”
      The attack must have occurred essentially in a single incident, in a public place;
      We excluded crimes of armed robbery, gang violence, or domestic violence in a home, focusing on cases in which the motive appeared to be indiscriminate mass murder

      The problem with the Mother Jones data is too narrow a definition. Ergo, they exclude the Texas Military shooter, who was motivated by insanity wrapped in Islamic fanaticism, yet include the Columbine killers because there were more than one shooter while excluding others. They exclude gang shootings, and as such draw a diaphanous line between the Crips…And the KKK, motivated by racial fanaticism.

      Of course the 4 death line is entirely subjective, as it has more to do with how quickly medical help arrives than the goal of the shooter. Under their definition, a guy who shoots 15 people, and not himself – but 12 of those people survive…

      Is not a mass shooter.

      Bulldiddle.

    That Paula Deen ad is interesting since she’s supposedly in the middle of a divorce.

    Clarence Thomas could drop by and her Long Dong Silver.

    Carson can show Paula how to fight back against an armed attacker unless she’s in Popeye’s and a robber sticks her up then all she has to do is direct him toward the teenager behind the cash register.

    West can let Paula touch his Kid n Play fade because we know how much white folks enjoy touching black hair.

    Keyes can tell her about the travails of being both a homophobe and having a lesbian daughter.

    Sperming Herman Cain can tell Paula how much she looks like those white ‘wimmen’ he tried to touch while he was the president of the Restaurant Association.

    I don’t know what that buckdancing fool from Virginia aka E.W. Jackson could do with Paula since he’s on the DL.

      You are very bad, Roderick!

      But I think West would take her on a ride and be ridden with his motorcycle gang.
