Wildly unreasonable, illogical, or inappropriate.
I think there is one very significant thing that can be said about the complete lack of common sense, logic and critical thinking across the United States since the recent Supreme Court ruling that toss Roe v Web and that very significant thing is absurdity abounds across the United States of America.
In this episode we’ll talk about the absurdity of picking facts to support your bigoted and poisonous anti-white bias while ignoring facts that can prove your bias false.
There have been some recent mass shootings that have caused some people to completely loose their objectivity, flush their intelligence down the toilet and dive straight into the absurdities of tunnel visioned emotional argumentation. As an example of this phenomenon we need not look any further than the arguments that racially pigeonhole white males as being prone to mass murderer.
Gregory Humphrey of Caffeinated Politics tells us in a recent post that “too many white males in the nation… become agitated and even outraged when it is pointed out that they are the leading cause of mass shootings in our nation.” Please understand that Humphrey is unequivocally stating that white males are the “cause” of mass shootings in the USA, not just perpetrators, but the “cause”! In my opinion, that’s a purely emotional correlation equals causation argument and absolute garbage. The honest related question becomes, was what Humphrey wrote a signature significant0 statement or was it a Freudian Slip. Humphrey does goes on to help enforce the opinion that it’s signature significance by writing “Why are there so many white men who when confronted with the rigors of life resort to violence? Why are so many of the group unable to cope with their emotions and find avenues for productive and healthy living? How did we raise in this nation such a group of misfits?” Did you notice a trend of anti-white man in Humphrey’s statements? Personally based on these statements and previous statements made by Humphrey, I think his correlation equals causation “cause” statement above was signature significant representing a root bigotry and not a Freudian Slip. Humphrey included this graphic to support his thesis…
You might think I’m picking on Humphrey but I’m really not, sure he wrote a completely ridiculous signature significant statement but what I’m seeing is not just him, it’s been an ongoing anti-white propaganda pattern since before the Presidential election in 2008 and it’s getting worse, much worse. I see Humphrey as simply another ideological victim that’s been basically brainwashed by constant anti-white man propaganda. Humphrey’s apparent thinking is really not an isolated way of thinking in today’s society, it’s becoming expected thinking of the “woke” crowd. Here are a few examples that show the same politically correct underlying anti-white mantra, I’m sure you can find plenty more if you look; Jilie CiCaro of Deadspin tweeted “Extremely tired of people’s lives depending on whether a white man with an AR-15 is having a bad day” or how about “It’s always an angry white man. Always” wrote by Hemal Jhaveri of USA Today both statements were just after a mass shooting in Colorado, CNN used pure click bait to title an article “There’s nothing more frightening in America today than an angry White man”, or this little gem from The Journal “Why we need to talk about white male violence”, “…if the white-man tree is consistently producing rotten apples, we have to consider that there are some problems at the roots“, and how about the title of this article “The Normalization of White Male Violence”. The basic mantra is that white men are, you know, white supremacist, entitled, conservative, marinated in gun culture are ignorant and violent rubes and since most mass shooters are white, that fact directly implies in the minds of stupid people that white males must be particularly likely to commit mass shootings. It sure sounds to me like these people think that being white and a man must be the root “cause” for mass shootings. Sure this nonsense is an obvious statistical fallacy but it does support the faux narrative that people should be afraid of white males thus stabbing the knife in the back of civility and promoting racial division.
Now let’s have a little bit of statistical fun and share some statistical propaganda “crack” to have with your morning grits.
FACT I: The fact that the largest segment of mass shooters is white really shouldn’t come as a big surprise statistically because white people are overwhelmingly the largest segment of the population and that’s straight from usafacts.org…
FACT II: The fact that the largest segment of the population stringently against gun control is white men shouldn’t be a surprise again because white people are overwhelmingly the largest segment of the population.
Based on the two graphics above we can come up with some statistical facts:
- There were 129 mass shootings evaluated by the race of the shooter.
- The percentages of the two largest segments of shooters is White = 52.7% and Black = 16.3%
- The percentage of the two largest segments of the USA population are Whites = 76% and Blacks = 13.5%.
Now we can derive some statistical facts from that data:
- The statistical comparisons of the population percentage of whites vs the shooter percentage of whites is quite large at 23.3% and the statistical comparison shows that the percentage of white shooters is well below the population percentage of whites.
- The statistical comparisons of the population percentage of blacks vs the shooter percentage of blacks is low at 7% and the statistical comparison shows that the percentage of black shooters is actually above the population percentage of blacks.
- There is a significant 30.3% difference between the 23.3% below population percentage of whites and the 7% above population percentage of blacks.
Let’s extrapolate the graphics statistics a bit further.
There are an estimated 332.4 million people in the USA and based on the second graphic above 76% of them are white (252.6 million) and the 68 white mass shooters identified in the graphic above represents 0.00002692% of the white population; furthermore, 13.5% (44.9 million) of the population is black and the 21 black mass shooters identified in the graphic above represents 0.00004677% of the black population. Another way of putting this is, based on those purely race based statistics, there is a 1 in 3.7 million chance that a white man will become a mass shooter and a 1 in 2.1 million chance that a black man will become a mass shooter, that’s a difference of 1.6 million which represents a significant increase in the chances that a black man becomes a mass shooter over a white man.
That’s a pure race based analysis and shouldn’t be taken as a method of predicting the future but it does paint a statistical picture of the past.
SIDE NOTE: If you were to include the percentages of white vs black violent offenders in non-mass murder related criminal shootings, that 30.3% difference mentioned above would likely increase some because the number of black violent offenders is typically larger than the percentage of white violent offenders. Look up the gun crime related statistics for yourself at the FBI’s Crime Data Explorer.
So based on the statistical data presented above we can come up with a conclusion that black men seem to be more violent as a percentage of their own race than white men as a percentage of their own race. This is a similar kind of statistical analysis that 21st century social justice activists use to try and show that black people are more likely to be shot by police and they use that statistical conclusion as “proof” of systemic racism in the USA. So if they can use this kind of statistical analysis as “proof” of systemic racism in the USA then it’s fair for me to use it to show that black people are more violent than white people.
Is the conclusion of this statistical analysis what I actually believe, no it’s not because “I” absolutely refuse to make judgements based on race, quite frankly I don’t give a damn what someone’s race is, the content of their character is what’s important to me.
At the root of the anti-white absurdity is the 21st century’s politically correct notion that the white race is inherently evil and should be publicly scorn at every turn and that everyone should be judged based on the color of their skin and NOT the content of their character which is a complete bastardization of Martin Luther King Jr’s public views.
Humphrey asked, “Why are so many of the group unable to cope with their emotions and find avenues for productive and healthy living?” My answer to that question is that we’re literally talking about 0.00002692% of the white population that’s “unable to cope with their emotions and find avenues for productive and healthy living” and chosen to engage in violent mass shootings. Focus on the real problems related to that tiny percentage of the population that can’t cope instead of punishing the rest of the responsible gun owning population by intentionally infringing on their 2nd Amendment rights.
