Media reports are now saying that The Colorado Mass Movie Murderer James Holmes might have a chemical imbalance or is dealing with some difficulties in his life. It’s also been reported that he doesn’t remember the event (I’ll be the first to pull the b*** s*** card on that). The Right wing movement is saying Holmes’ is a registered Democrat. Fox News (National) with it’s ongoing platform of White Privilege (not to be confused with Fox 9 News in Minnesota), is asking how a straight “A” student in neuroscience can become a mass murderer? It seems the media and a few idiot political groups are trying their best to sanitize and soften the shooting of 71 people at a movie theater, which left 12 dead (so far). If this had been a shooting by a Black male, the media coverage and “whisper campaign” would have been totally different. What a difference a race makes!

United States (IBNN NEWS/American Mass Murders /July 28, 2012)…Holmes – the White male, who in our eyes clearly and meticulously planned to go to the movie theater and act-out a deep seeded, well thought out plan to kill during the Batman movie because in his mind he was the Joker, is a product of today’s society where White males, without argument are the perpetrators some of the United States worse multiple killings sprees in history. No matter how you look at it, in America there are two different operating levels when dealing with crime, punishment and justice when it comes to a White male and a Black Male – both levels of justice are separate and unequal.
You might say, why does his race matter? Because when a criminal is not white, it matters to everyone. (Three Sonorans-Progressive and activist news in Tucson and Arizona…7/12/12)
The irony is, people of color are killed across America everyday. While America is asked to pray for the families and survivors in Colorado, 50 Black people could be shot and killed over the weekend in a city like Chicago and America remains silent.
What a difference a race makes.
From the Columbine High School massacre on April 20, 1999 to now in Aurora, Colorado – I’ve noticed that most psychotic, mentally unstable, sociopathic killers are White Men. I mean think about. Look at every school shooting in American history, all done by White males.
The Washington Post reports, “The mass murderer has become almost a stock figure in American culture, someone bent on overkill — and, so often, seemingly coming out of nowhere.”
The United States experienced 645 mass-murder events — killings with at least four victims — between 1976 and 2010, according to Northeastern University criminologist James Alan Fox. When graphed, these incidents show no obvious trend. The numbers go up and down and up again. The total body count: 2,949 – Washington Post, Colorado shootings add chapter…7/24/12/.
Blacks shoot people in result of altercation.
Whites shoot innocent people for fun.
Let’s look at the research on these killers. The research of Fox and Levin (2005) found that most mass murderers have the following characteristics; they are male (94.4 %); they are 20 to 29 years of age (43.3 %); they are White (62.9 %); they have a relationship with the victim of some kind (family 39.4 %; other 38.2 %), in Holmes’ case, the relationship would be living in the same city based on current events.
With this said, we still live in a society that fears Black men. Justified or not, Black men don’t commit mass murders – at least not yet. Does this mean Americans should walk around looking over their shoulders? Absolutely not; we should always be aware of our surroundings but don’t live our life’s in fear.
Maybe a permit to carry might be just what the doctor ordered. “Gotta love that 2nd Amendment!”
