    •  Insane spree killers are almost always (0+ / 0-)

      white males. While there is more black on black gun violence, it's usually with some purpose in mind, however stupid.

      •  Upper middle class, or upper class (0+ / 0-)

        white males.  Virginia tech was the exception.

        In this case and the Aurora theater shooting both of the shooters fathers were bankers who were involved somehow in the LIBOR scandal.  Which seems weird and conspiratorial until you realize that the scandal was just that wide reaching.

        The revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

    •  See, here's where I disagree (0+ / 0-)

      I think that holds for young white men in this society as well.

      Seriously, a lot of young white men in this society are mentally, emotionall, and spiritually broken as much (if not more) than their counterparts in the POC community.

      Only difference in that respect, it seems to me, is more money on the part of young white men (in many cases) to try to substitute those lost feelings with "stuff."
