I made that my Facebook status some years back and today I felt the need to dredge it up again. I have Infoshop.org “liked” on FB so I get regular postings from them. Whoever runs the FB group saw fit to post this link: Why Most Mass Murderers are Privileged White People. And White Anarchists near ‘bout lost their minds. With comments that ranged from “quitting” Infoshop’s FB page to likening the Colorado tragedy to a conspiracy.
Because it’s easier to say the Iluminati is behind this than to acknowledge there might be something peculiar about white, privileged men and homicidal sociopathy. And I don’t know enough about mass murderers to say what exactly the link is to white men, but to have a temper tantrum when the link is pointed out is an interesting by product of the very privilege they seem to be trying to distinguish themselves from.
White people want all of privileges of white privilege and all of the perceived benefits of the marginalized.
