And just while I was in the Seattle area visiting my brother in law we heard about a shooting and the shooter was being described as a "Lone white male".

Lone white male. Can you see where the target is being placed now? Why is that tolerated?

    Waco, Relax. The media sensationalizes stories for rating and commercial revenue it is just the way it works. It is being tolerated because there ain't diddly-squat you can do about it.

    Saturday night special
    Militia
    Lone Wolf
    Military trained
    Hero
    Global Warming
    Climate Change
    War on Women
    Racist
    White privilege
    Woman's Choice
    Home arsenal
    High capacity magazine
    Birther
    Assault weapon
    Machine gun

    ALL OF THEM ARE WORDS OF MEDIA USED TO IMPACT VIEWERS.

    What the MEDIA don't say and RT (yes Russian Television) disclosed was that these shooters had one common factor. Mind altering drugs like Ritalin that were stopped when they turned 18 or a mental disorder recognized and not properly controlled. The last movie shooter should NOT have been able to buy a gun! Government systems failed yet again, imagine that.

    There was already a case where the speech of one person that led to the harm or death to another person was reason to take action against the guy in the first case of his speech. Richard Butler.

    The same concept and ruling can be applied to anyone now. The media demonizes white people and the random white person who is attacked on the street has a case.

    Where are the lawyers?

    You forgot one of the most important rolls of the media, and that is to use their spotlight for propaganda .

    For example the word "Assualt Rifle" was conjured up not so much as to sensationalize a story, but to demonize a product. An evil product that has the ability to assualt people to a degree that nobody is safe because of them.
