For instance, in the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting this became the talk of the internet:
We need not focus on the fact that the author is a D-list actor with no life experience outside the world make believe to recognize the raw bigotry and, dare I say, self-hatred involved in this tweet.

Huffington Post. Powerful Take on Whiteness and Mass Shootings.

CNN. How America has silently accepted the rage of white men.

I don’t recognize the photo’s, nor the “featured shooters in 2013” - which I assume are the people in the photos.
Somebody post the article on Drudge about the prostitute. Paddock was a 911 truther. Not political, eh?
Yes, white liberal men, starting with themlike of Andrew Jackson on the Indians.
