There is a lot of misinformation about mass murders worldwide where some tend to claim it to be 100% men and majority white.
For some context –

Laci Green Replies to Bunty King with
but it’s a fact. almost 100% of mass murderers are men, and most are white. it’s one of the strongest patterns. should that be ignored?

This is a huge misconception about mass murder in general. If Laci Green was to say “Most Mass Shooters are White Men” that could be taken with a little more salt. The problem is she “Almost 100% of mass murderers are men and most are white” which is absolutely not true. For one let’s define what “mass murder” means.
According to Wikipedia
Mass murder is the act of murdering a number of people, typically simultaneously or over a short period of time and in close geographic proximity. The FBI defines mass murder as murdering four or more persons during an event with no “cooling-off period” between the murders.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mass_murder
Now here are some statistics about mass murders in the year for the sake of brevity. Due, to the fact mass murder is the killing of 4 or more people without pause I’ll include terror attacks.
Four Terrorist Attacks, with 99% being non-white and radical islamic terror as the motive, resulting in 100 deaths each in 2017 so far – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_terrorist_incidents_in_January_2017
That doesn’t include the hundreds of attacks this year committed by non-white Muslims:
In January 2017 alone there were 31 terrorist attacks where 99% of the terror attacks were committed by Muslims https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_terrorist_incidents_in_January_2017
As if racial tensions weren’t high enough here are the real statistics of murder demographics by victims and perpetrators.
Mass shootings happen all of the time, it’s hard to tally how many are really done by whites accurately but dig at your leisure in this database. It comes from all races, genders, creeds, it’s absolutely NOT 100% men! http://www.gunviolencearchive.org/reports/mass-shooting
