PsiChick: miss diminutive: I just hope they're crazy.

Not "the gubermint is poisonin' us with fluoride and imported sponges from gay-lovin' countries" crazy, more like "those buildings look structurally unsound, so I'll deliver a contained blast of nails to provide architectural support, which will count as a good deed towards getting me out of this Matrix-like virtual reality simulator" kind of crazy.

The current evidence points that way. No group claiming responsibility; no political statement issued; no real sanity to the attack points (yes, they had large concentrations of people, but so does, say, Wall Street); no prior warning via known terrorist groups...yeah, sounds like a loner, and from that we can safely conclude 'lunatic', because blowing up bombs is not actually the action of a sane person.

nytmare: Easier to find and stop a domestic terrorist than a foreign one. Unabomber notwithstanding.


O RLY? Seems like we've had a totally easy time stopping foreign terrorists except for that one time (and they were all found and stopped, just in tiny bits). Shoe bomber, panty bomber, Times Square "bomber," mailed bombs on flights, none successful, all resulting in arrests. Meanwhile, guys like The Order and the Beltway Sniper go on murder sprees lasting weeks to years. And Kaczynski is just the most "successful" of a long line of domestic mad bombers who operated undetected for years at a stretch.

Article does make sense. If perp is non white the ENTIRE race or subgroup will be suspect and villified.
If it is a white guy or guys ONLY they will be judge and nothing more.

No one is going to start harassing random 30 yr old white males in the US, call them terrorist POS, mock or even cause harm to them. Can't say the same if the perp ends up being black, brown or yellow. That entire sub group will be subjected to intense hate, prejudiced and discrimination afterward by the rest of the country.

White males are the only group left where it's still politically correct for hate mongering articles like this to be written.

If the author had written this trash about any other group his career would be over and people would be protesting Slate in the streets. Instead hate speech double standards exist and crap like this continues to be published.

The author should be ashamed and resign in disgust at what he wrote. Want to end racism? Stop pandering to double standards and start treating people the same regardless.

Yeah, but if it's a McVeigh-style racist, there will be a political backlash against survivalists, preppers and militia types, just as there was in '95. To which I say:

As I always say to those who yell about how America has a huge problem with 'Islamophobia': There are three times as many reported hate crimes against Jews every year. Why aren't you talking about America's huge anti-semitic problem?

I've had people actually telling me that this was a sign that there was no anti-semitism in America, because the number of crimes reported against Jews were higher therefore they were more likely to report those crimes to the police while crimes against Muslims were in fact much higher but unreported.

Based on absolutely no proof whatsoever, just his gut feeling.

FTFA: Because of these undeniable and pervasive double standards, the specific identity of the Boston Marathon bomber (or bombers) is not some minor detail - it will almost certainly dictate what kind of governmental, political and societal response we see in the coming weeks.

TFA Headline: Let's hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American.

That was the dumbest possible way to make a cogent point. I guess, "Let's hope the bomber is caught soon and stands trial," isn't good copy.

This is bullshiat and there is no proof whatsoever that what he's saying is true.

I know that in the Orthodox community, very often the reaction to hate crimes is just to clear the damages and move on, and only complain when there is a very serious threat.

Personally, in the last 10 years or so, I've been a victim of two racially-motivated assaults (one mild, another where I came up on top), and about a half a dozen other crimes that would qualify as hate crimes. If you were to included people just yelling insults, well i stopped counting. Never complained to the police about any of them.

I know plenty of people who have gone through similar things, and they've all shrugged it off and never reported any of them for the most part.

Sociologist says hate crimes toward Muslims have increased since Sept. 11, 2001

The number of reported crimes also shows that the numbers have stayed elevated in the years to follow. From 1992 to 2000, one anti-Muslim hate crime was reported every 15 days. From 2002 to 2009, that rate has stayed steady at one every three days.

"9/11 had had a lasting effect," Peek said. "This really is the new normal."

Another disturbing trend, she said, is that hate crimes are typically underreported, particularly among immigrant communities. Peek said some estimates put the number as high as 20 to 30 actual hate crimes occur for every one reported.

Similar info about homicide and St. Louis, the #2 murder capital in the US.


The premise of the Chicago item was that killings there followed that city's racial divides. The St. Louis map would seem to show very much the same. Race, income and educational attainment are closely aligned in neighborhoods across the city. The divide is so great, that in the "near homicides" neighborhoods (the 20 in which there were 20+ homicides over this period), the average homicide rate is estimated at 57 per 100,000 residents, while the rate in the "not near homicides" neighborhoods (the 20 that saw 0 or 1 total homicides) is estimated at 1 per 100,000 residents. There are more than two St. Louis's, but there are certainly two incredible extremes in the city. Still, the most stark numbers may be the victims. Of the 567 homicides from 2008 to 2011, for which the race of the victim is available in the SLMPD annual reports, 502 are listed as black, while 64 were white. Over that period, 89% of those killed in the city were black. In a city that's very nearly 50/50 black/white, those 64 homicides would give an annual murder rate of ~10/100,000 for white residents and ~78/100,000 black residents.

And how many of those homicides were gang members killing gang members? Because that shiat isn't going to stop unless some serious effort (and money) is put into improving the inner cities.

Gang violence is tragic, but comparing it to serial killers is comparing apples and oranges.

How does suspecting a white male as the culprit negatively affect you? Do people treat you suspiciously as you go about your daily life?


I think you're missing the point that THEY DO profile white males, and yes, if you were a white male anywhere near a crime scene in a serial killer investigation - you WILL BE profiled, taken into custody, questioned and investigated.  And the black woman next to you wouldn't.  And I'm not complaining about how that would negatively effect me, because that's just plain smart police work.

I hope it's a midget.  An angry midget, upset that he couldn't run as far or as fast on his little midget-legs, who intended the bombs to hit people square in the chest, but unfortunately calibrated the devices to his own height. There's not enough midget hate these days.

Joe Blowme: Similarly, extremists Muslims are rightly criticised for their repulsive attitudes to women and to the less observant but ultra-orthodox Jews, whose attitudes are practically indistinguishable, get a free pass. That, I think, is because Jews are seen as white, european, people-like-us with funny hatsdont blow up civilians on purpose whereas Muslims are seen as coloured, middle eastern, aliens with funny hats. blow up women and children ON purpose


Ah, that's interesting. A blood libel directed at Muslims.

In those awful episodes, a religious or ethnic minority group lacking such privilege would likely be collectively slandered and/or targeted with surveillance or profiling (or worse) if some of its individuals comprised most of the mass shooters. However, white male privilege means white men are not collectively denigrated/targeted for those shootings - even though most come at the hands of white dudes

But profiling all gun owners if perfectly fine.
