    Actually, if you take the official version of "mass shootings" to mean a shooting in which 4 or more people were wounded or killed, then Blacks are the ones doing most of the mass shootings... 51% of them to be exact.
    Oh really? Then why aren't these shootings included in the 'mass shootings' totals? If they are, then show it's your 51% number. Hit me with the conspiracy theory!

      One of several similar definitions.

      A "mass shooting" is an incident involving multiple victims of firearm violence. There is no widely accepted definition of the term "mass shooting" but the FBI defines a "mass murder" as "four or more murdered during an event with no "cooling-off period" between the murders."

      Seems the sources saying most are Black on Black is right... Feel free to peruse the various incidents.

        I know what a mass shooting is defined as. Usually 4 ore more people (including perp) injured/killed from a shooting.

        The source doesn't say anything about over half the shootings are done by black people. And I'm not clicking on each archival to read names and determine that.
        But there is a stark difference with black on black mass shootings and the ones that catch media headlines.

        1. Black on black crime involves handguns
        2. Black on black crime is gang related
        3. Black on black crime doesn't target innocent people

        Maybe we should base the 'mass shootings' # on a minimum of 10 injured/killed. That would narrow the results.
