There were 506 homicides in Chicago last year with 87% of them being gunshot deaths. I believe this would qualify as mass shootings. And I'd venture a guess that scant few of the gunmen were white.

There's no might about it. My facts are 100% right. Of the top 10 most dangerous cities in America, the whitest city per it's population is St. Louis at 43% white. All of these cities are predominantly black/other minority. http://americanlivewire.com/top-10-m...-america-2013/ But you won't see that in the above article because you see, only white are prone to gun violence.

The mass shooter generally picks suburban targets-multiplex movie theaters, schools, malls, etc. Or like the DC snipers, gas stations, restaurants, anywhere where people might have their guard down. That's the media's audience, not the folks who live in high crime areas.
