It's really sad, because this is how it's portrayed by the media. And then the alleged mental illness the "white person" had automatically describes sick and twisted murderers. Like when the sandy hook shooter's Aspergers was made public, so many people started suspecting A.S. patients to be homicidal for no reason.. Sorry for the long post, this just makes me wanna shake my head..
@r0dents, I'm glad you understand. A.S. is so broad, a lot of people with it are totally normal, but they get labeled allv the same, and people view them dofferently. I applaud your open-mindedness.
@r0dents, I agree in full. But I think at the same time SO many people are concerned about the gun control debate, but very few want to argue about how provide better care for mental illness. Personally, I think that could go a lot farther.
@r0dents, my friend has Aspergers and he's like the nicest kid I know!
@prose of a con, don't bother. You can't say anything about gun control being a bad idea here. Just gonna get you down voted no matter how correct or logical you are.
@r0dents, yes my best friend has it and she is the sweetest girl you will ever meet.
@r0dents, it's sad when people say that the government had something to do with the Boston marathon, and your not sure who to trust. My question is why do we have so many secrets and conspiracies in our own government? Are we not a nation?
@that random comment, @ITS ALIENS, That's so cool to hear from the both of y'all! You two are both very good friends for taking the time to get to know someone and not judging them because of their differences.
@Marvelous Metapod, thank you so much. It means a lot to hear that from such a marvelous metapod.
@GunSupporter, Oh the irony
@GunSupporter, I for one think gun control is a terrible idea. It would only stop the law abiders from getting guns.
@r0dents, I know, my brother has Aspergers and he got so much sh*t about this
@Truestorylolz, that's terrible.. I hope he's not getting any more from it, though.
@Ashael, the heck are you talking about?
@r0dents, I know! As soon as people found out that I had aspergers, they avoided me for a solid month and when I tried to talk to anyone, they are all like "stay back, don't hurt me!"
@r0dents, It's the labels people obtain when they are diagnosed with a mental illness. People have no empathy anymore. No sympathy either. That's why I've resorted to negativity and cynicism. Because no one has proved to me that people can be different and pure of nature. I've kind of lost hope.
@Salamence, I would love to show you otherwise, because I know how painful it can be to see the world through an angry heart.. People really can be miraculous, I promise.. You just have to find someone special to show you. :)
@scumbaghat, that's so silly, I mean.. It's not like you were any different of a person.. My grandmother warned my mom (who is a crisis counselor and works with kids diagnosed with A.S. daily) to be careful after she heard about this guy on the news. My mom and I were just like, "uh.. Yeah, alright. By the way, some guy who played bingo once when he was a kid punched this girl in the face, and since you like bingo, we decided to call the police. It only makes sense."
@Andy Dwyre, people have been leaking information that the government had something to do with the bombing. Also your name is awesome
@r0dents, I wish you would. I honestly wish someone could prove it to me. An angry heart is painful. It's uneasy.
@r0dents, I actually had some autistic tendencies when I was younger. They weren't t nearly as bad as those of my cousins though. Like most people with minor autistic tendencies, I have since mostly grown out of it, but some of it's still there. Like, for example: I have trouble censoring myself in public situations.com But besides that I'm a pretty normal guy. Sorry for the long post, just wanted to share...
Every mass murderer is a terrorist.
@Dyslexic Jew, depends on why they do the shooting
@Vagina muffin, I does not. If you want to kill a lot of random people, you are a sick terrorist.
@Dyslexic Jew, *it
@Dyslexic Jew, no, every mass murderer is a gamer, according to the media
@giant banana, I think that's just bullcrap. Video games do not teach us how to shoot a gun accurately or attack with knife
@Dyslexic Jew, by definition you need to kill people to make a statement, religious political or otherwise, to be considered a terrorist.
@GunSupporter, And they weren't?
@Dyslexic Jew, yea. It was a religious anti American statement. Thus, terrorists.
@GunSupporter, It was the Chechns saying f you to America and Russia
@Dyslexic Jew, sorry. My facts should be better than what they are right now. Been tied up in watching what obama is trying with the gun legislation. But, in the end it comes down to a political thing, not s random act of violence.
Anyone else think Piers Morgan is a complete douche?
Technically, those Russian bombers were white
@Fck logic, no they were Muslim. Muslim is a race. And it's brown not white. (He said stupidly)
@WilfredMott, I see what you were trying to do, but it's just not there
@Fck logic, Actually they did not come from Russia. They were Checyan, who were conquered by Russia. They hate Russians.
@WilfredMott, Muslim is not a race dumbass it's a religion
@LaxBro2121, Congratulations. You have a first grade understanding of Islam. Way to miss the joke
@WilfredMott, Muslim??? Is?? A race????????? Enlighten me, O genius one!!!!!??!? :0
@r0dents, it was a satire of idiots who confuse Islam as a race. Feel enlightened?
@WilfredMott, I'm laughing
@r0dents, that's the spirit
Right, because there is obviously no distinction between homicide and terrorism. Honestly, some people say things just to hear themselves talk.
Bitch please, its only news if it is a mental patient or terrorist.
Not now mom I need to comment before its too late!
@Tony Stark9, that misspelling is sadly appropriate.
@Tony Stark9, you are literally too stupid to insult.
@Tony Stark9, Whoops sorry man it looks like i am the one who is too stupid to insult my bad
@Tony Stark9, f**k yea
@Cokie The Clown, 'sall good
Na only Muslims. Black people kill cause you touch their fried chicken
@Bluej, that's kinda offensive.
@Miree, suckssssssss, don't read it
@Bluej, can I predict what is on the comment section for me to know what to read and not?
@Bluej, I'm black and I found this funny!
@crazzzzzyyyy, haha see! You have a sense of humor!
@Bluej, I try ;)
The country's true terrorists don't wear turbans. They wear $5,000 suits and work in Washington, and in the big banks, and run the country how they see fit.
you know Canada is nice around this time
This is absolute BS
Crazy white people can be Terrorists too; remember the guy who attacked the Sikh temple?
The Oklahoma City bombing was a white terrorist. The Boston bombing was Chechen terrorists. Terrorists are of all races and murder is different than terrorism
The two aren't mutually exclusive...
This is bullcrap don't cry because you're not white
Unless white people kill any other race, then it's a hate crime.
@Captcatholic, sad but true
Where they sue because of hot coffee and don't understand the concept of vegetables.
Well that's only if you pled insanity witch rarely happens and if you are found insane then you have spend as much time or even more time in treatment for your "insanity" then you would in jail so it's kinda a lose lose
This isn't completely true, the two guys that just bombed we're Russian, but had links to terrorism. The people who've done the shooting are loser f*cks but not linked to terrorists. I hate when people play the race card!
@Grand Master Bates, I'm not racist, I hate everyone equally.
@Grand Master Bates, *were*
@Grand Master Bates, white kid murdered his whole family and announced on oprah he found a nice job in corporate America after prison. My black cousin is 32 in prison for one armed robbery he did when he was 16. I love white ppl honestly I grew up in prep schools, but the race issue in America is still real.
@OneTimeAtBandCamp, it is definitely real, but it goes both ways man
@Grand Master Bates, They were not Russian, they were Chechen. They are a group of Muslim people in southern Russia, many of which want their independence. There have already been two wars fought to keep them from seceding. They have committed some of the most horrible terrorist attacks in Russia. They also have connections Al Qaeda. Whether or not those two guys represented them is not known.
@Haytham Kenway, I thought Chechnya was part of Russia. Although with all the corruption, sectionalism and revolutions that go on in that region, we're both probably right in some weird way.
@Captain Zaraki, I'm with you. racism is a crime and crimes are for black people
@WilfredMott, Chechnya is in Russia, but that doesn't make them Russian. They are a completely different ethnic group.
@Haytham Kenway, I guess it depends on your definition of Russian.
Techniccally speaking, the definition of a terrorist is one who causes mass terror. So those whit people are terrorist. 2. What race where the marathon bombers? White
A liberal obviously made this
@Johnny tambourine, implying being liberal is bad
I bet a terrorist made this post
They were white
No sorry that's just Texas
False we blame it on terrorists if they kill because of their religion. We would blame it on mental illness if they actually had a mental illness.
Classic America without me as president
Funny pics, where normal people come to find something funny and idiots start arguments
Just so you guys know, the country isn't saying that they have mental illnesses, the lawyers are. That way the client doesn't get a death penalty or life, and I don't ever remamber a black person being labelled as a terrorist.
That's a stupid thing to say because the terrorists claim to be terrorists. They're in a jihad. The Boston bombers had 24 videos online damning American and praising the death of infidels. They were terrorists for a whacked out belief system.
This was brought up in the case of the Scranton Strangler.
No! Killing for the purpose of "causing terror for political purposes" makes it terrorism you dolt.
@Whatssofunny, it doesn't have to be political, it just needs to be done with the intention of creating fear and instability in a group.
Bitch please, it is only news if it is a mental patient or terrorist.
I can see this is going in a bad direction
I have yet to see a black, Hispanic, or Asian terrorist... I'm pretty sure this is just some half-a**ed political picture posted by some idiot who spends all day online...
Scum bag 'Murica
Fox News everybody
I really don't like this pic
I'm pretty sure Obama said that the guns are killing people, not people killing people using guns
Fact number one of 4/24/13: Just about every part of the United States has been hit by some form of terrorist attack since 1970
The Boston bombers are white...
I hate religion, starts wars, kills people, ruins a good time all the time. God=alla simple white,black what ever peope say "god put us hear" yer god you say what dose alla mean GOD, *puts on glasses* deal with it
@flameing poop, *here * allah *people * your *does
You know you're a pretty ignorant pig race has nothing to do with mental illness and the majority of of the domestic TERRORISTS are white like the two men who set the bombs in Boston they were Chechen or also people who are considered white so maybe you should pay attention to the facts before you start saying something offensive
@Crash1996, what it's saying is that when a white person commits a mass murder, the media portrays them as mentally handicapped. All other races are treated as terrorists
This is totally wrong. I live an hour away from Baltimore and I have to say, Baltimore is a place I will never go again. There are people (mainly black) who run around the streets burning buildings and killing people. The police get trash thrown at them for no reason and the government will not let some of the restaurants give the policemen food. The mayor lets the murders get away with this madness and says it is "protest". This proves how incorrect that post was.
Ahh, some good racism/antiAmericanism from uneducated teenagers on the Internet.
What about the White Russian terrorist that got tortured and it started a big fight? Or the guy that released NSA records and was classified as a terrorist
Dear God. I live in a red stripe.
