Nationwide, there were six mass shooting over the weekend. The smallest number in four weekends. However, the overall trend remains the same. For this weekend, we have two mass shootings that appear to be Latino perpetrators targeting Latino victims. The other four are most likely to have been Black on Black.
A large majority of all mass shootings in the USA are Black on Black. It is true that White, Asian, and Middle Eastern mass shooters seem to produce, on average, a higher number of fatalities than the average Black mass shooter. However, even when we only look at mass shooting with the highest fatality counts, we are finding that a majority of the suspects are Black.
Black on Black mass shootings seem to get the least media coverage. In many cases the local media never mentions who the victims or the suspect even is.
