Whites perpetrated 28% of the 60 deadliest mass shootings of 2022

Total media narrative collapse

One of the enduring fantasies pushed by the American media and much of the political establishment is that “most mass shooters” are White.

The definition of a mass shooting is four or more gunshot victims.

It is true that Black mass shooters, on average, kill fewer victims than White, Asian, Middle Eastern, or even Latino mass shooters. However, Blacks commit mass shootings at a rate that easily dwarfs any other group. This has recently been confirmed by researchers at the University of Colorado. Their research confirms that the frequency of mass shootings in a state is closely tied to the Black population percentage. Latinos also commit mass shootings at a higher frequency than Whites.

We took the sixty deadliest mass shootings of 2022. All of them had three or more fatalities. The Gun Violence Archive was utilized for this project.

For one of the shootings, there is no information on the suspect. However, in all likelihood, the suspect was Latino. However, we left this one as an unknown.

Compared to 2021, Whites and Latinos perpetrated a higher percentage of the deadliest mass shootings in 2022. Blacks perpetrated a lower portion. However, the Black share is still vastly disproportionate to their population percentage. Whites are still significantly underrepresented.

In 2021, four of the worst ten mass shootings had Black suspects, and five of the worst ten mass killings (one used a car as a weapon) had Black suspects. Four of the worst ten mass shooters had a White suspect. The other two were an Arab immigrant and a Latino. In 2022, the suspects in the worst ten were six Whites, three Blacks, and one Latino. Even if you only look at the ten deadliest mass shootings, Whites are underrepresented as perpetrators compared to their population percentage, while Blacks are consistently overrepresented.

2021 & 2022 combined.
