Why Most Mass Murderers Are Privileged White Men

Online by

In the United States, power-based interpersonal violence, including domestic and sexual violence, occurs in every community, among every demographic of people. However, there are unique manifestations of violence perpetrated by white men. While it often begins intimately–targeting a partner or family member–it may carry over into the public sphere.

Socialized entitlement to believe that the public sphere is the domain of white men is to blame.
