Why are white men never called terrorists in the US? ?

None of the white men who massacre children and innocent people with their AR’s are called terrorists. They’re just called “shooters” and “suspects”. Yet anyone who is middle eastern Or anyone who follows Islam (like Dzhokhar Tsarnaev) who commits a crime is called a terrorist.

White men with assault rifles are more likely to kill you and are way more terrifying than any muslim or illegal Mexican. Yet nobody mentions them.

    White men get blamed for EVERYTHING else. So they get a pass on this one. Can't have it all!

    Two different things. To be a terrorist they would have to be part of a militant political group. America doesn’t have any white political militant groups with an axe to grind against its government. Some Middle East people do. A white person in US is more likely to be a murderer, serial killer or mass murderer.

    why arent africans called thieves in america?

    oooo.. "white man" suspects  whats wrong with calling "black man" suspects niigger killers then assswipe?

    because both are simply wrong and so is your racially biased question with your "white man" in it. those are suspected killers not killers dimwitt whatever bullshiit you read, those people are innocent til proved guilty even if they die on the way to court.

    the investigation still goes on AFTER THE DEATHS you fucuking asssswip priicks.

    ooo.  your luvky you werent born with my parents and their brothers and sisters.

    if you didnt change that tune right quick youd really learn what suffering is let me tell you.

    and you deserve every last bit.

    but what you little foriegn biitches dont realise is ...if your white foriegn in america your just a honky.

    and all of you can forget the "living in america" crap you think your going to continue to do you think your going to convict felons without a trial publically or privately.

    you'll spend lots and lots of time in prison you try.

    Why are black men never called racist? Terrorism is an act of violence to achieve political aim. Killing people due to being mentally ill isn't terrorism

    Because terrorism is politically motivated.

    Technically, it's because we have no legal definition for domestic terrorism.  Colloquially, the term "terrorist" is used to describe anybody the right-wing doesn't like.  You're correct about white men and their mass murders, of course.  The vast majority of mass murderers in the U.S. are right-wing white males.

    terrorist attaches the description political agenda to it....so unless grounds for that can be found then an incident is not going to be tagged a terrorist unless it someway manifests a political agenda,   and then they are a terrorist regardless of orientation gender religion race or political ideology..

    Perhaps if you educated yourself on the meaning of the word "terrorist" you wouldn't remain as clueless as you currently are.

    If you don't like white men maybe you should move to Saudi Arabia.
