Florida high school shooter caught on police body cam | New York Post
What is the ethnicity of this guy? His demeanor is definitely not what you'd expect!

School shootings are down since COVID is what I'm told by a friend. She saw some talk show and some expert on the show stated that 2020 might end with the lowest number of school shooting deaths in twenty years. That's not completely surprising since if kids aren't at school then they can't be shot while at school and with all the remote learning going on it stands to reason that shooting deaths would not be happening. It seems likely that many parents will elect to keep kids at home in years to come since remote learning has worked out extremely well for some people.

For people with above average IQs homeschooling/online learning is a positive experience. For people with below average IQs it doesn't work out so well. If more and more parents with high IQ kids pull their kids out of regular school permanently, then lower quality students will stay in the system. That will not only result in less academic achievement, but also there will be more violence at schools. A tendency towards violence is highly correlated with lower IQs. This COVID situation might accelerate upward spirals for some, but will also accelerate downward spirals for others.

That's very true. HOWEVER, if you push someone with a high IQ far enough, they may become violent. Generally when smart people decide to take that route, they are likely to develop a plan and that plan is likely to be, in a word, devastating. So, although statistically speaking your statement is very accurate, it is important to consider the exceptions to the rule which should not be ignored.

FBI Was Aware of Colorado Shooter Before the Attack
Reportedly he was white to begin with, but when the media figured out that he was Middle Eastern they decided not to highlight his race.

Gun Death Rates And Race
I did a little research after watching this video and the reality of the situation is interesting. The states with the highest gun death rate per capita are also the states with the largest populations of black people. Mass shootings are relatively rare anomalies, but even in that case the "white shooter" stereotype is ridiculously exaggerated by the media. The real issue is overall gun death rates and it's very clear and undeniable what the underlying truth is there!

Andy Ngo DEBUNKS The Media's "White Mass Shooter" Myth
Whites are actually under-represented which proves that the media created a false narrative to demonize white people. That's racist!!!!

Retired Black NFL Player MURDERS White Family in South Carolina, Liberals Blame Football
This would be a huge story if some white guy did this to a black family, but turn things around and it's all excuses and cover ups!

The Truth About the Christmas Parade Killer
BLM and Antifa are a real problem. White supremacists are not a real problem. Although the media works hard to convince us that hot is cold and up is down, the reality of things always seems to come to the surface sooner or later.
