|When white men commit mass murder we don't hear how their skin color, their maleness, or their social class were contributing factors to their acts. As Peggy McIntosh famously wrote in her White Privilege Checklist, we see whites as individuals whose moral state reflects their individual will. In other words, white men kill simply because they are 'sick' or 'evil.' When men of color murder, it is because they are both those things and because of factors uniquely attributable to their race.|
