Van Jones: ‘White Christian men commit most mass shootings, so why not racially profile them?’

Speaking on CNN this Monday, commentator and political activist Van Jones addressed presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump’s most recent call for “racial profiling” of Muslim Americans, referring to data that shows mass shootings are predominantly carried out by mostly white men who happen to be Christian.

“I just think it’s really interesting that we’re talking about racially profiling in the context of mass shootings,” Jones said. “The vast majority of the people who are doing the mass shootings in America aren’t Muslims at all.”

“Young white men…” CNN host Brooke Baldwin interjected.

“You are seven times more likely to be killed by a right wing extremist — a racist or an anti-government nutjob — seven times more likely than a Muslim,” Jones continued.

“If I came on TV and said let’s start racially profiling white men, let’s start racially profiling young, white men who are loners with bowl haircuts, people would think, ‘Wow, that’s a pretty unfortunate conclusion for you to come to.’ If a Christian shoots somebody, we don’t say a Christian shot them. But if a Muslim shoots somebody, we say a Muslim shot them. I think that’s starting to muddy the waters.”

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    And once again, this year, the Lakatos Award in Philosophy of Science has been awarded to two native English speakers who have studied in English speaking institutions and have always been affiliated to English speaking universities – namely, Gordon Belot and David Malament. The fact that, in its whole history (i.e., the past 29 years), the Lakatos Award was given only ONCE to a non-native English speaking professor affiliated to a non-English speaking institution (2011, prof. Wolfgang Spohn, University of Konstanz), is not a problem, I suppose. Perhaps it is only “normal” that people coming for an AngloAmerican philosophical culture are just “better” than all the other philosophers in the rest of the world – so that, even the philosophy books written and published (even in English!) by non-AngloAmerican(ized) philosophers do not even deserve to read.
