UT Austin professor an idiot

Robert Jensen, a journalism professor at the University of Texas at Austin, says mass shootings are committed by white men feeling "race-based alienation"...AND TRIES TO TIE THAT TO THE TEA PARTY MOVEMENT.
I've got news for this moron:
Two of the recent mass shootings were committed NOT by white men but by Asian men...Seung-Hui Cho at Virginia Tech and One Goh at Oikos University. That's a big percentage of such incidents.
Many of the others were committed by kids who don't/didn't have enough life experience to know what race-based alienation is.
And another significant percentage was committed by nut cases...Patrick Purdy at Stockton, John Hinckley Jr, the Reagan shooter, Jared Loughner at Tucson, James Holmes at Aurora and Adam Lanza at Newtown.
This idiot professor should have his teaching credential AND his PhD revoked.

It sounds like a very thin study
done by a JRN professor I never heard of.
"Two of the recent mass shootings were committed NOT by white men but by Asian men...That's a big percentage of such incidents"
No it's not. According to the FBI, "Approx. 55% of these crimes are caused by males that are deemed “crazy” and are (were) medicated" AND over 60% of hate crime murders are committed by white males. TWO is not a "big percentage". And if you believe that young kids don't know what "race-based alienation" or bullying is; you're sadly out of touch.
So I'm not taking as Gospel any study done by some Texas Professor. I think it's been pretty well shown that the majority of mass shootings are committed by mentally ill people with (far too) easy access to guns. That's the issue.

I said RECENT mass shootings
and two is a VERY large percentage of those.

I didn't say anything about bullying...and neither did the idiot professor.
It's amazing how you always try to change the narrative so you can be "right."
And I even dispute the dipsh*t professor's term of race-based alienation when applied to white men. Only in the two incidents perpetrated by Asians could race even be considered a factor. The remainder were mainly white on white.

And Asian grade-school kids
were a threat to Purdy's "male-ness" or his "white-ness?" You're stark raving nuts, pal. Besides that your reading comprehension sucks.
