    Very clever. One person sounded racist in that exchange, and it wasn't Bill.

    You're the racist jackass that equated homogeny with white.

The U.S has no more mental illness than other countries do, we just have a lot more guns and a lot more divisivness and hatred.
    Some shooter who has some racist leanings is not the same as an actual white supremacist, like McVeigh was. These are teenagers who are reading crap online, and are mentally disturbed enough to go out and start shooting up people. They are not sane.

    And people like you and the MSM who use situations like this as a club to attack Trump and conservatives is a completely despicable political move. Even here you are dismissing the Dayton shooter as "mentally ill" but not the El Paso shooter. Why? Because the Dayton shooter was liberal and the El Paso shooter wasn't. Just grow up JimL.

    A) By taking them out of context. Context includes what was said before and after, facial expression, tone of voice, audience...
    2) By viewing them through the lens of hate

    And he's too ignorant to even know why that was racist.

    The mental condition of the Dayton shooter has already been made public, he suffered for a long time with hallucinations, hearing voices and admitted to his friend about his fear of hurting himself or others some day. He was mentally ill, and had no specific motive as far as is known for the shooting.
    The Texas shooter is just the opposite, there is no known mental illness at this point, and his motive he made clear. That you can't distinguish the difference between the two is simply because you don't want to distinguish between them.

    He clearly demonstrates sociopathic tendencies.
