    Every time there is a mass shooting and the shooter is identified as a "White Person", you never hear the word "terrorists" associated with them. But yet they commit acts that are "terrorist" to say the least.

    White people aren't terrorists? News flash to most people of color your are the "Original Terrorists", according to history. But when or if these very same acts are or were committed by people or persons of color, the word terrorists is used quite extensively.

    Another word not used to describe a "white terrorists" is being described as an animal. Oh no, the conversation quickly and instantly turns to "mental illness" to describe the shooter. Why is that?

    Because they are white.

    Another term you won't hear much is "Christian" terrorist.

    Although there a plenty of them.

    Its more that there is no cohesive political motive towards the crime. Terrorism is more a political method (violent method) than an actual crime. The actual crimes are murder, derstruction of property, hijacking/kidnapping etc. Terrorism is a motive.

    Most mass shooters do not have any overriding political motives, most of them just snap and take it out on society in general.

    If you ask an 'average' person who has some cognitive recognition of the world around him/her (we can exclude the couch potatoes watching reality tv or your average coed) the definition of terrorist you may get the response that it is a person or persons who wish to strike fear or death upon others for political or religious grounds.
    The Oklahoma City bombing (I know, I know, it wasn't a shooting) was designated an act of domestic terrorism and the perpetrators were white.

    Now, if the most recent shootings could be linked to a political or religious purpose, then of course you would be correct in calling them terrorists in the typical interpretation of the word.

    Because, much like yourself, the shooters are mostly on anti-depressants and anti-psychotic medication.
