In previous posts, I said that white supremacism and incel are a symptom, not a cause.
Hopeless, misery, and despair drive young men into a cult where they blame their problems on others – people of color, Jews, women, feminists, Alphas, etc. – until nothing is left on the inside but hate, at which point they become violent.
Lots of people on the Left like to point out that these types of mass shootings are (predominantly) perpetrated by white men.
Some on our side (and I may have done this in the past too) will point out to those on the Left that they don’t care about shootings when they happen in the black community, like Chicago or Baltimore, because that is gang violence.
I think it is important right now to acknowledge that gang violence, white supremacist violence, and incel violence all come from the same place.
The cause is the same but the symptoms manifest themselves differently in the black community.
Hopelessness leads to gang membership. The drug addiction and violence that we see is a perverse form of fatalism. The gang provides the same sort of camaraderie and feeling of community among isolated young black men that white supremacist and incel message boards do for radicalized white men.
They grow up in downtrodden, violent, and economically depressed communities, they don’t feel like they have any chance of making a better life for themselves so they join a gang and commit crimes, figuring that they are going to die anyway, might as well “live fast and die young.”
Violence becomes a sort of recreational activity for them.
Black gang violence and lone wolf white mass shooter violence are two manifestations of the same problem, miserable, hopeless young men who see no positive future for themselves.
Again, as long as the people of influence continue to sue these shootings to push political bickering, nothing will get fixed for anyone.
