You can see the impact of Black Lives Matter since Ferguson in 8/2014 in the approximately 160% increase in the number of mass shooting incidents from 2014’s 272 mass shootings to 2021’s projected 715 mass shootings.
We had never logged a month of 60+ mass shootings prior to 2020. It happened five times last year (May-September), and now six times in 2021. November is on pace to end the streak.— The Gun Violence Archive (@GunDeaths) November 29, 2021
A “mass shooting” is defined as an incident leaving four or more wounded and/or killed. Although in the most notorious mass shootings, such as Columbine, the shooter (or at Columbine: shooters) sticks around to finish off the wounded at the cost of his own death or imprisonment, in the great majority of common mass shootings the shooter (often shooters) skedaddles before the police arrive, thus leaving wounded on the ground.
Sailer’s Law of Mass Shootings says:
If Wounded > Dead ~ Black shooter(s)
If Dead > Wounded ~ Nonblack shooter
Unfortunately, Gun Violence Archive doesn’t keep track of the race of shooters and victims in mass shootings. The NYT reported in 2016 that in 2015 almost three-fourths of the shooters and victims in mass shootings were black. I looked up the 15 mass shootings in 2020 in which at least 10 were struck by bullets. At least 13 of the 15 took place at black social events (3 funerals, 10 parties), with the other two racially ambiguous due to the newspapers’ reticence.
There was a 40% increase in mass shootings during the first BLM era from 2014 to 2016.
Then, a 12% drop during Jeff Sessions’ two years as Attorney General as he terminated some of the Obama Department of Justice’s policy initiatives that had helped contribute to the first BLM era. I also have the impression that after the July 2016 Dallas and Baton Rouge BLM Massacres of cops, and Trump’s subsequent election, liberal donors like George Soros eased off the gas pedal of encouraging black street activists in favor of a more respectable-looking strategy of funding Larry Krassner–types in district attorney elections.
Then comes the obscure turning point of 2019, when mass shootings went up 24%. My impression from looking at gun murders overall week by week was that the murders were still drifting down in the first half of 2019 and then started going back up in the second half, as if in anticipation of the tumultuous events of 2020. But I’ve never seen anybody even speculate about the causes of 2019’s unfortunate turn-around, or even document it in detail.
Then, in the second BLM era of 2020 to who knows when, mass shootings exploded 47% in 2020 over 2019 and are on pace for a 17% rise in 2021 over 2020, for a total projected rise of over 160% since the good old days before we were supposed to worship Black Lives Matter.
Mass shootings represent an almost cartoonish exaggeration of the worst of African-American culture. So this enormous increase in the worst and most stereotypical black behavior during the Great Awokening, during which Americans are supposed to flatter blacks and never criticize their behavior, is damning evidence that The Establishment’s obsession with condemning white racism is bringing out the worst in blacks.
