    Yep...I guess it's somewhere between a prejudiced outlook and current typical experience.

    I think society/media has hijacked (no pun intended) the word "terrorism" and applied it to Islam-motivated crimes...whereas whites are capable of (and do) cause terror that is not always religion-motivated.

    But I'm not personally fussed by this discrimination because to suddenly hear the term "terrorism" thrown around to describe any violent act just to be PC about it would make us a bit numb to the severity of it.

    No offense intended to any readers.

    I think society probably does see it like this, but in the same aspect, the white shooters I've seen recently haven't been racially driven, or in the name of religion. (Well not that I know of)

    Also look up Paul Jennings Hill and the Wisconsin Sikh temple massacre of 2012.
