A lib I know is mouthing off about how whites commit the most mass killings/terrorist attacks. Any definitive numbers on this?

well, you'd have to adjust for population, given that muslims are something like 0.6% of the US.

https://www.statista.com/statistics/476456/mass-shootings-in-the-us-by-shooter-s-race/

The chart covers 1982 - 2018, so for an average racial breakdown of the US in the period, I will use the 2000 census, which has the US at:

White: 75.2%

Black: 12%

Hispanic: 12.5%

Asian: 3.8%

(Citation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historical_racial_and_ethnic_demographics_of_the_United_States)

According to that chart linked to up top the following is the % of mass shootings by each race:

White: 54%

Black: 16%

Hispanic: 9%

Asian: 8%

And here's a ratio of the percentage of shootings over the percentage of the population (so 1 is the average for all races):

White: 0.71

Black: 1.33

Hispanic: 0.72%

Asian: 2.10

So, Asians are actually the most likely, per capita, to commit mass shootings -- twice as likely as the average for all race. That said, the sample size is low for Ssians.

Blacks are more likely to commit mass shootings per capita than whites -- 1.87 times more likely to commit mass shootings than whites.

Whites are less likely than the averages for all races to commit mass shootings.

Hispanics are just about as likely as whites to commit mass shootings.

Check mate on your shitlib friend.

Also -- Muslims count as White here, so, the at the very least, the Florida shooter and the Texas Army shooter skew the white numbers higher than they should be.
