In over half dozen different reports, this is the first

In reply to: Shooting At Black College in Texas

time I've seen it referred to as a black college.

They were early reports with little detail.

The only other reference to race I saw was in a comment after the story section where someone claimed it was because of Mexican gangs moving into the area and black gangs resenting it.

that's quite a few

I checked the local high school which was Nimitz and it's Caucasion population was 6%, the majority was Black, followed by Hispanic. Seems all involved in the shooting were black too. I don't have the demographic breakdown on the school itself, but their site seems black oriented. Interestingly, they only show Hispanic vs Non Hispanic on their own demographics. No breakdown given on other races. This however puts Hispanic jsut a bit ahead of Black, the White is 22-23%.

The point being, unlike others here have posited, saying school shootings are crazy while loners, this one can't be classified as such. Maybe crazy other race loners now?

James is just waxing nostalgic, for the "good old days" when whites had their schools and blacks had theirs.
