There’s been a lot written and talked about regarding terrorism and violence in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings last year. Here are a couple of under-discussed perspectives:
- That violent injuries and deaths suffered by (mostly) white victims in affluent neighborhoods get a lot more attention than the 237 shootings that have occurred during the past year in Boston;
- That white supremacists, mostly acting alone or in small groups, are responsible for more terrorist acts and violent deaths in recent years than many of us had thought.
