School Shootings and White Denial
By Tim Wise, AlterNet
March 6, 2001

I can think of no other way to say this,
so here goes: white people need to pull
 our heads out of our collective ass.
Two more white children are dead and thirteen are injured, and another "nice" community
is scratching its blonde head, utterly perplexed at how a school shooting the likes of the one
yesterday in Santee, California could happen. After all, as the Mayor of the town said in an
interview with CNN: "We're a solid town, a good town, with good kids, a good church-going
town…an All-American town." Yeah, well maybe that's the problem.
I said this after Columbine and no one listened so I'll say it again: white people live in an
 utter state of self-delusion. We think danger is black, brown and poor, and if we can just move
 far enough away from "those people" in the cities we'll be safe. If we can just find an
 "all-American" town, life will be better, because "things like this just don't happen here."
Well bullshit on that. In case you hadn't noticed, "here" is about the only place these kinds
 of things do happen.
Oh sure, there is plenty of violence in urban communities and schools.
But mass murder; wholesale slaughter; take-a-gun-and-see-how-many-you can-kill
 kinda craziness seems made for those safe places:
 the white suburbs or rural communities.

And yet once again, we hear the FBI insist there is no "profile" of a school shooter. Come
again? White boy after white boy after white boy, with very few exceptions to that rule (and
none in the mass shooting category), decides to use their classmates for target practice,
and yet there is no profile? Imagine if all these killers had been black: would we still hesitate
 to put a racial face on the perpetrators? Doubtful.

Indeed, if any black child in America – especially in the mostly white suburbs of
 Littleton, or Santee – were to openly discuss their plans to murder fellow students, as
 happened both at Columbine and now Santana High, you can bet your ass that somebody
 would have turned them in, and the cops would have beat a path to their doorstep.

 But when whites discuss their murderous intentions, our stereotypes of what
danger looks like cause us to ignore it – they're just "talking" and won't really do
anything. How many kids have to die before we rethink that nonsense? How many
dazed and  parents, Mayors and Sheriffs do we have to listen to, describing how
confused "normal" and safe their community is, and how they just can't understand
 what went wrong?

I'll tell you what went wrong and it's not TV, rap
music, video games or a lack of prayer in school.

What went wrong is that white Americans decided to ignore dysfunction
and violence when it only affected other communities, and thereby
blinded themselves to the inevitable creeping of chaos which never
remains isolated too long. What affects the urban "ghetto" today will be
coming to a Wal-Mart near you tomorrow, and unless you address the
emptiness, pain, isolation and lack of hope felt by children of color and
the poor, then don't be shocked when the support systems aren't
there for your kids either.

What went wrong is that we allowed ourselves to be lulled into a false
 sense of security by media representations of crime and violence that
portray both as the province of those who are anything but white like us.
We ignore the warning signs, because in our minds the warning signs
don't live in our neighborhood, but across town, in that place where we
lock our car doors on the rare occasion we have to drive there. That
false sense of security – the result of racist and classist  stereotypes –
then gets people killed. And still we act amazed.

But listen up my fellow white Americans: your
children are no better, no nicer, no more moral,
no more decent than anyone else.

Dysfunction is all around you, whether
 you choose to recognize it or not.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, and Department of Health and
 Human Services, it is YOUR children, and not those of the urban ghetto,
who are most likely to use drugs.

That's right: white high school students are seven times more likely
 than blacks to have used cocaine; eight times more likely to have smoked
 crack; ten times more likely to have used LSD and seven times more likely
 to have used heroin. In fact, there are more white high school students who
have used crystal methamphetamine (the most addictive drug on the streets
 than there are black students who smoke cigarettes.

What's more, white youth ages 12-17 are more likely to sell drugs: 34% more likely,
in fact than their black counterparts. And it is white youth who are twice as likely to
binge drink, and nearly twice as likely as blacks to drive drunk.

And white males are twice as likely to bring a weapon to school as
are black males.

And yet I would bet a valued body part that there aren't 100 white people in Santee,
California, or most any other "nice" community who have ever heard a single one
 of the statistics above.

Even though they were collected by government agencies using these folks'
 tax money for the purpose.

Because the media doesn't report
 on white dysfunction .

A few years ago, U.S. News ran a story entitled: "A Shocking look
 at blacks and crime."

 Yet never have they or any other news outlet discussed the "shocking"
 whiteness of these shoot-em-ups.

Indeed, every time media commentators discuss the similarities
in these crimes they mention that the shooters were boys, they
were loners, they got picked on, but never do they seem to notice
a certain highly visible melanin deficiency. Color-blind, I guess.

White-blind is more like it, as I figure these folks would spot color mighty
damn quick were some of it to stroll into their community. Santee's whiteness
 is so taken for granted by its residents that the Mayor, in that CNN interview,
 thought nothing of saying on the one hand that the town was 82 percent white,
but on the other hand that "this is America."
Well that isn't America, and it especially isn't California, where whites
are only half of the population.

This is a town that is removed from America, and yet its Mayor thinks
 they are the normal ones – so much so that when asked about racial
 diversity, he replied that there weren't
 many of different "ethni-tis-tities." Not a word. Not even close.

I'd like to think that after this one, people would wake up. Take note. Rethink their
stereotypes of who the dangerous ones are. But deep down, I know better. The
folks hitting the snooze button on this none-too-subtle alarm are my own people,
after all, and I know their blindness like the back of my hand.

Naltrexone is a pure long-acting opioid antagonist.
 It is used in the treatment of opioid addiction to prevent relapse.
Extensive clinical trials have shown that naltrexone has very low toxicity and no euphoric effects, does not cause physical dependence and consistently blocks the effects of customary amounts of heroin and other addictive opiates 1.
If a patient taking naltrexone tries to inject or smoke heroin (or any other opiate), there will be no euphoria or relaxation 2.
Naltrexone was later combined with clonidine to improve and refine the medical approach of the detoxification 3.
Compared with standard in-patients detoxification programs, the naltrexone-clonidine combination has a number of advantages. Effectively, the withdrawal symptoms are compressed into 2 or 3 days .
Locally the with clonidine was introduced in June 1996 at Dar l-Impenn to detoxify heroin addicts.
To evaluate current treatment of heroin addiction using naltrexone and clonidine and to determine its therapeutic outcome.
1. To evaluate the treatment using naltrexone and clonidine being given at Dar l-Impenn.
2. To study the information that is being given to the patients and carers to prepare them for this treatment and after care.
3. To study patient’s characteristics and to analyze what is motivation them to seek this particular treatment.
4. To evaluate the therapeutic outcome six months after detoxification.
5. To determine the pharmacist’s role as part of the health care team in the treatment of opioid addicts using naltrexone.
6. To propose a protocol for the dispensing of naltrexone from community pharmacies to these patients or their carers.
Study 1
1. Patient’s biodata and treatment given at Dar L-Impenn was evaluated by studying the treatment charts (medical records) of 116 patients who had been admitted at Dar L-Impenn for detoxification between 6th June 1996 and 6th June 1997.
2. Patients (total of 116) that underwent detoxification by naltrexone over the period June 96-June 97, were contacted six months after being detoxified and invited to participate in the study. During an interview conducted personally these patients were asked about their experience while undergoing detoxification, what are their views about naltrexone, and how this treatment effected their lifestyle. During this interview patient’s quality of life and the therapeutic outcome was determined. The quality of life was determined by using a questionnaire devised by Dr C. Bradley. It is subdivided into depression, anxiety, positive well-being and energy.
Study 2
A questionnaire was given to all practicing community pharmacists. Pharmacists were accessed whether they are informed about the treatment of opioid addicts using the naltrexone-clonidine combination and asked if they are willing to participate in the dispensing of naltrexone.
Study 1
Between 6 June 1996 and 6 June 1997, 116 opiate dependent patients were admitted at Dar L-Impenn to undergo rapid opiate detoxification. 93.97% of the patients were males. 42.24% of the patients were in the range of 21 to 25 years.
Subject Characteristics
Marital Status
Educational level
Trade school
Post secondary
Cannot read or write
Development of treatment
Over one year period treatment was modified to improve outcome. Over the first few months naltrexone was administered on the first day of admission and was given over a four day period in increasing doses, as a single morning dose in combination with clonidine.
Treatment was then modified with clonidine being administered on its own for the first two days to control withdrawal symptoms after which the naltrexone-clonidine combination is introduced in the same therapeutic regimen as before.
Treatment Outcome
78.81% completed detoxification successfully. Success rate from methadone treatment is in the region of 30 %4. This improved outcome obtained from detoxification by naltrexone was probably due to shorter duration of in-patient treatment.
60.34%(n=70) of the patients accepted to be interviewed. Out of these 22.86% (n=16) were on naltrexone and were attending group therapy. The other 75.7% had relapsed and were on methadone. General well-being and quality of life were found to be directly related to treatment outcome, stability within family and at work. 37% (n=26) claimed to have a good quality of life. Most of these patients were attending group therapy.
Study 2
A questionnaire was given to 200 practicing community pharmacists. A response rate of 63% (n=126) was obtained. 56.35% were females, 42.24% were between 25 and 35 years.
8.73% indicated that they are willing to dispense naltrexone to patients or their carers on a daily basis. 24.6% would do so on a weekly basis and 42.86% are not willing to dispense naltrexone. 23.81% gave no response. The reasons given were mainly due to lack of time, unavailability of adequate place and security of the pharmacy. Only 15.87% of the pharmacists said that they were informed about the subject and 63.5% said that they are willing to attend a seminar.
Todate pharmacists do not form part of the health care team involved in the treatment of opioid addicts. This study would identify what the role of the pharmacist in this treatment is, and propose a protocol for the dispensing of naltrexone.

Lot 12, "Untitled" by David Hammons, 54 by 60 by 16 inches, 2000

Perhaps the most amusing work in the auction is Lot 12, "Untitled," by David
Hammons (b.  1943)(GS), as it depicts a basketball hoop with a mirror as a backboard that is festooned with crystal and brass sconces and candle-like
 lights and a net of crystal beads. The 54-by-60-by-16-inch work is unique and
was executed in 2000. It has an estimate of $250,000 to $350,000. It sold for  $409,500, rather significantly shattering the previous world auction record for the artist of $18,500 set at Christie's in London in November, 1999.

Michael McGinnis, the head of Phillips's contemporary art department,
said after the auction that the artist's work is difficult to get. "In this work,,"
the catalogue notes, "the basketball hoop was explored as both an icon
of black male street cool, as well as a symbol of disenfranchisement and poverty….The surreal fusion of the athletic, common basketball hoop and the pristine, chandelier and crystal elements, not only bring forward the notion of kitsch, but more specifically, make undeniably obvious two very strong clichés in American society: the stereotype that basketball is
synonymous with African American males, and the ornate chandelier symbolic of the bourgeoisie 'Wasp' society."

David Hammons has been referred to as a professional poacher, whether it is taking snow from the
streets of Harlem to make and sell snowballs, hair from the barber shops, chichken wings from take-out
 restaurants, bestowing a sense of aesthetic order  on these ordinary things. The artist often makes
connections between his own history, and other communities addressing cultural stereotypes and their
power to identify as well as demean.

                                     A Vintage rant from R@wman  
         "The Church of Shopping Now & Forever Amen."

But first.
What has fueled the draft Beer renaissance in the USA?

1. A growing ecological awareness that some of the tools and methods of modern agriculture are
 destructive, causing many to seek alternatives, among which is the draft beer as a source of power.

2. An economic crunch that makes home-grown power that runs on home raised fuel, which in turn
enriches the soil in the form of manure, reproduces itself plus providing surplus for sale, and
appreciates rather than depreciates for the first half of its life. Look better and better.

(To the wrong 'Dave do you honestly care what anyone but you thinks?" ED)

To the wrong David Beck: Dudes if the truth needs protection, it ain’t...
How real is that truth?
The truth is within your grasp.  Any other assumption is not the truth how else can the truth set you free.

Propaganda is still lies & anyway if it was not a lie but merrily a mistaken belief so what, someone wills
it you see it every day in advertising that presupposes you will  believe anything anybody has to say
just because they are aware you are vulnerable and unaware of that for instance?

There’s a sucker born every nanosecond... Guaranteed Genuine Ersatz! Totally a genuine fake!
 The real Bozo baloney-verse.

St. Nicholas bribed all if his constituents to say he preformed Miracles so he could become a Bishop
that gave him and his family grate power and wealth.  and much later he became the only Icon of

"The Church of Acting Like You Really Like Life Once A Year Weather You Really (Fear) Like it or not

things I mean when push comes to shove and you must go out and strangle some sort of mammal in
 order to absorb its protean so your bodies can live and Re-Excrete whatever residue how far from
your rat hole do you actually go is determined only by  what we laughingly call culture which I might add

you can blow off! you actually gotta do something when you are alive You! are a member of a
species of which 8 out of 10 are dying of hunger and most are children and   illiterate and suffering
 in pain of disease due to your consumption of THERE Natural resources., being without that critical
 25% more "raw materials without pay" read protean starved in there Mothers Holy Wombs so expect
some "Hard RAIN!"

Eventually... We drafted People & trained them to Kill Why Not Draft People & train them to Heal!!

We need more schools & hospitals not more bombs and weaponised common colds that drive down
GNP in order to support quotas and econometric standards established by gargantuan federal
standards out of line as it were with human need in every way.

What makes it week as a belief is that ANY interpellation dilutes it until it is mutated into what we have
 now... [No Faith] The oblivion of making people do what you want with out actually having to kill them
 or hanging drawing and quartering them to motivate them... As the elders were all to willing to initiate
at the drop of a hat.

Show them the instruments of torture... Confess and we wont need to use these instruments of torture
 on you [show the torture bloody crusted  greasy  tools snippy ball-peen-hammer serrated knife nut
 picks mallets rusty pliers and a bunch of shards from a broken  Elvis-Costello record...

Yes people have no focus but they have not lost a grater truth there never was one there are as many
 ways as there are beings (this includes those sentient beings) [with eyes] we call Animals. The
Sapiens you call The Blacks were considered animals and are the actual progenitor of all races alive
 on earth yet they are starved ripped off and allowed to die of famine and disease while a morally
bankrupted and psychically numbed Western society debates there 35 million week & ill who will die
 of aids alone leaving millions of desperate orphans to wander the earth trying to sell you a faux
Chinese Rolex wristwatch on the busy street corner of any town E-USA.

While  the Good Old USA debates its "own memorial "Should the civil servants have as separate
memorial” or will we die from a terrorist dirty bomb provided by the DOD to an Alkida Tallaban Red
Guard Ben laden merges and becomes a mindfukingshrill Screeeeing! sound “They wouldn't do
that!” Reichstag crap again... Its like Rambo 2010 all friggen over again...

Snap outta it! Your Life / The World is about what ever you say it is that why art is dangerous.

Good artist borrow Greater Artist Steal... Every day  & that is not enough because it tends to be like
cow cud chewing cud slurp  burp plop! plop! plop!...

You live in a Super so-called Free country that puts its population in the front lines( charging them $160
billion plus as they say for the privilege) as if they were in a Colonial Settlement constantly Under Siege
 say like in Israel... In order to sell the concept of perpetual war, it  WE wages war on it's civilians...

(Like Al Cap's syndicated tabloid cartoon Pogo use to say I is Regusted I haz seen de enemy & he is US!)

And for what? It’s all to maintain an unimpeded flow.
 Production and Distribution of weapons of mass destruction, designed to eliminate the civil population
 that toil in Union free factories that make them.   Now that’s real art.
And as far as church goes God is DEAD! Go back to work!...  And Now The moment of silence...
And as far as church goes God is BREAD! Go back to work!... The moment of silence is over...

I swore that I wasn't going to reply to Nikki's ramblings. I was one who
opposed Nikki's condemnation of the Church because of their so-called
persecution of gnostics. I am not RC, so I'm not sure who the
mean-spirited virulence came from. A former member of the list (who was
RC) did offer some historical perspectives. But it wasn't mean spirited.
The point that I made was that the church had to decide what was "true"
and what wasn't. They weren't children of the age of tolerance and
relativism. They believed in an absolute truth, one that they felt needed
to protected and safe-guarded. They could not allow gnostic beliefs to
enter the church. (If the gnostics are correct, then the apostolic
tradition is wrong. But you can't have both.)
Is it mean and, God forbid, intolerent to recap the postion of the
Church during this time? Nikki's last email implies that the people who
disagreed were mean-spirited or didn't know about the gnostics. I've read
Pagels and I do know about the gnostic beliefs (I've read the gnostic
gospels). I'm willing to discuss their beliefs. While Nikki believes that
he knows more than the rest of us, I'm willing to discuss their beliefs
and why they were rejected by the Church. And I've even read beyond Pagels
(who is about as objective as Karen Armstrong).
And, while most of us, have a great interest in Percy's work,
the fact that, as you report, he never argued with such "virulence" means
nothing. I know I'm not trying to model my life on Percy's, nor do I think
that he would want me to.
But I agree with Steve: your email is condescending. Sorry if some of us
disagreed with some your "beliefs" a few years ago. But go back and read
the archives. I'll even re-post some of them, if necessary. Let's see how
mean and virulent they were. In the meantime, I'd like to hear your
response to Steve's email, if it isn't too mean-spirited.
