What Mass Shootings Tell Us About America



What Mass Shootings Tell Us About America

The horrific mass shootings in Uvalde, Texas, and Buffalo, New York, revealed that no one–whether elderly Black people in a supermarket or 10-year-old Latino children at school–are safe from gun violence in America. While this is clearly a failure of our gun policies and of misplaced faith in policing, it also indicates a deeper rot in American society.

Henry Giroux writes in Truthout, “what is ignored is a neoliberal economic system that feeds on self-interest, inequality, cruelty, punishment, precarity and loneliness.”
