    Total BS. Most people are stressed about their own lives, making ends meet, family and personal relations. Mass murders are probably the least of their worries. There's about 25 million "people of color" who are pretty stressed out about ICE coming to get them. There's a bunch of people in CA stressed out about their homes and the fires. Just wait until the House impeaches President Trump, a lot of people are going to stress out about the losses in their 401K plans. Hopefully, they will all remember who tanked their savings come Nov 2020.

    It's not stress, it's keeping an eye on trouble.

    If it isn't close to home, especially in the pocketbook, it's of little consequence to the majority of Americans. Gossip about a friend, coworker, or neighbor is of far more importance.

Some 85 percent of people who identified as Hispanic and almost eight in ten black and Asian American respondents say these atrocities are highly stressful.
    The survey was released Wednesday by the American Psychological Association (APA).
    Vaile Wright, director of practice research and policy at the APA and an author on the report, tells Inverse the results -- and the fact that minorities are more likely to experience stress about mass shootings -- aren't a surprise.
    "People of color are being targeted. Whether it is the El Paso shooting or some other issue, marginalized groups are disproportionately being effected," she says

    They didn't ask me. We can't have mass shootings where I live because there aren't any masses to shoot at. Mass shootings are a city problem.

    Why aren't they called Negros/Negroids? Is science prejudiced? Is Caucasian prejudiced? How did Oriental become a slur? When did Hispanic become Race? Hispanics are Caucasians of color, sometimes.

    Why are Caucasians called white people? They're of many different shades of pink or beige, almost none white.

    The primary race of people today is bullshitter.

    Been in mass shootings in the military. Bothered me some then, not much. Now doesn't bother me at all.

    Was this survey designed to get these results because I hardly ever stress out about such things. I rarely stress about getting hit by lightening either
