Apart from his plan to shoot women for “depriving” him of sex, he also stabbed three Chinese male students to death. Would you see this as a case of extreme internalised racism and trying to cling onto his whiteness?
Yes. Racism was definitely linked to his primary motivation, misogyny. He obviously worshipped white male supremacy. The fact that he was in some degree Asian (as self-hating as he was, we can’t deny that) is disturbing. Please, people who are multiracial Asians, don’t feel responsible for this monster because of your family. These kind of mass murderers can come from any race, but they’re almost always men.
I can only imagine the suffering of his mother, who is Chinese-Malaysian, and had called the cops on him two weeks earlier to no effect. This is a really painful episode a lot of people are having problems processing.
I’d encourage people not to use his name, just call him “the UCSB shooter” or something like that. For reasons, read this post. We can also work for more gun control in this country so these people at least leave less of a body count, and speak out against rape culture as well as gun culture.
