    San Bernadino - semi-rural desert community at the base of an east-west mountain range. Anglos, Blacks and Hispanics I think. There is a California State University campus there. Also diplomatic consulates. The city of San Bernadino filed for bankruptcy in 2012.

    The city was founded by Hispanic Catholics and named after Saint Bernadino:

    Let's predict.

    Were the gunmen:

    1) Arab terrorists
    2) Hispanic gangbangers
    3) Black THUGs
    4) Anglo conservatives
    5) Disgruntled student
    6) White Muslim converts
    7) Environmentalists
    8) Italians?!

    Police confirm that people have died in the shooting at a Southern California social services center.

    San Bernardino police Sgt. Vicki Cervantes told KCBS-TV on Wednesday that "there are multiple casualties and there are some confirmed fatalities." She says she doesn't have specific numbers.

    She told the television station that it appears there was more than one shooter. She believes they were wearing "military-style" attire.

    What we know so far:


    At least 14 people are dead and 14 others injured in a shooting at an Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, Calif., Wednesday afternoon.
    Up to three gunmen opened fire inside the facility — which serves people with developmental disabilities a facility — and fled in a dark SUV, police said.
    The gunmen were armed with long guns and were wearing what appeared to be ski masks and vests, witnesses said.
    A manhunt for the suspects is under way.
    FBI and ATF agents cleared the building. About 300 people were evacuated, police said.
    Bomb technicians were called in to inspect a suspicious device.

    Well there has been a drought in California for some time, so I guess this sort of thing is to be expected.

    Tragic, nothing out of the ordinary as far as America is concerned, but tragic nonetheless.

    Middle easterners and Hispanics are generally caucasian (at least partially) so basically white, as opposed to Asian or Black.

    Bad stuff, but small time compared to government sponsored slaughters both in the US and internationally.

    You are wrong. White does not mean Caucasian, and there are Asian Caucasians.

    Gandhi was a non-white Asian Caucasian.

    However, it is true, that Middle Easterners and Hispanics are generally Caucasian. Most Blacks in the USA are partially Caucasian too. Slavemasters liked to make more slaves by using their slaves...and the new ones come out lighter skin, which slavemaster tended to prefer.

    The case could be made that Finns are white non-Caucasians. Basques too.

    How complex our artificial groupings of people are?

    It comes from mixing different classifications.

    Caucasian is based on ancestry and skull shape. Whiteness is based on latitude.

    You seem to have it down. I really don't care about those classifications. Humans are humans to me.
