Mike Rawlings: Dallas Mayor Explains Why White Men Are Scarier Than Refugees

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings (D) isn’t afraid of the Syrian refugees fleeing a civil war in the Middle East. He’s more concerned about the white men who grab military-grade firearms and shoot up public venues.

Speaking to MSNBC on Saturday morning, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings was asked to discuss the growing anxiety over Syrian refugees entering the United States, purportedly due to concerns they could be potential agents for militant groups such as ISIS. Rawlings staunchly rejected the assertion that Syrians are somehow uniquely prone to violence, saying he is more concerned with the rise of white supremacy and the recent flurry of mass shootings committed by white men.

“I am more fearful of large gatherings of white men that come into schools, theaters and shoot people up, but we don’t isolate young white men on this issue,” Rawlings said.

He also said that vilifying refugees only helps ISIS, as doing so falls into their “trap.” He then pushed back on the notion that ISIS is somehow representative of Islam.

“ISIS is no more Islamic than Nazi senior staff was Christian,” he said. He also subtly challenged Christian governors and other followers of Christ who have rejected refugees, referencing Jesus’ scriptural call to “welcome the stranger” in Matthew 25:41-43, asking, “Christ following people like myself — how do we deal with this issue of strangers, and are we going to let them in?”

    So, in a community park in Illinois, 500 or more blacks are gathered and shooting breaks out, 17 are shot, yet this moron thinks white men are more dangerous than terroists, mobs of blacks, illegals shooting into crowds on famous tourist piers… Yep, he’s got the problem nailed to the floor… it’s the democratic party that is more to be feared than any other problem in this country.

      Sorry but the vast majority of mass shootings, serial killers and pedophiles are white males.

        You are correct, but all the mass shootings and serial killers combined do not total the number of blacks shot by blacks in Chicago in one calendar year alone. Where is that outrage. However, the vast majority of families being wiped out by one single killer are, you got it, black. Where is the outrage. I’m not buying it. Blacks haven’t figured out yet that the democrats have nothing more in mind than to allow them to genocide their own race, such as thru planned parenthood.
