What if . . .

First, read this story:

At least one person was dead, and two were seriously wounded after an intoxicated man hurling racial slurs opened fire inside a packed Kansas bar on Wednesday night, police said.
The gunman fled Austin’s Bar and Grill in Olathe after blasting off several rounds around 7:15 p.m., cops said in a news release. Cops arrested him at his home in Clinton, Mo. some 80 miles away after they were able to negotiate with him over the phone early Thursday.

The three male victims were taken to an area hospital, where one of them passed away. At least one of the other two was listed in critical condition.

Patrons at the bar told the Kansas City Star that the gunman is white and in his 50s. Before the shooting, he had apparently been drinking hard, and continuously exclaimed racial slurs. When a bar regular told him to stop, the man pulled out a gun and started shooting.

Two of the victims were reportedly of Middle Eastern or Indian descent.

Got that?  " . . .  Cops arrested him at his home in Clinton, Mo. some 80 miles away after they were able to negotiate with him over the phone early Thursday."

Now, tell me:  What would have happened to the gunman if:
-- He had been black
-- He had been Muslim

Tell me again about how there's no such thing as white privilege.
