That might be too much like right.
And though I’m sure Ward thinks it’s cute and witty, unless he secretly wants stricter gun laws, he’s going to be his own agenda’s worst enemy.
Go ahead, Mr. Ward, keep selling the visual of a vengeful, freed slave killing White people and burning down White supremacy to Washington — see how far that gets you.
This is not Ward’s first time making headlines in the gun debate. He recently generated a storm of criticism when he suggested that Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. would appreciate Gun Appreciation Day falling within a few days of his birthday when the country generally focuses on his non-violent message:
“I think Martin Luther King, Jr. would agree with me if he were alive today that if African Americans had been given the right to keep and bear arms from day one of the country’s founding, perhaps slavery might not have been a chapter in our history, Ward said in a appearance on CNN .”
Besides being a complete misrepresentation of his passive, conciliatory message, and regardless of which side one falls on the gun debate, I believe Dr. King would be more interested in determining — in the cases of both Ward and Tarantino — how long do White men plan on using slavery for their own financial benefit.
