We can’t even depend on some teachers to refrain from having sex with their teenage students, now we want to put guns in their hands. A break up between the algebra teacher and 9th grade Timmy could get very ugly!
Last week the NRA spokesman said Black people need more guns. This time instead of following the money, let’s follow the racism. There are only two reasons he wants black to have more guns…1.to encourage black on black crime and 2. because the majority of gun violence perpetuated by Black people happens in black cites and neighborhoods. Not their hood not their problem, right?
And that’s why we…the people are most likely to be victims of shootings. We should be protesting the loudest about gun reform.
Let’s face it, the lobbyist, manufacturers, politicians and others who are getting fat wallets from the sales of guns are counting on the fact that neither they or any of their family members will ever be shot. The odds are probably in their favor.
All you have to do is read an urban newspaper and you’ll see that we aren’t as lucky.
Meanwhile, as the debate goes on, gun sales are off the chain. Many of the purchasers are reacting to the messages from right wing media, including Christian radio, that President Obama is coming for their guns. So combine the fact that we already have a track record of the Stand Your Ground Law working against us; we also have angry, gun-toting people ready to wage a war because they think the President is after their guns.
Sorry to say this, but it is becoming more and more dangerous to be black in America… or anywhere. Let’s get these guns off the streets!
