Suzy Sock Puppet BS: Why do Democrats want to Disarm Blacks? (162* d) RE: BS: Why do Democrats want to Disarm Blacks? 02 Aug 13


I think it needs to be pointed out that in terms of helping Afro-Americans achieve equality, the Republicans and Democrats switched sides somewhere along the way. So I think your info is simply out of date Songwronger. It would be the Republicans at this point that would want to find ways to discourage legal gun ownership among Afro-Americans. And, I'm sure they are doing it in the same way that they are discouraging the vote-in the backdoor. Plus making gun laws that allow white people to shoot minorities and get away with it is very much in line with their racist beliefs.

Politically aware Afro-Americans are for gun control because they understand that although the gun culture didn't come from their community, they are the ones that are being hurt the most by this false sense of empowerment with guns- in a couple of different ways. They are notoriously bad shooters because they would be somewhat unwelcome at the shooting range. Cops and military- that's it. Not to be trusted unless firmly under the thumb of the state. What goes on in the gangsta subculture has done nothing to allay those fears. Pretty sure that was the point but it's not particularly helpful.

But remember, demographics are changing. I'd like to see the police disarmed as well.
