<quoted text>What the hell does the first wookie have to do with the discussion? Speaking of founding organizations, the NRA was formed to help blacks with weapons training to help them turn back the KKK. Tell the first wookie to screech on that while throwing her excrement.
NRA was formed to help Black people kill whitey? Hey, where's the nearest NRA sign up line? That's what Malcolm X told the army psychiatrist. He said, " You mean to tell me you'll give me a gun and I can shoot white people and not go to jail for it, where do I sign?" After hearing that, the army rejected him for service. Very smart trick.
On the other hand, white trash Ted Nugent, shit himself for a month, then wore those jeans to the recruitment center and got deferred from Nam.

L.--Dred Scott, as I recall, determined that black slaves were property, a status that did not cease simply because they managed to escape a state that allowed slavery into a state that did not allow slavery. This allowed slave owners to pursue, capture and return those human beings that were considered to be their property across the Mason-Dixon line.
The 5/8ths rule was a compromise that went into the determination of population for the purpose of deciding how many representatives a given state sent to Congress. The Southern states were afraid of being outvoted by the Northern states if only those persons legally recognized as full citizens were included in their population count. The compromise was that they were allowed to count 5/8ths of the slave population.
Both rather embarrassing facts from our history, I agree. And certain such history does feed the present.
But in this case, I would urge that we focus on the present--a present in which safety and security are widely regarded as being best handled individually--rather than relying on the police--and guns are seen as a mark of manhood. Shooting someone is thought by many as simply something that a man is called upon to do in defense of self, property, family or reputation. And there are plenty of current slurs, put-downs and outright racism to be concerned with.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Bigots are still trying to nullify the black vote in cities across America! Now we have black conservatives speaking out against the voting rights act! That is why those blacks will continue to be called uncle toms and sell-outs by many who are in the urban communities.

I know that a lotta folks are befuddled by complexities, but sometimes you gotta know when to move. I don't believe that Obama is any less concerned with this kind of killing than the shooting in Connecticut. But, the American public is.
In fact, if you listened to his words in response to Connecticut he drew attention to the many more murders of young people, including young black people, on the streets every single day. When he offered his package of recommendations, he made clear that in the one month since the school shooting 900 Americans have died from guns.
Maybe you have forgotten the beating that Obama took for uttering the simple words, "if I had a son, he would look like Trayvon Martin."
Yes, tip, I am certain that your hatred for President Obama goes far deeper than his actions or words in relationship to any single incident. And your hatred seems to be interfering with your capability to think clearly on any issues.
But Obama never used the killing of young people - mostly males - to put forth legislation on way or the other regarding gun ownership. Why? Personally, I don't for a minute think he loses so much as a minute of sleep of them.

Trayvon Martin is accused of no crime. His "guilt or innocence" is not in question.
If Zimmerman is found to have acted in self-defense, then Martin is by no means innocent.

No. We came to this land in chains two centauries ago and still suffer from institutional racism.
"WE" don't suffer from institutional racism. YOU might suffer from something, but I don't suffer from anything. I'm a thirty five year old, hard-working, tax-paying, law-abiding, black female. I have a hard-working, tax-paying, law-abiding, black husband and three straight A student children who have never been in trouble at school or with the law and were NOT born out of wedlock or raised on welfare money. We live in a big, beautiful home with a big yard with three vehicles in the garage in quiet neighborhood. We love our lives. My husband and I both struggled while growing up poor, but we didn't use that as an excuse to ruin our lives further by using and selling drugs, skipping classes and having children with multiple people out of wedlock when we couldn't afford to raise a child. We may not have been raised with money, but we were raised with morals. We don't make excuses. We make changes. White people isn't to blame for your failures or black teenagers failures any more than they're the reason for my successes. White people don't cause black people to sell crack or shoot another black person. You can listen to the black rappers' songs that glorify drugs and gang violence and degrade women to see where troubled black youths get their inspiration. They need to listening to pastors and Martin Luther King Jr. speeches, not some fake, wannabe gangster's rap songs. Do you blame white people for what the black rappers rap about? Black people who are always blaming someone else for their problems need to stop the excuses and start making changes. Barack Obama would probably not be in the White House right now or ever if he thought like you do.

They (black youth) need to *be listening to pastors and Martin Luther King Jr. speeches, not some fake, wannabe gangster's rap songs, I meant. Overlook my typos. When I get angry, I type too fast and proofread too little.

If the goal is to cut down on the number of people who are shot and die, exactly how is that goal furthered by your statement?

As long as those being shot and dying are criminals, I see no reason to limit the numbers. Whether this kid was a criminal or not remains to be seen. The actions of his family at OSU in the aftermath seem to indicate that he didn't come from a civilized blood line.
I'd be willing to bet a steak dinner that the shooter in yesterday's incident was not the legal owner of the gun, nor was he a CCW permit holder, nor was he old enough to even possess a handgun.
That's the problem, Reader. Not the legal ownership of firearms by law abiding citizens.

Michelle Obama knows exactly what is going on in my community and among people of color. Did you ever hear of the NAACP? The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People? These agencies exist to fight against people like you.
Maybe you should call them for a job? But even they don't hire stupid people! So you are out of luck, Again!

Going against the grain! And it works! Too bad Latifah just doesn't get it.

We you say "we", who do you mean? YOU, were not brought here in chains, unless you are 200 years old! You were given a brain like everyone else. Learn to use it. Help yourself. Nobody owes you anything. I am not rich, I was not brought up rich. But I work hard for what I have accomplished. And one day I will retire on the money I earned and saved. If I count on the government to pay my retirement I and my family will starve. So get off your lazy rear and work hard and some day you can become something other than a welfare recipient!

However, those being shot and dying are clearly not limited to criminals.

And the owners of legal weapons do not seem to be able to keep their guns out of the wrong hands.

Baseless and despicable accusation.

Law-abiding gunowners have absolutely no role in the criminal deaths of gangstas in the hood.
