While i agree the "N word" has nothing to do with firearms, i don't see any reason for this thread to be locked. Lets just try to get back to jrocs point of how awesome his videos are first

Basically its a bad word used to invoke hate of or in others and should not be used. In today's society bad means good, hot is not always a reference for temperature and many other words have been taken and used to represent something else. The use of the word may not offend you or some butat it still offends others and as adults we should think about how the words we speak or type may affect those that hear and read them.
Yeah that's true that's true. That word still mite offend many. But as far as me I'm not that sensitive when it come to racism. "Jumping Off Topic" But so many times I would be playing Call Of Duty online and a lot of racial would be on there and throw that word around towards me. But it would never get me mad because I know if them dudes was in arms reach they wouldn't even look at me wrong. And so many times people like to label me as a Gangsta,Gang Banger & Stuff ... O_o That's mostly a lot of people judgment towards me even the Black Community. But won't take the time out to get to know a person. And if you get to know me more you will like me a whole let better

I watched Roc's videos and didn't find anything offensive to me personally and honestly it was just a few young folks enjoying firearms in a safe manner, they could use some more instruction but I could easily find myself shooting with this group. I think the video may be getting flack for it's commonality, the main reason we watch youtube videos would be by people more advanced than us and providing instruction/information. The content of Roc's videos is of pretty common occurrences in every range across the nation BUT to someone who identifies with Roc's appearance and demeanor who's never been to a range may appreciate his video, actually it would be cool if Roc turned them into instructional videos in his own words, like describing how a range works, rules and what to expect on your first visit. There's some constructive critique, rather than just bashing.

I have a good friend who's father in law will slap his kids/nephews/etc for using that word as you described. He is a former NFL player, police officer, and now a retired Fire Captain, so he gets a lot of respect from family and friends. I guess everything is relative.

Maybe make a couple videos instructional as like you was saying. Thank You for taking the time out to write a good motivational comment

Roc, i am not being judgemental, but making some suggestions here. i saw some of your videos and conclude maybe you need to get some more training first yourself before taking on the responsibility of training others in firearms usage. i think you are headed in the right direction, but need some more instruction and training first. i commend you on your desire to teach others safe and responsible gun handling and think your heart and mind are in the right place. think about looking into a NRA Instructors course or something similar to help you out. there is a big difference between knowing personally how to handle firearms safely and teaching others how to do so. like i said i think you are headed in the right direction and keep on doing it and you will get there.

And with that being said that's how you feel that's how you feel you are untitled to your own opinion
