Yet, in 2005 blacks made up 13% of the US population.
1 DOJ statistics.

All of those stats are true. I'm a criminal justice major and we look into a lot of that stuff...

But her video didn't mention any of that. Her video isn't any more "potent" in our cause because she is black.

It's just another American standing up for their/our rights.

I just don't agree with making the distinction. We sould unite under the cause, not pick and choose whose arguments/statements hold more powere because of who they are.

Then watch the lame stream media try to figure that one out.

Good idea! Ha ha

You are right, we SHOULD not care if the veiws are from someone that is black or white, male or female, rich or poor. The thing is, most people in this world DO care. This woman will be seen by some on the pro 2nd Amendment side as proof that the anti 2nd Amendment side can be converted. Others will give her a better ear cause they will not listen to a white guy like me. If we are going to protect the 2nd Amendment, we need all the help we can get.

I believe we're getting away from the point of this lady's statement.

Apologies for using the qualifier Lady.
