Is This Anti-Gun Video Racist? If Not That, What?

"Gun control" (courtesy youtube.com)

In the video below, two black actors pretend to be dumb, drooling, white, racist redneck gun owners asserting their Second Amendment right to think and do stupid sh*t. Imagine if the video showed a couple of white actors portrayig black gang bangers waiting to do a drive-by, praising gun control for keeping their victims unarmed. That would have the PC antis howling with charges of exploitation and racism.

But this. This is funny! Or, you know, not. I for one . . .

am getting tired of the fact that the media thinks it’s OK to lampoon [white] gun owners with a nasty combination of condescension and straight-up hate. You?

        Your post is meant to be funny because in your “mind” people like me are always making some outrageous claim that this or that is racist, folks like me are always fabricating some crazy case about racism , racism racism racism it’s all we ever talk about, when you and yours know very well that racism is insignificant(except for interpersonal racism against white folks of course : D)
        Well Im gonna give you something else to laugh about, your post is racist(!) : D for trivializing the very serious issue of racism, and naturally if you were at a disadvantage in every aspect of life simple because of your race you would not think it was all fire amusin!!
        You’d be focused on the dollars but that would be because black unemployment has been twice the level of white employment for several decades, and their is a wage/salary gap, and the average black family has 1/13th the wealth of the average white family, and with an identical resume you get invited to interview 50% less if your name sounds black… you wouldnt be so inclined to make oh so very droll remarks about our first racist president and smirk at folks who raise the issue of racism then and now and everywhere in between… buttwipe : D

Show me that George W. was paid more than Obama during his presidency and we’ll talk. Except that Trump is making $1/year, what horrid discrimination. People make what they earn, you should start asking why some cultures earn less than others, as opposed to blaming irrelevant factors. Makes you appear a fool. Oh, wait …

        And if you feel up to reading a serious monogram(It will be more difficult that listening to Mark Levine or Sean Hannity so git yer gumption up fer it), Erica Dunbar’s “Never Caught” examines the relationship between George and Martha and Oney Judge one of their slaves who escaped from the bondage our revered Founding Father held her in, she stole herself : D and seized her freedom, and George was outraged and pursued her like a Mafioso… maybe this too will help cure you of your smart aleck attitude toward the brutal institution of white supremacist chattel slavery this country was founded on… maybe you wont find it so all fire funny to joke about the visage of slave holders like Washington or genocidal Jackson on our money…buttwipe : D

          No one cares. Slavery in the 18th century was a far preferable institution to many other situations the lower class might find itself in at the time. You think being a slave is bad? Try being a serf in continental Europe during the same period.

          The reality is that white Europeans were the first group on the planet to outlaw slavery and then the British Empire spent about a century and a vast sum of treasure trying to eradicate the practice worldwide. You’re welcome.

        “What you NRA racists dont know about the ongoing history of race and racism would fill infinite warehouses”
        I can’t tell if you’re just spouting trolling BS or if you don’t realize you’re making a mockery of yourself. Is it racist to contradict BLM with the fact that black suspects are actually LESS likely to be shot than white suspects? Or that “hands up don’t shoot” never happened in Ferguson? Don’t get me wrong – police are not flawless, and injustice happens. Slager murdered Walter Scott and was rightfully convicted.
        The Left has a long history of playing the racism card against the NRA. In the 80’s and 90’s, it was claiming that it was the “N***** Removal Agency.” Sure, an organization of 5 million is going to have some racist members, but the vast majority of the members and the official policies aren’t. Blacks are welcome at the NRA, and will find friendly greetings at most any shooting range or gun store. The NRA was founded by Northeners after the Civil War to improve marksmanship because they got their asses kicked on a man-for-man basis by the South.
        An astounding number of black men and older boys are murdered, and much of it involves guns. However, it’s other black men and boys pulling those triggers, not white racists. It is not the fault of the NRA.
        Calling for universal background checks, assault weapons bans, magazine bans or any other attack on gun rights isn’t going to change that. Even if you could magically take the guns away from the criminal gangs, they would still go after each other with whatever weapons they could get ahold of. Drug dealing and the illicit profits fuel the violence, and they’ll use the most effective weapon they can get to protect their territory, income, and pride. With tons of drugs being smuggled, adding a few guns to the load (even machine guns) is trivial, or the money will pay for someone to illegally manufacturer one.
        Admittedly, I’m not part of the black community. What would it take to stop the gangs? Would drug legalization take the profit out of it and kill it off like ending Prohibition did for the alcohol gangs? What would make young black men value their lives and want to improve themselves instead of becoming criminals? Many have no economic opportunity because they don’t get the educatiob they need. Why not? Is free college or job training the answer when many don’t even have the high school education to take advantage of it? Offer solutions – we want the help.

        Professor Manque,

        “… the mountain of indisputable evidence documenting systemic institutionalized racism disadvantaging black folks in every aspect of life ie education, wages, employment, health care, longevity, housing, police/courts etc. …”

        Systemic institutionalized racism? No! What we have is institutionalized exploitation and suppression of poor and uneducated people. Welfare rewards people for being poor and uneducated and encourages them to stay poor and uneducated. Free abortions encourages poor and uneducated people to be irresponsible. Our “criminal justice system” ravages poor and uneducated people. And our schools are an abject failure in the areas where poor and uneducated people are the majority.

        If you truly want to see an end to the exploitation and suppression of poor and uneducated people, start mentoring a poor and uneducated child.

        You forgot your pinnacle in punctuation: “buttwipe…”

        And learn how to punctuate, especially with indenting/returning (i.e. use of paragraphs in the format of internet message boards and forums should be a single space between them). Wall of Text is not pleasant to look at.

        “This thread for example is evidence of your racism, despite being immersed in countless instances of white supremacist racism ie the endless millions and millions of videos and posts smearing Obama and Black Lives Matter …”

        Not liking Obama and BLM, because of their ideals and goals and activities isn’t racist just because they happen to be black, any more than hating Trump is racist just because he happens to be white.
        Of course, that little bit of fact just doesn’t occur to you because you see racism everywhere except when you do it.

        What IS racist is that I still don’t get notifications of followup comments.
        Obviously it’s because I’m whatever race I happen to be.

      1. avatar ProfessorManque says:

        Mercury the donkey gives us another example of how the ignorance(this means you dont know anything) and stupidity(this means when I explain it you cant understand) of NRA racists prevents yall from understanding how race and racism work in America.
        So in America racism is expressed via white supremacy, so black folks are stereotyped as dumb and lazy and criminal etc not white folks, blacks folks, they are the ones on the receiving end of racism in America.
        And blacks folks in America were enslaved for centuries and black folks were terrorized and brutalized during Jim Crow and black folks were further dehumanized under Southern-style Apartheid, and today black folks continue to suffer more subtle contemporary racism.
        And you can easily confirm the extreme substantive toll racism takes on black folks via peer reviewed studies ie identical resumes with black names are invited to interview 50% less than those with white names, subjects more often accidentally shoot unarmed black suspects more often than white, as well as via real world metrics ie black folks lives are shorter, the average wealth of a black family is 1/13th that of a white family…
        You see this is the systemic institutionalized racism that results from a combination of the remnants of historical white supremacy and more nuanced ongoing racism, and it harms not white folks but black folks, black folks in America are at a disadvantage by every metric.
        Now if I was a moron like you I’d constantly be collecting instances of interpersonal racism by black folks ie everytime some young jerk in the pick-up game calls me “white boy”, or some old fool slurs me as a “wood” or a “cracker” and I’d pretend this is the REAL racism, the racism that counts and its all I would ever talk about… and it’s also that youre not a nice guy, youre not fair or honest, and youre mean, you don’t care, it doesn’t hurt you, so fawk them, thats your childish selfish attitude

        1. avatar drunkEODguy says:

          holy shit I hope you really aren’t so stupid. There’s been a black president, several black secretaries of defense, HUD, surgeons generals, cabinet members of every stripe, senators, representatives, mayors, CEO’s, small business owners. Matter of fact, in America in 2017 blacks (like the rest of Americans of every color and creed) have it better than most of the rest of humanity of the face of planet earth. Certainly there was historical injustice and violence up until fairly recent history. However, the last four decades have seen an unparalleled improvement in race relations that have made that phenomenon regulated to history. If you truly think that America is so terrible a country and racist I challenge you to find one that’s better off and go there, surely there’s one.

          But you won’t, you’d rather find occasions of interpersonal white on black racism that represents a fraction of a minority of the people and interactions that happen and pretend it’s a real problem. You’d like to spend all your time pretending this is an issue because you are either stupid, ignorant, or both. You like to cast blame and make excuses for failure. Unfortunately for you, if you fail in America today you got their all by yourself. If you rob a store or attack a person and get killed for your trouble, its all your fault that your chickens came home to roost ;D. I hope you understand but it’s unlikely because no gauge or caliber of truth fired at the hull of your own stupidity and victim complex could make a dent. America in 2017 has a cancer growing in its name is victim mentality

        Arguing with liberals is like arguing with Jihadists. To understand their perception of the world and others, you have to first understand that Marxist progressives are cult members, and that for them their belief system is faith.

        Like Jihadis, they don’t care what you think, or believe, or about reality in general. Basically, if we will not believe as they do, our very existence in an anathema to them. They hate us and want us dead.

        In their small hateful world, there is no room for dialog, or competing ideologies. In their minds anyone who disagrees with them must be labeled as racist, and speech which does not agree with their dogma must be shouted down, or beaten down – silenced at any cost.

        They are tyrants who will ultimately use any tool at their disposal to dominate, subordinate, and subjugate the free will of others to their purposes.

        Our founders had their own experiences with tyrants and tyranny and enshrined the 2nd Amendment in the US Constitution as a means of defense against tyrants and tyranny.
