What can your one gun do against multiple guns?

And before you go there....lol....black people don't hold the gun sideways like in movies. Or even if we do, the bullet still fly.

I would like to believe that, but as I interact with young people almost everyday(ages 18-24 primarily) they all claim that the protests are largely peaceful.


Problem is they obviously are not for certain elements. I was once a young person also. The difference between intelligence and wisdom is experience. Not trying to change the thread, but you need to objectively look at the real history of slavery. African slavery was controlled by the African elite who benefited from it. Make no mistake. We got some bad apples, and we are paying for it. Not racist, remember the love of my life and soul mate is of African decent. But real is real and it is painful. Houston, we have a problem.

There will never be an objective view or education on the topic of slavery. Why? Because the first thing you hear, is that it is evil. And I'm not denying that.

Well strangely the media is silent on the violence and sophisticated oppression of black people.

The media doesn't harp upon black unemployment, discrimination, mass incarceration (while white rapist and pedophiles are getting months in prison), race soldiers attacking black women, police found not guilty of shooting 13 year olds, etc.

African elite benefited from slavery...lol...where are the rich, advanced African countries?

Africa had never heard of chattel slavery where a human is legally considered less than human.

Certain African countries made the choice to work with the slave trade rather than become slaves. In return they were still colonized.

I have a tendency to agree as history has been malnulated, however certain telling objective information exists mainly from the academic black community who really does want to know their roots and their history. Like I say, I'm Irish n we have roots too. You just need to look for it.

It isn't even the manipulation of history. Simply the method of teaching history.

Assuming you consider forced labor as slavery my country(not all of the occupants, but a number) has been enslaved within the past 70-80 years. A relative was forcibly sent to a Siberian work camp in the USSR for five years.

Not really worth replying to. No one said rich African countries, what was said was certain African elite. They also interbreed with the European elite and formed alliences.

Who are the racists, again?


That makes exactly as much sense as a black person saying all white people are racists based on a video of a white person(s) attacking a black person.


These are the fruits of the controlled liberal media working for an administration that has been stoking racial tensions in this country for years. Get used to it.


Hey race pimp. You're trying to stoke racial tensions right now.

Caught the satire. I'm a former professional martial artist whom helped pay for his college education teaching PE classes at the universitiy I attended. The classes were taught on the basketball court we're our team played and was open to people watching from the stands. I made the mistake of seeing a person in the stands whom looked like a HS black friend. So I went over to say hi and pay my respects. Turns out to be mistaken identity and I apologized. Ended being called a devil, if he looked like me, he wasn't your friend, etc. ya, for real.

They do crap like this all the time, then want sympathy for being attacked for their race? Not happening! Act like a criminal, and people will look at you like you are one.

Nice. The problem with history is that they teach slavery is evil? This thread is really bringing out the best in people.

History disagrees with you.

Slavery is still alive and well in many pars of africa to this day, particularly in muslim controlled areas.

I agree. You've completely failed to understand my point. Which frankly, does not surprise me.

For anyone who genuinely wants to educate themselves about slavery.

So they should have stopped exercising their right to assembly and speech because of the way others used their rights...but took it too far?

That's like saying gun owners should give up their arms because some idiot went on a shooting spree.


Let me say I agree with you and others that there were peaceful protestors, and these criminals took over.

However, their rights to peaceful protest end when violence erupts.

For gods sake, someone in the crowd was shot! What was the police and the rest of us to say "Move the body to the side please so the peaceful protestors can keep going".

Unfortunately, when the violence starts and property and innocent people are getting hurt, the protestors have to stop fro that night in that location.

I have found more often then not , being a veteran of war and fire fights myself, that when the person holding a gun (your gang bangers in this instance) starts receiving fire , they arent as brave or as disciplined as they like to come off....

Most CC carriers are avid shooters, and most states require them to be pretty adept at using their weapon.....

And if said person also has military experience, I dont expect the "gang bangers" holding weapons will be willing to be shot down so readily.....

So what can 1 gun do against multitudes? Take one or two of you down with them.....thats what.......

Who wants to volunteer first in that situation?

I'm exhausted, but because I must be awake anyways sure. The point was to study, or for others to study, the topic of slavery with a completely objective view or method. Now the only way for this to be possible is to leave any amount of emotion out of the subject. Calling it evil(and it is evil) is an emotional statement and is arguably subjective. Based on our social standards it is evil, but imagine morals were not a factor or did not exist and all that matters is economic prosperity of the system, then it is not evil(for that matter the idea of "evil" would not exist).

But that is not the case. I am NOT defending slavery.
