Existing While Black

While this comic might take some liberties for comic effect, it is scary how many people view behaviors far differently depending on the skin color of the person doing the behavior. Even people who aren’t particularly racist. For example, if you saw a black person carrying a hunting rifle around in an urban environment, would it make you more concerned that if a white person was doing the same thing?

Heck, even the NRA supported gun control (and even wrote some of the federal gun control laws) when the Black Panthers started packing.

    I don’t think so, sounds quite real.

    No need for “ifs…” Take a look around on the internet for what was happening at the Cliven Bundy ranch earlier in the year. Hint: The majority of the people with the guns are NOT members of the law enforcement community.
