@WhitlockJason Your statement tht the NRA is the new KKK is the most pathetic piece of journalism I've ever seen. Guns don't kill-people do.—

Sports gets so much attention, and people tune out the real world, that I try to take advantage of the opportunity to talk about the real world when sports lends itself to that and try to open people’s eyes. You know, I did not go as far as I’d like to go because my thoughts on the NRA and America’s gun culture – I believe the NRA is the new KKK. And that the arming of so many black youths, uh, and loading up our community with drugs, and then just having an open shooting gallery, is the work of people who obviously don’t have our best interests [at heart].
So, according to Whitlock, not only is the NRA a racist organization, but it is actively arming young blacks and getting them hooked on drugs. Unbelievable.
Second Amendment supporters know that’s complete garbage and are taking Whitlock straight to the woodshed:
Heritage Foundation investigative reporter Lachlan Markay points out that the KKK was founded in part to disarm blacks:
“The KKK began as a gun-control organization. Before the Civil War, blacks were never allowed to own guns. During the Civil War, blacks kept guns for the first time – either they served in the Union army and they were allowed to keep their guns, or they buy guns on the open market where for the first time there’s hundreds of thousands of guns flooding the marketplace after the war ends. So they arm up because they know who they’re dealing with in the South. White racists do things like pass laws to disarm them, but that’s not really going to work. So they form these racist posses all over the South to go out at night in large groups to terrorize blacks and take those guns away. If blacks were disarmed, they couldn’t fight back.”
And several people remarked that the KKK has far more in common with Planned Parenthood, which provides for the abortions of countless unborn black children, than with the NRA:
Jason Whitlock accused the NRA of doing what Planned Parenthood is actually doing.—

Oddly enough, not a peep from Whitlock about that.
Exactly. Truth be damned.
