Gun control originally for repressing blacks

69 posts in this topic

From the article:

[The history of gun control in America] was a constant pressure among white racists to keep guns out of the hands of African-Americans, because they would rise up and revolt.

***

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.

How times have changed!

But as for the white racist bit, at the time yes, but this does not explain the BLACK ON BLACK crimes today. They can`t blame the white racists of the past for "making" them shoot each other today!

Yes, but the point of the artlice based on research of a UCLA professor is that gun control in the USA is about repression of those at the bottom so those at the top can feel safe. Also that gun control was (and will be) applied unequally.

These days in the UK, they're almost the only people with them!

(Just another 'only whites can be racists' article) Nothing new there.

Not sure what you mean by those at the top?

I do see what you are saying about what the whites were doing back then, but today?

Well, naturally. Who would arm their slaves? Especially if they are being treated as most of them were back then.

bull crap.

it isn't whites that run coke and crack through the ghettos , i live next to them, for 20 years, the only white ppl there are the cops, or dopeheads. white dealers don't deal there, just like black dealers don't run coke in white clubs, and hoods. come and see for yourself. no one forces them to snort, neither white man nor blacks, but you still see it white mans fault?

so withe folks build projects, provided blacks, (yes blacks are majority who lives there), with highly subsidised housing, for 1\3 the price they would pay otherwise, and it is still whites man fault???

are you seriuos???? you sound like racist

as for schools, another bull crap, there are many schools around projects, again come here, and see for yourself.

why would you talk about something you have no idea about???

The question that has to be asked in these cases is: Where do the drugs come from? Of course do those people choose dealers that blend well with the environment.

What? cutting fundings only affected black people did it?

Are you saying the whites forced the coke and crack on the blacks?

Are you saying the whites forced the blacks to kill each other?

Are you saying the blacks did not have the brains to see what you allege the whites were doing to them?

I think you should rethink what you have just put here....if I was black I would be extremely offended that you think i was that backward to allow the white man to do this to me by force!!!

The white man can NOT be blamed for the black man to kill another black man.

White people also have killed other white folk, we would not blame the black man for that!

ps: peace.

If you do a little research on the subject you will find that Iron_lotus's CIA statement is accurate. The CIA have been smuggling drugs for years to fund themselves beyond thier budget. Why do you think American soldiers guard poppy fields after the taliban had virtually wiped poppies out?

its a good way to in a way paralyze a certain group of people, introduce a new drug to opprotunistic and starving individuals to sell amongst themselves to destroy them from the inside out.

edit: and my apologies oversword this is not what your topic was meant to be about.

i know al that.

so what? NO ONE forces them to snort smoke, or shot, NO ONE.

if you get hooked, DON"T BLAME NO ONE BUT YOUR SELF, not white man, not cia, not afgans.

they only exploit your weakness. not creating it.

they create supply, YOU (not literaly you) create demand.

sooo even though it was introduced by white men to an impovershed community who had no idea about the effects long term and short term of the drug its still their own fault, i could see that in todays day and age where most people are informed and educated enough about cocaine and crack, back then it was a different case.
