The NRA stays consistently hypocritical in re: to guns and Black folks.

Black elected officials voicing their position with VIDEO:

Black, Gun-Owning Congressman Says The NRA Doesn’t Care About Black People



Quote
Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA), himself a gun owner, gave a passionate speech accusing the NRA of not carrying about the welfare of black people.
“The hypocrisy there is so blatant,” he said. “I always thought the NRA was not concerned about me. And I hunt and I fish and I own a gun. But the last few days have clarified it for me — that their Second Amendment concern is not a voice of concern for African Americans. And I just believe that we cannot give them a pass on not making a comment.”

THIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE CASE. THE NRA IS NOTHING MORE THAN AN EFFORT TO 'MAWA'.  :popcorn:
I'm an Army Civilian and former Soldier on the Army Team. I'm dedicated to my Army, Soldiers and Civilians. I will always support the mission. I provide stability and continuity during war and peace. I'll support and defend the Constitution and consider it an honor to serve our nation and my Army.

No competition...but I thank you for the observation.

That's why I have looked for other "Conservatives" (and succeeded in bringing one) to O-dan.  I was hoping for a higher level of intellect and more challenging discussions.

Unfortunately, y04 won't bring anyone and Olds..t knows no one and pretends his imaginary 'friends' read posts here.  If they do exist they are TOO AFRAID to join in.

The one Conservative I brought, stepped in it right away with a major misstatement of fact which she then tried to spin - before she ran away like Olds..t and y04 have made a career of doing.

Another who I invited apparently decided not to post anything even after our great Webmaster cleared the way for him to participate.  That would have been interesting because he and I are line Brothers.

Philando Castile’s Mother Blasts NRA Head for Staying Silent In Wake of Son’s Death

“He didn’t say anything because my son was Black."

“If he really cared about the good guys out here, he would have stood up for my son,” she told the New York Daily News “It’s about money. This country is run off money. Everybody wants a piece.

“My son was one of the good guys, but him being Black, obviously they didn’t see him as a good guy,” added Castile, who said she’s still “mad as hell.” “They’ve yet to say anything about my son.”

But,...I keep playing!!!

I take a different approach from many folks (on FB) who defriended people who supported #ErraticTrump.  I emailed two former neighbors (not my Friends on FB) and two current neighbors who were/are his supporters and challenged them.  No reply.

My approach is to engage, challenge and expose.  I have no delusions about changing their minds, but they're gonna KNOW they've been called out by someone who knows them.  No anonymity!!!!

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
