    Is the U.S. really 'dying of whiteness'? Are gun rights really just about the racial hierarchy? Who does get to carry a gun in public?

    Is life worth living if you can't be offended by whiteness and guns?

    These people are triggered happy.

    Many whites are afraid of people of color, and that is why they want their guns.

    “Do not go gentle in to that good night.

    Rage, Rage at the dying of the white.”

    Our rightwing finally makes sense to me.

    In fact, Blacks suffered 54% of all firearm homicides in 2009. Given that most people are killed by people they know, that would imply that Blacks are guilty of most firearm homicides. Don't see how this is a problem of 'whiteness'.

    Nah. Racism is at the heart of abortion rights. Democrats are still enraged that we took away their slaves and their segregation. Blacks are escaping the Democrats' welfare poverty shackles. Abortion is all that's left.

    The 2nd Amendment is at the heart of the gun debate. Democrats undermining the background check system is at the heart of the gun debate. Racism is not a factor.

    To tell the truth, Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was also a proponent of eugenics. Given who the clients of Planned Parenthood are, it also opens her to charges of racism. Given that the Dems support Planned Parenthood, the same is implied about them.

    Look at the chart below. Bear in mind that whites comprise 48% of our population, blacks about 13%. Thus the 13% of the population that is black accounts for about 72% of the interracial homicides.
    Figure the odds, calculate the levels of risk here. Around 7 to 1 that a white person is killed by a black person rather than vice versa. Nothing like doing your homework before you engage your mouth and put your foot in it.

    Yep, blacks are defending themselves more from lawless whites.

    90% of African Americans are killed by other blacks using hand guns they cannot legally possess either because they are younger than 21 or because they have a previous felony conviction. They frquently live in areas with very strict gun laws and the guns are often stolen or purchased on the black market. As has been repeatedly pointed out when you outlaw guns only outlaws will have guns. And that's bad for the rest of us.

    You have anything concrete to back up that claim?
