All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


What's the Point?

“We’re going to study law,” he said. “What our rights are. We also want to be looking at our constitutional rights in carrying weapons. All police encounters need to be recorded. It’s unfortunate it has to be that way. But it has to be that way.”
That's worked so well before.  I mean that remark sincerely.  What worked, and how well, depends on what your agenda is. 

I'm of two minds on this.  On a surface level I think law abiding blacks (and everyone) should have guns.  They can do that now, so there isn't any big story in telling people to get a CCW permit.  Lew Rockwell has been encouraging people to video the police for years.  So why make a big deal out of it now?

To learn that answer we need to go back to 1966.  What happened in 66 that matters today?  Glad you asked.
From Wikipedia
The Black Panther Party or BPP (originally the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense) was a revolutionary black nationalist and socialist organization active in the United States from 1966 until 1982, with its only international chapter operating in Algeria from 1969 until 1972.
Initially, the Black Panther Party's core practice was its armed citizens' patrols to monitor the behavior of police officers and challenge police brutality. In 1969, community social programs became a core activity of party members. The Black Panther Party instituted a variety of community social programs, most extensively the Free Breakfast for Children Programs, and community health clinics.
Go ahead and read the Wiki on the Black Panthers its sympathetic to the organization but informative.  One of the BIG and I mean HUGE things the BPP did was encourage armed "observation" of the police.  They wanted and sometimes organized large militant mobs of blacks with guns who "interacted" with white cops (most cops in the 60's were white).

Does that sound similar to what's happening today?

So what was the result of this brave new way of checking white power?

Gun Control Act of 1968

That's right, when blacks start talking about roaming the streets in armed mobs (something any racial group is legally able to do) Democrats (historically the party of slavery and racism) freak out and start passing laws to keep things in check.

Don't just take my word on that.

Gun Control Timeline

BTW I picked a liberal website for that link.  Notice any patterns?  Every time it looks like blacks are going to get and carry guns there is enough fear in white America that a law will get passed to try to keep everyone "safer".

The NAACP has traditionally been an anti-gun organization.  Why the sudden change, or have they really changed?

What are we going to do?  We are quickly moving towards a white minority in America with combined browns and blacks being a majority.  Are blacks really afraid of whites or is it something else?

    Interesting post here. The BPP might have spent it's first 15 minutes on genuine good intentions, but after that, it all went south. I can't remember a time when the BPP ever represented anything good when it came to the rest of society.

    As to being a white minority, I agree that is coming in the future. Sad thing is, we will be a minority status, but if you think we will get the same breaks as the blacks are right now, you need to rethink that notion fast. It will be minority status without all the perks.

    From what I have been reading the last several months, I don't think the blacks and browns will unite against the white community Res. At least not in the beginning. I think the white community has more in common with the Hispanics than they do with the blacks. Hispanics are willing to work and pay their way for the most part, while a large segment of blacks seem to be content with feeding at the government trough, generation after generation.

    So if anything, I think we might be the bystanders in gang warfare, the participants being the black and the Hispanic gangs and other youth.
