>>6691>Show me some statistical evidence of this please. https://www.statista.com/statistics/585152/people-shot-to-death-by-us-police-by-race/>The police let Kyle Rittenhouse go after shooting innocent people BECAUSE he was white.
No, they let him go because they had no idea what was going on.
A stupid move on their part, they ought to have paid more attention. But, it's not all that shocking, as these are the same people who're letting rioters go unimpeded for days now, while they destroy people's livelihoods.>Black people could benefit from fire-arms for self defense. I'm not arguing against that.
Then you ought to see why black people, along side any minority, any religious group, any sexuality, any gender identity, would likewise find attraction towards firearms.
It's not just "racist white folk" as you seem to think.>The simple fact that someone COULD benefit from them does not mean they are the ones attracted to gun ownership in the current climate.
Likewise, your assumption of what people "COULD" be attracted to gun ownership doesn't mean it's actually representative of reality.
I've not seen any evidence for this idea. There's plenty of people of many different backgrounds attracted to the concept of firearm ownership. It's not solely racist white people, as you seem to think. That doesn't seem to be anything beyond your own prejudice speaking.>Are you black? Are you non-white? If you are not, then how would you see such evidence?
You can post something demonstrating your claim to be the case.
A study, for example. Statistical evidence. >It's more useful to listen to those claims than dismiss them based on the fact that you don't experience what a black person does. Of course you do not, unless you yourself are black.
So I should just listen and believe?
Is that a privilege only extended to black people, or should I 'listen and believe' the white nationalists as well?
Evidence is important. It distinguishes between worthless claims of personal bias and assumption, and actual, tangible, real world reality.
I do not care what you assume
black people experience. You are not "black people". You are a person. There are a lot of people in the world. Your claimed experiences are irrelevant, as that is ultimately anecdotal. Anecdotal evidence can be dismissed with anecdotal evidence.
You do not have to be black to see racism. If I'm at the gun range, and someone says "Get the fuck out of here you nigger" to a black gun owner trying to learn to shoot, I'm pretty sure I would be able to tell that racism is occurring.
I have never seen any
hostility in the gun community in regards to race or any other identity. It does not appear to exist.
I'm inclined to believe you assume
that there would be racism, because of your own personal prejudices.
