‘Can You Imagine a Group of Black Men Walking Around With Masks and Guns?’: Gun Rally Sparks Questions of Racism and Privilege

It’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and for several hours now countless mostly white, mostly male pro-gun, anti-gun control activists have been marching throughout the streets of Richmond, Virginia, claiming to merely be exercising their Second Amendment rights. Many appear to be dressed in military garb, including camouflage, masks, and donning various types of firearms over their shoulders or at their side.

Many online noted the reception from pro-gun advocates might be far different if the activists were Black instead of white, given the nation’s history – and that of Virginia.

One social media user asked, “Can you imagine a group of black men walking around with masks and guns?”

The article has a bunch of tweets and a few videos of the white mob with guns and the crowds.

    • Hello Nan. Yes. Then the rest of the want to be warriors who do not join the military would start popping off shots. A lot of people would be hurt or injured. That is if these guys could even aim and fire with out falling on their butts. Hugs
