How The Civil Rights Movement Changed Black Gun Culture

 

 

 

” The subject of guns is a volatile one in the black community: a disproportionate number of black Americans are killed by firearms each year.

  But Nicholas Johnson, a law professor at Fordham University in New York City, says black Americans have a long, positive history with guns. Firearms, he says, helped black Americans escape slavery, defend their homes and fight for their freedom. It was only after the civil rights movement that the public attitude towards guns started to change.

  He explores the hidden relationship between African Americans and firearms in his book Negroes and the Gun: The Black Tradition of Arms.”

 

 

   Thanks to the BBC for bringing this to light . Along with the civil rights movement came the social programs aimed at aiding the black community , which in reality have done nothing but generate a culture of dependency on the government , a loss of self-esteem and a permanent democratic voting bloc .
