|Colion Noir -- here to make the NRA and Conservatism Inc.'s push for gun-rights respectable|
Without a black individual at the front of the party line, any cause or movement runs the risk of being immediately labeled 'racist' and not inclusive; thus, illegitimate.
Such is the case with the battle for the 2nd Amendment and the fight against gun control. The National Rifle Association (NRA) has thrown up the white flag in its crusade for gun rights and found a black face to bring legitimacy to the cause of defending the 2nd Amendment -- Colion Noir.
Yes, before Colion Noir came to grace the NRA and gun rights enthusiasts with his noticeably black presence, the 2nd Amendment was basically an invalid right. But luckily, hope has been found [The NRA Is Unveiling a New Pro-Gun Contributor — and You Might Be a Little Surprised, The Blaze, 3-1-13]:
The media is going to have a hard time stereotyping the National Rifle Association (NRA) after the organization just announced its latest contributor to NRA News.
TheBlaze was tipped off to the announcement and introduction of the man who calls himself an “urban gun enthusiast,” Colion Noir.
Noir — a young, enthusiastic gun supporter that wears baseball hats and t-shirts — has somewhat of a cult following on social media. His Facebook page, which has over 25,000 likes, is riddled with fans and comments and he has 174 videos on YouTube where he breaks down the latest gun arguments in simple-to-understand terms, reviews gun-related equipment, and even shows off at the range.
“Just A normal guys perspective of concealed carry, guns, 2nd Amendment and the Law,” his profile says. And on Friday morning, he’ll officially be taking that perspective to NRA News. TheBlaze obtained the video announcement that introduced Noir late Friday morning to an even larger section of the gun community (see below for the YouTube video).
An "urban gun enthusiasts" is exactly what the 2nd Amendment crowd needs to finally gain legitimacy in defending their right to be armed; I mean, before this earth-shattering announcement by the NRA, all you had were a bunch of boring white people (primarily white men) defending the right to bear arms.A source close to the NRA tells TheBlaze that the video announcement is a teaser for series of longer videos in which Noir will tackle all things guns using his unique style. He’s also the first in a series of diverse commentators that will be making their voices heard on NRANews.com.
How passe and irrevelant!
Over at Northeastshooters.com, a popular forum for gun-rights enthusiasts, the announcement that Mr. Noir - an 'Urban Gun Enthusiasts' - had decided to add the necessary color to the 2nd Amendent crowd was greeted with these revealing posts:
Mikem317: Colion Noir needs to run for office.
PaulD: I have a man crush on that guy (no homo).
I'd love to see him go on Piers Morgan's show.
DoctorBossman: This is the kind of spokesperson we as gun owners need... in fact we as a nation based on the Constitution needs. Eloquent, intelligent, media savvy. It helps that he doesn't look like a stuffy suited politician.
Hallelujah and pass the ammunition! Mr. Colion Noir is here to save the day and ensure your right to concealed-carry is never, ever again disturbed.
Then again, the comments by the Northeastshooters.com forum members are quite disturbing, but such is the extent of political dialogue in a nation governed by BRA -- where all moral authority has been transferred to black people.
|The only way to defend the 2nd Amendment -- call gun control 'racist'... Thank God Colion Noir deflects criticism of the NRA and Conservatism Inc.!|
This is why a non-entity like Star Parker is even listened too, when this long-time junkie turned Conservative Inc. superstar speaks from on high, dispensing her black wisdom to the masses [Star Parker: Blacks Who Back Gun Control Need to Study History of Slavery and Jim Crow, CNSnews.com, 2-22-13].
No offense to Mr. Noir or Ms. Parker, but gun control in majority black communities and cities makes sense if you want to keep businesses opened and neighborhoods populated by the kind of people with the purchasing/earning power to provide a solid base.
In essence, high rates of black gun crime drives away white people, hence why white liberals might want to keep inner-cities free of guns (black people will use them, making said inner-city neighborhoods untenable for putting down roots).
Let's check out Memphis first [Black, White, and Dead: Most of the murders in Memphis are cases of "black-on-black" crime., July 20, 2006, Memphis Flyer]:
African Americans have the highest chances of being murdered in Memphis, according to current homicide statistics. Their attackers are most likely to be black, as well.
Eighty-eight percent of all homicide victims are black. Of those, the Memphis Police Department (MPD) classifies 64 percent of them as "black-on-black" crimes.
However, except in cases in which the attackers are unknown, all African-American homicides were committed by African Americans.
"This is a majority-black city, and if you look at the crime patterns, they present a perfect overlay of the most disadvantaged neighborhoods in the community," said Mike Heidingsfield, president of the Memphis Shelby Crime Commission. "Demographics are clearly at work."
According to 2000 U.S. Census data, Memphis' population is 61.1 percent black, 33.4 percent white, 2.9 percent Hispanic, and 2.4 percent Asian.
Sixty-five of the 87 murders through June 15th were "black on black." One was "black on white"; five were "white on white"; and one was "Hispanic on white." Fifteen are unclassified because the suspect is unknown.
Last week, MPD began targeting high-crime neighborhoods. Though police are not releasing specifics about those areas, an MPD public information officer confirmed they are mostly African-American neighborhoods.
MPD homicide director Joe Scott said that lifestyle, gang activity, and involvement in other criminal behavior are the leading reasons people end up as murder victims, regardless of race. But where a person lives can play a part.What about Philadelphia? [Philadelphia: The Epicenter of Black-On-Black Violence, 12-31-11, International Business Times]:
While rates of violent crime, including murder, have been steadily declining in the United State as over the past ten to fifteen, the city of Philadelphia, Pa., remains a particularly dangerous place.
According to data from its own police department, Philadelphia has the highest murder rate of the nation's ten largest cities – by a wide margin.
A closer examination of Philadelphia's murder data indicates that the killings overwhelmingly involve its black population. Philadelphia police data revealed that in the first half of 2011 an astounding 84 percent of homicide victims were black (as were virtually all of their killers). In 2010, 79.1 percent of murder victims were black.
This proportion has remained steady over the past few years. From 2007-2010, about 79 percent of murder victims in Philadelphia were black. (These figures apparently include Hispanics of African descent, since Philadelphia police do not classify Spanish-speaking people as a separate racial classification).
However, blacks only account for about 43 percent of the city's population (as of 2010).
Indeed, a recent study by the Philadelphia Police Department paints a very grim, depressing and frightening picture of the lives of poor black people in the city.
Between 2007-2010, 91.3 percent of murder victims under the age of 18 in Philadelphia were black (almost all of whom were male). Almost all those who killed them were also young black men.
In other words, young black men are murdering their own kind at an astonishing rate.
Many observers have weighed in on the unrelenting violence in Philadelphia’s black community.
Bruce Cawley, a prominent black businessman, told Reuters a few years ago: Slavery, at this late time, is no longer an acceptable excuse.”No one ever talks about the consequences of black dysfunction -- i.e., what happens to a neighborhood, community, or city when black crime (primarily with guns) becomes such a threat to both citizens and the business community that the former moves else where and the latter close up shop because security concerns cut in to profit margins.
St. Louis (49 percent black, 43 percent white) is seeing a "hollowing out" of its core inner-city, with whites fleeing what can only be called the 21st version of the 'black death' [ St. Louis Murder Rate on Pace With Last Year; Blacks Disproportionately Impacted, River Front Times, 11-4-11]:
After trending slightly higher for much of 2011, the St. Louis murder rate last week did something it hasn't done all year: pull into an exact tie with the number of people killed in 2010.Chicago, Baltimore, New York , Washington D.C., Birmingham, Atlanta, Dallas, and New Orleans... all similar stories... black people with guns are the only individuals using them for the majority of the murders, violent crime, and theft.
Through October 27, St. Louis police categorized 103 deaths this year as homicides. The number was the exact same on October 27, 2010. That means St. Louis is on pace to have 144 murders in 2011 -- the same as in 2010. Roughly an equal number of victims (143) were killed in 2009 following a particularly blood 2008 when 167 people died at the hands of another in St. Louis.
So, of the homicides this year, who's getting killed? The police department provides some startling statistics for that.
Of the 103 murders this year, 90 of the victims have been African-American. Ten have been white. Other races fill in the balance. Another way of looking at those numbers: If you're black in St. Louis, you're nine times more likely this year to be murdered than if you're white.*
The most likely person to die on the streets of St. Louis is a black male between the ages of 25-29. Men in this category have accounted for 15 murders this year (or 14 percent of all homicides). Take black men between the ages of 20 and 40 out of the equation entirely, and the murder rate in St. Louis so far this year would plummet by nearly half -- to just 53 homicides.
Perhaps even more disturbing than the statistics involving race, is that St. Louis police have so far cleared (brought a case to the Circuit Attorney's Office) just 43 of this year's murder. And, not surprisingly perhaps, 89 of the murders this year (86 percent) involved a gun.
What about Milwaukee, a city of 597,000+ (40% black, 37% white), offers an illuminating picture into black gun violence/crime. Courtesy of the Milwaukee Homicide Review Commission's 2011 report, we learn this:
1. The total number of 2011 homicides was 86, down 9% from 2010 (95 homicide victims).Wow.
2. The homicide rate was 14.5 per 100,000 residents and the nonfatal shooting rate was 79.5 per 100,000 residents.
3. The homicide rate per Black residents is 27.9 per 100,000 compared to 9.7 per 100,000 Latino residents and 1.7 per 100,000 White residents.
4. The number of 2011 homicides decreased 30% compared to 2005 but increased 21% compared to 2008.
5. The total number of 2011 nonfatal shootings was 473, up 18% from 2010 (400 shooting victims).
6. The number of nonfatal shootings decreased 23% compared to 2006.
7. The number of nonfatal shooting victims decreased each year from 2007-2010 but increased in 2011.
8. The vast majority of homicides and nonfatal shootings took place in lower socioeconomic neighborhoods.
9. 53% of all 2011 homicides and 61% of all 2011 nonfatal shootings occurred in Police Districts 3 and 5.
10. The majority of homicide victims were Black (81% or 70 out of 86) and 72% (or 62 out of 86) of homicide victims were Black males. A similar trend was found for nonfatal shooting victims.
But don't worry, Colion Noir is here to defend gun rights and make the (almost 100% likely) white men at Northeastshooters.com and NRA donors swoon with his YouTube videos and give Conservatism Inc. gatekeepers fully erect boners -- finally, a black person to validate the 2nd Amendment cause!
A cursory glance at the conditions of majority black cities in America shows the true cause of both violence and the immediate nature of its decline -- black people.
More to the point -- disarming black people in a city like St. Louis, Memphis, Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta, Birmingham, New Orleans, and Baltimore might attract non-black people to move to these cities and offer the one thing missing from these black communities -- stability.
And stability would bring safe streets, which breeds commerce, and finally -- a tax base.
That the NRA and Conservatism Inc. must resort to rolling out the hilariously - and stereotypically - black Colion Noir to add legitimacy to the protection of the 2nd Amendment (and shelter the movement from calls of 'racist') is a clear indicator that this nation deserves the harshest death imaginable.
Any sane movement would be trying to pass laws restricting black peoples ability to own weapons, thus immediately making many inner-cities safe overnight.
There's a reason the GOP and conservatives are known as the Stupid Party though...
