When a white teenager named Steve Lohner was stopped by the police last month and refused to show his ID after carrying a loaded shotgun on the streets of Aurora, Colorado (the same city where a mass murderer killed 12 people and injured 70 others in a packed movie theater in July 2012), the teen walked away with nothing but a citation.
But when a 22-year-old black kid named John Crawford picked up a mere BB gun in a Walmart store in Dayton, Ohio last week, customers called the police, who then shot and killed him.
Here lies a racial disparity that’s difficult for honest people to ignore. How can black people openly carry a real gun when we can’t even pick up a BB gun in a store without arousing suspicion? The answer in America is that the Second Amendment doesn’t really apply to black people.

True, anyone who’s been paying attention knows this. The only time you can get gun control passed in this country is when politicians start seeing POC walking around freely with guns.
My tolerance for ppl has been nonexistent lately. I literally don’t give a fuck. You do or say ignorant shit and I’m chucking deuces. My life is too stressful to be dealing with any bullshit that I don’t have to. Off or online.
Why don’t white people understand the cracker is not the equivalent of Nigger.
Not have been
Never will be
remember when CNN did a segment that was like ” which is worse? the n-word or cracker?” and this comedian was like ” maybe the one you didn’t spell out
white people wanna talk about “respecting the dead” and “remembering them for the good they’ve done” until a black person gets killed and suddenly every bad thing from their past justifies murder
