Gun Control & Historical Racism
As Black Americans we must realize that gun control laws, from a historical perspective, serve one purpose, to keep us vulnerable and more easily oppressed. This is not conjecture or rhetoric, it is easily documented fact.
Join us, Alex Primo and Asha Zuri, Thursday October 8th at 9 PM EST as we explore the way America sought to disarm Melanated individuals across the land as part of a ruthless plot to control, intimidate, and in many cases murder innocent slaves and freed men alike.
Brendan O’Neill of the Guardian notes:
Throughout the 1800's, states passed gun-control laws that were fundamentally racist. So, panicked by the prospect of more black rebellions against white landowners, the North Carolina Supreme Court passed a statute in 1840 that said: “If any free negro, mulatto, or free person of color shall wear or carry about his or her person, or keep in his or her house, any shotgun, musket, rifle, pistol, sword, dagger or bowie-knife… he or she shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and may be indicted therefore.”
In 1941, a judge in Florida’s Supreme Court called the laws into question when he overturned the conviction of a black man for carrying a handgun without a permit. He overturned the conviction, he said, because this law “was passed for the purpose of disarming the negro laborers … and to give the white citizens in sparsely settled areas a better feeling of security. The statute was never intended to be applied to the white population and in practice has never been so applied.”
All of this plus brother Dennis Jefferson will be dropping by with another fantastic episode of Healthy Matters.

MENTAL DIALOGUE is the RETURN OF INTELLIGENT RADIO as we push the envelope on the QUESTIONS AMERICA'S AFRAID TO ASK. This Saturday (Oct 10) 10am-12noon EST, BLACK SOCRATES and co-host CHRISTY GAYNELL explore GUN CONTROL in America. After the mass shooting in Oregon is BARACK OBAMA'S call for stricter GUN CONTROL laws warranted or just a tactic for the GOVERNMENT to disarm its citizens? Should we ban automatic weapons, or does such a ban go against the spirit of the 2nd Ammendment only to leave good citizens unprotected from not only criminals, but the GOVERNMENT itself? At the top of the 2nd hour for the MONEY & POWER 15 (11:00-11:15am EST), we bring on commodities trading advisor, MICHAEL SUTTLAR, to discuss the benefits of parents taking out LIFE INSURANCE, especially on BLACK CHILDREN in places like CHICAGO, DETROIT, PHILADEPHIA, and any urban metro area with a high rate of GUN VIOLENCE. "ALL I ASK IS THAT YOU THINK"
On this October 4th edition of Team Liberty Radio, we will be discussing Gun Control In America. In the aftermath of the shooting at the community college in Oregon, it is a time to take a look at the Gun Control issue. Also we will discussing the Syria issue and Russia's Response. Join us live at 6pm for your weekly dose of Truth.
