  1. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/24/opinion/second-amendment-slavery-james-madison.html ...the principal instrument for slave control was the militia. In the main, the South had refused to commit her militias to the war against the British during the American Revolution out of fear that, if the militias departed, slaves would revolt. But while the militias were effective at slave control, they had proved themselves unequal to the task of fighting a professional army. Bunker Hill was the last militia victory during the Revolution. The Continental Army (aided by the French Navy) won the war.
  2. lol @ you calling me out in the thread title. I think I reply to something like .00000000000001% of your posts but I'm in your head like a goddamned squatter.
  3. You're misstating their position. As a practical matter, yes, they need guns to fight off white racists. Killer Mike has been vocal in the same way -- but he also supports common sense gun reform so long as it applies equally across all races. the problem is that 2A has been used in the past to keep black people down. The NRA, and most 2A supporters throughout history, have been white racists.
  4. No, most gun violence victims are black and brown, in major cities. They could be protected by smart gun legislation, but the white assholes in power who use the NRA as a shield support their continued massacre. As do you.
  5. Too bad America does not. The 2nd Amendment was created in no small part to help white slave owners capture runaway slaves. You use a racist amendment's history to post-hoc justify endless massacres today.
  6. This was literally the position of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, FYI. Hope you don't use them to justify the existence of the 2nd Amendment.
  7. If I feel like it. Either way, enjoy explaining to the Pac-12 board why you banned me there for something I did here.
  8. If you're asking whether I know the difference between governing a nation and governing a message board, I do. You should direct that remark to the people saying I owe @mugtang my fealty merely because he makes money off of this board.
  9. You really do sound like the people who say even black people shouldn't say it. You're a snowflake. Or worse, you're playing one now in dishonest fashion. Go Goldwater!!
  10. If you're going to pull that shit with the Pac-12 board and ban me for something I say here, you may as well shut it down. We actually won't care. If fascism is your form of rule, fine. But be honest and go full bore with it.
  11. Name the incorrect statement in my post. Someone who starts a for-profit business is not doing it for my benefit. That shit's ridiculous.
  12. voter ID, objecting to any form of gun control, opposing reparations, etc.
  13. He created a for-profit venture and therefore I need to worship the ground he walks on? Dude, +++++ you. Someone starting a business I frequent is not doing a favor for me.
  14. It stopped after he did it about 15 times. Him and the cowboy douche. I referred to some shit he voluntarily supplied on this board. Hardly the same thing, your "cuz I said so" remark notwithstanding. And I'm sure you know it's +++++ing bullshit to apply some behavior on this board to the other. But you wanna throw your considerable weight around, so...
  15. Cool, you saw a lot of black people, totally explains your support for policies that destroy black people's lives in the U.S.
  16. Is that what my post advocated for? Call me crazy, but if you have meth, an illegal firearm, and you make bombs, you should -- at minimum -- not be parenting.
