Former President Barack Obama tearing up while answering a question about what can be done to reduce gun violence. “We know that we can’t stop every act of violence. But what if we tried to stop even one?” the former president responded.

It is not too hard to find a story today about the relationship between the African-American community and guns. Typically, these stories paint a complicated and often inaccurate view of the role guns play in the lives of people of color.


For example, it was recently reported that a 15-year-old African-American boy was shot and killed May 6 by San Diego Police responding to a 911 call. The teenager allegedly pointed a BB gun at the police when they arrived. The police stated that the teenager who was shot made the original 911 call. In a separate report, a drunken gunman opened fire at an apartment pool in San Diego on April 30, targeting and killing African-Americans and a Hispanic. Yet, in another report, Austin police shot and killed a 24-year-old African-American man that is alleged to have fired at the police officers.

The gun problem in this country is not limited to the Black communities.
The media focus is on the Black community, as whites carry out mass shootings in schools, churches, theatres, killing entire family members, etc.

    Sep 28, 2013 ... This pro-white bias in regard to gun-ownership is both unfair and highly ... assuming that white people with guns are somehow less dangerous.

Guns and race: The different worlds of black and white Americans
