Am I wrong or just "politically incorrect"?Submitted by ecard71 on Wed, 04/03/2013 - 20:52
I decided to create this post in the hopes that a discussion, or better yet, a SOLUTION(S) would be found to something I find troubling and would like to see changed. I haven't seen "much" change in the last 40 years, yet the demographics certainly have. Only the latest reason for my bringing this up: http://www.dailypaul.com/280615/1000-plus-armed-protestors-r...
You know what really irks me to no end? Whenever I see one of these pro 2nd amendment rallies and I literally have to STRUGGLE to find a minority. It's like playing "find Waldo", -RIDICULOUS! It plays straight into the white stereotype redneck/hillbilly, hunter. WHY? According to this: http://www.city-data.com/races/races-Lansing-Michigan.html in 2009, Lansing was only 60% White. I'm pretty sure that number has dwindled since then. Where's the even representation for that? I guess affirmative action doesn't apply here(sarcasm)?
This is only 1 hour away from Detroit, yet more people couldn't be bothered to travel for this? Or better yet, hold one in Detroit? Oh right, will never happen. That's like asking to hold one in NYC. Never mind people, the 2nd amendment has NOTHING to do with your rights.
Am I wrong or just "politically incorrect" to POINT this out? A simple google image search of Occupy or Anti war-- never mind, I'll do it myself:
Do I have a point? What can be done to change/educate? Last time I checked, ALL of these issues should concern ALL Americans.
Rant over - if you must, bring on the down votes, but I hope you can also state why.
EDITED to add the 2 pics on the City of Lansing homepage (a little more diverse)
