“I think it's based on the notion that black people with guns are more dangerous than white people with guns.
It's like when Ronald Reagan was governor of California, he was in favor of gun control laws. Back then the worry was about the Black Panthers using guns to prevent government oppression.

“I think my youtube video would've been more entertaining when I started yelling at my kids like a howler monkey for breaking the tv! I sent this link to my mom to watch. She go a Wii Sports for Christmas and made sure everyone used the wrist strap. She won't let us walk on her hardwood floors wearing shoes because she is afraid it will scratch them, so when she sees the strap will break, everyone will have to stand in the next room to play it, or she will have my dad screwing Plexiglas to the entertainment center before the grandkids can play it!”
