A little good news in spite of the Zimmerman trial.

I moved here about 15 years ago. I am out in the country, I came from the city. One of the first things that happened when I moved here was I called a local store to get something. The guy picked up the phone and continued his conversation with somebody else before he started talking to me. What he said to the other person was the most racist thing I had heard in my life. And I have heard a lot more racist things from the local old timers since I moved here. If I was black, I would have left. But things are changing.
I was sitting in my building in town today. I was facing through the front window at an extreme angle, so I could only see a sliver of glass. There is a black beauty salon next door, and some of the locals were hanging out front smoking and chatting. Very normal.
I looked up for a second, and saw a gun. It was a buffed nickle looking thing with white grips. Maybe a taurus 9mm. It was in a black nylon holster with a thumb break. And this black guy was open carrying this flashy thing right out on main street.
He wasn't doing any kind of protest, he was just hanging out, talking to his friends about motorcycles, with a gun on his hip.
I was pretty impressed, and very pleased. Nobody cared much, and no police came flying up with their sirens screaming. Not long ago, the locals would have acted very differently.

So you saw a homie accidentally showing off his concealed nickel plated gat, and didn't call the police? What kind of white person are you?

The man can open carry and thereby has the right to do so. He is as lawfully (and morally) right to be able to defend his life and family as the next person, and is following the law. I see no reason that any law abiding black citizen should be denied the RCBA.

I have read that some of the Confederacy's best sharpshooters (snipers) were black, and many blacks served armed positions throughout the war on both sides.

Times change, but the reasons things were done differently in the past has no bearing on today. Different times, different laws, different world.

He said he is from "out in the country." Everyone is a "homie" out there, even if they are pigmentally challenged. If it is not broken; we rednecks don't fix it. It is not concealed if he is showing it to others. If they don't screw with your horses, your pick-up, or your dog, leave them alone.
