    "Seem to be"....

    :eyebrow:

    I see a lot more white folks doing it around here, but then, there are a lot more white folks. I obviously can't comment on your locale.

    Went out to walk my dog a while ago and saw the proof yet again. Individual white guys fishing, a few couples walking...and big groups of black folks crowded together and fishing off the boat docks. I was going to suggest you are full of it, but then I looked up the demographics for East Lansing and saw that you happen to live in a town that doesn't have enough black people to violate the rules against large gatherings.

    Yep, pretty white - even when the students are in town. Lansing is a bit more diverse, but still pretty white overall.

    You’d see me doing most of those things, though.

    We are different (Blacks & Whites). We, as a group, don’t seem to crave adrenaline spikes like you guys do. I, for whatever reasons, rather relish anything that is simultaneously intellectually and physically challenging.

    I think the percentages of Blacks indulging in “adrenaline flooding” recreation is low just as you’ve observed.

    There are many differences that is taboo to discuss but I find them rather interesting and love the differences between ALL the races.

    Here is something else you may not know about Blacks: we are much more distrustful of doctors, authority or government (despite voting for Big Government; odd that).

    I don’t know a single one of my friends who would have participated in that survey - nor would I.

    I would wonder what they would do with the data, as would every single one of my friends here in South Louisiana and in Michigan.

    The numbers are higher; much higher. Same with Black gun owners.

    Ok then, So what are they (the higher numbers)? As far as trust of government, I'd easily believe black gun owners/hunters wouldn't have much trust of the government - just like white gun owners/hunters. A lot of the hunting & fishing information comes from licenses.

    Anecdotally, I don't see a lot of black hunters or (sport) shooters (actually I see more women in both of these categories); but I do see quite a few black fishermen.

    I’ve no idea what that number may be. It’s considered bad form to ask if a person has a firearm and how many. You know that. Anyone who asks me that I choose to stay the Hell away from them as do most people participating on this board.

    Suffice it to say just as NRA membership is no barometer to the number of gunowners neither is ANY poll.

    Sure I do, I gave the references. You doubt the references, but don’t offer anything other than your opinion.

    Yep. Close.

    That’s what I envision you to be as you aimlessly try to speak with authority.

    Figures don’t lie but Liars do figure.

    I love H. Ross Perot.

    Unless you’re a Black Sportsman what would you know FIRSTHAND???

    Not much.

    But go on and speak as “authority” on something you know little about. It makes you look silly.

    California party that violated stay-at-home order and drew around 400 comes to 'bad end' with 6 shot

    No pictures of the party so far, but you only have to read what happened and go look at 3500 Pioneer Dr., Bakersfield, CA on Google street view to put 2 and 2 together.

    If you don't want to bother with Google street view, this local story has video of the 'hood where the party happened.
    UPDATE: Around 400 people at party where 6 were shot, wounded in East Bakersfield; Nearly 100 casings recovered, sheriff’s office says

    I saw on the news a little while ago that Chinese folks are hating on black people there for not taking it seriously or practicing social distancing. Black folks in Africa still eat monkeys and bats amongst other bush meat. They insist Ebola is a hoax. Stupid is as stupid does.

    Oh good grief! The idiots all come out, and now the virus is racist! And the only way to stop it is to give minorities reparations! I can't stand the stupidity any longer.

    Further proof that Trump personally created this racist virus. . .

    The Democrats truly are the party of identity politics.
