    That is why it took so long for the civil rights act to pass.

    That is why it took women so long to get the right to vote.

    That is why the KKK was formed.

    That is why the NRA was formed.

    Earlier Crash claimed:



    Do you agree with his statement?
    Please point out where this is the case for the NRA. Here is a link to the NRA website where it describes its founding:

    https://www.nrahq.org/history.asp

    Dismayed by the lack of marksmanship shown by their troops, Union veterans Col. William C. Church and Gen. George Wingate formed the National Rifle Association in 1871. The primary goal of the association would be to "promote and encourage rifle shooting on a scientific basis," according to a magazine editorial written by Church.
    After being granted a charter by the state of New York on November 17, 1871, the NRA was founded. Civil War Gen. Ambrose Burnside, who was also the former governor of Rhode Island and a U.S. Senator, became the fledgling NRA's first president.

    An important facet of the NRA's creation was the development of a practice ground. In 1872, with financial help from New York state, a site on Long Island, the Creed Farm, was purchased for the purpose of building a rifle range. Named Creedmoor, the range opened a year later, and it was there that the first annual matches were held.

    Political opposition to the promotion of marksmanship in New York forced the NRA to find a new home for its range. In 1892, Creedmoor was deeded back to the state and NRA's matches moved to Sea Girt, New Jersey.

      My worst jump story:
      My 13th jump was on the 13th day of the month, aircraft number 013.
      As recorded on my DA Form 1307 Individual Jump Log.
      No lie.

        Yes, that is the source, as I linked, for my quote on the founding of the NRA. Waiting for someone to point out where it was founded to protect Black gun ownership in the south.

          1. More Republicans voted in favor of the Civil Rights Act than Democrats
          In the 1960s, Congress was divided on civil rights issues -- but not necessarily along party lines.




          5. A segregationist congressman's attempt to kill the bill backfired
          Virginia's Democratic Rep. Howard W. Smith was a staunch segregationist and strongly opposed the Civil Rights Act.
          Smith, who was chairman of the House Rules Committee, came up with many tactics to discourage the passage of the bill's Title VII, which would outlaw employment discrimination because of race, color, religion or national origin.

          When Smith added the word "sex," the House reportedly laughed out loud. The ploy was Smith's attempt to quash support among the chamber's male chauvinists on the grounds that the bill would protect women's rights in the workplace, according to Clay Risen in his book "The Bill of the Century."

          Why do you think the GOP has lost the black vote each Presidential election since 1932?

                      I haven't seen the show since I was a kid, and it's cheesiness isn't the point.

                      As I've said, we have a small, but extremely vocal minority that is dictating to the majority. Your side is really stretching now. The Dukes of Hazard is a symbol of hate?

                          Dictation requires force or the threat of force. If they didn't change the show, what would this vocal minority do? Shout louder?

                          Isn't that just democracy and the 1st amendment at work?

                              • I have no problem with the flag flying on private property, but it should not fly on government property unless in very certain circumstances such as notable Civil War Sites. But even then...

                                The thing is that the flag is one big middle finger to African-Americans. It's been proudly flown by Slave Owning Confederates, White Reconstruction-Era Terrorists, the KKK, Jim Crow-era Governments, Dixiecrats and people like Roof.

                                It's a veritable 'lost cause' to try and separate the 'heritage' of the flag from this.
