Armed Doesn't Mean Dangerous

https://www.washingtonpost.com/magazine/2021/05/03/black-gun-owners-postive-images/


Black gun owners are often portrayed negatively. One photographer set out to change that.


I'm sure a lot of white Trumpers will lose their shit over this article.

1. Dunno, but I think them with their guns is as stupid as the "stand your ground" idiots.

I don't walk around, living my life in fear of some imaginary intruder.

I also don't own a gun.

2. I looked at the article and have mixed reactions to it.

As a photographer the poses and facial expressions are aggressive which feeds into the 'scary black man' stereotype. There's enough of that without feeding white fear.

Beyond that people with guns, regardless of who they are, intimidate. That, as far as I can tell, is the entire purpose of carrying guns.

Regardless of intention this article does nothing to promote the feeling that black people (or any people) carrying guns is not frightening.

3. Your concern for the finer sensibilities of white racists is duly noted.
