The end of African American history observance month 2020 is this week.
I’ve always been a fan of history. I don’t like what happened most of time. I don’t romanticize about it. I don’t even wish I was born earlier. I had enough drama in my own lifetime.
I’ve even made some history.
My friends from the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) asked me to do a little video to remind my American family of how far we’ve come and how far we have to still go.
Freedom to live as our Republic was intended is always under attack.
Most people don’t know I’ve been defending the right to keep and bear arms publicly since 1991. I am the founder of the first African American National Gun Club, the Tenth Cavalry. We had chapters in DC, Baltimore, NJ, Chicago and Georgia. I’ve helped launch several untraditional gun groups.
I was one of the champions for concealed carry reform nationally. I lobbied the US Congress and in the state legislatures of Virginia, Texas, South Carolina, Michigan, Maryland, and Wisconsin. I have been producing podcasts since 2007. The Black Man With A Gun Show podcast (2007- 2019) was one of the first pro-gun podcasts. I have voiced commercials for TV and traditional radio against racist gun laws before social media. I have been featured in four documentaries. I has authored several books. I’ve recently just written a couple of pieces for the USCCA.
But in December 2019 I decided to let the next generation have at it.
Well until requested to speak on this video.
I may be the best that ever did it and got away with it.
I'm still around if you need me though. Just send up the Black signal!
