Wearing a button reading “Guns Save Lives,” the man blasted Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s anti-gun legislation, and slammed the media’s distortion of rally attendees.
“Every news piece you’ve seen this weekend have brought up the issue of race, as though it’s nothing but white rednecks and hillbillies out here who care for the Second Amendment,” the man stated.
“When actually black Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, Americans in general care about the Second Amendment.”
“I work at a gun store part time and I can’t tell you the number of customers I see of all races, all colors, all creeds who care about the Second Amendment and who just want to peaceably live their lives, enjoy their rights and the Second Amendment.”
“Big media, mainstream media be damned,” he added. “If you take a good look at me, you can see I’m a black American and all I’m out here for is to enjoy my Second Amendment rights. That’s why I’m here.”
In a different interview, another African American rally attendee also pushed back against the media’s racist stereotypes.
