I'm pretty sure I am.

The color of a persons skin gives me an immediate impression of a person, just like how they dress, where they live, what they do for a living, how they speak, what they believe, where (and if) they worship, their education level, their weight, their age, whether they are gay or straight, who they vote for, etc.

I can't help it, I'm a flawed human being.

So when I see a black man, or a gay man, or a liberal, or someone "not like me" I immediately make assumptions based upon what the pervasive stereotype portrayed by the media (not just press media, but ALL media including social and entertainment kind) and base my opinion on people I do not know on what observation and experience tells me to expect.

For example....I know many people of other ethnicity, have worked with many more. With few exceptions, a black man is an Obama supporter or at best a moderate who favors the Democratic party and tends to support the vast majority of their positions.

As a reasonably intelligent and rational person, I know that is not necessary accurate and does not represent the majority of how black Americans (in particular) position themselves politically, but experience and--to be accurate--conditioning by the media justifies and reinforces my pre-conceived notions. For right or wrong.

So, I (and no doubt many others) see a black man who is an avid gun rights supporter, and pretty much follows the stance of the NRA it IS jarring--because it is not expected. It's not expected, because--being honest here--blacks in America are VERY clustered, and they tend to be clustered in the liberal strongholds of America...which also helps to solidify those pre-conceived notions mentioned above.

Personally, I don't like the fact that I look at a black man, and immediately think of them as being a liberal--but it's the truth, I can't help it. Its so bad in fact, that we had a salesman come to our house (a black guy) who was a VERY good salesman, and as he's getting a feel for us I thought he was sizing us up and making comments to 'get on my side', and some of that was criticizing Obama and making comments favoring those with conservative social and religious values. In short, I thought he was 'all talk' until he kept talking...only to find out that not only is he conservative, he is VERY conservative, and no doubt further right that I am and outright anti-Obama.

But on the flip side, I work with a latina woman who is your typical latina democrat and fits every single stereotype about your latina liberal democrat.

So yes....it does matter that the NRA chose a black man as a spokesman, but it's for the right reasons--there ARE black men who are pro-gun advocates, and are just as outraged as your stereotypical white racist NRA member that the government wants to take your guns. He gives these black men (and by extension other minorities) a voice to say "Hey, the NRA isn't just for white people" and speak on their behalf.

It is also important, because it shows the left that it's not just angry old white people who care about gun rights...and it also shows the more moderate people that the left *really* isn't all that tolerant or accepting of any minority who takes any non-left opinion, what with the comments of "house nigger" and "token minority" that they are the FIRST to spew.

I know his hats are kind of staple in his videos but I hope that if he continues being the NRA's token black guy he takes his hat off. For some reason that bugged me in this video, that his eyes were hidden for the most part by his hat.


No clue what the hell brought that about but I bid ye all good day....

His eyes are only hidden because of the camera angle and lighting. I kind of like his mutliple hats that he wears (Especially the Phillies hat Wink ). His hats are like his "trademark". Aside from work, I have a camouflage Cabela's hat that I wear primarily everywhere I go. If I don't wear it when I spend time with friends, they'll ask me where my hat is. I'm sure other people on here are known for wearing a specific hat, boots, holster, or style.
