If black people decided to do half of the unrighteous things that whites do, JUST HALF, we would definitely be seen as a threat to national security and we'd be herded up into camps called ghettos and the national guard would declare martial law. . . oh wait this has already happened! WAKE UP!!

Those Tea Party folk had Machine Guns??? I thought those things were Illegal in DC! Where did he get this information ? I looked on line (google, Yahoo, etc.)looking for such a claim and found nothing. Has anyone found an article or anything indicating that the those folks had such armament's? Kevin

Perhaps Mr. Wise used his white privilege to get into the protest and see what exactly was going on. And if they did have AK-47s like at some of the other rallies around the country, I wouldn't be surprised. Its not like this particular rally in Virginia was a surpise, its been all over the internet and they clearly stated what their intentions were. So ah... yeah as I stated previously, stop trying to be provacative. I'm curious though why we haven't seen these types of protests before...

I'm gonna say this, I think it goes to show how violent white people are. Many articles have been posted on here about this gun toting against President Obama, although he hasn't acted on any gun legislation nor has publicly stated it as his intention. I think this is a deeper psychological issue with these people.
