How Guns Made the Civil Rights Movement Possible (3/3)


Charles Cobb author of the book “This Nonviolent Stuff’ll Get You Killed” talks about how firearms helped make the Civil Rights Movement possible.

“And the great lesson of the South, in my view, in the final analysis, is as much as the movement in the South challenged white supremacy, more importantly what the movement did and involved was black people challenging other black people. And that is the question that’s in front of us today when we look at this violence in these inner cities: what black people are going to challenge what black people to tackle this question? That’s more important to me than asking white people for stuff.”
