A Refreshing Reality from a Liberal (Video)

From our esteemed Juan Williams, (professed liberal and Fox News contributor), talks with Jon Scott on Happening Now.  Williams explains head on what the shape of the minority community is in with this segment titled, "Role of race in gun control debate":

Role of race in gun control debate

In my humble opinion, Williams gave every reason to defend gun rights and by extension traditional marriage rights because of the breakdown of the family unit.  Williams accused President Obama of ignoring the 800 pound gorilla in the room, by not recognizing that “every four months in Chicago equals ONE NEWTOWN“.  Williams went on to quote statistics on how the Latino and Black communities have the highest rate of murder in the nation, citing the rapper‘s “hero mentality” of a man with a gun and the badge of honor of going to prison.  I couldn’t believe my ears!

Williams extends this debate fully in a Wall Street Journal article published on March 26th, 2013:

The No. 1 cause of death for African-American men between the ages of 15 and 34: being murdered with a gun.


"This week much of the talk about gun control concerns New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's $12 million ad campaign to put pressure on senators in key states to support legislation that he backs. Or the talk is about the National Rifle Association's pushback against the Bloomberg campaign. Then there was last week's mini-tempest over Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's decision not to include Sen. Dianne Feinstein's assault-weapon ban in a comprehensive gun-control bill the Senate will take up next month.
One thing you don't hear much about in the discussions of guns: race.
That is an astonishing omission, because race ought to be an inescapable part of the debate. Gun-related violence and murders are concentrated among blacks and Latinos in big cities. Murders with guns are the No. 1 cause of death for African-American men between the ages of 15 and 34. But talking about race in the context of guns would also mean taking on a subject that can't be addressed by passing a law: the family-breakdown issues that lead too many minority children to find social status and power in guns.
The statistics are staggering. In 2009, for example, the Centers for Disease Control reported that 54% of all murders committed, overwhelmingly with guns, are murders of black people. Black people are about 13% of the population."
It's quite obvious why the liberal media, Barack Obama, or anyone in the Democratic leadership won't address this travesty---they are all cowards when it comes to admitting the truth about where the guns are doing the most damage in this nation.  It simply wouldn't fit their pathetic narrative of only radical right-wing conservatives clinging to their Guns and Bibles, while sadly a huge minority of Americans are mired in poverty with a "self-slaughtering" mentality.  Keep looking the other way President Obama.  You've only got three and a half more years when it's no longer "your problem".  We could certainly use more Juan Williams' who chose to speak out on this issue.

I pty Juan Williams rant about the President and his lack of influence to curtail gun control in the black community. By my understanding where has William been previous years when black were killing each other before we got a black president? He sits on Fox and makes these accusations because it keeps him pleasing the Fox crew. William what are you doing to help your people? Get off the president back he is great and had done more than any president to help all people. He is dividing the country it was divided before he became president. Racism has been a issue from slavery until now, it has been more revealed since we have a black president. Yes William three more years and then what? If the white man failed when they were in office ignoring black's issues they will continue. Poverty was before President Obama so let's be real and honest. Even now the programs to help blacks and Latinos are being dissolved, so be fair. It is time for you to leave Fox and mingle with the needs of your people.

So, you have identified what you consider a problem with the debate over gun control. How about you start this discussion about race that you feel is so under discussed. What do you have to say about it as it regards the problem of gun violence in this country other than what you have stated here? And while your discussing that how about discussing how we should deal with the other 46% of gun violence not in the black and Hispanic communities. Do you think lack of opportunity, or poverty could play a part in those communities being over represented in this violence? Do you have any ideas for solution to the problem or do you think all the problems of this country are caused by progressive minded people and the liberal media?
