Legally Armed Black protesters march quietly through Confederate memorial park in Georgia.
A large group of legally armed Black citizen-protesters marched through Stone Mountain Park near Atlanta on Saturday, July 5th, 2020 calling for the removal of the giant Confederate rock carving at the site that civil rights activists consider a monument to racism. The large crowd of armed protesters was peaceful as they marched in a uniform discipline format. For the past three years, the increase of racist attacks on African Americans has doubled, and the number of African Americans purchasing arms have increased by 30 percent.
Many in the African American communities have cautioned against the increase of guns in Black communities. Many protesters at the event today told Afro World News reporter that they needed to attend the event to remind many white supremacists showing up at Black Lives Matters’ protest for the purpose of intimedaiting protesters, that the right to own guns was not only limited to white supremacist.
