Quote of the Day - Ida B. Wells

"Of the many inhuman outrages of this present year, the only case where the proposed lynching did not occur, was where the men armed themselves in Jacksonville, Fla., and Paducah, Ky, and prevented it. The only times an Afro-American who was assaulted got away has been when he had a gun and used it in self-defense.
The lesson this teaches and which every Afro-American should ponder well, is that a Winchester rifle should have a place of honor in every black home, and it should be used for that protection which the law refuses to give. When the white man who is always the aggressor knows he runs as great risk of biting the dust every time his Afro-American victim does, he will have greater respect for Afro-American life."

Or, in shorthand, "Someone ever tries to kill you, you try to kill em' right back."

Sounds like a few million of those pamphlets should be Printed Up and Distributed for Black History Month.

Yep, if you want to kill me, I want to kill you back... People must know that you will stand your ground and defend yourself - even with a firearm, if warranted.
