Professor Cobb currently teaches Africana Studies at Brown University in Rhode Island. Every once in a while, this book will remind you that Cobb’s politics are very markedly to the left, except on the issue of gun control. I suspect that more than a few of Cobb’s associates will be either scratching their heads or filled with fury.
Oh, I don't doubt that last.
I am hoping that those curious about the civil rights movement are going
to realize the positives of gun ownership from this book. Indeed, Cobb
makes the point that without widespread gun ownership, the civil rights
movement would not have survived long enough to register voters. The KKK
were domestic terrorists, and only force meeting force would restrain
them, especially when they were also the local law enforcement agency.
Yep. Nothing says "Stop trying to beat/lynch/rape us" like a high-velocity hole in the chest.
