Actually they are a bit late. Fourty years ago I complained to our firearms instructor, in jest of course, about the targets being racially biased. He laughed and said someday someone will make an actual complaint about it. He was prophetic. Interesting in those days, the front blades on the firearms we carried were black posts. They did NOT stand out very well against a black background which made my joking even more sarcastic.

The darkness after sundown is just one big shadow.

I can’t figure out a solution to cure that.

Not to mention that when I close my eyes, everything and everyone appears black.

It’s just the propensity of these liberal hate groups to spout anything and everything to see what will ‘stick’ in the minds of appeasing liberal white people. They are going to get even more outrageous than this as long as they can’t beat Trump and his supporters.

A young black man is probably even MORE likely to be shot by one of his peers.

To be completely accurate they would have to make the target differing shades of brown.

Wouldn't they?

I like the full size(Male) silhouettes targets! Better to do, Ed Ames(Johnny Carson, Tomahawk shot) type shots!

Good thing “groups” don’t get to tell shooters what to do.

James Bond's villains had a solution to the first problem.

As to the second...

I though “black” was dropped now in favor of African American.

Another racist bunch of ‘intellectual’ liberals.

As if the majority of black on black crimes were done by people that go to a gun rage, yeah right.

Young black men are very common as criminals but the targets should be white Christian women with a cross necklace.
