Sunny Hostin: Black Gun Owners Fear ‘White Supremacy’, Police, Not ‘Street Crime’

Fridays The view, co-host Sunny Hostin claimed that an increase in black gun ownership was not the result of being concerned about spikes in violent crime, but because “white supremacy” and the police made blacks feel “unsafe.” .

The hosts were using their show to promote an ABC special on the rise in gun violence this Sunday. After presenter Ana Navarro blamed the NRA and the gun industry, Sunny Hostin claimed that the Second Amendment was actually racist because it was supposedly “designed to protect slavery.”

He also argued that the rise in gun ownership among African Americans was because African Americans were actually afraid of racists and the police, rather than criminals. She stated, “This is not about an increase in crime on the streets”:

[S]he describes that the constitutional – the Second Amendment was really the right to bear arms was designed to protect slavery, well, they wanted our founding fathers and others, they wanted to be able to empower a local militia group to basically put down slave revolts and protect plantation owners, and so, due to the origins of the Second Amendment, many and due To the NRA, I think we’re seeing this proliferation of guns and gun ownership, but I’ll say gun ownership is increasing, of course, in this country, but the biggest gun ownership on the rise is among African Americans.. It has risen 58.2% and, to a large extent, when they are questioned, they talk about white supremacy, they talk about the pandemic and they talk about police violence. They want to be able to protect themselves. So this is not an increase in crime on the streets. It’s about making people feel insecure. Black Americans.

Hostin may certainly be right about some black homeowners, but that fear is not supported by facts and may be directly related to the way the media sensationalizes police violence while largely ignoring violent crime in left-wing cities.

But fellow host Meghan McCain rejected Hostin dismissing the crime spike. And he mentioned real life examples:

“Well, what makes me feel unsafe is the increase in crime,” she said, quoting Americans fleeing liberal states and cities into red states:

[Y]You don’t see people fleeing Arizona. In fact, Arizona is winning a new seat in Congress because many Californians want to come to Arizona because of different types of laws. You’re not seeing people flooding places like New York City, you’re seeing them flooding places like Florida and Texas and that’s because of the crime spikes and other things that happen after the pandemic …

Even Sara Haines, who generally takes the side of the more liberal presenters, mentioned that the media does not pay enough attention to the actual victims of gun violence and instead focuses on mass shootings:

But this also always disproportionately affects people of color. This statistic literally jumped off the page. Even before last year, gun violence was the leading cause of death for black youth, claiming as many lives as the next nine causes combined. That’s a scary thing because in this air always, the media often covers mass shootings even as someone who consumes it. That’s only 0.2% of gun deaths, which is a bit shocking to me because we tend to focus on the wrong part of this….

While Hostin and Navarro dismissed the rise in crime as blaming the racist “gun culture” was typical, it was comforting to hear someone, except the symbolic conservative presenter, mention facts that the media ignore about gun violence. fire.

The view

7/23/21

SUNNY HOSTIN: [S]he describes that the constitutional – the Second Amendment was really the right to bear arms was designed to protect slavery, well, they wanted our founding fathers and others, they wanted to be able to empower a local militia group to basically put down slave revolts and protect plantation owners, and so, due to the origins of the Second Amendment, many and due To the NRA, I think we’re seeing this proliferation of guns and gun ownership, but I’ll say gun ownership is increasing, of course, in this country, but the biggest gun ownership on the rise is among African Americans.. It has risen 58.2% and, to a large extent, when they are questioned, they talk about white supremacy, they talk about the pandemic and they talk about police violence. They want to be able to protect themselves. So this is not an increase in crime on the streets. It’s about making people feel insecure. Black Americans.

MEGHAN MCCAIN: Well what makes me feel unsafe is the increase in crime, so again, I think it’s quite natural to want to feel safe in cities, and again, you can talk about, you know, different, it’s truth. The statistics, sorry, what was said about places like Mesa, Arizona, obviously my home state, it’s true, but you don’t see people fleeing Arizona. In fact, Arizona is winning a new seat in Congress because many Californians want to come to Arizona because of different types of laws. You are not seeing people flooding places like New York City, you are seeing them flooding places like Florida and Texas and that is due to spikes in crime and other things that happen after the pandemic….

SARA HAINES: But this also always disproportionately affects people of color. This statistic literally jumped off the page. Even before last year, gun violence was the leading cause of death for black youth, claiming as many lives as the next nine causes combined. That’s a scary thing because in this air always, the media often covers mass shootings even as someone who consumes it. That’s only 0.2% of gun deaths, which is a bit shocking to me because we tend to focus on the wrong part of this.

I think we need to see more of what is here. This has become politicized. On the one hand, I think that after defunding the police, people want to focus on that crime is out of control, but I don’t always know, on the other hand, if people want to see the statistics. We need to look for more information and more transparency to find the trends we can focus on to fix this problem.

JOY BEHAR: Maybe we’ll see that on ‘One Nation Under Fire’ that’s on ‘This Week With George Stephanopoulos’ this Sunday actually on ABC. So make sure you check that out. Perhaps the situation is clearer to us.
