I have been meaning to comment on this program of the African-American Men Project in Minneapolis. Individuals can turn guns in for cash, no questions asked.
Backers of the program tell and retell this story about kids in oversized parkas turning in a sawed-off shotgun. All well and good. But is there a general assumption about black gun ownership here? And if the Star Tribune purports to break down racial stereotypes, does this program reinforce stereotypes?
Talk amongst yourselves.
