No doubt the non-violent way is always the best, but where that does not come naturally the violent way is both necessary and honourable. Inaction here is rank cowardice and unmanly.Ghandi understood the use of violence for social change. Smith doesn't understand what Ghandi stood for.
Smith also doesn't understand the 2nd Amendment. He rannts that:
The right to bear arms is killing all of us. In 2005 the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported 3,006 children and teens killed by gunfire, most of them young, black men in inner-city neighborhoods. And CNN reported yesterday that black-on-black murder of young black men is up 40 percent from last year. The harder the times get, the higher these statistics will go.Yet, we'd wonder why young black men kill young black men and what a liberal black minister from Detroit might do about it. The easy thing of course, ban all the guns.
He's probably not aware that gun control is used mainly as race control and that banning guns is historically the way that white overlords controlled the colored classes. He's also probably not aware that the 2nd Amendment recognizes a human right to self-defense.
One might think that a liberal black christian minister in Detroit would also be a staunch defender of basic human civil rights.
You'd be wrong.
