NRA News Commentator Colion Noir has released a new video commentary, “Media Fans Flames of Racism,” in which he responds to the deceitful media’s unjust claims that the NRA does not care about the black community: “If any organization acts in a racist manner toward my gun rights, it’s you, the national news media.” In the video, Noir directly calls out “socially inept morons like Russell Simmons,” who previously stated Noir was just being used when NRA News gave him his own show. He also takes on “ultimate troller Don Lemon,” for attacking the right of young black men to open carry.

In standing up to those who used last week’s tragedies to promote their anti-Second Amendment agenda by trying to paint the NRA and its members as racists, Noir asserts, “You people [the media] fan the flames of racism to sell the tension to your sponsors and then you can’t figure out why black people all over America are legally arming up.” He goes on to cite the NRA’s long history of defending the rights of African-Americans including Shaneen Allen, Josephine Byrd and Otis McDonald, stories the media has largely ignored. Noir then adds, “The Democratic Party invented gun control after slavery to keep guns out of the hands of black people and they haven’t stopped since. But you don’t tell that story, either.” He also asks where the media was when four people died and 51 were wounded in Chicago over July 4th weekend.

Noir opens the video commentary echoing the emotions felt by many across the country this past week: “As I watched Philando Castile dying in that car, I watched myself die, and it evoked every emotion in my body.” Speaking directly to the unjust critics who claimed the NRA was being racist for not immediately issuing statements, Noir goes on to say, “As a lawyer, I’ve learned to wait for all the evidence before rushing to judgment because emotions can blind you and rob you of impartiality.”

Watch Noir’s powerful commentary below, and share it with friends, family and on social media.
