White Robert Farago attempts to defend blacks in Moonie Times Op/Ed:
Not to put too fine a point on it, Chicago's new handgun-licensing laws are inherently racist. For proof, consider Washington, D.C
Odd, there's no mention that the Moonie Times' owner--Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church--also owns a firearm manufacturer, Kahr Arms.
But let's return to Farago's silly op/ed. He claims--without any evidence--that the only folks availing themselves of guns in DC are whites who are able to afford the fees. Of course, he also neglects to mention that the vast majority of DC's black populace didn't want the handgun regulations overturned. Despite Fargo's ridiculous assertion that gun control has roots in racism--it really cannot be denied that racism and Jim Crow laws were advanced, not by denying blacks guns, but by denying them access to public institutions and voting.
