During a panel discussion on MSNBC on Sunday afternoon, radio personality and commentator Charlamagne tha God briefly stunned host Alex Witt by first saying he wished shooting victim Ahmaud Arbery had been armed to defend himself before being gunned down by two white Georgia men — then advised African-Americans to legally purchase a weapon so they don’t meet the same fate.
With the Rev. Al Sharpton also on the panel, Lenard Larry McKelvey, who goes by the Charlamagne professional name, was blunt in his assessment of the two men– since arrested — who were filmed killing Aubery which led to their arrest two months after the incident.
“I would tell my brothers and sisters to go buy yourself a legal firearm and learn how to use it to protect yourself and your family,” he continued.
I said people should own legal firearms to defend against these kind of attacks.
“I see plenty of white people get off for killing unarmed black men in this country so I don’t have any faith in the legal system so therefore that is what I’m telling all of my brothers and sisters to buy yourself a legal firearm and learn how to use it to protect yourself against these kind of threats.
