I know this is not empirical evidence, and I know it happened in different states, but how many times have I heard from African-American open carriers the treatment that they get from all cops, and how terrible it is, compared to the treatment that I've received from countless police officers while open carrying a handgun, or even carrying a rifle case on the street. I look white, but am bi-racial.
Maybe there is something to this.
What do you think?
Maybe we should do a larger sample size to see.
A few thousand in different open carry states and places should help, but it is interesting.
I'm certainly not calling all officers racist.
