    This quote IS 2nd Amendment related, but it did not appear to fit anywhere else.

    W.E.B. DuBois, editor of the NAACP magazine Crisis, insisted that blacks stop behaving like helpless victims. He wrote with disgust about black people in Gainesville, Florida, who had acted "like a set of cowardly sheep":


    "Without resistance they let a white mob whom they outnumbered two to one, torture, harry and murder their women [and] shoot down innocent men…

    No people can behave with the absolute cowardice shown by these colored people and hope to have the sympathy or help of civilized folk…

    In the last analysis lynching of Negroes is going to stop in the South when the cowardly mob is faced by effective guns in the hands of people determined to sell their souls dearly."

    Too bad the NAACP embraced being "cowardly sheep" and CORE is ineffective.
