Guns In Walmart?

John Crawford Killed By Police Officer For Holding Toy Gun In Walmart | Global Grind

He was holding an air gun in the toy aisle. From the store's stock. And someone got worried and called the police, who shot him while he was explaining that it was a toy. Apparently he didn't put it down fast enough.

But get this - apparently Ohio, where this happened, is an open carry state. Which is to say that apparently it would have been perfectly legal for him to be carrying a real gun, openly, in that toy aisle. But someone called the police. 

Look at the picture below.  If they weren't white, I bet someone would have called the police.

These are real guns.  In the store. And you tell me there is no such thing as white privilege?
