WATCH: Black Guns Matter Chief Pleads with GOP to Reach Out to Blacks


Maj Toure, the founder of Black Guns Matter, gave excellent testimony during his address at CPAC reminding Republicans that they must reach out to black voters, especially those interested in our rights to self-protection.

Toure became a target of the left for trying to educate inner city blacks about their Second Amendment rights. He has traveled to all 50 states to introduce conservative principles to African Americans, Town Hall reported.

But he says that Republicans and conservatives should not ignore blacks.

“What our organization does is we go to areas with high violence, high crime, high gun control, high slave mentalities, to be perfectly honest, and inform urban America about their human right, as stated in the Second Amendment, to defend their life,” Toure said on Saturday.

“Urban America has been left out of that conversation and it’s time for that, them days is done,” he said.

“The conservative room, has honestly, not done enough for urban America. It’s just what it is. That doesn’t mean that’s where we stay. That means we have to create liaisons,” Toure said.

“When you say ‘urban America’ I mean a group of people you just named: Asians, hispanics, blacks, Latin, white…We have to do more in that regard and put more boots on the ground. If not, we can – and will – lose,” he added.

Toure added that conservatives need to learn how to speak to people in the inner city.

“The conservative movement has failed where we have not created enough and supported enough urban liaisons. The Left has done an amazing job of convincing urban America that the conservative room is a Klan rally. They’ve done it,” Toure said. “[They’re] saying these things to say they don’t trust you. People, right now, Urban America, under a falsehood, does not trust you. What liaisons have you linked with that are already doing the work in urban America to highlight and spread our ideals of freedom?”

Toure added that conservatives need to work harder to let blacks know that they really do care about what blacks think.

The activist is right. We need to reach out much better.
