The No More Black Targets campaign argues that shooting ranges and instructors should not use "menacing" black targets, and is petitioning to end the practice, citing trigger bias.
"Young black men are 3X more likely to be shot by trained shooters than their white peers," notes the site for the campaign. "A disturbing potential correlation: The most popular target for shooters to learn to use their firearm is a black silhouette. Unconscious bias can be deadly."

... so you racist gun nuts won't learn unconscious trigger bias that can be deadly.
A lot of them Amish fellers in Chicago and other big blue cities shoot black targets every day.
This is satire, yes?
And after that, they are going to go after shadows. The sun is racist and casts black shadows. You never see a white shadow. Shadows follow people everywhere and can be startling at time. This creates unconscious bias, fear and anger towards the black race.
To fight the sun, they plan to have protests and burn black colleges and cities.
Seems there’s a segment of society that just can’t grasp the concept of “illegal” and are desperate to invent blame to impute on anyone but actual criminals.
The group is also calling for a ban on the word ‘trigger’ because it rhymes with a racial slur.
You just can’t make this stuff up!
Down with black coffee!!
Ned seems to have made an impact.
I’d guess these people would be thrilled if a picture of Trump became the standard target. And would want someone arrested for a hate crime if a picture of Obama was used.
Especially ones like that which ignore gender
This is probably another gubmint subsidized study where the conclusion was reached long before the study was concluded.
Black silhouette target eliminated
Young black men are 3X more likely to need to be shot. No matter how you want to say it, lets all ignore the policies that have destroyed generations of blacks and blame the people who are protecting themselves.
This is really funny. What are they gonna do next? Outlaw the word ‘silhouette?’ Outlaw shadows?
