What you are looking at is a nigger hunting license. Yes you read that right. I came across this in my news feed on Facebook. Sure I’ve always known that slavery is one of the harshest realities faced by Blacks, but seeing it on paper like this made it all the more jarring to me.
I got interested in finding out whether such a thing existed and if they are still in circulation; not that I doubted its existence because after hearing of the heinous crimes meted out to our ancestors and the doctrines of white supremacists, I could not expect better.
I found that such articles were allegedly issued in 1922 at a Good Ol’ Boys Roundup and according to the Washington Times this picture was taken at a 1995 rally where they were allegedly on display.
Further digging led me here and after sifting through I deduced that some patrons even though they denied seeing such an item at the 1995 rally, admitted to knowing of their existence and seeing them elsewhere. So yes, a nigger hunting license is real.
Now let that soak in a bit. Think of the daily reports of racial profiling, white police officers killing unarmed blacks. Think Sandra Bland, Eric Gardener, Trayvon Martin and countless others and ask yourself “what if it’s still legal to use a nigger hunting license today?”
What if no laws were put in effect to disallow or discontinue the use of such a license to annihilate blacks everywhere. I sure see no expiration date on it and it states that open season runs from January 1 to December 31. So you know what that means? There is never an off season.
Notice how there’s no respect of person with regards to gender and age? It doesn’t matter that the hunted may be a child or female.
I see no year anywhere so this could be a license that requires no renewal. Let’s not fool ourselves into thinking racism no longer exists. Dylan Roof has supporters. Let me just leave it at that. White supremacists have gone underground to a great extent but what if they still actively use these licenses? That’s something to think about.
