    What difference does it make if the club isn't actively excluding people?

    An unfortunate thread, that has no value to this site and should be deleted.

    Yes, let's avert our eyes. Black people have their own shooting clubs with live targets, not the sissy clay pigeons we have.

    DanLee, did blacks shoot at your club back in Rhodesia?

    And while we're at it...Would all black TS.com readers please identify themselves on this thread so we can see who you are and how many of you there are?

    I disagree with the direction this thread has taken. I think the point of the original question is how do we make this sport grow and how do we make sure that all interested people are invited to participate.

    It just gets back to demographics as a whole. How many blacks do you have living in your immediate area?

    What makes you a racist is the fact that you see a difference in a shooter according to their skin color. To me, a shooter is a shooter. Why do they need sorted by the color of their skin??

    I dropped my membership at a club that would not allow non-white membership.

    Unfortunately, minorities as whole represent a small percentage of my membership. However, I can say with pride that we actively promote membership to all groups of folks... although I don't think I will be able to hold a "minion" at my local Synagogue anytime soon... our largest minority group are "Asians" more specifically gentlemen from Pakistan...

    If we proactively recruit new members from across all races and socio-economic groups who can afford our sport, we'll end up with a representative membership...

    There was until recently one gentleman that participated in shotgun sports in Seattle area. He was the most upstanding sportsman & nicest guy I have met in this biz in years. TM

    Having said that, I don't think this thread has a place on TS.com
