    With all this Imus and racial crud going on it makes me wonder if our sport itself is racially biased ...

    I wonder if the demographics of race within our sport is equal to the demographics of our society?

    How many African American trap shooters are out there?

    How many have you seen?

    BTW ... there is no racial motivation or thought or want of trying to make this topic on this thread a racily motivated topic of anger.

    Its just a question I had in my head as to how the numbers within our sport is so lighten up on your own possible racial motivated thoughts before responding.
