Sunny Hostin says black Americans are buying guns to protect themselves from 'white supremacy'

The View’s Sunny Hostin said African Americans are buying guns to protect themselves from “white supremacy.”. “If you listen to the FBI’s statistics, we had FBI Director [Christopher] Wray testify that the greatest threat in the United States is white supremacy, and who are the victims of white supremacy? Generally, they are African Americans, and so I really believe that that is why you are seeing African Americans now buying guns and arming themselves and protecting themselves,” the former federal prosecutor said Wednesday. “The Second Amendment is for everyone.”

My dad wanted me to experience the world of the Vineyard, because he knew that many of the beaches there-like Oak Bluffs and Inkwell Beach-have strong ties to the African American community.

ABC's Sunny Hostin Breaks Down in Tears After Derek Chauvin Verdict: 'This Is What Justice Finally Looks Like'

The View co-host Sunny Hostin didn’t hold her emotions back in a powerful speech reacting to the guilty verdict handed down on Tuesday in the Derek Chauvin trial. Appearing on ABC News’ coverage of the verdict as the network’s senior legal correspondent, Hostin noted that “I’ve been a lawyer for 27 years” before recalling being in law school in 1992 when the Rodney King verdict came in, with all four LAPD officers being acquitted. “I believed my eyes then, so I believed my eyes this time with George Floyd.” As a lawyer, she knew that a quickly reached verdict meant a likely conviction, but “because it is so rare that police officers are convicted, because Black men and Black boys are killed by police with impunity in this country” and “because I am the mother of an 18-year-old boy who is now in South Africa, and I feel that he is safer in South Africa than he is in his own country, I am so relieved that this is what justice finally looks like for my community.”
