Gun Owners of America president Larry Pratt suggested African Americans should be more like “Africans from Africa” Tuesday.
The comments came during an interview on the Gun Owner’s News Hours show, where Pratt noted most Africans from Africa are generally happier and more pro-American than their African-American counterparts, Opposing Views reports.
“Generally, the African from Africa is a very pro-American person, a very happy person. I know several, and they’re just always — happy with a joke, a pleasant smile on their face, and they clearly don’t identify with the surliness that’s all too frequently the attitude of their fellow African-Americans here,” said Pratt.
Pratt also noted Africans from Ghana are “very conservative politically,” before later saying, “These are folks that stand apart and hopefully they can approach some of their fellow blacks and say, ‘Hey, buddy, you got this all wrong. Let me explain to you how the world really works.’”
