An anti-gun group is calling on the NRA to remove rocker Ted Nugent from its board of directors after his “racist” comments on Trayvon Martin.
Washington Whispers reported, via Free Republic:

After Ted Nugent made comments about the Trayvon Martin case that were seen as racist, a gun control group is demanding his removal from the National Rifle Association’s board of directors.

The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has launched a petition to “publicly repudiate Ted Nugent’s racist rhetoric” and have him kicked off of the NRA’s board of directors.

The “Cat Scratch Fever” rocker called Martin a “17-year-old dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe” in acolumn for conservative media website Rare. Nugent continued to say, “The only racism on that night was perpetrated by Trayvon Martin, and everybody knows it.”

In a July 16 appearance on the conservative talk radio show “The Alex Jones Show,” Nugent asserted that those most prejudiced against African-Americans were African-American themselves.

“There are black mobs across America that are guilty of the worst racism since the Klan,” Nugent said. “The worst racism against blacks is documented and undeniable by blacks.”

Nugent continued to say that black Americans are tricked into believing they’re oppressed.
