National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent reacted to the decision of a Missouri grand jury to not indict police officer Darren Wilson by attacking “black klansmen” and claiming “millions” of African-Americans “slaughter” each other “every day.”
The grand jury was considering whether Wilson should be charged with a crime over his fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown on August 9 in Ferguson, Missouri.
In a November 24 post on Facebook, Nugent, who is a columnist for several conservative websites, offered “lessons from Ferguson,” writing, “Don't let your kids growup to be thugs who think they can steal, assault & attack cops as a way of life & badge of black (dis)honor. Don't preach your racist bullshit 'no justice no peace' as blabbered by Obama's racist Czar Al Not So Sharpton & their black klansmen.”
He also wrote, “dont claim that 'black lives matter' when you ignore the millions you abort & slaughter each & every day by other blacks,” and concluded, “So quit killin each other you fuckin idiots. Drive safely”:
On Twitter, Nugent added, “DarrenWilson did good MichaelBrown did bad justice is served”:

In July 2013, Nugent reacted to the July acquittal of George Zimmerman by calling deceased Florida teenager Trayvon Martin a “dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe.” The verdict kicked off a racist tirade from Nugent, which included the claims that African-Americans should be profiled in the same way members of a community might profile a breed of dog that was biting children, that African-Americans could solve “the black problem” if they were more honest and law-abiding, and that the African-American community has a “mindless tendency to violence” and an inability to “read or speak clearly.”
