Rapper Killer Mike Slams Hillary Clinton At Political Rally | Music News

Killer Mike 28.02.2016ANDREW

 

Rapper and OutKast collaborator Killer Mike has spoken at a Bernie Sanders Democrat Presidential candidate campaign rally in South Carolina. Mike championed Sanders’ civil rights record and also criticized Hillary Clinton for being rude to a Black Lives Matter member who questioned her past comments on criminalization in the black community.

 

When you have an opportunity to tell two black girls to ‘shut up and get off stage’, and you don’t and you shake their hand and smile and you step to the side and you listen, that is a firm difference from turning around and staring at a little black girl and saying, ‘Shut up. I’ll talk to you later. You’re being rude.’ Or allowing people to say that to her”.

 

If I could find a picture of you from 51 years ago chained to a black woman, protesting segregation, and I know 51 years later you’re willing to fold your arms, hold you head, and listen to two black girls yell and scream rightfully so as opposed to someone who will tell you to ‘shut up’ after they read your own words, as opposed to someone who will tell you ‘later’ when it comes to your children dying in the streets…And I want to tell the other side, I know from going around and shaking the hands of these beautiful black faces of South Carolina that god damn firewall has a crack in it”.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
