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”.
