Hip-hop star Killer Mike stirs controversy with NRA TV interview

Hip-hop star Killer Mike stirs controversy with NRA TV interview

The MC posted a series of videos on his social media platforms after a chat with the NRA went live where Mike discussed his advocacy work and proclaimed that in "Wakanda, everyone had guns, and spears and everything else you needed".

The pro-gun argument that Mike presents to Noir centers, essentially, on the idea that black Americans can't trust law enforcement to protect them, and that all citizens should be prepared to retaliate against inevitable violence. In his statement, El-P wrote a few things in support of the March For Our Lives: "i am personally incredibly inspired and blown away by the bravery and emotion of an entire generation of young people standing up and trying to change the world".

"I'm sorry, guys", Bender continued.

Killer Mike's interview originally ran this weekend, just as thousands of people took to the streets around the country to take part in the March for Our Lives rallies for gun control.

"That interview was used a week later by NRATV to disparage a very noble campaign that I actually support", he said.

Bender said he was an "ally" to young people and committed to ending racism, classism, and expressed his support for free health care, fair wages and equal rights for gays and lesbians, as well as "black rights" in particular.




In a second recording, Bender said the NRATV interview never should have been shown "in contrast" to Saturday's march and said it was recorded more than a week earlier.

"Guys, I'm sorry", he said.

I don't understand Killer Mike's NRATV comments.

"Keep organizing", Render concluded. "If you walk out that school, walk out my house", the rapper told NRA TV.

"That simple", Bender told NRATV. The NRA has a history of racist antics which include not defending Philando Castile after he was killed by a cop although he legally owned the gun he was carrying. Killer Mike claims that the interview was shot a week before it was aired.

In the immediate aftermath of the massacre, which took place on February 14, the NRA paused all digital advertising for a total of four days. "They want us to forget". "I did an interview about black gun ownership in this era", Mike said in his statement. "It's possible to do both", he said. It's what's called political lobbying, businesses or organisations use their financial strength to make sure politicians vote in their interests.
