As your ally-and I am your ally, young people-I wanna say that numerous people I organize with were at that march, whether it was ending racism or ending classism or numerous people that agree with some of the social ideas, like free health care, fair wages, fair earning for women, gay and lesbian rights, black rights in particular around community policing of black men.
That's not the same message he wanted to share with the students who marched on Saturday.
Mike also insisted that doing the interview was not a co-sign of the NRA.
"We're raising a generation of kids where everyone gets a trophy", he said.
Vic Mensa (who is also a gun owner) told Killer Mike, "YOU DONT NEED AN AR-15", to which Killer Mike said he's open to discussing the topic with Mensa.
Mike explained, "We have to always remember that in our allyship we still have to make sure there are certain rights and demands that we make for us in our community".More news: Here's what's fixed, improved, and still broken in Windows 10 build 17634
- Killer Mike (@KillerMike) March 26, 2018 On Sunday, the rapper posted two videos saying the interview was done a week prior to the March for Our Lives and that he did an interview with the NRA to discuss topics with people he doesn't always agree with. "What are you really marching for?"
In an interview with NRATV, Killer Mike (who is a known gun owner) said, "I told my kids on the school walkout, 'I love you".
He also reiterated that he supports black gun ownership, but that his stance does not detract from his support of the "March for Our Lives" movement. Mike said that he agrees with Loesch.
Mike's Run the Jewels partner, El-P, released a statement about the controversy, saying he will continue to work with Mike but wants to "f**king strangle him" for making "bad decisions". And they've earned being heard in one of the hardest ways possible. They've abandoned us many times over. 3.
Now a bonafide star with Run The Jewels, the producer and lyricist issued a pair of tweets with a statement supporting his rapping partnerKiller Mike in the wake of the NRA interview over the weekend.
John Oliver recently dedicated a lengthy segment to NRATV, framing the network as being primarily for the advertising of guns and, obviously, the support of viewpoints that encourage gun ownership.
