Killer Mike Declares, Loudly, That “Black People Aren’t Ready For Revolution!” (Video)

Killer Mike making the revolutionary rounds. Beating his drum for real revolution… and why we ain’t ready. SELF reliance is key. If revolution tears DOWN the system, but we are reliant ON the system, how will we survive the revolution?

Powerful share by Dr. Boyce Watkins.

T.I., Killer Mike, And David Banner Speak On Community Building & Hood Economics (Video)

You’re already free. Now, act like it!
Killer Mike

Okay, ComplexCon got something here. I mean, that Revolt TV panel event (here) was pretty dope… but this panel event is FIRE!

Killer Mike joins friends Clifford “T.I.” Harris and David Banner for an honest conversation on the economic issues facing neighborhoods of color. The rappers-turned-businessmen share their personal perspective on the importance of buying back, rebuilding, and transforming those communities for the better. In the spirit of giving back, they also discuss the value in teaching kids how to better themselves, and the benefits of working a legitimate job instead of hustling.

Killer Mike Speaks On His Upbringing In Activism & Campaign 2020 (Video)

‘Trigger Warning’ is as much a tribute to public broadcasting television as any Michael Moore film… PBS taught me it’s okay to put a message in what you’re doing. It’s okay to be overtly positive in that message. I got that directly from Public Broadcasting…
Killer Mike

That’s DOPE! And many people shed a tear over that Mr. Rogers documentary to be certain.

C Tha God & Killer Mike with some REAL conversation on segregation, reparations, Bernie Sanders, the 2020 Campaign and more. Great episode of Emerging Hollywood.

Killer Mike On Why People, White And Black, Are Mad (Video)

Damn. Michael Render with the real talk. Gotta use Killer Mike’s government name because it’s so real! Ever wonder why poor and working class White people vote against their interests… aligning with Republicans who want to defund programs that benefit them and give tax cuts for citizens who make way more than they do? Because the flag-waving and make-American-great-again chanting has them thinking the ‘trickle down’ from those ‘job creators’ will become a wave of prosperity they can ride to the top [and someday join the 1%]?

Nah… Mike says it’s because they’re mad, son!

I think poor White people are mad because the system that promises you something based on that isn’t ever going to give you that … Poor white people during the civil rights movement in Mississippi they were treated as badly as any Black worker. But because there was an imaginary line of race got put there and they can still say they are superior to this person, they never joined with the Black worker to fight better conditions for them all.
Killer Mike

But hold up, Black people. Mike has some biting words for his people, too.

A must watch!

(Yeah. We ALL have a right to be angry. But what are we gonna do about it?)

Killer Mike Speaks On His Anger And Fears In The Wake Of More Police Killings Of Black People (Video)

Without fail, Killer Mike is ALWAYS speaking poingnantly with passion about matters affecting the people… his people. Sometimes it’s a wonder how he keeps answering the call to speak. Frustration we all feel, way before he and those of like mind began to #FeelTheBern

This is all truth. No slick talk and no backtracking. Notice how he does not have to couch his statements in the typical ‘all cops are not bad’ rhetoric, because he is out there with the police in his town – forging relationships, ensuring that they will feel/be compelled to protect & serve in his community. He touches on that. He has not abandoned talk on political movements we need to make either: VOTE out the folks who refuse to look out for the people in the community… VOTE THEM OUT! And he continues to bang the drum for a show of Black economic power: Want to move those in power, move your money away from them and toward folks you wish to empower.

None of this is new, but Killer Mike keeps speaking it. As frustrating as it must be. The truth is easy to repeat; because it’s not a ‘platform’ or something he has to ‘make up’ or remember. Watch Mike Render speak on his fears and frustrations with the two recent tragic losses of two Black Lives that did not Matter to cops who took them.

Politics: Killer Mike Endorses Bernie Sanders For President (Video)

If you lean to the left (e.g. are likely to vote Democrat in the coming 2016 U.S. election), you should be gathering information and forming impressions NOW. Because before you know it, you will have a decision to make. Every person who has ever run for office has understood that, in order to win, she or he must be supported and admired (and hated) by the right people. So, if you’re thinking Hilary Clinton’s the one, I hope you are learning who is for and against her. Alternatively, if you are taking a hard look at Bernie Sanders – “feeling the Bern” as it were – then you should take a look at the clip above. We KNOW you love Hip-Hop and the Culture if you come to this site often. But maybe “Politics As Usual” has soured you on voting (or even caring). I hope you read my VOTE DAMMIT! posts on here (whether you lean left or right). But maybe they don’t fire you up. But this vid… this vid right here… Just play it. Watch Killer Kill From Adamsville, and it will GIVE YOU BACK YOUR FIRE and make you care about the fight again. In a most powerful way, his speech above makes it clear: Killer Mike Endorses Bernie Sanders, the next President of the United States!

Now sure, you will make your own decision in that ballot box, but a candidate is known and judged by the company she or he keeps; and the enemies she or he makes. Do your research. Who is in who’s corner? What fights is your candidate picking? I’m not sure I completely #FeelTheBern yet, but the temperature is rising.

Oh, and just in case you are thinking this is just more ‘politicking’ peep after the jump. The whole event, including what Bernie Sanders has to say (and eat).

Bill Maher and panelists John Waters, Heather McGhee, Charles Murray and Michael Render – aka Killer Mike – discuss the criticism of Michelle Obama’s Tuskegee (home to our own @ojones1) speech and the underlying causes of the Baltimore riots (above).

“…Why are you burning down your own community? [We] burned down a community that [we] don’t own!”
Killer Mike
