Killer Mike gave a powerful speech at a Bernie Sanders campaign rally at Claflin University in Orangeburg, South Carolina yesterday (February 28).
Throughout his speech, the Atlanta rapper heavily criticized Hillary Clinton’s record on race, particularly referencing the way in which a young #BlackLivesMatter activist was treated after confronting Clinton at a private fundraiser in Charleston, South Carolina on Wednesday, footage of which can be viewed below.
Killer Mike subsequently compared Clinton’s reaction to that of Sanders, who, back in August,was interrupted by a #BlackLivesMatter rally in Seattle. Unlike Clinton, who quickly quelled the small protest, Sanders moved to one side and allowed the activists to speak and voice their opinion.
“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,” Killer Mike said.
