NOBODY breaks it down like Killer Mike when it comes to politics, and school was in session when he ran into our photog at LAX on election day.
The Atlanta MC and political acitivst was explaining why he's been imploring African-American voters to "stay home" if Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party don't deliver on their promises. The concept seemed counterproductive to our guy -- and that's when Mike started teaching.

Killer Mike On Why Hillary Clinton's Gonna Owe the Black Community | TMZ
Black unemployment fell significantly under Obama and mandatory minimum sentencing was eliminated under Obama. Black incarceration rates have been falling since 2000 and fell even even more Obama. Black unemployment is at it's lowest in decades. It was way higher when Obama first took office. I disagree with Killer Mike, black people ain't living in 3rd world conditions. Maybe in rural Mississippi or some place like that, but I agree with about threatening to withhold your vote in order to they give you something. And about the Democrats taking us for granted, I agree .
Killer mike needs to thank president Trump for making black lives better !! Lowest unemployment rate in over 50 fucking years !! President Trump is dropping welfare and saying YOU ARE BETTER THAN THAT BULLSHIT !! Don't accept government handouts unless you have NO other choice ! Not because you are lazy ! Killer mike is still on the playstation. He needs to keep off and encourage the border wall to ensure that HIS PEOPLE are able to have access to the very things that illegal immigrants take from them ! Jobs , housing healthcare food etc etc etc !
I get exactly what he is saying. He is saying 1st, Local elections matter. Don’t sit those out, and 2nd, Send the Democratic Party a message by sitting that election out if the candidate doesn’t address the problems occurring that doesn’t change president to president. And so if they don’t seem to care then because of the base’s voters sitting out Presidential elections and the democrat loses to another Republican, It will send a strong message to the DNC that the voter base’s problems keep going unanswered. E.g. inner city gun violence and economic poverty to name a few.
I don't think blacks fell deeper into poverty under Obama. Cause black people are not a backward moving people. 17% unemployment in the black community, I don't think so. Well if your looking in these poor areas of the inner city then yes, you have these issues and in fact, the people in these poor neighborhoods are doing worse than ever. Many Chicago black neighborhoods are literally crumbling before the people's very eyes. Some of them are empty hollowed shells of blight with nothing left in them. Everything is boarded up, schools gone, businesses gone, rec centers gone, clinics gone, housing gone, and only emptyness and despair is left. All their dignity is gone. But the majority of black folks in America are doing well. You have about 25% of the black community in this country that's poor, and a total of 10% of us extremely poor. Most of us are doing ok.
Killer Mike made a contradictory statement toward the end, "my criteria is, total, probably, libertarian view where you let the free market reign, let people do what they want to, and the government protects us from foreign interests and from one another..." with that he voted for Jill Stein. He clearly had a choice with Gary Johnson. Did he vote for Jill Stein because Stein fits closely to his upbringing and his ethnic community? Seems like he is struggling to find where he is at with ideology.
Killer Mike is a brilliant orator -- very thoughtful yet fast with knowledgeable. He is needed on the Left. He is a rarity.
Wonder what Mike think about 4 out of 5 males in Congressional, Senatorial, and House are white and 80% white overall. Then tell me what the popular vote means against that! Systems are rigged ! Checkmate if you play the voting game everytime!
Killer Mike be dropping that knowledge! This is exactly one of the reasons Clinton and the Democratics lost. They focused too much on running a race on fear of a Trump presidency, rather than actually reaching out to their base.
Killer Mike is a fucking idiot. He and similar "black leaders" utterly failed the black community this election cycle. But for the ignorance and apathy displayed by the black community, Trump would never have been elected. He won with fewer votes than John McCain garnered. And yes, even a complete moron knows that Trump is 100x worse for the black community than Hillary. To even try to debate that point is an exercise in idiocy. Going after Hillary and pushing for a non-vote or protest-vote by the black community was a colossal fuck-up that ultimately back-fired and elected President Trump.
So Killer Mike says he considers himself a Libertarian towards the end, yet he religiously backed Bernie and then says he voted for Jill Stein? Sanders is literally most pro-big government candidate ever.
so now I know he feels real stupid being that he followed 1 white woman didnt have his interest at heart in the first place as that same white woman has now raised 2 million to support another white woman who he was feeling regarding her votes being recounted. This dummy here..
Mike, I love you, truly, but you are too smart to speak so frankly! Intelligence was beaten down by 'common sense' this election. By 'common sense,' I mean acting without research. As a leader, you can't assume that your community (a broad social/ethnic spectrum of Americans) has the time or energy to be as informed as you are; they follow YOU.
Joshua Marcus ...Sadly he knew and thought it was obvious but the guy just kept acting dumb on that, "I'm white and I so", rhetoric. He still kept on even when Mike addressed the issues Austraila's had and has with the Aborigines. You can't teach them or reach them all, and Mike expertly showed that in his, "... all you can do is try", technique.
Killer Mike "When u niqqas gon unite and KILL the po-lice muthaphukker?"
Arrest this man for inciting violence against law enforcement. Another officer murdered in Texas yesterday. Bringing the total to 172. Give police the authority to control violent criminals that Obama has taken from them. The majority of US citizens do not want our officers to have less power. Only criminals want that.
I found it by accident, not because I like to watch that trash programing of TMZ, but Killer Mike is so awesome and telling the truth. I live in a community were most of the people are black and they feel the same, but the media, like the dumb TMZ do nothing for the lives of people, do not make public things like this.....then an Australian! uffff!
"You're white".....ahhhh, RACIST!
"Hold Hillary's foot to the flame".....ahhhh, just like y'all held your King oBOZO's foot?? LOL. Y'all voted that BOZO back in for a second term.
Homie speaks a good game but fails miserably in the logic department.
*☆☆☆TELL HIM MIKE! ITS ALWAYS WHITE PEOPLE THAT HAS NEVER WALKED A SEC IN A BLACK PERSON'S SHOES BUT THEY SOMEHOW ALWAYS HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS TO THINGS THEY KNOW ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT. ..THE IRONY☆☆☆*
"You put them first and they put you last. Cause you're a chump. A political chump! ... Any time you throw your weight behind a political party that controls two-thirds of the government, and that party can't keep the promise that it made to you during election time, and you are dumb enough to walk around continuing to identify yourself with that party -- you're not only a chump but you're a traitor to your race."
