El-P Defends Killer Mike Over NRA Video

  • The NRA aggressively ramped up its online advertising following the Parkland shooting according to a new report

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.

The Chicago Tribune reported that before the shooting, the NRA spent an average of $11,300 per day on online ads. While he initially stood by his stance, the continued backlash prompted Mike to issue an apology. In 1967, when armed members of the Black Panther Party gathered inside the California State Assembly chamber to protest the Mulford Act, a bill that would ultimately ban the open carrying of firearms in California, the N.R.A. instead backed the governor, Ronald Reagan, who eventually signed the bill into law; decades later, the N.R.A. also conspicuously failed to speak out about the death of Philando Castile, the thirty-two-year-old licensed gun owner who was murdered by a panicked police officer. To the young people that worked tirelessly to organize: "I'm sorry that adults chose to do this".

"I love you, if you walk out that school, walk out my house." he said.

"We're raising a generation of kids where everyone gets a trophy", he said.

During the interview, Killer Mike argued that the mainstream progressive movement doesn't always support issues that impact black communities specifically.

"I wish a hero like Blaine Gaskill had been at Marjory Douglas High School last month because your classmates would still be alive and no one would know your names", said Mr. "I'm sorry that an interview I did was used as a weapon against you guys".

Killer Mike's "Run the Jewels" partner El-P also came against the NRA, responding to Noir's highly controversial comments, which indicated that no one would know the name of the protesting Parkland students if their classmates had not died in a mass shooting on February 14. "What are you really marching for?" He spent much of 2016 on the campaign trail working hard for Bernie Sanders as one of the Vermont senator's most vocal and high-profile proxies.

Killer Mike's Run the Jewels partner El-P has now addressed Mike's statements, as Pitchfork points out. They've abandoned us many times over. 3. People like @KillerMike speaking out have completely different reasons to own guns than others will.
