There’s always politics in hip hop, but what about hip hop in politics?
Rapper Killer Mike appeared on the “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert where he discussed modern day segregation and who he is endorsing for the 2016 presidential run.
Killer Mike on Bernie Sanders:
Dr. King in his last 2 years of life talked about a poor people’s campaign, organizing unions on behalf of poor workers, organizing against a war machine that was perpetuating violence in Vietnam; Bernie Sanders is the only politician who has consistently for 50 years taken that social justice platform into politics. Right now we have the opportunity to elect someone who is directly out of the philosophy of non violence. We have the opportunity to elect someone who cares about everyone and cares about lives that don’t look like his and we may not get this opportunity for another 20 years.
