The outspoken and talented rapper Killer Mike, one half of the group Run The Jewels, has released his own line of anti-Confederate merch. It comes as a response to the violence which occured at a white nationalist/nazi (call ’em what they are guys) rally last week.
The line consists of t-shirts, hoodies, and mugs, which have emblazoned on them a scoreboard showing the USA to be 1-0 up against the Confederate states.
This clothing release came with a video posted with a message for current president and reality tv star Donald Trump. In the video, Killer Mike stated “Can somebody please inform the casino owner masquerading as the United States President that, although he’s totally correct in Jefferson and Washington and many of the other notables and Presidents of this country being slave owners – absolutely correct about that, that doesn’t equate to keeping a Confederate General’s statue up because they were an oppositional force to this union, trying to secede from this union and form another union and/or republic.”
“Don’t cheer for the team that was trying to break up the country that you’re now in charge of leading. Their flags don’t go up because they’re fucking losers. That simple.”
