Killer Mike caught some flack for comments he made about Hillary Clinton during a Bernie Sanders rally, and today (February 19) he took to The View to clarify exactly what happened.
Mike had been talking with activist/teacher Jane Elliot, who herself had said that “having a uterus doesn’t qualify you to be President of America” when he asked her whether or not she’d be voting for Clinton. “This is what social justice is,” Mike continued. “If Black people were offered tomorrow every right that we have ever desired, at the cost of a woman’s right or a gay right or an immigrant’s right, I would say thank you, but no thank you…social justice is wanting for me what I want for all of you.”
Mike also talked about why he voted for President Obama, how big corporations screwed over women and minorities in 2008, and why he believes in the separation of church and state. Two of the show’s most controversial figures, Raven-Symone and Whoopi Goldberg, were notably absent from the table this morning.
