Come For A Black Woman, Catch An L: Joy Ann Reid’s Glorious Gathering Of Killer Mike
Generally, Killer Mike is on the right side of history. He’s speaks about banking Black, advocates for Black Lives Matter etc. But in the past couple of weeks, he’s made some egregious errors. The first, was his decision to sit down with the National Rifle Association (NRA) to discuss Black Gun Ownership. I don’t have to tell you that the NRA is not to be trusted and certainly not be endorsed by or associated with any conscious Black person. Kilker Mike should have known better. His sit down interview with the organization was used as a counter argument to the teenagers and young children who organized and spoke during the March For Our Lives rally. It was aired the same day.
He was used as a pawn. Point us, Killer Mike has proven himself too woke to fall for the okie doke.
He apologized, admitting the error of his ways. And I thought his days of taking Ls were behind him. But that was not the case. This past weekend, he caught another one trying to come for broadcast journalist and MSNBC host Joy Ann Reid.
It began when she posted this picture of herself with the following caption.
Rapper Killer Mike took the H&M to meant the retail store and he went in.
Aiii. Joy did not come to play.
And just when you thought she was done, the journalist hit him with this final thought.
“Also…who starts a feud in Instagram comments? Is your Twitter account locked?”
As a result, Killer Mike had no option but to apologize.
Before we get into the very much deserved dragging he got from the good people of Twitter, I really have to wonder what Killer Mike was thinking coming after a Black woman in a public forum like this? You see how your ego will get you caught up every single time? We already know that Killer Mike was in his feelings, clawing desperately to get back into the good graces of Black folk. Interestingly enough, he could have accomplished that goal had he accepted Joy Ann Reid’s invitation to come on her show, a move that would have been advantageous for the both of them. Instead, he saw the embarrassment of a Black woman as his only avenue. When it comes to Black women, revolutionaries and hoteps alike keep proving they’re not really ready for the liberation of us all.
Y’all gon learn to stop using our bent and bowed backs as the ladder to your personal come up.
