Killer Mike spoke to Atlanta's Hot 107.9 radio station on Friday about the recent events in Dallas, Baton Rouge, and Minnesota. He began by saying, "I'm angry. I'm hurt. I'm disgusted. I'm ashamed to be a part of this country." Mike continued from there to praise Atlanta police officers and the way they behave, but then continued "I'm tired of living in an environment where this city is the only place in this country I feel safe as a black person."
Mike also said that, "It is time to get angry and do something. It is time to prevent these abusers and these police that abuse the law." He later explained how denizens of Atlanta can take a step in the direction of doing something about the current environment, "What we can do is go to your banks tomorrow. You can go to your bank tomorrow. And you can say "Until you as a corporation start to speak on our behalf, I want all my money. And I'm taking all my money to Citizen's Trust" … What we're going to do is to start to divert money away from this system. And this works. Apartheid ended in South Africa because students in America said "We not flying Delta anymore. We not drinking Coca-Cola anymore. We're not supporting any corporation that supports the Apartheid and the enslavement of people that look like us." And I'm just saying once again … Take your money out of this dog's hands. Out of their paws. Take your money."
