Rapper Killer Mike is not happy with Democrats right now. In a new interview, he is accusing the Democratic party of treating black people like a “neglected wife.”
According to a report on TheRoot.com, Killer Mike became disenchanted with Democrats last year after he decided to support Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton. After he saw the Democratic machine steamroll Sanders and make Clinton the nominee, he was angry. Now, he is calling out the Democrats for failing to help the community that supports them so dearly.
Warning, truth bomb ahead!
Supporting Sanders left him with an even more bitter taste for the Democratic Party, which black people have overwhelmingly followed for decades now. “What has happened in the last 50 to 60 years of being Democrats,” he says, “is we’ve become almost like a neglected wife. We’re faithful. We vote over 80 to 90 percent Democratic and the larger party seems to care nothing about us.
“Everyone brags that unemployment is down to 5 percent but that’s not true among African-American men,” he continues. “It’s not true among African-American youth, but we aren’t holding the feet to the fire of the people that we’re voting for.”
To be clear, Killer Mike does not support Republicans, and is not conservative. However, he has seen the hypocrisy of the Democratic party. His disenchantment is echoed by the many minority voters who did vote for Trump. It seems more black voters have opened their eyes to the fact that Democrats have been playing them and using them for years.
