Published

Yahoo News reports that the rapper Killer Mike says that he does not trust presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Cory Booker on the issue of gun control.

BLP reported on Harris’ desire to use executive action to implement gun control and Booker’s new gun control program which would require extensive licensing and bans so-called “assault weapons.”

Killer Mike, whose real name is Michael Render, told Yahoo News “I don’t trust black leadership that wants to de-arm black people.”

He cites gun violence in his Newark community as his primary motivation for taking up the issue.

Booker told CNN host Jake Tapper in May, “In my community, kids fear fireworks on the Fourth of July because they sound like gunshots.”

He added, “In communities across the country, from Newark to Charlotte, from San Diego to Chicago, and everywhere in between, Americans are being killed and families are being torn apart. We must do better.”

However, Render has a different view on the issue.

As a member of the National African American Gun Association and a firm believer in the right to bear arms, he has pushed for black firearms ownership as a civil rights issue. He contends that many of America’s violence issues could be prevented if gun ownership was equally respected in America from the time of its founding all the way up until the present.

Render argued that “If everyone owned guns from day one, it would have been a lot harder to commit acts like slavery and genocide on Native Americans.”

The rapper then cited the case of the book Guns, Germs and Steel to demonstrate his point:

“If you read the book ‘Guns, Germs and Steel,’ it kind of explains to you, you know, why a lot of the wars indigenous people lost was because people came with superior technology and guns.”

Render understands how gun control laws negatively affect African Americans.

Render declared, “Gun laws affect black people first and worst.”

He then cited investigative journalist and civil rights leader Ida B. Wells who was famous for saying that “a Winchester rifle should have a place of honor in every black home, and it should be used for that protection which the law refuses to give” in the face of lynchings that African Americans were confronting throughout the late 19th century.

The history of black gun ownership is generally glossed over these days by public schools.

But it has a tradition grounded in liberty and self-defense against nefarious actors.

Sadly, this kind of history has fallen by the wayside during the last few decades.

Nevertheless, groups such as Black Guns Matter have helped revive this tradition and are opening up new conversations in urban areas where pro-gun activists have not succeeded in the past.

In the investigation, police claimed they found three large front plate glass windows that were apparently shattered.

Police added that a “Trump” political flag was taken from inside one of the shattered windows, which matched the flag Valls had in his possession.

A liquid chemical was also found inside the building. Humboldt Bay Fire arrived at the scene and discovered that the liquid was flammable, the EPD recollected.

Valls was arrested and sent to Humboldt County Correctional Facility for attempted arson, burglary, felony vandalism, resisting arrest and providing a false name.

Valls was held in jail on $25,000 bail Saturday. He would later be bailed out on Sunday.

This was not an isolated incident.

On numerous occasions, vandals have targeted the Humboldt GOP headquarters in Eureka.
