Rapper Killer Mike is being accused of sexism after a quote he made was taken out of context. During a Bernie Sanders rally at Morehouse College on Tuesday, Mike recounted a conversation he had with anti-racism activist and feminist, Jane Elliott.

” … I talked to Jane Elliott a few weeks ago, and Jane said, ‘Michael, a uterus doesn’t qualify you to be president of the United States. You have to be—you have to have policy that’s reflective of social justice. Paying women a fair wage is social justice … ending a bullsh*t drug war is social justice. Making sure our children can go to college is social justice,” the rapper turned political activist shared.

Unfortunately for Mike, a clip of him only saying “a uterus doesn’t qualify you to be president” began circulating online. Brad Woodhouse, president of pro-Clinton super PAC Correct the Record, tweeted that Killer Mike’s words were “sexist bullsh*t.”

Fortunately, a lot of people saw right through the political games being played and defended the rapper.


Jane Elliott also defended Killer Mike, telling the Huffington Post, “I think the reaction is because a man said what I said. If a woman had made that statement there would have been no problem, but because a man said it, it becomes a sexist statement. It’s a ridiculous thing to be upset about,” Elliott told The Huffington Post. “It should be a fact of life that neither gender nor skin color should determine whether you are appropriate for leadership of the government of the United States of America.”

Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!

Published

on

Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…

Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.

If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.

So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
