Rapper Chuck D slammed Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, in an interview with CNN's Carol Costello Tuesday, calling the presumptive Republican nominee "stupid" for saying that the "Black Lives Matter" movement has in some cases instigated police shootings.
No matter how much we try to explain it, some celebrities will continue to promote "All lives matter" while completely erasing the Black Lives Matter movement.
As quoted in Raw Story, McKesson also says, "My heart goes out to the victims of all violence", and that nobody should have to die by gunfire, whether they were police officers or the people they're supposed to protect. Unfortunately, rappers The Game and Problem are two of the latest prominent people to support an "all lives matter" sentiment. "And so with any group there's going to be situations, challenges, things that a person won't agree with, but I think it's more important to look at the whole rather than the individual".
Rapper Nick Cannon joined Black Lives Matters protesters outside the Republican National Convention on Monday - and attacked both political parties. "People have a right to speak, and then we take those protests and the right to speak and that message and put it into our system to make a better solution".
He added, "Bill, if Black Lives Matter disappeared overnight, and sank into the Atlantic Ocean, it would have no effect whatsoever on whether or not some lunatic is going to grab a gun and kill five cops in Louisiana".
KPD Captain Mike Kirkwood says most of his police officers will already be at cruise night but to ensure safety there will be an officer at the protest as well.
Representatives from the Lawyers Matter movement also participated in the protest.
"We want to reach some form of unity in the community", she said. "Once we can come together as a people, as a human race as human beings, I think we will really be able to start change".
"That's not acceptable whether you like them or don't like them", he said.
