BREAKING VIDEO: BLACK RAPPER KEVIN GATES UNDER FIRE FOR SAYING “ALL LIVES MATTER” AND NOT JUST “BLACK LIVES”.
According to a story in XXL Rap magazine, “Gates has found himself at the center of controversy. The Baton Rouge rapper recently did an interview with 106 KMEL’s Shay Diddy and said he agreed with Stacy Dash’s eyebrow-raising statements on the Black Lives Matter movement. The conversation saw Kevin Gates state that there are only two types of people in life: real and fake. Gates disagreed with the Black Lives Matter movement and asserted that All Lives Matter. He also shifted the blame of police brutality onto the victims. The Baton Rouge rapper explained his own situation and said it was his own actions that caused him to have problems with police officers.“I got my ass whooped before, but you know why? Because I was belligerent,” Kevin Gates said. “I was belligerent and conducting myself like a n—-r. And when I say n—-r, I mean I was conducting myself in an ignorant matter. I had no respect for myself. I had no respect for the authority that was talking to me. So, I deserved what I got.”Gates explained that since he changed his behavior, he has not had any problems with law enforcement. “I’m a convicted felon,” Gates said. “I get pulled over all the time. I’m a two time convicted felon and I’ve been arrested for aggravated charges. I have aggravated charges on my arrest record. And when I speak to these individuals with respect, I’ve never had a problem since I changed the way that I conducted myself. So, I don’t feel likes Black Lives Matter. I feel like All Lives Matter.” Do you agree with Mr. Gates? Do all lives matter? Take the poll below.
