Hip-hop artist Lil B recently endorsed Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton for president. After being interviewed by CNN earlier this month, Lil B made another appearance on television yesterday, this time for Michael Eric Dyson’s show on MSNBC. The rapper re-affirmed his support for Sanders, specifically citing Sanders’ economic plans and referencing the inequality that exists in his hometown of Oakland.
When asked if the #BlackLivesMatter movement was being too harsh on Sanders after interrupting one of his rallies last week, Lil B said, “I think the Black Lives Matter movement can go about it differently.” He went on: “We’re all one and the same, we have problems that we need to deal with, but I think it’s about accepting him.”
Lil B also called for the protection of transgender people. “A lot of transgender people are losing their lives, and that’s something that a lot of people won’t talk about.” This is after Lil B called himself “transphobic” earlier this month, and pledged to “learn to accept” trans people after making a controversial joke on Twitter.
Here’s hoping more news outlets seek Lil B’s opinion in the future. Watch the whole interview below.
