    I seek conversation with people I don’t agree with, dwelling only in commonality is boring. Echo chambers and insulated minds can be as dangerous as guns.

      How many people save people from having guns or people saving them self’s by having guns….look into this ….GUNS SAFE LIVES …if you need some on with a gun / cop …how long does it take for them to get there ?

    • I’m from the UK (London) and I always assumed that Orange County, California was a very nice place… I didn’t expect to see gun violence there!!!
      Say what you want about Florida guys… but at least they are living their best lives despite some crimes here and there in that State.

      @Greg A Her name is Breonna. Her mother was referring to BLM Louisville specifically. But what has that got to do with stepping out of your comfort zone anyway?

    That is great advice. My life is richer for having friends from all over the world.

      @Easter Bunny I have lived in 11 different countries. Are you jealous!

      @Malabika Chatterjee He’s not smart enough to be jealous of you.

    • @Malabika Chatterjee actually there are people on the left in America that would call you a white supremacist, they are pretty nuts. Most people who work at CNN would call you a white supremacist simply for not agreeing with them. CNN calls black people white supremacist it has nothing to do with skin color to them. It’s how you believe.

    • From an Arab asking and wondering: why cnn and mainstream media try hard these days to convince the mionirtris who live in america that you can’t be a good american until you hate white ppl and have a black friend?

      If you don’t see they are a part of this problem you are a fool.😎

    • CNN has been exposed. They lie and make up stories. They create fear to divide people. Even about the Covid-19 number of cases, they lied so that YOU are scared and it WORKED. You are all still watching CNN day and night.

    Yes, finally. Enjoy the company of people that don’t look like you and are different from you. When you get to that point in life you will see things in a different light. Killer Mike is extremely thoughtful

      @Haight the Great it’s not wise for my people to join our enemies no matter what you say.

      @Kriptz so who does tell the truth? Don’t say Fox.

      @Jane Day ok Jane and it’s “their” and you are entitled to your way of life Democrat , republican , independent , when the metal meets the road we all have something in common, it’s just a matter of having that conversation and party affiliation doesn’t have to play a part. I converse with them all regardless of political party because everyone can bring something to the table, 🤷🏾‍♀️

    It is absolutely imperative that we meet people from other groups. Underneath, do we not all bleed when hurt and just want to be loved???

  9. Exactly right ! And thus you turn a stranger into a friend ! We can end hate by habitual engagement.

    I love you both! AND your message!!!

  11. Come on now mike. It is never a secret that you are being creative and making new music. . . . You always did that. I always loved your voice on the big boi half of that double album. I didn’t know your name back then but I
    Loved that song cuz of your part. And the piano part. It’s so nostalgic to me walking to class back when less than half the people I knew had iPods. I loved you way before I knew who you were. “The whole world” is the same thing. It’s crazy how your voice is so familiar in my brain. Like a person I really know.

    I’m gonna miss seeing you Brooke. Killer Mike dropping the mic like an atom bomb as always. I loved this segment. Cant wait for the album!!!

  13. RTJ4 was their best yet, man I can’t imagine if Killer can pull a better solo effort than RAP Music but I’m stoked. He’s dropping knowledge like always. My favorite track was definitely JU$T, everyone should watch the lyric video.

  14. Amazing interview! Thank you

    I am not a person who listens to rap music. Don’t know that I could name a rap song. That said, every time I see an interview with ‘Killer’ Mike I am impressed by him.

      @Kriptz Get out and talk to people who don’t look like you. The answers to your concerns lie in the creation of connections, in empathy. Love and respect.

  16. I even took the next step after the engagement; I got married, and it was a painful divorce. True story.

  17. I live in a mostly white area and I always try and talk or engage others I’m Mexican by the way and it always seems to come back to who I voted for or do I own my home or something that doesn’t matter it’s very hard to to extend an olive branch to a group that doesn’t have there hand out .

  18. Hell yeah! We ready for 5! Keep it up Michael Render. Love ya Ponyboy… keeping you in our thoughts.

    “Engage with people who don’t look like you.” Best advice I’ve heard on youtube (or anywhere) all year.

  20. My parents and extended family taught us this. You must be able to speak and walk among different people. You become a better person for it.
