Killer Mike expresses views on systemic racism, policing at talk

Render focused on police throughout his talk, but said the need for cops comes from our capitalistic system that oppresses and forces people into poverty. “So long as you create your own crime, you are going to need a system to deter crime,” Render said. “In some small way, we participate in the system. We all see ourselves as oppressed, but we are Americans, and we oppress everyone.”
