David Banner Boldly Says What Most Black Leaders Are Terrified of Telling Black People

Earlier this month, rapper, activist and entrepreneur David Banner discussed his latest album, The God Box, and how to end white supremacy on The Rock Newman Show hosted at Howard University.

In a clip from the May 5 edition of the show, Banner discusses the only strategies Black people can use to defeat white supremacy: disrupt economics and end life.

In the nearly 4-minute clip (28-32:40 minute mark), Banner says that Black people need to be left alone.

“We are always told to get ourselves together but when we do, you [white people] burn down [our communities] or find a way to put fraud on it,” Banner explained to Newman.

For a long time Black people have been the “child race” of America, he says: “We think like children, we spend like children and the country makes billions off it.”

According to Banner, praying, protests, debates and marches are useless and ineffective.

“White supremacy only respects the loss of finance and the loss of life,” Banner told the host. “We spend trillions of dollars. Once we get ourselves together, that will affect them financially.”
