The killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis Police has the United States in disarray and a lot of artists are speaking out against the injustice.
Jay-Z spoke with the Minnesota Governor about the issues and even took out newspaper ad's to honor George Floyd across the country, and he's not the only one speaking out.
Harlem rapper and activist Immortal Technique has been helping take care of 150 families for a while, and things have ramped up with COVID-19 and the riots around George Floyd's death, but he found some time to speak with Revolt about what is going on in the U.S.
In the interview, Tech had some interesting things to say about Jesus Christ, as well as the Bible.
According to him, Jesus Chris was a rioter, and if he was alive today, he would be looting and robbing Chase Bank.
"Oh, by the way, I was raised a Christian. I actually read that book. It’s a great book. The guy comes back at the end. It’s a beautiful story. But, do you know what’s interesting about Jesus Christ? He was a f**king rioter. If that guy was alive, that n**ga would’ve gone into Chase Bank and flipped that s**t over. He flipped over the money changers in the temple. He told people a rich man could pass through the eye of a needle before he could enter the kingdom of heaven because you have to let go of all your worldly possessions.
They say Christ had 12 apostles, but I read in the Bible that he would’ve had 13. There was a rich man that was always in Gallilei that came and followed him. He said what could I do to follow you, Jesus? I tell you what, you can be one of my apostles if you sell everything you have and come with me. That n**ga did not sell everything he had. He couldn’t get rid of it. He kept his target. Where’s his f**king target now? He should’ve rolled with Jesus. You can’t talk about Jesus if you’re not walking in his footsteps."
Do you think Jesus would be a rioter today?
