He said his interview in support of black gun ownership, filmed a week before the march, "should never have been used to contrast to your march, and I think it's wrong".

After praising the students of Parkland, Fla. and the students who participated in the 2018 March for Our Lives, El-P praised Killer Mike as a good person, who he would never turn his back on just due to their differences.

Students including Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg, Cameron Kasky and Samantha Fuentes have used their voices to target the NRA and other organizations who stand in the way of gun legislation. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas.

Others also reacted to the apology, with some remaining sympathetic and others blasting Mike for speaking to the NRA to begin with. "To all the kids from Parkland getting ready to use your First Amendment to attack everyone else's Second Amendment at your march on Saturday, I wish a hero like Blaine had been at Marjory Douglas High School last month", Colion Noir said.

Although most progressive black folks didn't have issue with the concept of black gun ownership, that Mike went on NRATV, an organization that has always been accused of racism and anti-black rhetoric, was confounding for most.

"I do support the march. That was unfair to you and that was wrong".

While Render apologized for the context of the interview, he did not retract any of his beliefs on the second amendment. Are they sufficient enough or did Killer Mike do more harm than good here? Bender, in response, said the two rappers had the same publicist and that Mensa knew how to reach him. He continued to say that despite "stumbles" or "bad decisions'" or having messages misinterpreted, that "I cannot and will not ever turn my back on this man".

The March for Our Lives was attended by Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and more.

Basically, he blamed everything on NRA TV as if he didn't accept their invitation to be on the show. But I really hope this is not the beginning of a shift in his politics or tactics. Mike spent hours replying in kind, trying to hash out the finer points of his argument to his young, predominantly liberal fans.
