Sister Souljah on Larry King Live Part 1, Part 2 (1992)
Rap artist, activist and author Sister Souljah addressing the controversy that arose after remarks she made following the 1992 LA Riots. Sister Souljah was quoted as saying: ”If black people kill black people every day, why not have a week and kill white people?” As a result Bill Clinton infamously compared Sister Souljah to white supremacist and Klu Klux Klan member David Dukes. In this interview Sister Souljah puts her comments into context while providing a sharp social analysis of White supremacy, racism and capitalism in America and their toxic impact on the socio-economic infrastructure of American society. She also explains why she proudly identifies as an African and why she chose to express herself through Hip-Hop music. The Guardian later described Sister Souljah’s comments as a key event in the history of Hip-Hop.
