“Because I was raised in a Christian culture, I never considered myself to be a totally free human being.”James Baldwin
Trigger Warning is a Netflix show featuring rapper Killer Mike. Although many of the episodes could be described as controversial, Episode 4 jumps all in challenging religion and creating a new one in an effort to explore this oppressive subversion that is deeply ingrained in our culture.
Killer Mike’s episode-ending narration: “When black people can see God in themselves we are reminded we are special, we are connected and we are hope. 500 years of oppression and conditioning tried to convince Black people that we need a master in the sky.”
