Activists and Rappers Michael Render, pka Killer Mike, and Clifford Harris Jr., pka T.I., Extend Support to El Paso, TX and Dayton, OH victims

Atlanta, GA – Following the fatal Aug. 3 mass shooting in El Paso, Texas where 22 people were killed and dozens others injured, rappers, businessmen and activists Michael Render, pka Killer Mike, and Clifford Harris Jr., pka T.I. today released the following statement:

“We want to offer our deepest sympathies to the families whose lives have been forever changed as a result of the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton. We also want to recognize Glendon Oakley, a member of the United States Army, who carried several children to safety. Oakley is the antithesis of the domestic terrorists who stalk our communities and our sacred spaces inciting fear and siphoning peace,” said Grammy Award-winning rapper, businessman and activist Michael Render, pka Killer Mike. “We should spare no expense in ensuring that he, and others like him, receives the support, praise and protection that we would afford to any other national treasure. At the end of the day, no one, not even military personnel, should have to fight terror abroad and terror at home.”

“We can’t say enough about how much we grieve with the families who have lost their loved ones,” said three-time Grammy Award-winning rapper, actor and activist Clifford “T.I.” Harris Jr. “Not only do we want to extend support to those in need, but also to people like Glendon Oakley, who courageously put themselves in harm’s way to spare and save lives. We want Glendon and others who have taken heroic stances, to know that they are not alone.”

“While there is significant and deserved attention on mass shootings, we cannot forget the communities who live daily with the threat of gun violence in their neighborhoods,” Harris concluded. “Like the people in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio (where another mass shooting occurred the morning of Aug. 4) they deserve our attention and support as well.”
