Earlier this month, rapper and activist Killer Mike released a Netflix Original, titled Trigger Warning with Killer Mike
. Killer Mike is half of the rapping duo, Run the Jewels. In his Netflix Original docu-series, he addresses topics of racism, classism, sexism, etc. His first episode, Living Black, consisted of a social experiment of sorts. For three days prior to his show in Athens, Georgia, Killer Mike sets out on a self-appointed quest to live completely Black.
Three days prior to his show in Athens, Georgia, Michael Santiago Render (Killer Mike) set out on his quest to conduct business solely with Black-owned businesses. Vikram Gandhi, director of the series, told Killer Mike that his endeavor would be an impossible one. Killer Mike did not allow that to stop him.
We Buy Black
While attempting to live completely Black–meaning only spending his money with Black-owned businesses and vendors–Killer Mike came to the Black economic experts. Early on in the episode, Killer Mike consulted with We Buy Black’s very own founder, Shareef Abdul-Malik. During their meeting, Abdul-Malik presented a number of Black-owned products that are currently selling on We Buy Black to Killer Mike. With the help of We Buy Black, Killer Mike was able to complete his mission of Living Black for three consecutive days. Here are some of the items that Killer Mike used:
Among the myriad of products that Shareef Abdul-Malik presented to Killer Mike was natural mouthwash and tooth powder from Garner’s Garden. Abdul-Malik presented this to Killer Mike as a Black-owned alternative to Colgate, for example. Just as effective as it White-owned competitors, Garner’s Garden is the perfect alternative for those dedicated to living Black. Click here
