Rage Against The Machine Comment On Kyle Rittenhouse Verdict

Rage Against The Machine have taken to social media to comment on the recent Kyle Rittenhouse verdict. As you are probably well aware of by now, that teenager was acquitted after murdering two men and injuring another during a protest in Kenosha, WI. The band said the following:

“What defines innocence in America? Tamir Rice was executed by police for playing with a toy. Nobody was charged. Ahmaud Arbery went jogging and was murdered in broad daylight. Kyle Rittenhouse armed himself and killed people who were fighting for racial justice. He claimed self-defense. This is the settler logic of America’s founding myth: whiteness must cast itself as the victim in order to justify its violence against those resisting its oppression. Welcome to the Land of the Free, Home of the Brave.”
