Talib Kweli always has used his Twitter as a platform to discuss his thoughts and opinions about topics he is passionate about, such as politics and race, from the very first day he signed up for an account.
Today (March 22), when Kweli got wind of the attacks in Brussels, he took to the platform to ignite a conversation about modern-day terrorism and the ways in which racial stereotypes play a role.
In a series of tweets sparked by a comment from another user, he says that the Ku Klux Klan is just as dangerous as ISIS, plain and simple.
“The 1st anti terrorist laws in this country were written cuz of KKK,” Kweli wrote. “KKK defines terrorist organization. Dummy.”
Kweli goes on to talk about how, throughout history, the KKK has been responsible for acts of terrorism dating back to the Civil War, and as recent as rallies that are sparked by the 2016 presidential election.
“The KKK have infiltrated the FBI,” Kweli continued. “FBI participates in killing Black leaders. I don't need their definition.”
Kweli then shared a handful of screen shots and appropriate links to help back up his claims.
Take a look at how the rant unfolded below.
