Pusha T Talks to Tim Kaine About Prison Reform, Racism in Get Out the Vote Video
In a new video (watch above), Pusha T is at a block festival in Miami where he encourages young people to exercise their right to vote and make their voice count. “We need to start thinking what’s important to us, what’s important to our community,” he said. “We need to pick Hillary and Kaine.”
Speaking of which, King Push sat down with his fellow Virginia native Tim Kaine and discussed a few topics important to the African-American community.
Among Pusha T's biggest concerns were prison reform and the urgent need to improve on the criminal justice system.
“There’s a lot of reforms that are necessary. There’s policing reforms, to make sure that we have communities where everybody respects the law,” said Kaine. “But people have to be respected by the law, too. That’s really important. In some of our communities that’s not the case.”
Kaine also addressed the problem of systematic racism in America, which is a byproduct of the problems the underpreviliage face when it comes employment, housing and education.
“There is [racism] in housing,” he said. “There is [racism] in employment. There is [racism] in the criminal justice system. There is [racism] in voting rights. So there’s more progress to achieve, but we keep moving forward.”
Kaine also talks about making college debt free and improving the healthcare system so it's available and affordable for everyone.
