Weeks ago, rapper Lil Wayne of all people shocked the liberal elites when he refused to show support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
When asked about Colin Kaepernick, Wayne said that he didn’t really understand why Kaepernick was doing it and that somebody had to explain to him that it was about “that whole Black Lives Matter thing,” and “that wave just went by me too fast for me to even try to give an opinion.”
The real bombshell came when host Skip Bayless asked Wayne, “Where are we in the United States of America in Race Relations? What you see from day to day in your life.” You know they wanted him to say that race relations are terrible, but
“They wouldn’t want to ask me that. They wouldn’t want my answer to represent it,” Lil Wayne replied, “because God knows that I have been nothing but blessed. My whole path, these 33 years have been nothing but a blessing. I have never, and never’s a strong word, I have never dealt with racism, and I’m glad I didn’t have to. And I don’t know if it’s because of my blessings, but it is my reality, so I have to say that I thought it was over, I still believe it’s over, but obviously, it isn’t.”
The hosts appeared shocked at his statement. Skip asked, “So you’ve never experienced any offensive behavior from any other color?” Lil Wayne replied, “No, sir.”
Host Shannon Sharpe seemed to be in disbelief and asked him, being from New Orleans, if he did see what was going on with situations like the Alton Sterling shooting. Lil Wayne said that he sees what’s going on, “We all wanted somebody to figure out what was going on first and then put a stop to it, or try to put a stop to it,” Lil Wayne said, “everybody come together and figure something out, or maybe just coming together is the solution, but we have to do that first.”
Now, Wayne is telling a story from his childhood when a white police officer saved his life. As the Daily Mail reported:
It was a white cop who saved Lil Wayne’s life when he was 12-years-old that made the rapper say there was ‘no such thing as racism’.
Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr, was being interviewed on Fox Sports 1’s show Undisputed in September when he said he had ‘never dealt with racism’.
Carter cited as evidence the fact that his concerts were attended by a lot of white fans.
‘I thought that was clearly a message that were was no such thing as racism,’ he told host Skip Bayless.
The New Orleans-born rapper came under fire on social media for his comments, but explained on Tuesday they had to do with the man who saved his life.
If you listened to the BLM crowd, you’d think the only story involving a 12-year old Lil Wayne, a gunshot wound, and a police officer would be because an officer shot him.
