This is a VIDEO you NEED to share. Lil Wayne is being questioned by the hosts of “Undisputed” and they are just trying to understand why he’s not standing up for the Black Lives Matter movement. He explains that he doesn’t really see color and that the people he meets don’t treat him any different from anyone else. He supposes that it’s his blessings from God that he hasn’t experienced racism.
But I can attest to you how I feel about black people, Hispanic people, Asians and any other race who doesn’t fit into the stupid Caucasian box made for me; when I was in High School, if you would have asked me if we had a mixed race school I would have told you, no. Because to me that sounded like something ominous. I saw the kids at my school as just the other kids. As I got older I was surprised to find out that my friend Lionel was black and the homecoming queen, Esperanza, was Hispanic.
I didn’t know what racism was until I was in college and started learning that white people are racist. It puzzled me because my parents didn’t seem to be like that. I was made to feel ashamed for being white and made to feel that I may possibly have some deep set racism within. I have tried over the years to see what the media is seeing… do I really view people differently?
I can attest that I NEVER saw a person of color differently until the past couple of years as I’ve turned on the news and I see scary people trashing up communities because they are showing their black pride. If there is anyone creating racism, it is movements like Black Lives Matter that’s scaring the garbage out of regular Americans like me and telling me “Should I start being afraid of black people? Do they really think that differently than I do?”
Lil Wayne nails it on the head with this interview. If you want to experience racism, start focusing on it and accusing people of being racist, then you will find racism. Here is the script to the interview… glad to know there is someone out there who thinks like I do. Life isn’t about race, it’s about your family- period.
Reporter: What’s your reaction to Kaepernick’s protest?
Lil Wayne: Um, it’s a mans decision. Respects a mans decision. I have no opinion on it. So when he did it, someone had to tell me why he did it. That’s how much I didn’t know what was going on, and I kinda still don’t. Someone had to explain the Black Lives Matter thing.
Reporter: You’re a deep thinker on all these issues. Where are we in the United States of America in race relations? What you see from day in your life.
Lil Wayne: They wouldn’t want to ask me that. They wouldn’t want my answer to represent it. God knows I have been nothing but blessed. My whole path, these 33 years have been nothing but a blessing. I have never, never is a strong word, never dealt with racism. I’m glad I didn’t have to. I don’t know if it’s because of my blessings, It is my reality. I thought it was over, I still believe it’s over but it isn’t.
Reporter: So you’ve never experienced any offensive behavior from any other color?
Lil Wayne: Yeah
Reporter: So you have seen what’s on in New Orleans with Alton Sterling, during Katrina, the officers that killed those in jail. I know you say you’re not paying attention to it, but you see what’s going on?
Lil Wayne: As far as an opinion on what’s going on. Of course we all want somebody to figure out what’s going on first and try to put a stop to it. Coming together is the solution, but we’ve got to do that first. And then put a stop to it and try to put a stop to it. We have a bunch of differences, people feeling this way, people feeling that way. You come to a person like me, my answer is always the same. My politics, my flag, my country, my nation, my world, all that is for my family. That’s my world, my protest, my don’t protest.
Reporter: I saw you after a concert in Westchester. I asked you what you thought the racial breakdown with the audience. You told me the only black face you could see in the whole audience was your makeup audience. A lot of white kids love rap, explain that. What is the message of it?
Lil Wayne: I don’t want to be bashed because I don’t want to sound like there is a side. But I thought it was clearly a message that there was no such thing as race. I came out onto the stage while I was on tour. I see everybody, I don’t see this type of crowd or that type of crowd.
But THEN what he says in the end of this interview about when he accidentally shot himself and what happened… WOW I became emotional. He totally confirmed ALL of my personal feelings on race. There is no color, there is only humanity! Watch the “Undisputed” interview below:
