Hip-hop artist Lil Wayne made a remarkable statement Tuesday that will have liberals in such an uproar that it’s only a question of time as to how soon he will be forced to walk it back.
Appearing on Fox Sports One, the black recording artist, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., was asked about Colin Kaepernick’s protest and race relations in America. Not only did Lil Wayne say he has “never” experienced racism, he added that he thought “it was over.”
“They wouldn’t want to ask me that,” the rapper warned, when asked to comment on Kaepernick.
“They wouldn’t want my answer to represent them because God knows I have been nothing but blessed,” he continued — Lil Wayne has an estimated net worth of $150 million. “These 33 years have been nothing but a blessing. I have never — and never is a strong word — never dealt with racism and I’m glad I didn’t have to.”
Never in 33 years bears repeating, but what he said next is equally incredible.
“I don’t know if it was because of my blessings but it is my reality. I thought it was over,” Lil Wayne said of racism in America. “I believe its over, but obviously it is not.”
Host Skip Bayless pressed, perhaps not wanting to believe what he was hearing.
“So you’ve never experienced any offensive behavior from any other color?” Bayless asked again.
“Never,” his guest replied.
