Rather than playing the blame game Rapper Lil Wayne appears to be a voice of reason as civil unrest sweeps the country following the police-custody death of George Floyd, according to Fox Nation’s Tomi Lahren.

In an Instagram discussion with rapper Fat Joe about the racially-charged police misconduct incident, Lil Wayne expressed a view that is fundamentally unpopular in liberal precincts and that predictably prompted the ire of Twitter’s cancel culture.

Wayne seemed to be dissenting from those advocating guilt by association or vilifying an entire group on based on individual malfeasance.

“I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific…And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge.”

“We have to actually get into who that person is. And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we’re doing.”

He also implied that protesters should learn more about the issues and others should assist people in need on an individual basis rather than assuming that merely sending out a tweet or wearing a shirt with a particular logo to be effective in addressing perceived social disparities.

Tomi Lahren, who previously asserted that what happened to George Floyd was inexcusable, praised Lil Wayne’s remarks on her Fox Nation show Final Thoughts because he “chose not to fall in line with the popular narrative that law enforcement as a whole deserves to be demonized.”

“We have about 700,000 law enforcement officers in this country who are professional, decent and brave, who protect and defend the weak, the innocent, the voiceless day in and day out with little respect and little support. Of course, we have bad apples in the force, just like we have bad people in this country and in the world.”

“So thank you, Lil Wayne, for speaking up. Your audience probably won’t listen to me say it, but coming from you, it might make a huge difference.

“If only Americans would listen to and take advice from a rapper like Lil Wayne instead of Cardi B and the rest who don’t seem to care that the country is in flames.”
