Lil Wayne: 'I Don't Know What Racism Is'

  /  10.14.2016

Lil Wayne still believes there’s “no such thing as racism.”

While promoting his new prison diary Gone ‘Til November: A Journal of Rikers Island, the Young Money boss explained his controversial thoughts on race.

Recalling the day he shot himself as a 12-year-old, Weezy said police officers arrived to his home and “jumped over” his body as he lay injured on the ground. They were looking for “guns and drugs and whatever,” he recalled. Finally, an officer who called himself Uncle Bob stopped them all, picked Wayne up, and asked someone to drive them to the hospital.

“He brought me to the hospital room,” Wayne told The Associated Press. “He stood there and waited until the doctor said, ‘He’s gonna make it.’ He said, ‘Don’t worry. My name’s Uncle Bob.’ He was white as snow. Them motherfu**ers that hopped over me was blacker than me. Yeah, he was a cop and my life was saved by a white man. I don’t know what racism is. I know a good motherfu**er named Uncle Bob, though.”

Earlier this week, Tunechi echoed these sentiments during an interview with The New York Times.

“I was on a sports show recently, and I was asked a question like that about black lives or whatever,” he said. “When we got off the air, [the host] Shannon Sharpe said: ‘I really want to commend you for answering like that, because you didn’t make something up just to make yourself one of us. And to make yourself a victim.’ I’m not that. And honestly, I don’t care. I care what’s going on with me and my kids and my world and my mom and who’s going to pay this next bill. That’s what matters to me.”
