Lil Wayne: ‘No Such Thing as Racism’
According to Lil Wayne, racism no longer exists. Appearing Tuesday on FS1’s Undisputed, the rapper was asked by host Skip Bayless what message he takes away from a performance in Westchester, N.Y., which featured a predominantly white audience. His response: “I thought that was clearly a message that there was no such thing as racism.” He later added that he believes racism is non-existent among millennials because “it’s not cool to them.”
Co-host Sterling Sharpe, a black ex-NFL player, pushed back, telling the rapper: “He knows it’s real, he just hasn’t experienced it.” Lil Wayne’s responded by recalling how when he’d accidentally shot himself in 2009, it was a white off-duty police officer who personally carried him to the hospital.
