In a recent interview with Associated Press News, Lil Wayne explains why he believes racism is over.
Telling a story of an incident when he shot himself at the age of 12, Wayne explains that when police arrived on the scene, all the Black officers “walked right over him.” Claiming the only officer who stopped to give him aid was a white officer he calls “Uncle Bob.” He went on to say:
“My life was saved by a White man. I don’t know what racism is.”
In this day and age, when the Black community is inundated with videos and pictures of white police officers killing unarmed Black people, Lil Wayne’s comments have ignited a firestorm.
