Let the rappers stick to rapping…
Weezy began by saying he respects Colin and his decision [to kneel in protest of the National Anthem]. Then, he confessed he has no opinion on it because he had no idea why Colin was kneeling or what it was about.
I have no opinion on it because I’m not into it enough to even give an opinion.
So, when he did it – I really didn’t know what…someone had to tell me why he was doing it. That’s how much I didn’t know what was going on. And I kinda still don’t.
That was just the tip of the iceberg. Things got reeeeally interesting when Lil Wayne began to share his thoughts on racism.
The Louisiana rapper says he has never experienced racism and he “thought it was over” because his concerts are flooded with white people.
God knows I have been nothing but blessed. My whole path, 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.
I don’t know if it’s because of my blessings, but it’s my reality. So, I would have to say not only did I thought it was over – I still believe it’s over.
But, obviously it isn’t.
I don’t want to be bashed, because I don’t want to sound like I’m on the wrong — if there is a side, but I thought that was clearly a message that there was no such thing as racism.
That’s what I thought that was. That was a perfect example.
