Lil’ Wayne surprised a lot of people with recent comments about how he’s never experienced racism (see Narrative BUSTED. Rapper Lil’ Wayne: ‘Never Experienced Racism…’). The narrative these days is to see racism everywhere, even in cupcakes. Does he want to retract? Oh hell no.
If anything, the rapper (real name Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.) got more specific in a recent interview…
When asked on Tuesday to expand on his thoughts, Lil Wayne told The Associated Press that one of the reasons he feels that way is because a white police officer saved his life when he was 12 years old after he accidentally shot himself in the chest.
“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 (expletive) named Uncle Bob, though.” Carter said.
The Grammy-winning rapper said he was lying on the floor when police broke down the door, stepping over his body looking for guns and drugs. But one man stopped and chastised the others for leaving him.
“He was white as snow. Them (expletive) that hopped over me were blacker than me,” Carter said.
Carter says the man known as “Uncle Bob” personally took him to the hospital and stayed with him.
“(He) stood there and waited until the doctor said ‘He’s gonna make it,'” Carter said.
We’re told it’s naive to think racism doesn’t exist. Racism does exist, sure. As real sexism and bigotry exists. We’ve never said otherwise, we just choose to keep the definitions true. If someone is rude to you, it doesn’t mean they’re a racist, sexist or a bigot. They could just be a jerk. It happens. Leftists would have everyone believe racism is pervasive, like some kind of dry rot infecting our country. Despite our country having plenty of black Americans (“People of COLOR!”) being millionaires and billionaires.
People find what they’re looking for.
But you know what’s also naive? Believing all black people (“People of COLOR!”) have been victims of racism. Because as Lil’ Wayne says here…
Here’s the trick: are you upset Lil’ Wayne said he’s never experienced racism, or are you applauding? Because if you’re triggered because this man has never experienced racism, it says something more about your attitude regards people and the country than it does Lil’ Wayne’s. Sometimes, as I’ve already stated, people find exactly what they’re looking for. If you’re looking for the worst in people, you’ll find it. Lil’ Wayne sees his successes. Perhaps that’s one reason he’s such a success, hmm?
Lil’ Wayne is hardly the only guy to have an experience like this. He is, however, one of the few to speak out. Look at what happens when black entertainers buck the narrative (see 49ers Legend Jerry Rice Blasts Colin Kaepernick. Black Twitter Rages… and Cam Newton on Kaepernick: “We’re all the same color.” Twitter Rages…).
