Lil Wayne stands by his 'no such thing as racism' comment.

(12 Oct 2016) LIL WAYNE EXPLAINS HIS 'NO SUCH THING AS RACISM' COMMENT Lil Wayne understands why some people criticized him for saying racism is over, but claims people don't see it from his perspective. The rapper got some backlash last month when he told Fox Sports 1's "Undisputed" that there was "no such thing as racism" because his concert audiences had a lot of white fans. He also said millennials knew that racism wasn't cool. 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. Still, he acknowledged that despite what he told Skip Bayless on "Undisputed," there is such thing as racism. However, he says when he looks out from the stage, he sees all colors. "When I open my eyes on stage and when I, at a Lil Wayne show when I come from under the stage. Man, it's not - it's the world out there. It's not a certain part or a certain kind or a certain culture or whatever of people, it's people - those people out there in that crowd. They make, quote unquote, and they make, quote unquote, Lil Wayne." He added: "That's who I happen to be, and I'm sorry I'm sorry if people can't understand. But I understand why they don't understand, it's because they don't come from the bottom of the stage and look at 20 to 30-thousand people. They don't get that opportunity. And I'm blessed to have that opportunity, so with that said I can only be honest with such a thing. I have never witnessed racism." Carter made the comments while promoting the recently published "Gone Till November: A Journal of Rikers Island," a revealing account of his eight-month jail sentence in 2010 after a gun charge.

Because he has not experienced racism doesn't prove anything. Good for you. By the way, black people can be racist too. I.e the cops who walked past you and saw gang member or drug dealer and not injured young man.

Wayne is only saying that he's never experienced or seen racism, which is okay and good. He says "I don't know what racism is," Not that it doesn't exist. Calm down.

I am also hard pressed to believe that living and growing up in Louisiana he has never experienced racism I did when I went to college in Nacatiche fucking cop thought I was full white and was throwing the n bomb around to impress me and all my white frat brothers. Also in Marshal I experienced a fucking race fight in a bar Baileys to be exact so tell this shit to fools who will believe what’s said instead of heir own experiences. What a fucking joke of human being.

As a half black half white person growing up in Texas I have experienced racism from both black and white so spare me this bullshit. I guess if you have been rich most your like than it is what it is but for all us people of color that are poor and watching this shit we know better feed this white nationalist propaganda to the sheep because I have experienced racism.

Steam 😂 Maybe you should go back and watch the video and some people weren't wearing Nazis symbols and just because someone believes in one point of a group does not mean they are fully affiliated with that group but thank you for proving my point for me and thank u for the conversation

Steam 😂😂 Emphasized my point thank you 1:59 to about 2:20 I believe is where u should listen
Steam (17 hours ago)
Allex Thompson also anyone marching with people saying you will not replace us and wearing Nazi symbols are well by association with these people supporting them. Is that out of context am I lying. Also enjoy that video I posted I am sure you will use your new ability (alternative facts) and say well he just said it wrong but at the end of the day I know better. I appreciate the banter and the conversation that’s how it should be. But I am kind of over this whole exchange.

Steam He condemned the Neo-Nazi group and white supremacist and said that all the people there were not neo Nazis or white supremacist and that those people were good people,taking someone's words out of context isn't holding them accountable for saying something its border line lying depending on the situation you use it in😕

Culture. Rascism comes from the dislike to another ones culture. People hate "blacks" mostly because of the Gheto way of acting, yet whites and hispanics can also act that way. It's all ghetto culture.

Sure there some racist assholes out there, but its a really small part of the people. Im not a big Rap fan but Im sorry i have to completely agree with Wayne on this. I think it only rears its ugly head when somebody is looking for an excuse to get out of something that they know damn well they should not have done. They pull the race card and it makes me sick. Because the people that are victims of it, don't get taken Seriously because of so many idiot trouble makers useing it as an excuse to try and get something their way. Or out of trouble. Its sad

I dont agree with there being "no racism" because, although what we feel in being "racist" is the same as the feeling as meeting a strange person e.g. the elephant man, that feeling, because it comes from a different race that race outcast might be stereotyped by society in general even in people of the same race. It isn´t, for example, contradictory that a black man is racist toward that black skin people.

One guy wasn't racist. That's like saying one shark isn't biting. One wolf didn't attack. Other factors played in your life experience. Money. Work. Class distinction. Geographic location!

have to agree, for there to be a race it has to be some competition. Smart to admit that Black people come in dead last in the world and best to not call it a race.

Wayne is exaggerating by saying 'there is no such thing as racism'. Race hating each other will forever exist, but racism isn't widely accepted throughout US. Those few who are racist doesn't make a noticeable impact on anyones future, nonetheless racism is real.

Judge a person by their content. Or as MLK said "content of character". And I'm a white as snow Conservative. Lil Wayne has a good massage. If you believe the system is against you, you will never climb to achieve your true potential. When you believe your destiny is in your hands, the world will open up to you.

Wanna know what it's like when blacks are in charge of a country and are the majority of the population? Look no further than South Africa. They're over there committing genocide. Killing every white person simply because they're white, not giving whites medical care BECAUSE THEY'RE WHITE, etc. Whites in South Africa have it WAYYYY WORSE than blacks in america. So Stfu with the racism bullshit. It would be way worse for whites if y'all were the majority. Thankfully y'all aren't and won't be in my lifetime. Smh.
