"I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific. ... And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge," Wayne said during a discussion with Fat Joe. "We have to actually get into who that person is. And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we're doing."

Wayne acknowledged that his perspective is unique, and explained his reluctance to speak on such issues.

"Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt and they think they did something," Wayne explained. "What you gonna do after that? Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out there and do something? So, if I ain't about to do all that, then I ain't about to do nothing. I'll pray for ya."

Wayne has previously stated that having his life saved by a white police officer when he accidentally shot himself has influenced how he views both the police and race relations.

"Them (expletive) that hopped over me were blacker than me," Wayne told the AP in 2016 about the incident when he was 12. "My life was saved by a white man. I don’t know what racism is. I know a good (expletive) named Uncle Bob, though.”
