Lil Wayne Explains Why He Doesn't Know What Racism Is

Lil Wayne started quite a conversation last month when he said that he'd never experienced racism.

He revisited the topic during a video interview with the AP, speaking about an incident while convinced him "there's no such thing as racism."

When Wayne was 12 he shot himself by accident. But when the police came to his house the black cops stepped right over him, looking for drugs and guns. It was a white officer called "Uncle Bob" who noticed Wayne bleeding. Bob took him to the hospital in a cop car because there may not have been time for an ambulance. When they arrived, Bob stayed with Wayne until he knew he was going to be OK.

"Them (expletive) that hopped over me were blacker than me," Wayne explained. "My life was saved by a white man. I don’t know what racism is. I know a good (expletive) named Uncle Bob, though.”
Wayne's story doesn't really disprove racism. But it is pretty powerful and does help explain his outlook.

What do you think?
