Rapper Lil Wayne is catching heat from his recent remarks during an interview where he basically said he feels racism no longer exists. Blog sites around the world took that snippet of the interview and ran with it. What wasn’t widely publicized was the context in which he was speaking.

When asked by Skip Bayless, co-host of the Undisputed sports show, to clarify his remarks Wayne said when he steps onto stages around the world he doesn’t see anything other than his fans.

“I thought that was clearly a message that there was no such thing as racism,” Wayne responded. “My crowd has always been everybody.”

 

Lil Wayne went on to say “I have never…never’s a strong word. I have never, never dealt with racism and I’m glad I didn’t have to.”

Hmmmmm. Interesting remark Lil Wayne. Does he recall he didn’t think racism was over in 2014, when he bashed Donald Sterling over his racist remarks. Or in 2012, when he claimed he was discriminated against at an NBA game after a dispute over courtside tickets. Things that make you go “hmmmmmm.”
