Written by intern writer @Ashley_Janice || Louisiana’s heavy weight rapper Lil Wayne was interviewed on Fox Sports 1’s show ‘Undisputed’ in September an interestingly mentioned that he ”never dealt with racism.”
Before you give him the side eye, Lil Wayne reveals the true reason why he never dealt with racism beforehand. At the tender age of 12, before Weezy became the superstar rapper that he’s known for today, he accidentally shot himself in the chest. That’s not even the crazy part…it gets even better. When police arrived, they broke down his door and quickly rushed through the house looking for drugs and guns overlooking Carter on the floor bleeding from his chest.
It was then when a white cop by the name of “Uncle Bob” scolded his fellow police officers in confusion to how they could ignore this 12-year-old boy bleeding on the floor from a gunshot wound. It was Uncle Bob who saved the day and personally rushed Carter to the hospital. While speaking to The Daily Mail, Weezy said, “He stood there and waited until the doctors said, he’s good he’s going to make it.” Carter even mentions that the cops who ran into the home were, “blacker” than him, but the one cop who cared enough to check on him was “white as snow.” Carter proudly added, “Yeah… he was a cop, and my life was saved by a white man. I don’t know what racism is.”
Weezy also told Skip Bayless, the host of Undisputed, that there is such a thing as racism. Still, Weezy says that when he looks into his crowd at his shows, he sees all colors. “Its 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,” Carter said. He also added, “I’m blessed to have that opportunity, so with that said I can only be honest with such a thing, I never witnessed racism.”
According to The Daily Mail, when asked why is he isn’t promoting the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement while promoting his memoir ‘Gone Til November: A Journal of Rikers Island’, he said:
“I’m trying to make these words stop popping out of my head. I’m trying to make them rhyme. I’ve got all kinds of lives mattering up in here-green, all kinds of stuff mattering. While pointing to his head he added, “I’m trying to make sense of what’s going on up here.”
