Lil Wayne: ‘No Such Thing as Racism’

According to hip-hop artist Lil Wayne, racism no longer exists. Appearing Tuesday on FS1’s Undisputed, the rapper was asked by host Skip Bayless what message he takes away from a performance in Westchester, New York, which featured a predominantly white audience. His response: “I thought that was clearly a message that there was no such thing as racism.” He later added that he believes racism is nonexistent among millennials because “it’s not cool to them.” Co-host Sterling Sharpe, a black ex-NFL player, pushed back, telling the rapper: “He knows it’s real, he just hasn’t experienced it.” Lil Wayne responded by recalling how when he’d accidentally shot himself in 2009, it was a white off-duty police officer who personally carried him to the hospital.
