Rapper Lil Wayne recently downplayed racism in the country, referring to the mixed racial profile of his crowds as an indication that “there was no such thing as racism.”
The remarks by the 33-year-old, southern-raised black entertainer on Fox Sports’ “Skip and Shannon: Undisputed” caught Tomi Lahren's attention.
The conservative host called Wayne an "unlikely voice of reason," hailing him for not getting sucked into the race debate.
"I never thought I would say this, but I have a newfound respect for Lil Wayne," Lahren said Wednesday evening. "Even when he was race baited by Skip Bayless, given a shot to claim victimhood and throw down that poor-me, Kaepernick- Beyonce- Jesse Williams- Jada Pinkett Smith-race card, he chose to speak his truth."
“Lil Wayne even went on to say he appreciates all the white fans at his concerts," she said. "Imagine that, he acknowledges that white people can like rap music, too.”
