Speaking with Rapper Fat Joe on Instagram, Rapper Lil Wayne reacted to the death of George Floyd by urging people not to rush to judgement and make over-generalizations based on a specific incident.
I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific.
We have to get so specific and what I mean by that, we have to stop viewing it from such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody of a certain race or everybody with a badge.
We have to actually get into who that person is and if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we’re doing.
Per Breitbart, Lil Wayne, 37, is regarded by many people as one of the greatest most influential hip-hop artists of his generation. And he’s been criticized by the far-left for his intense skepticism of social justice movements such as Black Lives Matter and former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s decision to “take a knee” in protest of perceived racial injustice.
“The reason people always ask me why you don’t say this, why you don’t do that, what else am I gonna do after that?” Lil Wayne told Fat Joe. “Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt, they think they did something.”
“I mean, what you gon’ do after that?” he posited. “Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out and do something? If I ain’t about to do all that, then I ain’t about to do nothing… I pray for them.”
