Political Commentator Tomi Lahren Says Lil Wayne Has “the Balls to Pass on the Race Card”
Lil Wayne's claim that he never dealt with racism has brought him an unlikely ally. Controversial political commentator Tomi Lahren says she supports Lil Wayne following the rapper's recent comments on Fox Sports 1's new show Undisputed.
“I never thought I would say this, but I have a newfound respect for Lil Wayne,” Lahren said on The Blaze. “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."
Lahren then played the clip where Lil Wayne spoke about the lack of racism in his life.
"God knows I have been nothing but blessed," Weezy told Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe. “My whole path these 33 years have been nothing but a blessing. I have never, and never is a strong word, never dealt with racism and I’m glad I didn’t have to. I don’t know if it’s because of my blessings but it is my reality."
Lahren, who became a popular online personality due to her incendiary opinions, praised Lil Wayne for his comments. She explained how she had a newfound admiration for Weezy and took aim at his critics.
"Bet you didn't expect that - Lil Wayne the unlikely voice of reason," Lahren said. "But of course the Black Lives Matter Twitter militia just couldn't help themselves. They labeled Lil Wayne a coon, an Uncle Tom. You can sit on your half-white ass like Colin Kaepernick, you can raise your Black Power fist and that is applauded. But as soon as a black person rejects the victimhood narrative, they lose their blackness in the eyes of many of their fans."
Lahren said she respects Lil Wayne because he was someone in Black entertainment who "finally has balls to pass on the race card." She capped off the ridiculous rant by stating that racial issues were not prominent until President Barack Obama took office.
