Earlier today, political commentator, Tomi Lahren of The Blaze, made incendiary comments pertaining to Lil Wayne’s recent interview on Fox Sports 1 new show, Skip and Shannon: Undisputed.
During the “Final Thoughts” portion of The Blaze, Tomi Lahren delivered a provocative rant praising Lil Wayne for having “the balls to pass on the race card” by stating that racism had not overwhelmingly affected him throughout his life.
“God knows I have been nothing but blessed,” Lil Wayne 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.”
After playing the clip showcasing Wayne’s comments during his interview, Lahren continued to convey her admiration.
“I never thought I would say this, but I have a newfound respect for Lil Wayne,” Lahren said. “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.”
Tomi Lahren who is best known, for her wildly controversial statements and political-social philosophies, explained how she arrived at this new found respect for the Young Money rapper (watch below).
“Bet you didn’t expect that – Lil Wayne the unlikely voice of reason,” Lahren stated. “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 Panther 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. Huh.”
After thanking Wayne for acknowledging his white fans and conveniently mentioning his criminal record and jail time, Lahren proclaimed her respect for Wayne is rooted in his decision, unlike many African-Americans in the entertainment industry, to play the race card. Lahren finished her inflammatory monologue by claiming racial issues were not a problem before President Barack Obama took office.
