Rapper Lil Wayne has disrupted the liberal narrative about racism by claiming not to be a victim of it and even claiming that racism doesn’t exist. Owing his life to a white policeman has an awful lot to do with it.
In the age of “identity politics,” that’s a blow to the very foundation of today’s Democrat Party and the campaign of its presidential standard-bearer, Hillary Clinton.
Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., brought the predictable avalanche of criticism upon himself in September when he said during an appearance on Fox Sports 1’s “Undisputed” that the large number of white fans at his concerts was “clearly a message that there’s no such thing as racism,” the U.K. Daily Mail reported.
“God knows I have been nothing but blessed,” he told host Skip Bayless. “My whole path, these 33 years have been nothing but a blessing. I have never — never’s a strong word — never dealt with racism and I’m glad I didn’t have to and I don’t know if it’s because of my blessings, but it is my reality,” the Independent Journal reported.
Not exactly God’s gift to the the Clinton campaign, is he?
The rapper took a beating on social media for daring to depart from what has become conventional thinking — indeed a secular religion — for the left, but he has not backed down. He explained that his attitude was shaped by a policeman, “white as snow,” who saved his life when Carter was 12 years old.
The young New Orleans native had accidentally shot himself in the chest and was lying on the floor when police broke into the house searching for guns and drugs. Two officers “blacker than me” concentrated on the search, while a white fellow-officer stopped to see to the wounded youngster.
Carter told the Daily Mail this week that the white officer chided his colleagues for their indifference toward the youngster’s condition and personally took him to the hospital and waited beside him until a doctor said Carter would be OK.
“Yeah, he was a cop, and my life was saved by a white man,” Carter said. “I don’t know what racism is.”
Carter said he was not a victim and did not choose to look at the world in terms of color. He told “Undisputed” he was not sufficiently well versed in the Colin Kaepernick controversy to have an opinion. He also declined to identify with the Black Lives Matter movement.
“I care what’s going on with me and my kids and my world and my mom and who’s going to pay this next bill,” Carter said. “That’s what matters to me.”
He pointed at his head:
“I’m trying to make sense of what’s going on in this world up here.”
We wish him well with what would be a good place to start for any of us. But of course he won’t get much support from liberals who want everyone to be defined not by individuality but by the sacrosanct racial categories of a very tired narrative.
