And Now, a Word From Stacey Dash on Lil' Wayne 'Never' Experiencing Racism

Here we go.

Published September 15th

Lil' Wayne recently said in an interview that he's never directly experiened racism in his life. Taking to her blog, Stacey Dash penned a blog post, commending the rapper for his words.

"They wouldn't want to ask me that," Wayne said when asked to speak on the recent protests led by NFL star Colin Kaepernick. "They wouldn't want my answer to represent it, because God knows, I have been nothing but blessed. 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."

When giving her opinion on Wayne's comments, Dash pointed out that the conductors of the interview, Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe wrongly assumed that the rapper had experienced racism just because he is Black.

"Sharpe said there was plenty of racism where he grew up in Georgia and assumed the same thing happened to Wayne who is from New Orleans," she wrote. "However, Sharpe said one can only speak from their own experiences."

She ended with this shady statement: "As shocked as he was, Sharpe did well by giving kudos to Wayne for his positive experiences and complimented him for resisting the temptation to embellish a story that never happened It's an incredibly hopeful segment."
