A few weeks ago, there was a worldwide protest to commemorate the unjustifiable death of Geord Floyd by some white American police officers. The “Black Lives Matter” mantra swept across all continents with the main focus on zero tolerance to racism in this 21st century.
Reacting to this in a video chat a few hours ago, Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., better known by his stage name Lil Wayne has encouraged all and sundry to work for humanity instead of skin colour, societal status, and so on.
The 37-year-old American rapper, singer, songwriter, record executive, entrepreneur, and actor has recounted his near death experience 25 years ago.
According to the rapper, at age 12, he deliberately shot himself with a 9 mm handgun, and an off-duty white police officer — Robert Hoobler drove him to the hospital. This, he has always maintained as the reason why there is no need to be divided in racial lines.
Regarded by many contemporaries as one of the most influential hip hop artists of his time, Lil Wayne reechoed what he has always said about the white officer who saved his black ass.
Lil Wayne, once again asserted in the video chat;
“After accidentally shooting himself in the chest at 12 years old, Lil Wayne was saved by a white police officer named Uncle Bob. “He was white as snow. Black cops were running right past me looking for drugs. My life was saved by a white man. I don’t know what racism is. I know a good muthafucka named Uncle Bob though.”
