Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. (aka Lil Wayne) has solved the problem of racism in our country: by pretending it doesn't exist!
Interviewed by Fox Sports' Skip Bayless for the show
Skip and Shannon: Undisputed discussed with the legendary rapper about many things, including his tumultuous relationship with music label Cash Money Records, and its CEO Birdman, whom Wayne has had a rivalry with for years.
He also pressed Carter about race and politics, including the Colin Kaepernick "controversy," and pressed him about how in many suburban areas--like West Chester, NY--Carter's concerts are predominantly white.
LW said his fanbase has always included "everybody," and then said, "I don't want to be bashed, because I don't want to seem like I'm on the wrong side. But I thought that was clearly a message that there was no such thing as racism."
You heard it first!
Twitter, of course, is side-eyeing this quote:
I've never been more disappointed in Lil Wayne than I was after seeing his comments on Skip Bayless' new show.

@SennyGeorge Lil Wayne never said racism doesn't exist. He said he thought it didn't but clearly it does.
