Lil Wayne is not well liked by some advocates of the Black Lives Matter movement at the moment. Tunechi made some negative remarks regarding the movement during an interview with ABC’s Nightline.
“What is it? What do you mean? That just sounds weird,” Wayne said in response to a question on BLM asked by Nightline’s Linsey Davis. “I don’t know, that you put a name on it… It’s not a name, it’s not, ‘whatever whatever.’ It’s somebody got shot by a policeman for a f*****d up reason.”
Weezy went onto says racism doesn’t exist in his world.
“I am a young, black rich motherf****r,” he continued. “If that don’t let you know that America understand black motherf*****s these days, I don’t know what it is. That man white, he filming me. I’m a n***a. I don’t know what you mean, man. Don’t come at me with that dumb s**t, man. My life matter. Especially to my b****s.”
T.I. was among those who found issue with Wayne’s stance.
@liltunechi This is my son & daughter showing me this for the first time & asking me what you mean? I'm at a complete loss of words here. Wayne I've known you over a decade. Our daughters grew up together practically. Reginae' spent countless times at my house with Niq-Niq when you were in prison & you extended my daughter the same courtesy when I was in the same position. Our relationship outside of music is what makes me sensitive to your disposition. I KNOW you wired a bit different than most other responsible adults, but still nigga U TRIPPING!!!! I don't know what you goin thru,or what you are attempting to avoid but this shit is absolutely unacceptable!!!! You're disrespecting yourself,bringing shame on your family name & tarnishing your legacy. You have children (including mines prior to now) that have looked up to you. You have sons & a daughter that depend upon your leadership. Bro if you don't stand for something out here,all the money,jewelry,cars,mansions bandannas & hit records don't mean shit!!!! Our people are being oppressed!!! We are being hunted,captured & slaughtered out here daily!!! You have to get outta that bubble that you've been living in & get out here & educate yourself on what's going on around US!!! I'm always here to share whatever knowledge or understanding I may have to assist your growth & development,but u MUST STOP this buffoonery & coonin' you out here doin. You looking like somebody who has something to gain or lose by pretending like it's not as bad as BLM making it seem & you're not aware of an issue that needs to be addressed. That's what would be considered "Uncle Tom Shit"…. I know U,YOURE BETTER THAN THIS!!!!! I've been proud to call myself a fan & a friend of Lil Wayne ,but if that must end in order to stand up for those who can't do it for themselves…So be it. If you're not prepared for a question in an interview,say No Comment Bro. But stop embarrassing yourself & everyone out here who's been supporting you. There is no middle ground. Oppression knows no neutral party,either you're part of the oppressed,or you with the oppressor. There is no such thing as oppression not affecting you. It's #USorELSE out here

Lil Wayne first expressed his thoughts on race during an appearance on Fox Sports 1’s “Undisputed.”
Tunechi was asked his thoughts on Colin Kaepernick’s protest of the national anthem by kneeling.
“I respect the man and his decisions. I have no opinion on it. I’m not into enough to even give an opinion.
Skip followed up this question to ask Wayne his thoughts on race relations in America.
Wayne says he has been blessed in his 33 years on earth.
“I have never — and never is a strong word – I’ve never dealt with racism,” he said.
Wayne expanded on his thoughts on racism during an interview with The Associated Press, saying a white officer saved his life when he was 12 years old.
“At the age of 12 years old I shot myself. I was in the house. Police knocked on my door. I was right there. They knocked the door down. Everybody jumped over my body to go get the guns and drugs and whatever they could find. It took one guy to stop right there and curse everybody that hopped over me out.
Wayne said the cop who saved his live was “white as snow.” He said the officers who hopped over him was blacker than him.
“I don’t know what racism is,” he said. “I know a good motherf****r named Uncle Bob, though.”
