      Man you don’t get what he is saying here at all do you? Just because he’s black he’s got to do this, do that, be like this, don’t be like that, right? Just do black as people expect you to? Fuck that.

      Why the fuck is he expected to care about the black life’s matter movement? More than, say Eminem care about some bullshit white organization out there doing bullshit for white causes.

        “Anthony Mitchell
        ok so my ancestors dealt with slavery. because i havent experienced it
        first hand and i dont know them its not important? Jewish people today
        werent alive during the holocaust so its not important to them because
        its
        not affecting them directly and they should just worry about their own
        life!? Since when has out of sight out of mind mentality been effective?
        you really are “konfuzed”

        Anytime i see shit about cops abusing
        their power with any race i care. why? because that shit can be me on
        any given day. get out your fucking bubble and look around you. blm has
        protested for police injustice of all races not just blacks. just
        because i aint the one getting my ass beat doesnt mean i should be
        passive like “its not happening to me oh well thats they problem” what
        kinda thought process is that? you and wayne on the same shit?”

      • TYRONE POWERS

        people like you are what’s wrong with society. miserable souls spending life alone. empathy, do some research on it. it’ll shock your sociopathic mind to learn how normal humans function and feel.

  • Konfuzed

    If we all had the same mentality as Wayne I think we’d be better off. A lot of people care too much about other people’s lives enough to distract them on what’s going on with their own life.

      preach!

      U mean ignorant??

    • 100squad

      Wtf? In a couple days or weeks , he will recant those statements. To me it seems like he was either to sober or off something. Something is goin on with Wayne that’s for sure.

      • Konfuzed

        He wasn’t talking about slavery nor was he saying that black lives dont matter. He was telling the lady that racism only exist to those want it to exist and he’s an example. Hes black, rich, and famous. Simply because he focuses on himself thats what has made him successful.

        • Anthony Mitchell

          “racism only exist to those want it to exist” wait………what? why would minorities want racism to exist? how have they(we) benefited from racism? You can not convince me that his Wanye has not experience racism at one time in his long ass career? hes been rich since a teen. hes a gang member(inactive or not) has a shit ton of gang/face tats and hes black and he lives in lousianna. with all the police corruptness going on there hes never been pulled over because hes in a fancy ride or anything?! Man hes full of shit lol. Jay-z was in a full suit and was profiled at barneys. and he looks far more “professional”(for lack of a better word) than Wayne. Hes clearly fishing for attention since hes in music limbo.

          • Konfuzed

            We feel victims because we don’t focus on ourselves. We like to blame everyone else for our lack of effort. He’s been mistreated by others but doesn’t put race in front of him, its just another person being rude to him. Our society has become very picky with anything anyone says. Wayne had that emmett till verse a long time ago no one tripped until we started having more access to the web.

          • TYRONE POWERS

            do you know what empathy is? most people can keep it pushing in their own lives while maintaining concern for those around them in bad situations. if everyone was as selfish as you, people would still be living in a caste system under some king and the majority of minorities today would not exist.

          • Konfuzed

            Only care about those who are most important to you. Don’t get distracted with everyone’s else problem.

            Oppressed people will act in an oppressed manner. But when we know better we must do just that. I’m not giving anybody a pass on actions that they should indeed be held accountable for. I do agree that there are people who choose to point the finger at everyone but the one in the mirror. But that in itself has nothing to do with the root of racism, segregation and a lot of other social/civil injustices that has transpired. By that I mean , people didn’t start off slaving themselves, or cracking a whip to they own backs, they didnt put on a uniform and badge hop in a cruiser and start profiling or harassing or for that fact shooting themselves in the back and then saying that they ran, had a gun or resisted arrest. Not saying the community doesn’t need to be accountable for what goes on in our neighborhood politics but it doesn’t make it any easier when even the ones whom are sworn to serve & protect , just harass and neglect.

          • Ye’

            Stfu already damn you’re on a hip hop site

          • Anthony Mitchell

            suck my whole dick pussy boy.

          • Anthony Mitchell

            On a hip hop site and the topic is about social issues dickface. You shut your bitch ass up faggot boy. Riding wayne dick like its your only way of transportation.

        • Supreme Trunks

          But you can’t call a small percentage of our population doing well as not racism. If I had a room to make people successful let in 9 white people and 1 black, that black person would have a skewed pov to say I’m not racist cause ” hey he let me in”.

    • 100squad

      History has shown us and not just in this country but the whole world that that approach is a flawed way of thinking. Division & Unification are the two ingredients that when mixed together can weaken even the strongest foundation.

      • Dave

        I agree

      • goldentiger3

        Think of it this way, racism will never leave this earth as long as white people and the word minority exist. Wayne only gave his perspective and many black men share his pov because A. They can’t relate or B. They keep to themselves. Not saying the police brutality can always be prevented its just people know their place. If they’re not fighting for it they stay out of the way. I always stood by the backlivesmatter movement but what can they do to effectively stop police brutality without giving their lives. Everyone who has done a major change in history to help African Americans has ended up murdered. Abraham Lincoln, JFK, MLK, Malcolm X and their are others. The internet is to focused on opinions, having the slightest difference in your opinion immediately makes you an enemy. Thats why we can’t unify.

        • 100squad

          I love how this topic has sparked some real thought out of those who has chosen to share some perspective. Ignorance is never an exscuse..Just because something has not effected you personally does not mean it does not effect the community you live in, the one you love live within, the one your from that you claim you care about or better yet the community you do business within. The lives you have named are remembered and regardless of the way those lives ended they left an impact. The proof of that was shown in the fact you chose to reference them. Better the real proof is in the context of why they were even able to be referenced to begin with because of their works, whom they where and character. I guess it’s true it’s easier to attempt to ignore something than deal with it head on..

          The man route ain’t for everybody.

        • 100squad

          It more classism. Than an racist effort.

          In China, you dont call a chineese man Native Chineese or in England a Native Englishman. They are English or Chineese,..And thats because the definition of the word Native doesnt fit within that context. But yet we call Indians Native Americans, instead of well, Americans. And yet most white people would often becalled in many of instances American, like how does that work? Because if titled each other differently just like the example I just shared doesnt that make us second class citizens ?

          It seems to be that the structure of this country was set up that everyone who not of an Caucasian descent or appearance be greeted as such on a lot of levels.

          • Supreme Trunks

            Yeah but white people only did that to regard people NOT white that lived in America before them as natives. In Australia the term is aboriginee

    • Dave

      wow my man, you said it perfect. Look In, not out

    • Stokanator

      There is absolutely no question about it, you are 100% correct!!

      BLM claims to be concerned with black lives, yet between 90% & 95% of young black males are killed by other young black males! If they wanna preach that black lives matter, then all black lives matter and the color of the killer shouldn’t even be a factor! Yet they make no effort to curb violence amongst each other in their own communities!! Hell when there’s a police shooting that includes a black man, they don’t even wait to hear the facts pertaining to the case, they’re organizing to protest and encourage civil disobedience and create whatever storyline or narrative that draws puts them at the forefront. BLM is nothing more then an organization of a few power hungry individuals who exploit kids and young adults into join their ranks for the sakes of making the main organizers feel important

      • Supreme Trunks

        Stop. Try again.The black lives matter movement was created SPECIFICALLY for police brutality. Just like ads for polar bears are SPECIFICALLY for polar bears and not every endangered species. If you want to focus on violence in black communities look up your local “stop the violence” or peace rallies in your area. Or better yet if you feel it’s not addressed enough start one yourself with a catchy slogan.

  • Anthony Mitchell

    “carter 5 isnt dropping. quick gotta find a way to stay relevant”

      Damnnnnnn hahaha makes you wonder..

    • WOWWOWWOW

      Usually, that wannabe relevant person takes the first shot..

  • dhusu

    why ya’ll on his back for? the man expressed how he felt. do u want him to lie to your face? wayne is new money, rich as fuck. BLM does not apply to many of these rappers furthermore any connection that he had to Magnolia is dead & gone after they tore that shit down he cant relate

    • Herbz 4 Breakfast

      False

      • dhusu

        it doesn’t matter to Wayne just like it doesnt matter to ASAP rocky

  • kushxchevys

    My niggas smoked out like a bad transmission

  • Je’sus

    The man was rich since like 16 how Tf would he really know. He only cares about NO

    • SlimJuve25

      from his comments he care about no one but himself

  • kushxchevys

    My nigga is just being him just watched da interview . WHo gives a fuck what da next person thinks fuck you

    • SlimJuve25

      yeah being himself a stupid motherfucker the same person who signed a bad deal with birdman wait years later an be like wait a minute this ain’t a good deal an stop working go on tv an cry like thats going to fix everything . . . smh

  • wayne is basically saying “how can america be overwhelmingly racist, if me — a little black kid from poverty in new orleans can become this rich?” and that’s a good question, but it’s also something a person who can’t see beyond their own nose would say.

    as with everything socially. there usually isn’t an all or nothing, one size fits all perspective. me myself throughout life, I’ve had pretty good interactions and friendships with people of all races. yet at the same time, I’ve fucked a few white girls here and there that say they like black dudes because their dad hates them. shit if you don’t think racism exists go over to a few alt-right websites.

    I think there are quite a few racist people in america, and quite a few of them hold positions of power. but I think the large majority of americans are not racists, with a lot of them holding positions of power.

    • Dave

      Hahaha oh man, he said because their dads hate them lmao.. I feel you though, racism is taught in the household growing up mostly from what ive seen

      • yea man chicks are weird like that. you’d be surprised how many white chicks who chase black dudes have racist fathers lol. but def man, that racism shit is a learned behavior tho

        • Supreme Trunks

          Yeah I met some. They “cool with black” but don’t want to let them come see the folks. I’m glad you understood wayne’s point cause I see what he is saying too but he’s missing the bigger picture. I wonder if he sat there and thought about, “while I’m making millions how much is universal making off me?” Those birdman tactics didn’t start with birdman. I said it earlier to someone else, I don’t consider white people throwing a few of us bread crumbs as racism being over.

          • my nigga trunks you know what’s up lol , some of em will pull that shit on you quick. yea man I agree with everything you said. just because a few people go up to highest levels of class doesn’t mean that everything is all good. remember after obama got elected they started saying that this was post racial america…7 years and some change later we see that those people jumped the gun a little to early. but the old way is dying out, but it damn sure won’t go without a a hell of a fight

  • TheGameTagerZ

    Wayne’s BLM support comment in the following video seemed very sarcastic tbh.

    He’s not wrong though, he can’t relate to a borderline terrorist organization. He’s right, there’s bad cops doing bad things and the force definitely needs to reform, but you don’t retaliate by destroying your own neighborhood, killing cops that have nothing to do with the person who died etc.

    • Gabriel Robert Thomas

      when have BLM killed cops, doofus? making shit up to fit your narrative isnt productive at all.

      • TheGameTagerZ

        Micah Xavier Johnson. Reports say he was a “lone wolf” which is bs. Every time someone in BLM does something regressive they’re “lone wolves” no one in BLM can do no wrong amiright?

        I no longer support that terrorist organization since they didn’t stick to the message. They choose the regressive route instead.

        • Gabriel Robert Thomas

          micah was a an army vet who had ties to the new black panther party, and other groups that are extreme, as opposed to BLM which has a peaceful message. yes there are regressive people in BLM, just like in any other movement, but to paint it as such is missing the whole point of the movement. also, it seems you do want to have a production conversation now, but youre the one who initially said BLM kills cops. if your true intentions were a productive conversation, then you wouldnt have started off by saying something that isnt true. just saying.

        • Supreme Trunks

          bro I hear you but I feel like you’re missing the point of an “organization”. Whatever an individual does that differs from the actual point of an organization is ONLY reflected on the individual. Case in point, you start a group for hip hop heads to talk about music and someone shows up to one of your events and kills someone. What does that have to do with your movement or your group? Literally nothing unless in your group by laws you advocate killing random people.

          • TheGameTagerZ

            You’re the only reasonable response out of the whole shit show. No name calling, no ad hominems just straight to the response. The issue here is (which can be argued in both sides to be fair) that anyone can be BLM and since anyone can be BLM there’s no organization/leadership. From what I was told, the Black Panthers actually punished you for going out of line for example. There’s no repercussions of doing something wrong in this movement. There’s no BLM uniform, hats or anything really. What I was arguing earlier is that I refuse to believe every person that acts up is a “lone wolf” and not apart of the movement. While that may be the case sometimes I can’t sit here and say none of it can ever be connected.

          • Supreme Trunks

            Now there is great point. Every group has rules and if you break it they have the right to kick you out. N this is a very strange thing we have with BLM because it started off (in my opinion) as a movement and something to show like “stop the war” in the 60’s but now it’s morphed into a group. So now it’s got the qualities of both so you’re right there should be some kind of guidelines which I think Oprah commented on that when she first heard about BLM. That it has no proper leadership

      • SlimJuve25

        white people always call blm “borderline terrorist organization” even tho the news always have said blm do peacefully protest the others come then fuck shit up which is not wrong cause that all white people understand

        • TheGameTagerZ

          I’m not white at all though.

          But then I’m not black if I don’t support BLM right?

          • SlimJuve25

            your point are all lies Micah Xavier Johnson was a vet that tried to get even nothing to do with the blm even if he supported it they didn’t tell him to do it

          • TheGameTagerZ

            BLM didn’t have to tell him nothing I never suggested that. Are we going to lie and say there are many who make this movement look bad?

            I agreed in the beginning simply due to the fact that there are people in the police force that shouldn’t even be there and doing the things they’re doing to innocent blacks. It wasn’t long until it turned into a shit show.

            It’s embarrassing to see what the movement turned into. It’s not only a “white people” thing because black people like me hate to see what this turned into. There are good people in the movement, but that number of good people are snuffed out by the ignorant ones who beat people up, rob stores etc to “release their anger”.

            Honestly trying to have a productive conversation here because all I see is a echo chamber of people saying the same agreements in difference sentences.

          • SlimJuve25

            those people that do the fucked up shit aren’t BLM, they come from all around cause alot of people are there an rob store an etc cause they think they can get away with it, your brain washed by fox cause they lump them all together to discredit the movement

          • TheGameTagerZ

            This is why I can’t have a productive conversation here because I’m either “white” or “brainwashed” by Fox. It has nothing to do with that, so you’re going to tell me that 0 people in the BLM movement are regressive? You don’t even have to dig that deep to find these things.

            This is what people who support the movement do. Resort to Ad hominem attacks instead of just saying what they want to say. You’re not going to see me telling you that you only watch left-wing media outlets because that adds nothing to the conversation.

          • SlimJuve25

            well if you say the same thing they are hard for you to say your different. . . .almost the same thing we are talking about, you think the looters an blm are the same, i think you an people at fox are about the same thing. . .

          • TheGameTagerZ

            Lets just agree to disagree because all you’re doing is attacking me for my skin color (which you got wrong) and what I watch (which I rarely go on fox). Instead of properly defending the movement like I said earlier you resort to the high school “well you’re irrelevant anyway” kinds of attacks.

            The movement is disorganized, no real leadership, regressive etc. That’s my stance on it. If you choose to turn a blind eye to what’s going on then feel free. I agree on principle that police need a reform, I agree that there are some people in BLM who wish to peacefully protest and do good, but the gap is too far and wide to conclude that BLM is a great and organized movement.

            Enjoy the rest of your afternoon.

          • SlimJuve25

            lmao only my 1st comment mention your skin color, none of the rest did, you lump looter an blm together then i said you an fox are the same, i guess it only right when your able to do it thats childish then run away, you also enjoy the rest of your afternoon

  • Brock Thunder

    I love Waynes perspective
    Fuck y’all dumb ass haters

  • Mike Donovan

    i see where he is coming from. BLM has been hijacked by whites since it left Ferguson. The mission statement replete with things about lgbt and being recognized as part of mission statement is so ridiculous as if sexuality has anything to do with the movement. Right now allBLM does is agitate white folks and spread propaganda through facebook. No mass cooperation amongst blacks, not boycotting. White folks are very simple. they only respect loss of money or loss of blood. Since the later is not feasible, the first must be leaned on. I have not seen any movements for boycotting sales for holidays. mutafuckas really dont want the good fight thats why it remains online and in no way mirrors the way our elders moved

    • kautious18

      Wayne’s not saying anything u just wrote–so how do u see where he’s coming from

      • Mike Donovan

        he didnt need to say that but it the outrage t baffles me. i dont think he needed to say that. the man is from new orleans. clearly he has a lue but i respect his right to feel as he does. gates.. i agree with too. this shit is a faux. I’ll give it collective consciousness albeit misdirected

        • kautious18

          Ignorance is bliss—i remember solider boy said -shout out to the slave masters – w/o them we wouldn’t be able to have this ice and tattoos—waynes emmitt till line still makes me feel some kinda way—-but hey they got money so it’s kool to be ignorant

          • Mike Donovan

            bruh these are people why do yall hold on to shit like this. I think you misuse ignorant he’s not he just thinks different than you. there are millions of others who are not like this but i want say this. i have moved and thought different. Since i was 7 years old i have been acutely aware of the mob thought of blacks. If yo talk different get good grades , youre a sellout if you think as an individual you are criticized. isnt that what the elders died for. But we are not even close to togetherness. One only need to come to nyc where i have been for almost 10 years and see the division between west indian and american ( are you west indian or a black? common question and ignorant on so many levels) in BK One group on one side of parkway the other opposite. They get no respect as a whole in this city keep now hoods in the 5 boroughs. so again no cooperation nationwide is issue and did the ancestors not die and get ass whooped so that we may have and stand tall in our individual thought. I believe yall diminish blacks when you lump and them and down them for thinking individually because it does fit your script

          • kautious18

            Word–so you agree w soldier boy shouting out the slave masters and Wayne giving emmitt tills overly proud killers a bar— and I’m wrong for acknowledging their ignorance? LOL

          • Mike Donovan

            be an adult you are really hanging o to these lyrics its poetry. what about “blow up like the world trade” youre outrage is fake. speaking on beating the pussy are you that dense? can you only see 1 degree in a world of 360 degrees. he also brought light to till for a lot of very young people. I i dont dive a fuck about what an 18 year old nigga said in a rap lyric. look how dear you hold on to that shit that is really nothing. I do argue that if we came over here were treated fairly and integrated into white society we would not be the savages and as strong as we are today. nigga is arguing over a bar. fuck hip hop. we’re talking about life. this is on the same level as the internet movement. you disregarded all i said to quote raps lyrics like they mean something to the consciousness of black people (the two corny lines you quote and it was replete with a weak ass LOL. you niggas are comdey and hardly real

          • kautious18

            Dense? Speaking on beating the pussy— the pussy being emmitt till who was tortured and murdered then thrown in the river— then covered up by the town– then the killers bragged about it after–ok—but u do argue that if we came over here were treated fairly and integrated into white society we would not be the SAVAGES and as STRONG as we are today—-hilarious–like I said ignorance is bliss– and I apologize for even having this trade w u

          • Mike Donovan

            Again, there you go with that one degree look and a history leson. Its poetry and art the same way comedy is unappolectic. you fell for the fake pc outrage. You came to the party in a tuxedo looking clean as a muthafucka and i saw you had Perrier Jouet box but when open the box you pulled out Thunderbird. Youre underprepared to discuss this with me. you only have rap lyrics and fake laughs. Faux elitist. You have constantly misused ignorant. Someone not having your viewpoint does not make them ignorant. This is why our movement is weak

          • kautious18

            Those were real laughs actually— and a black man referencing emmitt til get beat like a pussy—and a black man shouting out slave masters during an interview isn’t art or poetry— it’s ignorant and coonerey

          • Mike Donovan

            and most of what you typed was some real bullshit

          • kautious18

            All of what u typed was some real dumb shit— starting off w “I see where he’s coming from” then proceeded to say a bunch of things he wasn’t even saying

          • Mike Donovan

            hmmhmm

  • Mansa Musa

    I feel so sorry for my brother he must be going blind if he a former geto boy has never experienced racism the geto you come from was set up through racism its not a accident & b4 u speak against ur own its better to say I don’t want to talk bout that cause all u did was give racist white people ammunition think b4 u speak my brother this is not a freestyle rap this is actual people’s lives!!!

  • BoutThreeFiddy

    Just like 2pac one minute its we got to stick together, rise above this bullshit the next its thug life nigga thug life. You ask who wayne is you get 12 different answers…..

    • Cyrus Inglis

      Say what you want about Wayne’s comments, which I think most of us would agree are off-base, but there’s no reason to compare them to anything Pac said. Pac didn’t flip-flop between his social stances; he simply had two perspectives from which he created music from, the first of which was what things should be like and the second of which was what they actually were like. In my opinion it is impossible to be a truly socially responsible rapper without addressing both of those perspectives.

  • Dereck Steele

    Smh some people don’t need to be interviewed about real life subjects..i’m sure some crazed Wayne fans will find away to take up for him on this silliness lol

  • Ye’

    How did he contradict himself? Everybody have to be down with black lives matter or people get mad wtf?! Fuck black lives matter fuck all lives matter….

  • Spookeysmoker

    Everybody that’s mad at him don’t stand for shit march or anything lol

  • John Jay BK

    This nigga ZOOTED… but yeah on the inside this is how most of us feel about shit that happens to other people.
