American rapper Lil Wayne has waded into the gruesome killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man by cops on Monday. The killing has sparked widespread protests with protesters clashing with police in Los Angeles, Denver, Ohio and other cities.

Reacting to the death of George Floyd, Lil Wayne said no one person can be blamed for the injustice against African-Americans. Speaking with Fat Joe in an Instagram live session, the hiphop star said: “I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific. … And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge.”

“We have to actually get into who that person is. And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we’re doing,” Lil Wayne continued.

“What else am I gonna do after that? Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt and they think they did something. What you gonna do after that? Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out there and do something? So, if I ain’t about to do all that, then I ain’t about to do nothing. I’ll pray for ya.”

Lil Wayne said the only way these crimes can stop is when people learn and know more about them.

“It’s actually learning about it. What we need to do is we need to learn about it more. If we wanna scream about something, know what we’re screaming about. If we wanna protest about something, know what we’re protesting about. Because if we wanna get into it, there’s a bunch of facts that we think we know that we don’t know. … We scream about things that, sometimes, they really ain’t true,” he told Fat Joe.

Meanwhile, the four officers in the center of the killing have been fired. The cop, Derek Chauvin who knelt on Floyd’s neck has been charged with 3rd degree murder in accordance to Minnesota state law.
