Lil Wayne Weighs In on the Right Wing

Is there any subject on which we would not like to hear Lil Wayne's opinion? No, there is not. So, we were very happy to learn that he addressed the Republican primary race in a recent interview with Vibe. The full piece isn't available yet, but in an online excerpt, Weezy explains that he does not feel exactly embraced by the GOP, saying that he believes some of the far-right's criticism of President Obama has a racial component: “You learn from what the right-wing is doing and you take something from it ... I feel like as a people the most that we can do is better ourselves and learn. Then look at yourself and ask ‘Am I the person they’re talking about or am I not?’ You have to make the most of who you are because the Republicans are never going to like us.” [Vibe]
