Former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke Is Latest to Praise Lil Wayne Over Racism Comments

Tomi Lahren of The Blaze got pretty excited when rapper Lil Wayne said he had never experienced racism. She praised him for, in her view, speaking the truth, though she did acknowledge that she is a “white girl” who believes racism does exist in some form.

To see the woman who went off on Beyoncé and Colin Kaepernick for being so vocal about police brutality and racial inequality lauding Wayne was interesting, but seeing David Duke do it is something else. Duke was once a Grand Wizard of the KKK and he often speaks about white nationalism. He’s a very polarizing person as a result.
