Lil Wayne understands why some people criticized him for saying racism is over, but claims people don’t see it from his perspective.

The rapper got some backlash last month when he told Fox Sports 1’s “Undisputed” that there was “no such thing as racism” because his concert audiences had a lot of white fans. He also said millennials knew that racism wasn’t cool.

When asked on Tuesday to expand on his thoughts, Lil Wayne told The Associated Press that one of the reasons he feels that way is because a white police officer saved his life when he was 12 years old after he accidentally shot himself in the chest.

“Yeah, he was a cop, and my life was saved by a white man. I don’t know what racism is. I know a good (expletive) named Uncle Bob, though.” Carter said.
