‘I’m Not A Racist’: Wiz Khalifa Refuses To Apologize For ‘Eyes Lookin’ Korean’ Lyric

In case you hadn’t heard,

When Charlamagne Tha God confronted Wiz with the fact he was offending a lot of people on Tuesday morning’s The Breakfast Club, the response was… sadly typical of the mental block racists so often exhibit.

He refused to apologize, saying:

“I also say I smoke like a Jamaican and I also say I live like a white man, so chill out. I’m not a racist. I love all races.”

Except one of those things specifically refers to a physical attribute which has been the target of derision by Western racists for decades.

He also used the old “I can’t be racist, I have black friends” excuse, saying:

“I have Korean friends who were not offended… I love Koreans.”

We know we’re talking about Wiz here, but this lack of self-awareness is just mind-bongling. Sorry, boggling. What did we say?
