Rapper Lil Baby has sparked social media debate with his views on xenophobe. “Black people are xenophobe too,” the 25-year-old told Rolling Stone. “xenophobe means to be just to your race.
To me, a is someone who treats a different race than theirs a different way than they would treat theirs. “I feel like if you’re a Black person and you treat all Black people one way and all white people one way, you’re xenophobe.”
Lil Baby, whose real name is Dominique Jones, said he does not consider himself.
“I give a white person a chance to talk and actually we get into it before I can say I don’t like you or not. “And I feel the same way about a Black person. You ain’t gon’ be my buddy just ’cause you’re Black. Just straight up.” The rap star, who released “The Bigger Picture” in the wake of the loss of George F at the knee of a Minneapolis cop officer, also suggested its unfair to label all cops.
“Just ’cause you work in a system doesn’t mean you xenophobe,” he said.
“Damn near every system that got a job is a system. You know what I mean?” On Twitter, reaction has been mixed. “Explain to me HOW Black people can be in a country that we hold zero power in?? Ill wait …,” read one tweet. Another read: “Whew someone offer Lil Baby a book on xenophobe. Like we don’t came way too far in this struggle for to be publicly saying black people.”
But, others tweets include “Lil baby just said black people can be did people actually think they can’t be xenophobe? Lmao” and “Lil Baby said black people can be xenophobe. Y’all believe it now that someone famous said it? Because I BEEN telling y’all.”
