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

no title

In case you hadn’t heard, Wiz Khalifa is the latest artist in hot water over racist lyrics.

In his new song Hot Now, the rapper actually says, “Smoke got my eyes lookin’ Korean.”

Oof. Come on, man. It’s 2018.

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?
