‘COON CHIP ACTIVATED’: Rapper Lil Wayne hit with racist backlash after becoming latest black entertainer to support Trump

Chelsea Hander (R), shown in a 2017 political event, scolded 50 Cent, pictured at a festival the same year, for endorsing President Trump.

Even for 50 Cent, Lil Wayne’s move on Thursday was too overtly pro-Trump. “Oh, no Wayne,” he tweeted. “I would have never took this picture.”

It’s easy to see why leftists such as Handler would be disturbed by popular black entertainers voicing support for Trump. Democrats have long relied on their stranglehold on black votes for electoral success.

Trump won just 8 percent of the black vote in 2016, but that was better than Mitt Romney’s 6 percent in 2012. Trump’s approval rating among black voters jumped to 46 percent from 25 percent earlier this month, according to Rasmussen Reports polling. The president hopes to have swayed some black voters by working to reform the criminal-justice system and boost funding to historically black colleges.

Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., has more than 34 million followers on Twitter. He has sold more than 100 million albums globally – fourth-most in history among rappers, according to SA Hip Hop magazine.

The New Orleans native has courted racial controversy in the past, such as when he denounced Black Lives Matter in an ABC interview in July. He said his views on race were shaped partly by an incident in which a white policeman saved his life after he accidentally shot himself in the chest at the age of 12.

Not all of the reaction to Lil Wayne’s Trump endorsement was negative. Conservative black author Melissa Tate said she sees it as another sign of black people waking up to the fact that they have been “used and abused” by Democrats for 50 years. She added that “white liberal supremacist” Handler is “about to remind Lil Wayne that he is black.”
