Wiz Khalifa has a candid solution for dealing with racism in Hollywood – stop caring. In a new interview, the rapper feels Black people should remain indifferent about getting recognized by the white-dominated Oscars. He also shares his “crazy” encounters with police brutality.

“Cops there are crazy,” he told Playboy. “I’ve never been pulled over without them having a gun to my head. Even with traffic stops, they’ll put a gun to your head and say, ‘Get the f—- out the car. What you got?’ Searching you, breaking s—, twisting your arm.”

His interactions with local authorities gave him insight into the Black Lives Matter movement. As protests mounted around the country in the wake of police killing several unarmed Black people like Michael Brown and Sandra Bland, there has been a push to require police to wear body cameras. But the military brat said those won’t do any good.

“Body cameras? That s— is just to make people think we’re safe. We ain’t safe,” he said. “It’s not about fighting the cops physically. You have to know how to outsmart them, and what they can and can’t do to you. That won’t make things all good, but it will help level the playing field.”

Something else that will help level the playing field is Black people’s attitudes about racism in Tinseltown and beyond.

The rapper tells the magazine he did not pay much attention to the controversy swirling around the Oscars ceremony, where no Black actors were nominated for each of the 24 categories. But he thinks the answer is for Black people to remain unbothered.

“I feel like black people are always being s— on,” he said. “They stand up and s— on us publicly at the Oscars, and when you put gas on it, then it becomes a thing. Black people should boss up and say ‘We don’t give a f—-,’ and then really not give a f—. If you nominate me and I get an award, cool. But if you don’t, I don’t give a f—.”

  1. Easy for you to say, Wiz. They just keep you alive so they can exploit you as the half-baked life of the party. Ask Snoop.

  2. James Green says:

    saying that "you dont care" to a racist is like giving them justification to continue to shit on us..we shouldve look for their validation..we should pool our resources together to create and build our own infrastructures that aplify our accomplishments…and support those that already does…why in the music industry blacks an browns dont create then support their own Distributiion Co…we have to stop feeding those who just dangles crumbs over our heads, and we think we eating..no their are eating off our crafts..off our ideas..off our blood, sweat and tears..Warrior Up!

  3. They don't consider themselves black.

  4. OK HOLLYWACK IS JEWISH…IT'S NOT WHITE ALTHOUGH THEY'LL PORTRAY THEMSELVES AS EUROPEAN WHITE BY CHANGING THEIR NAMES.

    YOU'RE NOTHING IN HOLLYWOOD UNLESS YOU'RE JEWISH…WHEN BLACK PEOPLE REALIZE THERE'S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHITE JEW AND WHITE EUROPEAN, THEN WILL YOU UNDERSTAND YOUR CRIES MEAN NOTHING

    WIZ HIT THIS RIGHT OUT THE PARK! BLACK PEOPLE CARE TOO MUCH ABOUT AN IDOL THE JEWS WERE COMMANDED NOT TO DO AND YET BLACK FOLK ARE SO STUPID TO FALL IN THAT TRAP.

    AMEN WIZ!

    Wiz Khalifa sounds as stupid as he looks. But then again that sh it that common said last year, takes the cake. He said " Black people need to show more love to white people and maybe racism would end. To both common and Mr Khalifa I say to you go sit down some where and and listen to the acceptance speech that actor Jesse Williams gave when he accepted his humanitarian award at the Bet awards 2016 and don't open your mouth again until you have it memorized backward and forward. And COMMON pay particular attention to the part of Jesses speech when he said " THAT ITS NOT THE RESPOCIBILITY OF THE BRUTILUZED, TO COMFORT THE BYSTANDER. IN other words a we can stop all of the shuffling and dancing and jiving to keep white people feeling like we are ok with the way things have been going for the last 250 years and we don't hold them responsible. There are a number reggae songs over the years that I Have used psalms 19 and 137 that says " They carried us away in captivity requiring of us a song" in other words the BRUTILLIZED are required to comfort there tormentors, and oppressors.
