“If we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves (Black Americans) for not doing more than what we think we’re doing,” Lil Wayne says.
The renowned rapper further explains what he meant saying, “And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge.”
Lil Wayne's opinion caused a massive stir online.

platinumfox_rn backed Lil Wayne, saying:
I get his point of view. You can’t blame all cops. Some of y’all got relatives that are cops. Black cops been speaking out against this abuse. Some of y'all do need to be more open minded. Y'all out here dissing the white folks that's on our side too. Remember some white ppl helped blacks escape slavery
melvingregg, however, vehemently disagreed with Lil Wayne:
Asking for justice is bigger than the cop killing Floyd. It’s the cycle of cops killing black ppl and not getting prosecuted and held responsible which gives them a pass to keep killing us. Wayne on another planet
bruce_no_wayne's who also agreed with the rapper took his explanation a step further saying:
What’s wrong with his opinion? He basically saying he don’t know what he can REALLY Do so he chooses to keep his mouth shut. What’s wrong with that? Also he saying not to blame every cop just the ones responsible, still not wrong.
Meanwhile, the 6-year-old daughter of George Floyd who passed on while a white police officer kneeled on his neck until he stopped breathing has received university scholarship.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Facebook handle of the Texas Southern University, it was categorically stated that the university has decided to honour the memory of George Floyd with the gesture.
On the day George Floyd was laid to rest, Texas Southern University announced it would give a full scholarship. "TSU's Board of Regents, with its foundation board, has approved a fund to provide a full scholarship for Floyd's beloved daughter, Gianna," the statement said.
