TI says "I Would Have Tested His Jaw" to Pastor's "White Blessing"
During their talk Giglio mentioned that he wanted to changed the cultural term of "white privilege" to "white blessing," so it wouldn't "carry the stigma of guilt, but a blessing that slavery helped to build this nation."
Listen to Pastor Louie Giglio tell rapper Lecrae and Chick-fil-A CEO, Dan Cathy, that sure, slavery was bad but it ended up being a blessing for white people. Sickening. pic.twitter.com/QMWKgZnIUX— David Hoffman (@atDavidHoffman) June 16, 2020
As expected, that remark quickly brought heavy backlash and soon after Giglio offered an apology - but the frustration didn't end with him, it extended to Lecrae as well for not standing up when Giglio first made the comment. Lecrae said he spoke with Giglio afterwards, but that wasn't enough for T.I.
"[Lecrae] exercised extreme caution, and I respect that, because I would've tested [his jaw probably," T.I. said. Then, he spoke about Louie Giglio and his apology. "Nah, bruh. That's what I keep trying to tell y'all. They can give a f*ck less about what we think or how we feel. They only care about how much we spend."
