California rapper, Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., known by his stage name Snoop Dogg, has described Arnold Schwarzenegger as a racist. The gin and juice rapper said the former governor had shortened the sentence of a white convicted murderer, Esteban Nunez, from 16 years to 7 and had him released on Monday. According to Snoop, the move was because Nunez’s father is a friend of Schwarzenegger’s and former California State Assembly speaker, Fabian Nunez. He condemned the move in a video posted by entertainment site, TMZ in strong words.
He called him a “punk motherf******” and a “racist piece of s***.” He is said to be angry because his friend, Stanley “Tookie” Williams, who is a famous member of the Crips and black, had died by lethal injection in San Quentin Prison in 2005.
As a Republican, Schwarzenegger was first elected on 7 October, 2003, in a special recall election to replace then-Governor Gray Davis. He was sworn in on 17 November, to serve the remainder of Davis’s term. He was then re-elected on 7 November, 2006, in California’s 2006 gubernatorial election, to serve a full term as governor, defeating Democrat Phil Angelides, who was California State Treasurer at the time. Schwarzenegger was sworn in for his second term on 5 January, 2007. In 2011, Schwarzenegger completed his second term as governor.
