Rich the Kid Doesn't Think Shia LaBeouf is Racist

EXCLUSIVE

Shia LaBeouf isn't racist -- even though he said VERY racist things to cops -- we should just pass it off as a guy who's super high ... according to Rich the Kid.

We got the New York rapper Wednesday in Bev Hills, and he was clearly shocked by the words Shia chose when he verbally attacked Savannah cops.

Rich does not seem incensed at all -- not even a little -- and chops it up to drugs.

Conclusion ... not racist ... just a bad night.
