Nick Cannon Thinks White Women Are Seen As A Symbol Of Success

Mariah Carey's ex-husband has struck again.

Nick Cannon has his thoughts and he isn't concerned with how anyone feels about it.

During a 17-minute interview with guest Rizza Islam for his podcast, NCredible Conversations, the Masked Singer host questioned why Minister Louis Farrakhan shuns the idea of interracial relationships.

"Let's get to it. No more beating around the bush. Why I can't be with a white woman?" Cannon questioned. "I don't eat pork, but Goddamn the white women!"

Islam laughed with Cannon after the quip but quickly explained why his beliefs as a member of the Nation of Islam and why interracial relationships are frowned upon.

"The reason why the white woman, brother—and we can go into the anatomy, the biology and we can go into the history and the culture—is not ideal for the black man is because if you want to have the best of a black man, you have to have a black man and a black woman. "

Cannon interjected and noted from a historical standpoint, black men were killed for dating or even looking at a white woman, so now that interracial relationships are legal, some black men may want to pursue relationships with white women.

"White women are looked at as success," Cannon explained. "In America, we see a white woman — 'I couldn't have you. My daddy couldn't have you. My granddaddy couldn't have you. I would get killed even looking at you.' So, now, if I play for the NBA, I want 'em all."

Islam, however, said the desire a black man may have for a white woman says more about the black man than it does a white woman.

"So you're telling me, the black woman who has been there for us the whole damn time, who was there for us when we were getting lynched, who was there for us when we were getting whipped, every day, who was there for us to heal our wounds, to give us consolation of mind, to give us peace and quiet of mind, to help us to get through another day, you telling me she doesn't deserve at least..if you can give up on a black woman so easily, you don't deserve no other woman because you have demonstrated you can't give enough love to who needs it most."

Naturi Naughton On 'Power' Season 6: 'Everybody's Not Going To Live'

Power fans expressed great sadness when the Starz network announced the forthcoming sixth season would be the show's last. With an August 2019 air date, fans can only wait and see who will make it out alive of the treacherous big rich town.

In support of the last hurrah, Naturi Naughton and Joseph Sikora stopped by The Breakfast Club Wednesday (May 15) to talk about the magnitude of the show despite its humble beginnings.

"When we first started, we were eight episodes. We still shoot in Brooklyn and people were like 'Power? Never heard of it. Starz? What network is that?'...Starz has now become a leading cable premium network and we have over 10 million views across all platforms."

Naughton, 35, also said while traveling to Africa she was greeted with fanfare from those who watch the show overseas. "Oh, Mrs. Ghost. Tasha! Tasha! We love you' I have never felt so much love in my experience there,' " Naughton recalled.

When asked which of the actors takes a while to remove themselves from their role, both agreed Omari Hardwick needs a minute to divorce himself from Ghost/James St. Patrick.

"Omari, admittedly, and I think he's talked a lot about that in interviews. Unlike Naturi and I, we're not as method as he is. I do a lot of the homework for Tommy at home and bring that to the set, whereas Omari needs to kind of stay in the realm of the character Ghost," Sikora said.

Man Who Launched Border Wall Go Fund Me Remains Silent About $22 Million Raised

The man who launched a Go Fund Me to assist Donald Trump with his plans for a border wall updated supporters over the weekend on the $22 million donated and said, he's keeping things under wraps for now.

"WALL UPDATE: there’s no update because we are remaining silent for a very good reason. You all will have the best present very soon," Air Force veteran Brian Kolfage wrote on Facebook.

"When I guaranteed we’d build the wall I meant it, and we are working with many congressmen and senators to help us mitigate these issues from the left wing attack groups! We are in the homestretch and it’s on a need to know basis. We have been talking with Fox News and prime time shows to break the news for you, you’re going to see it very soon! And it’s going to be GLORIOUS!"

The Go Fund Me was launched in December during a time of great contention between Trump and Democratic-run Congress. Kolfage said he's working with a Florida non-profit to We Build the Wall, Inc. While the $22 million raised is considered a lot, it's crumbs compared to the billions needed to actually construct the wall.

In January, Kolfage reportedly pledged to repay "every single penny" of the money donated if it fell short of the $1 billion goal. In January, Kolfage told the New York Times construction on the wall would begin in a few weeks. Then while speaking with American Family Radio in March, he said the project would break ground in April. However, The Daily Beast concluded there's no evidence of "that any construction has started.”
