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.”
