Opinions on interracial relationships surface
On Nick Cannon’s Youtube show “Cannon Class” he speaks out on his opinion of why men overlook black women for white women. His guest Rizza Islam is a man of the nation of Islam in which white people can’t join. Rizza answers back to Cannon’s first question of the interview “Why can’t I be with a white woman?” in his own way. Rizza states “….of course, the honorable Minister Farrakhan teaches us that love is from and of God” but “the reason why the white woman, and we can go into anatomy, biology, history culture, is not ideal for the black man is because if you want to have the best of another black man you have to have a black man and a black woman to have a child.” They discuss the fact that love between blacks and whites was forbidden throughout history which is when Cannon made his statement, “White women are looked at as success because 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 for even looking at you. People, if they thought I whistled at you, they would murder me. Beat me. Drag me down the street. So now, if I play for the NBA, I want them all and I can afford them all, that’s what they are thinking.” The conversation went on and explains that this mentality is still apart of the slave mentality people of color possess. What do you all think?
