Bow Wow Tells Fans On Twitter He’s Mixed and Cannot Relate to Civil Rights Issues
It appears that Bow Wow will be going the Nick Cannon route and staying home instead of voting on November 8. But unlike the 35-year-old “America’s Got Talent” host, Bow Wow is no Black Lives Matter celeb. Him, not voting has nothing to do with his political strategy as a Black man, because according to Bow Wow, he identifies as mixed.
A Twitter exchange started out with the former kid rapper revealing his reasoning for staying away from politics, “people want me to fight the power I’m just not with all that.” Bow Wow defended why he didn’t feel a connection with the Civil Rights struggle on the right to vote. “Man I only believe what the eyes see. I’m mixed. I don’t know what my ancestors was doing. I only know what I see!” Bow Wow exchanged words with many fans who said they see him as Black, and the rapper made sure to respond to a fan who asked if he ever learned about African American history through television or movies. “Yea i seen SELMA. Am I related to anyone? no. I’m saying my moss side of family is NOT BLACK. Heritage different,” he responded.
Bow Wow continued his Twitter rant by going on to say he simply can’t relate to the black power movement since his family is White and Native American. “Because my ancestors were in tribes. My moss side of the family is white and native. Sh*t I can’t help thats my family.”
