Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell are Black Republicans; both are dope AF as they’ve reached prominence in their careers. Notably, they probably won’t be voting for Trump’s reelection because they — like the other small-handful of ‘smart’ Republicans who have actual moral values and see each Black life as more than 3/5th’s of a human being — realize that the current American President is mentally deranged and racist as hell.
But what in Klansville is going on with Candace Owens? The girl just can’t seem to stop hating on her own people. In fact, I’ve never heard her say one positive thing about Black Americans.
Hence, Owens don’ stuck her own foot in her mouth again, y’all.
Starting a feud with hip-hop mogul Cardi B, Owens couldn’t resist that white supremacist, self-hating urge to put Cardi’s name between her anti-Black flappin’ lips.
Owens began her dramatic crusade against Cardi, stepping out of pocket and posting a clip from her appearance on The Ben Shapiro Show where she refers to Cardi as “illiterate” and an “embarrassment” to Black America.
Since most black people didn’t have the spine to admit that @benshapiro was 100% correct about @iamcardib and how her music and platform contributes to the disintegration of black culture and values…here you go. #WAP #SundaySpecial pic.twitter.com/q5QxxX9G4e

Owens went on bumping her saditty gums, criticizing 2020, presidential candidate (vice president) Joe Biden’s interview with Cardi B, arguing from the position that Biden’s actions were pandering to Black sheeple. Owens went on to likened Biden’s effort to pandering Black Americans by using Cardi’s large platform to Trump inviting a conversation and endorsement from musical artist Justin Bieber — which never happened.
Not sure where the hell she gets a Justin Bieber comparison to Cardi, but Owens clearly pointed out that Justin is a ‘Christian.’
Which to me, equates to saying:
Justin Bieber + Christian = Good White Man
Hence, Owens pretty much said that people like Cardi are less than human and, therefore, undeserving of being civically heard.
Nonetheless, we all know Cardi B doesn’t take anybody’s sh*t.
The current reigning hip hop queen responded, “Why wouldn’t Joe Biden sit down with me? I have millions of followers and I pay millions in taxes … I’m heard all around the world. The same way I get people to pop their p***y and have a good time and make them feel like a bad bitch — I can also encourage millions of followers to go vote.”
Boom! I’m LMFAO, yall. 😂 I love how Cardi reads the f*ck out of Candace Owens in this bad and boujee clap back.
Cardi’s social media following and star power alone can actually determine a presidential election.
The Biden team’s reaching out to Camp Cardi is a smart *ss campaigning strategy on Biden’s part as Cardi has a whoppin’ 75.1 million Instagram followers.
Reputably, it also means that Biden is concerned about what voters like Cardi have to say and that he’s less concerned with racist stigma and sees Cardi and those who grew up in the hood as fully human, something the current President struggles to comprehend and do.
Black and Brown people have rights, too, got-dammit!
And Candace, be careful, honey. Cardi B doesn’t play nice; she’s from the Bronx, yo!
But we know Candace don’t-know-nothin’ about Cardi’s fierceness because she didn’t see Cardi sling a 9-inch heel at Asia, then attempt to whoop Asia’s a$$ on Love and Hip Hop. 👀
And, yes, Candace, we know we used a double negative in that last sentence, so if you’re reading this: chill girl and have a session or two with maryjane — she’s legal in a number of states.
Right they use her ass and they don’t even have the decency to put her in the Republican convention.She have a huge platform have Trump sat with her?gave her a interview? That’s the least he could do ? NO ? Ooo ok https://t.co/zZbCabnIXV

Earlier this year, Owens horrifyingly downplayed the modern-day lynching and murder of unarmed jogger Ahmaud Arbery. Over summer, she also unfairly criticized the death of George Floyd, saying, “I do not support George Floyd and the media’s depiction of him as a martyr for Black America.” Owens judged Floyd’s history and not the videography and circumstances of Floyd’s death and how it relates to the larger conversation about the disproportionate killings of Black people by law enforcement officers.
Candace, we’re going to need you to fall-back, honey, because it’s you that’s an embarrassment to Black America, not queen Cardi B.
Notably, Candace still hasn’t addressed Breonna Taylor’s death publicly.
Say her name, Candace.
