Celebrity News And Gossip: Cardi B Addresses People Who Say She Isn’t Black Because She Speaks Spanish

Since Cardi B rose to the top of the rap game, her ethnicity has always been debated. Some argue the “I Like It” rapper isn’t Black but Hispanic while others insist she is Afro-Latina. There are those who also say she’s all of the above. On Tuesday (June 26), Cardi set the record straight about her ethnicity during a chat session on Instagram Live. The BET Awards-winning artist recounted a story about a person mistaking her for being Mexican. However, she was quick to correct the person.

“I’m not Mexican at all. I’m West Indian and I’m Dominican. I speak Spanish because I’m Dominican,” Cardi explains. “And it’s like, so what’s the difference between Dominican and Mexican?’ And it’s like, everything!”

She goes on to explain that just because she is a light-skinned Latina doesn’t mean she’s not Black.

“People just don’t be understanding shit,” Cardi says. “It’s like, ‘Cardi’s Latin, she’s not Black.’ And it’s like, ‘Bro, my features don’t come from…white people fucking, OK?’ And they always wanna race-bait when it comes to me…I have Afro features. ‘Oh, but your parents are light-skinned…all right, but my grandparents aren’t.”
