HipHop rapper, Cardi B took to her Twitter page to address the claims that she’s not black and has never accepted being black until it was time to benefit from black culture.
It all started with a Twitter user writing,
“Cardi never accepted being black. She embraces black cultures in the same way culture vultures do. She acts like a bw until its time to be a bw.”
Cardi replied to the Twitter user, saying,
“How do you act like a black woman ? How do black women act ?”
Another Twitter user, @goddesscardii came to the rapper’s defence, by sharing an old video where Cardi B was talking about her nappy hair and how black pages inspire her to love her hair despite her plans to “perm” it.

“You’ve always claimed to be black. Don’t listen to them ma.”
Cardi thanked her supporter and reacted to the video, saying: “And I don’t want to hear nobody saying this shit is new cause I was t even love & hip hop had my fucked up teeth ,still stripping and living in the Bronx here.”
But Twitter user @Naya_brazy reacted to the old video of cardi talking about her nappy hair by writing,
“What the fuck does your hair have to do with anything you dumb bitch.”
And Cardi slammed her back, saying: “It’s not about my hair you sausage neck bitch it’s who I identify myself as.”
