NAACP Wants ‘Talk’ With Cardi B After Withdrawing Election Vote

The Grammy-nominated rapper covers the latest issue of Rolling Stone where she explains why she’s not casting her vote for President Biden or former President Donald Trump in the upcoming election.

“I don’t f— with both of y’all,” she said about the Democratic and Republican candidates.

According to Cardi, Trump is a “dire threat” to the country and Biden has caused her “layers and layers of disappointment” over his “domestic and foreign mismanagement.”

“I feel like people got betrayed,” she said of the Biden Administration’s handling of the ongoing inflation and low wages. “It’s just like, damn, y’all not caring about nobody.”

“Then, it really gets me upset that there is solutions to it. There is a solution. I know there’s a solution because you’re spending billions of dollars on any f—ing thing.”

.@iamcardib, let’s talk about it. Your voice matters, and our communities have to look beyond the presidential race.I invite you to speak with the @NAACP on how we can all use our collective power this November to elect everything from mayors to school board members. https://t.co/kO3CZfG7I2— Derrick Johnson (@DerrickNAACP) May 16, 2024

In response to Cardi’s public reveal of her political stance, NAACP President Derrick Johnson invited her to sit down and “talk about it” ahead of the election.

“Your voice matters, and our communities have to look beyond the presidential race,” he wrote. “I invite you to speak with the @NAACP on how we can all use our collective power this November to elect everything from mayors to school board members.”

“I’m endorsing no presidents no more,” Cardi B told The Guardian last November. “Joe Biden is talking about, ‘Yeah, we can fund two wars,’ … talking about, ‘Yeah, we got it, we’re the greatest nation.’ No … we’re not. We don’t got it, and we’re going through some sh*t right now. So say it!”

She added: “We are really, really, really fu*ked right now. No, we cannot fund these … wars.”
