Over the weekend, pop culture icon and rapper Cardi B egged on a feud with conservative commentator Candace Owens in an epic battle for black culture. Following in the line of liberals who think blacks who support Trump “ain’t black” (as Joe Biden would say), Cardi B, who is arguably one of the most influential figures in music at the moment, is coming after not only President Trump but also his black supporters.
On Sunday night, Cardi B slammed a photo showing many of the most famous black Trump supporters praying over the president. She posted to Twitter, “This what PANDERING looks like. I will never praise no politician not even Obama, FDR, or Bernie ONLY THE LORD! This is how Trump panders with black people while Candice concerns how Joe panders with me”

President Trump using this photo doesn’t equate to “pandering.” Pandering would be Hillary Clinton going on a radio show to tell the black community she carries hot sauce in her purse (a reference to a contemporary Beyonce song) to make herself seem relatable. This photo of Trump with prominent black conservatives simply reflects the reality that they support him, and they chose to pray over him.
Nevertheless, Cardi B’s tweet was in response to Candace Owens, who said Joe Biden was pandering to the black community by leaving his basement to allow Cardi B to interview him before he gave an interview to any major media outlet.
Owens tweeted a video in which she discussed her thoughts on the interview as well as Cardi’s latest hit song “WAP,” which she captioned, “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.”

For those of you who don’t know, Cardi B is a former stripper turned rapper who makes some of the most vulgar and sexually explicit music available today. She is also known for bragging about drugging and robbing men in the name of female empowerment during her stripping days.
Yet, this is the person criticizing black Trump supporters for praying over a sitting president. Honestly, it’s questionable whether she even realizes that they are praying for him, not to him, but that’s beside the point.
At face value, Cardi B is obviously not someone that anyone should ever look up to, but Hollywood can turn anyone they want into a “star” or “role model” as long as they push the right narrative. Unfortunately, she is beloved by America’s youth because of how much the industry has propped her up.
If you think that’s a stretch, consider how, despite the fact that she has little to no ability to speak coherently, last year Cardi B was a guest host on Jimmy Fallon, she endorsed and interviewed Bernie Sanders, and now she’s interviewing Joe Biden. There is no possible way she is getting these high-profile interviews all on her own – or even because she wants to.
Meanwhile, Candace Owens commonly discusses that one of her goals is to fight the degenerate behavior so heavily promoted in hip hop culture to keep the black community down. She criticizes the music industry particularly for glorifying drugs, violence, sexual promiscuity, and money to the black youth—all ideals that ultimately are anti-God, break down the family, and are antithetical to success.
Cardi B embodies every one of those warped values in her immoral music.
Owens often says that conservatives need to be more active in combatting this culture promoted by the Hollywood Leftist elites who encourage this immorality to control the minority vote. She believes that we can’t win this culture war if we don’t get involved in it—which is exactly what she is doing by engaging in the feud with Cardi B.
While it may seem petty, this Twitter clash between Candace Owens and Cardi B is really a power struggle for the black community. Here we have the most influential black female rapper and the most influential black female conservative battling it out to see who will come out on top. If Owens wins, it could signal the beginning of a turning point in the future of the black community’s culture.
Even as of this writing, the social media conflict continues, and it’s likely to get even more interesting from here.
