Cardi B Interviews Joe Biden about Racism and Free Education

Cardi B can add journalist to her long list of talents.

The rapper, 27, recently spoke with the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for Elle magazine‘s September 2020 issue. Their wide-ranging conversation covered topics such as healthcare, racism in America, free education, and tax breaks.

The “WAP” singer first tackled her dislike and distrust of President Donald Trump. She called him “confusing” and explained how she constantly feels lied to by the government.

“Tell me the truth, the hard-core truth,” she said regarding the status of the coronavirus pandemic in America.

Biden, 77, noted the importance of voting, especially getting young people to do so, so Trump becomes a one-term president.

“In 2016, if 18- to 24-year-olds had voted in the same percentage as the rest of the population, there would have been 5.2 million more votes,” Biden contended. “We wouldn’t have [Trump]; we would have had Hillary Clinton. The vote matters. That’s why you keep talking to people about the need to vote. Your generation can own what happens in the next election. They can change things dramatically if they show up and vote.”

The Bronx native said her fans are most interested in “free college and Medicare.” She asked Biden, “When you see the taxes coming off your check, you don’t understand, because you feel like you’re putting in so many hours. People want to know, can you provide college education, this [health care] plan, without a big chunk of taxes coming out of our checks?”

“Yes, we can,” Biden responded. “And the way we can pay for all of this is doing practical things, like making sure that everybody has to pay their fair share. [For example] no corporation should pay less than 15 percent tax.

“If I get elected president, anybody with a family [that makes] less than 125 grand, you’re going to get free education,” he said. “And everybody gets free community college.”

Cardi also spoke about her fears as a Black woman in America and how she’s already thinking about the safety of her 2-year-old daughter.

“Prejudice is dangerous. It could be the start of a civil war. It makes people feel uncomfortable around different people,” she said. “Nobody wants to feel targeted. Nobody wants animosity. Everybody just wants the best for themselves, their future, their kids’ future.”

The Grammy-winner emphasized how Black people are just “asking for equality,” fairness, and justice. “That is all,” she said. “I feel like everything people are asking for is getting interpreted in a very different way. No, it’s simple: We just want justice. We want to feel like Americans.”

Biden said he’s sure the change in the world will come from her generation.

“You’re the smartest, the best educated, the least prejudiced, and the most engaged generation in history. And you’re going to change things,” he said.

The former vice president then turned his comments to Trump.

“He’s promoting hatred, prejudice, racism. Talking about protecting the Confederate flag when Mississippi takes it off their flag. This is all about the game of making people hate each other. Because that’s how he wins, by dividing us,” he said.

Cardi then questioned if he’ll be able to deliver on these campaign agendas to which Biden promised, “Absolutely, positively.”

  1. Well that was an AWKWARD NOTHING BURGER!

  2. Unfortunately ,?m Mr. Biden blames P

    Unfortunately, Mr. Biden blames President Trump for dividing the country. If one is willing to look at the facts, one will learn that the hatred is being driven by him and the Democratic Party. He is misleading and using the young people to usher in policies that will not bring peace and satisfaction and true justice to them.

  3. HA HA HA HA HA Uncle Tom Pedophile Biden was buddies with the Grand Wizard of the KKK but I digress to the idiocy of these “rappers”. More like former stripper/hooker.

  4. Joe – you idiot! Read the lyrics of the song. If you still think she’s wonderful, you really are very bad for America!!

  5. You gotta be able to discern evil when it is used to hiding in plain sight. Many people are being led quietly to the slaughter… very very disconcerting

  6. Too bad some folks do not remember the way it used to be. Trump wants to drag us back to the pre-civil rights era. If you call yourself a progressive person that wants and needs to move forward, Vote BidenHarris2020.

    Don’t be that friend, co-worker, neighbor, brother, sister that sees the disgusting lies and injustices of Donald Trump, and still votes for him. Don’t just think of yourself! Think of your family and your community.

    Trump has had three plus years and all he has produced is hate, bullying, negativity, blatant lies, irresponsibility, cronyism, those things are not what being President is about. That is not what’s going to make America Great Again. Is that the America that you want your children to inherit? Is that the America you want to live in? Is that the America you’re dreaming of retiring in?

    That is not the America that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will bring us. Biden and Harris will bring back the America that you will be proud of, an America where your children will be able to grow and thrive to become what ever they dream of becoming. An America without the hate, bullying, negativity, blatant lies and cronyism.

    Vote BidenHarris2020!

      Rosa, it is a real shame, that you have been drinking the Kool aid of the Democrats, and don’t know the REAL truth ! Trump has his bad points, like everyone else, but he is NOT a Racist, and he is NOT a LIAR ! Biden on the other hand IS a liar, and I don’t know if you are a person of color or not, but Biden will do NOTHING for people of color, the same as the Democrats have ALWAYS done NOTHING for people of color ! The America that I want MY children, and Grandchildren to grow up in is NOT the Socialist America, that Joe Biden and the Democrats will guarantee !

    She has a song out right now which is disgustingly, offensive ! THIS is who Joe Biden decides to talk to ? A slutty rapper, with a mouth like a sewer !

  8. It’s amazing that Biden got through the interview. Who edited his words? The problem is that the entire premise they discussed about Trump are lies for the most part. Talk about divisive? The so called Democratic leaders promote BlLM and Antifa violence. Besides they are all true fascists.
