Rapper Gets Political Over Police Brutality

Cardi B took to Instagram to slam President Trump over his indifference to police brutality. In the video, Cardi B said “at least Obama cared” when people of color were killed by the police.

“Every time I see a black man killed or mistreated by police I just keep saying ‘Does nobody care?’ And I’ve stopped saying that because nobody do care. Nobody cares. He don’t care,” Cardi B said. “At least when Obama was president he released a statement letting us know he feels like it’s wrong — letting us know that he cared. This guy – I know he seen it and he don’t give one s—t.”

Cardi B predicted that police would feel emboldened to use excessive force as long as Trump is president.

“I feel like police brutality is going to keep going until he’s [no longer] president. Until he’s [no longer] president, nothing is going to be done about police brutality,” she said.

Despite Cardi B’s criticisms, President Trump has made criminal justice reform a priority for his administration. He signed the First Step Act, a law that gives convicted felons easier access to jobs and other opportunities after they leave prison. However, Cardi said Trump should do more to address police brutality, and compared cops who use excessive force to misbehaving children.

“You know when a kid is bad and they get away with something then they gonna keep on doing it,” she said. “That’s what the cops are going to be doing: ‘Oh, I can get away with killing a black man? Then we’re going to keep doing it.'”
