Cardi B worries her daughter will be "targeted" for her skin colour.
The 'Bodak Yellow' hitmaker - who has Kulture Kiari, two, with her husband Offset - admits she fears her family being "targeted" and being subjected to "animosity" because of the colour of their skin.
She shared: "And you know, this prejudice is dangerous. It could be the start of a civil war. It makes people feel uncomfortable around different people. Nobody wants to feel targeted. Nobody wants animosity. Everybody just wants the best for themselves, their future, their kids' future. I don't want to have to tell my kid, 'You have to be careful going to the store. Don't wear a hoodie. Please don't get stopped.' We don't want that. And I don't want to feel a certain type of animosity for a different race, because I feel like they get it easier than us. Nobody wants to feel like that. Why can't we just work with each other?"
And the 27-year-old rapper wants "justice" for Black people.
She said: "And you know, I feel like Black people, we're not asking for sympathy, we're not asking for charity - we are just asking for equality. We are asking for fairness, and we are asking for justice. That is all. 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."
And Cardi is so "tired" of racism.
Speaking to the September issue of Elle magazine, she added: "Racism has always existed. But I feel like right now, there's just a lot of tension. And we need somebody to clean that up. I'm just so tired of it."
