The interview happened two years ago, however, it aired two weeks ago. And since then, people’s hatred towards Nick has been increasing day by day.
Nick Cannon said, “Our melanin is so powerful and it connects us in a way that the reason why [white people] fear us is because of the lack that they have of it,” he continued. “When you have a person that has a lack of pigment, the lack of melanin, they know that they will be annihilated. So, therefore, however they got the power, they have the lack of compassion – melanin comes with compassion, melanin comes with a soul.”
He mentioned that the people who do not have melanin are “a little less.” He added, “They may not have the compassion when they were sent to the mountains of Caucasus when they did not have the power of the sun. The sun then started to deteriorate them so then, they’re acting out of fear, they’re acting out of low self-esteem, they’re acting out of a deficiency.”
