Rapper and activist David Banner went on The Breakfast Club for a revealing interview. He talked experiencing depression and new music he’s releasing. However, one of the show-stopping moments was when Banner insisted Black people should be racist.

In a discussion around different races keeping money within their own communities, Banner said, “I don’t see a problem in racism anymore.” He continued, “White people are supposed to take care of White people first. They supposed to give themselves the Grammys first, the movies first, ’cause don’t lions take care of lions? Tigers take care of tigers? It’s not White people’s racism that’s the problem, it’s Black people’s lack of racism. We’re supposed to be racist too and we’re not.” You can watch his comments below.
