Nick Cannon reasserted his stand on Planned Parenthood after accusing the reproductive health services organisation of being responsible for "real genocide" against black Americans. The Wild N Out host compared the system to "modern day eugenics" on Friday (25 November) when he was asked about his earlier remarks during the radio show The breakfast Club.
Cannon seemed to be in no mood to back off from his comments against Planned Parenthood and reinforcing his opinion the rapper said "It's population control". Last week the 36-year-old also discussed US politics and spoke of his aversion towards Hillary Clinton.
Cannon had told the radio show's hosts, "Think about all the stuff they did with Planned Parenthood and all that type of stuff. That type of stuff is to take our community — and forget gentrification, it's real genocide, and it's been like that for years."
The America's Got Talent host continued, "This system is not built for us. This is not our land. I appreciate it. I love it, wouldn't want to live nowhere else. But this wasn't designed for our people."
As he shared his political views on the show, Cannon confirmed that he was expecting his third child with girlfriend Brittany Bell. He was previously married to songstress Mariah Carey and the couple share five-year-old twins Monroe and Moroccan from their marriage.
This is not the first time that the father-of-two has publicly spoken on some issues. Earlier he took a strong stand on abortion with his 2005 single Can I Live. The music video revolved around the story of his life as he revealed that his mother had considered terminating her pregnancy with him.
Although the music made quite a revelation about Cannon, the rapper averted from making any political statement with his music. "I'm just thanking my mom for being strong," he said and added, "I'm just happy to be here."
