Shad Moss says he can't relate to the struggle for black people to vote because he's mixed

Shad Moss, known to most as Bow Wow, had an interesting and confusing conversation recently on our timelines. It started out about politics and his choice not to vote. Then, it strayed into a discussion about a specific chain of luxury hotels, and somehow ended up somewhere in the vicinity of a visit to Ancestry.com
The question was simple enough to start.
What did Shad learn about politics? What is this secret knowledge that he possesses? Whatever it is, we need to find it. His confidence is unbridled. Mr. Moss is absolutely sure that staying away is the best option
Then things got strange.
Another fan implores Shad to think about the people who looked just like him that were denied the right he refuses to use. And his answer is interesting. Mr. Moss clearly lives his life by the laws of empiricism. If he cannot see it, he does not believe it. Therefore, history books and other such text mean nothing to him. He can neither confirm nor deny that his ancestors died for his right to vote
Then comes this rebuttal & Shad's corresponding answer.
Even the masterpiece Selma, directed by the queen Ava DuVernay, based on real life events is not enough. Shad will not be swayed. In response, he makes sure to let us know that he is not related to anyone from Selma. He says that one side of his family is not black. His heritage is different
Then he proceeds to explain just how different.
Shad Moss's position is clear. His cousins look like Justin Bieber. His grandmother looks like Betty White. His dad looks like a drunk Cuban with no rhythm. None of these things could add up in any way to him being a black man. It makes perfect sense, doesn't it?
