Roland Martin has had just about enough of the reckless comments and sheer ignorance displayed by celebrities about race, politics and the upcoming election. Bow Wow and Nick Cannon are two of the latest misinformed celebrities the NewsOne Now anchor had to put on blast.
Earlier this week, Bow Wow published some rather foolish tweets about how his mixed race ancestry makes him unable to identify with the civil rights conversation; statements that Martin calls some of the “dumbest ish I’ve ever seen in my life.”

Cannon told Germany’s Deutsche Welle News, at a Black Lives Matter rally July 20th that he had no intention of voting based on the lack of respect shown for Black people from both parties.
Though Nick wasn’t as eager to have a conversation with Martin as Bow Wow was, he did agree to write in a candidate rather than put a bid in for Hillary or Trump:
