Singer Mariah Carey Says Her 9-Yr-Old Son Moroccan Bu-llied By A ‘White Supremac-ist’ – VIDEO

Mariah Carey is opening up about her family’s enco*nters with rac*sm. During a Thursday appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the music icon discussed her recent memoir.

The Meaning of Mariah Carey, and shared that her 9-year-old son, Moroccan, was recently bu*lied by a white supremac!st.

“Rocky just got b*lied the other day by a white supremac!st person that he thought was his friend,” Carey, 50, told host Cohen. “It’s like, ins-ane. This is the world we live in.”

Though her memoir was completed prior to the current Bl-ack L!ves Ma-tter movement, Carey, who is birac!al, said the book ended up being “so timely.”

The “Hero” singer is even reading the chapters that touch on ra-ce to Moroccan and his twin sister, Monroe, whom Carey shares with ex Nick Cannon. “I’m reading chapters to them that are helping to illustrate my enc*nters with rac*sm, and how they can then have a greater understanding, and ultimately a greater reservo!r with which to deal with the situation itself,” Carey explained.

The superstar singer went on to detail a few of those enc*unters to Cohen, including an instance in which she was “tr*mat!zed” as a young girl by teachers who ins-isted she was using the wrong color crayon in a drawing of her father, who is Bla-ck. In another incident, Carey said a friend of hers “b*rst into te-ars” after meeting her father.

“It’s been a struggle for me since I was aware that there was such a thing as ra-ce,” she said. “And the only reason I was aware so early on was because it became a subject of hum!liat-ion for me as a child.” Further in the book, Carey also recalled another “tra*matc moment” with girls she thought were her friends, explaining that she read that chapter to her daughter to discuss the experience.

After, the 9-year-old had the sweetest response. “I let her hear that and it was really sweet, she goes, ‘Mommy, those girls, they feel so bad now. I bet they wish they could be your friend,'” Carey said. To help comb-at systemic rac*sm, consider learning from or donating to these organizations:
