Bow Wow’s Twitter account is a never-ending stream of thoughts that need to be filtered. This time, in a series of tweets, the rapper claimed that he won’t be voting and it all, somehow, has to do with his ancestry.

It all began when Bow Wow tweeted that he didn’t support either presidential nominee and that world leaders are controlled “by an upper power that no one knows about.” When pressed by fans urging him to vote, not only for a better country but on behalf of his ancestors who couldn’t, Bow Wow said, “Man i only believe what the eyes see. Im mixed. I dont know what my ancestors was doing. I only know what i see!” Ummm, okay. Bow Wow then added, “Yeah i seen SELMA. Was i related to anyone no. Im saying my moss side of family is NOT BLACK. Heritage different.” So according to Bow Wow’s logic, since he’s not completely black he’s not obligated to vote. Uh, okay.

Bow Wow continued to explain his family history to fans and later posted a photo of his father on Instagram to prove that he is mixed and, obviously, Twitter went in.
