I'm 27 with an open-mind for opinions and strangers. I love everything about words, you can find me curled up with a good book any day and believe it or not I can read and listen at the same time..its called TALENT!

"I didn't touch her. I don't even like black girls. I know what this is about, she is just upset I have a white girlfriend. I couldn't tell you the last time I dated a black girl. She was trying to get with me, "

The above quote is Albert Haynesworth's( Washington Redskins player) plea as to why he is not guilty of groping a black waitress who is suing him for sexual abuse.

One of the topics I pleaded with myself to never write about is the reason black men find it necessary to get "on" and claim to not date or want to get involved with black women. This topic is very tiresome but it's necessary for me to tackle it.

We find this mostly with athletes, Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco are two of the many that have this stance. Ochocinco has even gone so far as to claim he is part Mexican, that is unbelievable on all levels. For me, a black man that dates or marries a woman of another race is not the problem, the problem lies in the disparaging reasons why they do not date black women. Often I hear that we have attitudes or we don't respect our men, this may be true for some but why generalize it and place it on an entire race of women. It's highly unnecessary to slander black woman, if you have a preference then so be it. 

From what I have observed it never serves these men well in the end by doing this. T.O publicly showed up his downtrodden relationship with his white girlfriend on his Vh1 show and Ochocinco seems to bitch more than play football.

All I ask is that the black women be shown more respect from our men and please if you have something negative to say about the reason we are not worthy, choke on it.
