I admit when I saw his wedding ring, I privately hoped.
But something in me just knew he didn't marry a sister.
A good example of this stereotype is Queen Latifiah’s character in Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever .
In Jungle Fever, the Queen plays a waitress who becomes visually upset when she is forced to serve the black man / white woman couple.
Although my guess hit the mark, when my friend told me his wife was indeed Caucasian, I felt my spirit My conclusion from what I listened to and read here is she's speaking from a painful, soul-sucking place of black women in the long history of America, and voicing that quiet twinge of "betrayal" that a lot of black women feel when they see a black man with a white women.
As much as I like and respect fellow blogger friends who find her statement racist, I must disagree forcefully.
“When our people were enslaved, ‘Massa’ placed his Caucasian woman on a pedestal,” Scott writes. I know for a fact that several of these women asked Aaron why he was with me instead of a white girl! Recently, I stumbled on an article that put some perspective on this troubling issue.
