White men dating black women oprah
But as soon as he left the stage that day, he pretty much left my mind.But it seems I really should have been paying more attention to Mayer and his very telling thoughts.This made my heart ache and my blood pressure spike: Actress Tamera Mowry, who is black, wept in an interview with Oprah Winfrey over the vile bigotry she has encountered because of her marriage to Fox News reporter Adam Housley, who is white. I’ve grown so used to it that I often forget how hurtful it can be. It’s also a valuable teachable moment about how dehumanizing it can be to work in the public eye. Young actresses in the 21st century forced to defend their love lives because their marital choices are politically incorrect?Misogynist haters called Mowry a sellout and a “white man’s whore.” International news outlets labeled the Internet epithets she endured “horrific” and “shocking.” Horrific? We’re leaning backward in the regressive Age of Hope and Change. What Mowry experienced is just a small taste of what the intolerance mob dishes out against people “of color” who love, think and live the “wrong” way.Let’s face it: Mowry’s sin, in the view of her feckless detractors, is not merely that she married outside her race.[…] I cannot imagine a better place to live,” Turner reportedly told the Swiss tabloid Blick.Oprah, her wedding guest, had a different story to tell to Entertainment Tonight. According to Oprah, the sales person replied, “No, it’s too expensive!
If I had, I'd have known that somewhere along the line, Mayer imagined he'd received an invitation-only entry into the African-American inner circle.It’s also that she is so open about her love for a white man who — gasp! Neither of them is political, but the mere association with Bad Things (Fox, conservatives, capitalism, the Tea Party, Christian activism, traditional values) is an invitation for unabashed hate. “Oriental Auntie-Tom,” ‘‘yellow woman doing the white man’s job,” ‘‘white man’s puppet,” ‘‘Manila whore” and “Subic Bay bar girl” are just a few of the printable slurs I’ve amassed over the past quarter-century. It’s the best revenge and the most effective antidote to crab-in-the-bucket syndrome.
