Uh-oh. A football player in a major college program has openly declared that he only wants to “date” (euphemism) white chicks. NBC – NO Black Chicks.
So, where is the NAACP? Where is the National Association of “No You Di’n’t”? Where are all the Black women? Where’s Oprah?
Well, they’re nowhere to be found. And here’s why: The player who uttered it is Black. If he were White–like John Rocker–he’d be in big trouble. But he isn’t. Instead, he’s Chris Rainey, Running Back for the University of Florida Gators. And he’s said something most of us already know from O.J. Simpson, Charles Barkley, and assorted other big-name professional Black athletes: They’re racist against Black women (Mike Tyson is a noted exception among some others). Or they think White women are a) easy, b) a status symbol, or c) all of the above.
Here’s what Rainey had to say about his No-Blacks-Allowed “dating” harem, er . . . pool:
Every time you see a fine girl (in Gainesville), you see another fine girl better than her. (Some people) like different color girls and stuff like that. I’m a white girl man.
So, will the group that defended Michael Vick–the NAACP–denounce Rainey’s comments? Or will they say, the White Man made him do it?
I’m sure, it’s the latter. We’ll be told that society has lifted a blonde, white chick as its ideal trophy woman. And therefore, the society that enslaved the Black man is now teaching him to reject the Black woman in favor of the “White ho.”
Thanks to my friends, Drew & Mike and their producers Marc & Mike, for the tip.
