    Do you think his wife would still be with him if he wasn’t successful. HELL NO. She would not give his short but a second look.

    I’m constantly amazed how these black men meet these goal diggers and marry them. BUT WON’T TOUCH A BLACK WOMAN.

    Singers, Sports Celebs, Corp Black men, won’t love or cherish black women, but can’t wait to get a white woman on there arm. Sad Sad Sad

    Can’t stand him.

    this corny clown does not have to think black women are beautiful most of us think hes gay anyway

    Why does the colour of his wife’s skin matter to you? Why do people automatically call someone a ‘sell-out’ for marrying outside of their race, like come on, this is 2015, for fvcksake. Did it occur to you that maybe he loves her? Women complain about men being scrubs; not making their own money, being unfaithful, not having a successful career, etc…. And then when we come across a great guy who has talent and success, the only thing people can say is ‘why didn’t he marry a black woman?’, when most of you bum b*tches can’t even trap a dude.

    When is this f** jumping out of that closet?

  9. Stacy July 31, 2015

    This punk like most closet black men, marry white women because white women have NO clue there men are gay.

    Soft ass black men love white women, they can be in touch with there soft side and white women don’t question it.

    A black woman will call a man out quick if he starting to act soft or fruit.

    In the days since Univision s Jorge Ramos confronted Donald Trump at a press conference in Iowa and was subsequently thrown out of the room by security, commentators on the right have been labeling him an advocacy journalist who was simply pushing his pro-immigration agenda. The Wrap News Inc.
