*I might be about to get a little controversial up in here. Feel free not to read.
I listen to Kidd Kraddick In The Morning every day on my way to work, and then while I'm at work until it goes off at 10am. This morning they posed the question: Are black women upset with Kim Kardashian because she dates black men?
I don't even understand why this would be an issue, but yes, a black woman called in saying that she's upset that Kim Kardashian is reducing her pool of black men to date.
Ok, here's the deal: First of all, I'm not sure that any man that Kim dates is reducing the dating pool for anyone else - black, white, asian - unless you're a millionaire. Second, why is anyone concerned with the color of the skin on the person that anyone else chooses to date?
This is really my issue. I just don't see why skin color matters at all, for anything. I touched on this a while back when I gave my opinion on Hispanic Heritage and Black History months, but I'll say it again. Everyone says they want to be equal, yet they keep drawing lines. Why should I, or anyone else, care who someone else dates? People are people no matter what color their skin is. If you're white and you want to date black people, go ahead. If you're black and you want to date white people, go ahead.
Why does anyone care?
