Famous black men dating white women

22 May

Since falling in love with the woman who would become my wife, there has been an inexplicable beauty in the world.Unfortunately, I have also been reminded that the beauty is visible because of all that is ugly.1. The safe thing to assume is these were never your friends, but that doesn't change that it hurts. I still uphold principles that the community holds dear.But, either way, it's safe to say they don't discriminate when it comes to love.Here's a list of some of them--and yes, it includes some of the hottest couples in Hollywood.These are probably the same black men secretly living under the Kanye West motto of “And when you get on, he’ll leave your ass for a white girl.” Somehow, these men felt as if Serena Williams, the embodiment of the black woman, had not done her due diligence in giving enough black men a chance to be her Prince Charming.When a celebrity gets engaged, it’s likely to be met with commentary from the peanut gallery from all sides.One of the most well-known, yet surprising interracial unions belongs to famed Bahamian actor and trail blazer, Sidney Poitier.

For a certain group of famous white men, there's nothing that matches the grace and beauty of a beautiful black woman.

For some, it's become a pattern, while others have just had a couple of high profile black women at their side on occasion.

While interracial relationships are not nearly as uncommon as they once were, we’d be lying if we said that the dating and marriage histories of some of the nation’s most outspoken black social activists didn’t come as a surprise to us.

Let’s take a gander at socially and politically active black men who dated outside of their race.
