The Stinging Irony Of The Black Athlete Divorcing His Trophy White Wife....

Updated on January 14, 2017

The Stinging Irony Of The Black Male Athlete Divorcing His Trophy White Wife....

I must confess that I strive and hope to continue to live a life that were charges to be brought... that said charges would convict me of being a ‘Traditional Christian’ – I say this to juxtapose what I am about to discus, in this particular blog, about Black male athletes marrying white women. As a Traditional Christian, love has no barriers nor should it, but we know that we seldom see female, renowned white athletes of any stripes marrying Black men.

Those of us who watch race relations know that we should not make the mistake of equating President’s Obama ascent to the pinnacle of power to think that, mostly, White America, has changed its feelings when it comes to interracial relationships, especially those between the White women and Black men. Let us be honest, I dare surmise that Erin Woods would not have married Tiger Woods if he were not someone of note.

Can anyone honestly see Maria Sharapova, Danica Patrick, or any of the A-list White actresses of note being married to a Black man – don’t answer... the query was rhetorical. Now, as someone who has walked the halls of academia, I know that many such hook-ups, though on the ‘down-low,’ are rampant. But the truth is that there is still a Teflon taboo, especially among many of my White brothers and sisters, associated with such mixed unions, especially those between Black men and White women… even though said taboo feelings are more tacit than in the past. I have not done a scientific study nor do I know of any, but I am going to hazard a guess that when White wives like that of Tiger Wood… divorce these Black athletes, these trophy wives subsequent relationships are with White men.

The irony is that, although Tiger Woods' wife, apparently, had ample cause to divorce him, some White man, more than likely, will be raising his children and spending that huge divorce settlement loot… in the near future. To measure the barometer of race relations in this country, look to see if there are interracial relationships on the silver screen (movie) between the so called A-list actresses and Black men -- moreover, see if you will ever see a Black man 'doing' to any big time White actress what Billy-Bob-Thornton did to Halle Berry in the movie, “Monster’s Ball.” I am over two score, but I am certain that even were I to live to be a hundred, you will never see the White female athletes or any White women of note… dating or marrying Black men - at least in the naked open. In the mean time, you will see the opposite and if it is borne out of love... great!

You ever noticed that on the Bachelorette reality shows - that my beloved sisters love - you have to look hard to find the token Black guy, if any, being among the competitors, as a suitor for the young White lady? To further capture and expound on my premise… can anyone who will read this blog ever imagine seeing the likes of Taylor Swift… or any of the white pop princesses… having Black men as lovers in their videos - and mind you, this scenario, as they say, would only be acting (John Lovit)....

      All I can say is "Let the buyer beware." I have noticed that the love of gain often has no bounds. "Race" is often not enough to separate money from the pursuer. People who have money already do not usually make unnecessary sacrifices, but a "hungry" soul will eat at all costs.

      It is unfortunate that some people end up with the short stick because of a bad decision, but we can say that they got one heck of an “education”!
