Black Women, don’t let John Mayer’s penis distract you.

I’m so sick of hearing about John Mayer!! I wasn’t going to blog about it but its Saturday and people are still talking about it. I heard one woman ask on a radio show “how did John Mayer get so popular?” Lady, where have you been? Now Holly Robinson Peete has made a comment about it… Black Women, I beg you!! Leave This Alone!! This is a weapon of mass distraction!!! Let’s look at what he said in the Playboy Interview -

On Being Cool With Black Folks - Someone asked me the other day, "What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?" And by the way, it's sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a nigger pass. Why are you pulling a punch and calling it a hood pass if you really have a hood pass? But I said, "I can’t really have a hood pass. I've never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, 'We're full.'"

On Romance And Love - I don't think I open myself to it. My dick is sort of like a white supremacist. I've got a Benetton heart and a fuckin' David Duke cock. I'm going to start dating separately from my dick.

So what does this really mean? The man said he likes everybody but he only sleeps with white women. Okay? He is a white man! Are black women really upset because a white man only dates white women? Now I understand being upset over his use of the “N” word. But we shouldn’t be surprised. Barack Obama’s presidency has brought out peoples true feelings. Add to the fact that his black friends probably let him use the word. Yep! There are black folks letting white folks use the “N” word. It seems that our pride and respect crawled into the casket with the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

I understand about holding people accountable but we have bigger fish to fry at this point. Censure Mayer – Ask for a verbal or written apology – wait for him to come out of his concert and beat him with a cane.

We need to get back to this 15% - 17% Unemployment for Black Men. The 3rd wave of Subprime Loans that are about to hit. The Banks that refuse to give loans to small family businesses. The missing Green Jobs that were promised and could help residents in poor neighborhoods.

Let’s not waste anymore energy on an interview in a skin magazine. Focus People!!!

I don't see what the big deal is, I don't mind telling anyone that I've only slept with black women.

What's the problem?!?

And by the way, my dick might look at other women; but it usually doesn't start twitching until there's a black woman in the room.

My dick definitely isn't racist though.

I think many woman are upset because this is an unprovoked attack. And this by itself wouldn't be a major thing but this along with all of the other attacks, hip hop, etc. is a trend.

So, I really don't think that Black women care all that much about Mayar per say but media attacks against Black women are all to common.

I have no problem with letting this drop like yesterday's worn undies. He is not worth all of the effort and energy that is being focused on his statements.

I stopped caring the same day the ish broke. I couldn't give two shits.

Citizen Ojo said...

Reggie - ha! ha! yeah you aren't Racist.. ha!

Val - I think we need to go after these Rappers with the same passion they are going in on Mayer with. Black Women need to know who really doesn't have their best intrest at heart.

MsLadyDeborah - Yeah we don't wear old undies...

RainaHavock - Tell it sista!! ha! ha!

I completely agree. There have been so many times where people have thought they were so down with a group of people they felt as if they were one of them. When will people learn that just because you are well liked by a group, that doesn;t give you rights to the group. I hate the "N" word in every form in which it's used. Mayer should have known better and that should be the end of it. The issue about black women, I'm like whatever. Date who you want, I don't date anyone other black men, but that dosn't make me a racist. People need to stop getting their panties in bunch of crap like this and direct their thoughts and words towards more important issues, just like you said.

Redbonegirl97 - Thanks for stopping by. This statement took up way too much time and what have we learned from it. Nothing!! Life goes on...

LOL @ Reggie with the twitching comment.

I was disappointed at first becuase John Mayer is one of my favorite artists. He has apologized and that's good enough for me. If he does it again, then there is a problem. I agree with Citizen Ojo -- his black friends probably let him use the "N" word.
