Being that Serena recently made a point of saying that her white fiancé treated her “better than black men” after she also pointed out that “race was not an issue” in who she dates, should she, or we, be surprised when IIle Nastase made the following statement regarding Serena’s unborn child?
“”Let’s see what colour it has. Chocolate with milk?” Nastase said of the unborn baby,” per the Guardian‘s Lawrence Ostlere.
Previously, Serena made it a point to say the following regarding her relationship with her fiance’
“When I date someone I never see color,” Serena said, “I date who I have chemistry with, but I must say Alexis has treated me better than any Black man I have dated.”
It’s amazing to me how if color doesn’t matter, why would she even make such a statement? Be with who makes you happy, but why justify who you are marrying by degrading the men or women of your own race?
Serena dated rappers in the past. Although the rapper Common was considered a conscious rapper, he is still a rapper. We are all aware entertainers have quite the reputation when it comes to women despite their skin color. She has also been rumored to date rapper Drake as well as former NFL linebacker Lamar Arrington and basketball star Amare Stoudemire.
Serena completely contradicts herself and if she is truly blind to color she should evaluate her own statements specifically pointing out the race of men she has been With in the past in a derogatory way.
You can’t state in one breath you don’t see color, then in the next breathe make a socially racist comment against black men. Sure black men have hurt me in the past too, but I recognize my part in the demise of those relationships and I understand that black men don’t need anymore negative, generalized stereotypes of their character by mainstream moguls like Serena that further damage the deteriorating relationship between black men and black women.
Love who you love not because other men in your race hurt you, but just because you love them and nothing else. We should steer clear of comparing our non black boyfriends & girlfriends to our black partners by pointing out their race as some indication of how they treat women. We should compare past lovers only by their character. Of course, that is what truly color blind people do.
Serena continues with her contradictory rant in her response to IIle Nastase comment about her child with the following response (Note below that she states that she doesn’t respond to negativity and she only gives off positivity and light in every situation, yet she mentioned above that her fiance’ treats her better than any black men has treated her in the past).
