cupid it dating - Jill scott on interracial dating
Cocoa Fab’s Cherise Nicole sat down with the stars of David Talbert’s new movie Baggage Claim, Jill Scott and Adam Brody.
In a hilarious interview, they opened up about their roles in the movie, interractial relationships, helping to hook up friends in real life and Jill responds to John Mayer‘s comments that he doesn’t find Black women attractive sexually.
I think I could listen to Jill Scott talk all day long.
When we caught up with the singer on the press junket for the upcoming movie “Baggage Claim,” we knew exactly what we wanted to ask her about: that 2010 essay on interracial dating in Essence magazine and her advice for single mothers raising black men, in light of both her admission to suffering from postpartum depression after having her son and the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
Miss Scott was kind enough to speak freely on both topics and this is what she had to say.“Be his mother, be his friend, but don’t be his girlfriend.
That’s a big one.“He’ll have to understand the repercussions of his actions. To make sure that he understands and feels the full brunt of what will happen if he doesn’t abide by the rules of this here house. I’m not going to lock you in a cage, but society will. If you love that person, please love them hard and good.
So I need you to understand the pros and cons of being a rebel. If you have to bite your tongue in half, do that before you start talking crap about his dad. So it was pretty unfortunate what I ended up being on this platform where I don’t like interracial relationships. But if you are there because you think that having this woman validates who you are as a person, then you’re misguided and misled.”No argument here.
He’ll look at that as a reflection of himself and exactly who you don’t want him to be is who he’ll be because he thinks it’s in his DNA, but it’s bigger than DNA and that’s big.”“I wasn’t talking about interracial dating and that’s where everybody seemed to get it twisted. In the video below, Jill Scott also admitted to dating a white man before and also laid out what her idea of perfect man is, including someone who is “hungry for her love making often.”Go head Miss Scott!
The article was intended to be called ‘I’m just saying.’ What it ended up being was Jill Scott discusses interracial relationships. I’m a writer and the first thing I know is in order to discuss something I have to do research and that’s not what that article was about.“It was a response, the internal response, to a happy, healthy, wealthy, black man having a white wife or a white girlfriend. magazine, the singer-actress penned a commentary in which she described feeling her "spirit wince" upon discovering that a black male acquaintance of hers had a white wife.But when Scott, along with the rapper Common, recently made the guest list for a White House poetry reading, conservatives such as Matt Drudge balked at the choice because of Scott's previous remarks on interracial marriage.Today, the ladies of ABC's "The View" discussed the controversy.Are Scott's views bigoted or understandable in some ways, the "View" crew wondered.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
