On yesterday I was reading the Sunday paper and I saw a young interracial couple announcing their engagement. After reading about the couple, he had a nice job, average looks, educated and also a member of K-A-Y fraternity. She on the other hand was totally the opposite…Heavy set, none educated, unappealing and did I mention fat..Normally, it would have been overlooked until later on when I was watching a show called “Intervention”. The story was about a former NBA player who had gotten hooked on crack. Dude was married to a beautiful sista and they produced 2 beautiful daughters. Anyway to make a long story short, instead of getting his life on track with his family, he ran off with a white crack head chick that he couldn’t leave feeling that she would get hurt. This is a must story to see…This is a question that has been asked before but again why is that brothers are going out flaunting these Rosie O’Donnell, Roseanne Arnold, crack head Susies??? It seems as though brothers can only select from a certain social and economic pool??? Why aren’t there any brothers on the arms of wealthy white women like Paris Hilton??? And for those smart axxxx name 2 couples….

    It’s their relationship and their business. Who cares what race they are?

    Poster you missed the point—-or perhaps you don’t want to look at the truth. The best looking white women would only date a black man if he has money$$$$ Which leave us witht the poor white trash which you yourself wouldn’t want. Personnally I wouldn’t date or marry a white gurl cause they are only good for one thang

    Isiah, I realize that the guest blogger is your boy and all, but why do you keep letting him put up these sorry ass blogs? Your blog entries are interesting while his seem to portray a pathetic attempt at causing controversy. On the days when you don’t have anything to write about, just don’t put anything up and let the “guest blogger” get is own site.

    Yea, Ike is one of us! He cares about white issues.

  6. Anonymous July 17, 2006 7:13 pm 

    this kind of ignorance could force me to stop reading the “insite”.
    isiah, you are too good for this stupidity.
    why isn’t michael worried about our kids who are failing in school, dropping out, not working, doing drugs or crime and being sent to prison. all he thinks about is why a black man would date a fat white woman?
    he’s a loser.

    by the way, why is michael worried about another man’s relationship. what does his wife look like, what kind of job does she have, or is he married, divorced, gay etc;
    my bet is that he’s a loser and no woman of any race would want him.

    Ike, he could have come up with question with more substance. Stike one for Gildon.

  8. Anonymous July 17, 2006 8:11 pm 

    How about adressing the question and stop attacking the messenger. This is a huge issue in the black community. Black men, black women all talk about it all the time. Just because race is not an issue in your white world doesn’t mean it’s not an issue in some african americans world. And that’s just like white readers attempting to force Isiah to get rid of his friends guest spot because all of you white people don’t like it. Ike should just come home and go black. Call it the black Insite. Every time race is mentioned on this site someone is attacked by the whites. I’m tired of it. We all can post together as long as we don’t remember we’re black with you holier than thou white folk. How about saying the question is dumb instead of attacking the author. How about going past this article if you don’t like it. Why do you have to attack and try to change. Just move on without beating the hell out of people with your petty insults. Now my response to the question is yes it happens much too often. We as african american women are tired of our black men dating these white whales while they pass up good eligible sisters. Great question mike.

    white whales? your lack of respect for people is alarming. black women have a higher incidence of obesity, does that mean they don’t deserve love?
    let people find love where and with whom they want, and leave them alone. concentrate on YOUR OWN LOVE LIFE.

    so what if someone wants to date an overweight white woman, what if they date a midget, someone with poor credit, bad teeth, a bald spot, no college degree or someone on welfare. people make their own choices and must live with them, and without the judgemental eyes of the public.

    This is a good question. It’s funny, when ever Chris Rock talks about black issues white people are all ears but I guess he’s rich and Oprah like him so it’s ok.

    You people love to dodge race issues but yet are the most racist people on this planet.

  11. Anonymous July 18, 2006 6:18 am 

    the question itself is racist.

  12. Anonymous July 18, 2006 8:05 am 

    The question is not racist mere fact. I have never seen a wealthy “established” white man with a sista as his mate/wife (not sex toy). I haven’t seen his with a “white chick look a like” owning up to her blackness. However, very often……..too often wealthy “established” black men have non-sistas on there side. What’s up brothas? If sistas don’t “fit the bill” (extensive I might add) hold white chicks to that same “bill” and see if they measure up. From the looks of it your standards tend to drop when your girl is white.

    I agree with the 4th commenter. Your guest blogger’s entries are very weak attempts at creating controversy and discussion. The topics are rarely very thought-provoking and always very poorly presented.

    Keep up the good work, Isiah, but your guest blogger’s posts bring down the overall quality of your blog. . .

    Yea Ike we love you but not your ghetto homies. Stick with us Ike and you’ll go places.

  15. Harold81 July 18, 2006 1:31 pm 

    Well, I would say it’s a combination of things.

    1. The long influence of a majority white society, whose media feeds Black Americans their standard of beauty, which happens to be caucasion features.

    2. We as black people know what it means to have black skin in this country and the negative things that historically and currently come with that. So certain situations and issues that come up, we are secretly praying our skin color has nothing to do with it. So as a black TV reporter in a suite who is always on television, approaches that white woman and she runs away, deep down he hope she didn’t run because of his skin color. We just want to be people who are not defined by our skin color. We just want to be accepted in a land who, historically as a whole, has been very hostile towards us.

    I said all of that to say I think many “successful” blacks subconciously feel a sense of accomplishment and acceptance by the majority society if they have a white spouse or a mate that is not black, whether they are actually accepted or not. Sometimes, it seems that black man with that non-black wife on his arm is saying “I made it, look at my wife” to the black community, and they are saying to the white community:

    “I’m ok, don’t descriminate against me, I’m a good guy, see look at my wife. You are white, and powerful and rich and you think a blonde haired blued eyed big boobed woman is the epitome of beauty and so do I. So see, I’m just like you. You can feel comfortable around me, sir. I don’t have any racial problems like so many other blacks. I’m not like them.”

    3. Fallouts from Black American Slavery, and the lingering mindset that anything associated with white or anything that is not black, is better. So in many cases, you will find successful black men with “unattractive” wives with nothing but light skinned children with “good” hair on their brains.

    4. The couples simply fall in love. Simple as that.

    5. Many black women who tend to come on too strong in many different areas, can be a turn off to most men. Of course there are individual preferences but as a whole, I believe that is a turn off for men. Black women in America and Black Americans in general, have had to be very strong and build a strong defense mechanism, and for good reason. But it’s just sometimes that defense mechanism and strength can overshadow the rest of their personality, which can create many illusions about us.

    On another note, Ike please continue to allow your guest bloggers. It is so very easy to simply not read the guest blogs if they annoy some people to the point of actually boycotting your site.

    i’m not worried about black men and white women. what about black men who won’t date dark sista’s. or will date a light skin heavy set chick, but not a prettier dark skin one? lets face it, this does happen.

  17. Anonymous July 18, 2006 6:11 pm 

    Great topic for discussion Mike G.. You could not have been more accurate with this one, that’s why you struck a nerve with some. Anonymous A-Z should ignore the messanger and listen to the message. This is an issue in the black community that should be discussed. To those of you who said this was a poor attempt to stir up controversy, it worked, you read and commented. The brothers standard lower when dating outside their race. The more attractive white women will only date brothers whose tax bracket it higher.

  18. Anonymous July 18, 2006 6:20 pm 

    What exactly is the issue here? Is it that there aren’t enough celebrity black men with heavy white women? Or is it that there aren’t enough average shmuck black men that have supermodel white women as their wife? This is what the guest blogger used as examples. How is this really an issue? I mean come on, ppl are upset because rich men have attractive wives? Maybe the issue is that everyone on the e channel looks better than the rest of the population.

    Looking at the issue from the other side- How come all these black men with money keep taking all the pretty white women? Oh wait, they really aren’t so it’s not an issue.

    This is a stupid topic, next please.

    If we can’t get rid of Bill O’reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity or Clarence Thomas then we’re keeping Mcihael Gildon on the insight. That’s just the way it is.

    Black,white, or green. It’s CRAZY to leave your family for any reason. A lot of men date woman who they can or feel they can control. Not necessarily looking for a equal match. Less long someone they are on the same level with for life. We change with age as humans. Most people pick for looks or money. Has nothing to do with the inside. That’s why only 4 in 10 marriages last past 2 years

  21. Anonymous July 21, 2006 7:05 pm 

    It seems everyone missed the message. And, I am willing to bet that the bloggers who wrote why does anyone care if a good looking black man marries an ugly white women is white. Because it is not affecting your community. The point is, there are many well to do, well-educated, comes from a good family, who will knock down a beautiful, educated, successful black woman to race over to the nasty, sloppy, uneducated, no teeth, trying to act black, white woman. And, the question is why? Are this men just insecure, do they suffer from self-hatred, or does having a non-black woman on his shoulder just makes him feel more socially acceptable? We’ll probably never know. My advice to the sistas. If he don’t want you, you damn sure don’t need or want him, because he ain’t worth it. Go out and get a white man. Whether white women want to admit or not, white men love black men, too, but sistas will not give most of them the time of day. Maybe, it’s time we turn the tables.
