It’s a topic that has been discussed in the African American community for years — can you actually love your black skin and your black people, if you choose to love and date outside your race?
A twitter user and pro black advocate named Cynthia took LaVar Ball and the uber talented Shannon Sharpe to task just now, for being so pro-black, while dating and sleeping with white women.
Cynthia, who states her main focus is on repairing the black relationship, believes Sharpe — who was falsely accused of rape by a white woman and reportedly is engaged to one now — can’t be pro black, while doing his part to sustain white supremacy.
It’s a conversation we’ve had in our communities for years, but the question remains, is she right? The answer is she isn’t. As long as you are being disrespectful to black women or shucking and jiving for white people, you can be pro-black and love whoever you want.
