*UPDATED* SAY WHAT?: John Mayer Wants You To Know Why He Doesn't Sleep With Black Women

He very well could have been joking...knowing his usual comedic statements about many celeb chicks. But folks are up in arms about singer John Mayer's new Playboy interview where he compares his peen to white supremacist David Duke: PLAYBOY: Do black women throw themselves at you? MAYER: 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 f*ckin' David Duke cock. I'm going to start dating separately from my dick. PLAYBOY: Let's put some names out there. Let's get specific. MAYER: I always thought Holly Robinson Peete was gorgeous. Every white dude loved Hilary from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. And Kerry Washington. She's superhot, and she's also white-girl crazy. Kerry Washington would break your heart like a white girl. Just all of a sudden she'd be like, "Yeah, I sucked his dick. Whatever." And you'd be like, "What? We weren't talking about that." Source Your thoughts? The Randomness: 1.  We are aware of the issue some people are having when trying to comment and it will be fixed soon. Update under the cut.... So John Mayer is apologizing for also using the N-word in his intervoew.  He has not (yet?) apologized for his comments discussed here. The interview snippet: In one part, Mayer says "black people love me," and then says: "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 (n word) 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.'" Playboy: "It is true; a lot of rappers love you. You recorded with Common and Kanye West, played live with Jay-Z." Mayer: "What is being black? It's making the most of your life, not taking a single moment for granted. Taking something that's seen as a struggle and making it work for you, or you'll die inside. Not to say that my struggle is like the collective struggle of black America. But maybe my struggle is similar to one black dude's." The apology via Twitter today: "I am sorry that I used the word. And it's such a shame that I did because the point I was trying to make was in the exact opposite spirit of the word itself. It was arrogant of me to think I could intellectualize using it, because I realize that there's no intellectualizing a word that is so emotionally charged. And while I'm using today for looking at myself under harsh light, I think it's time to stop trying to be so raw in interviews... Again, because I don't want anyone to think I'm equivocating: I should have never said the word and I will never say it again." Source

EUROPEAN IMPERIALISM RULE #1= MAKE BLACKS HATE THEIR COLOR's picture

For anyone that thinks other

For anyone that thinks other races are not attracted to black women that is ridiculous. Most men of other races are too intimidated to directly approach a woman of another race because they are not sure how they will be recieved. My husband who is white had a crush on me for a year before he even uttered a word to me. Someone else on here said they posted a singles ad and got majority white responses. Back when I was single I used to internet date and was approached by TONS of white men. I have always been hit on by other races at different times in my life. I used to date black men exclusively because I had the whole "stay with black people" mentality. It took a long time for me to get over that and broaden my horizons. I have no problem with people dating outside their race. I do however have a problem with people condemning or annointing a particular race as if all the people in it are somehow the same. I hate when I hear black men saying they don't date black women because A,B, and C and I hate when black women do the same about black men. We don't have to hate ourselves to love someone of a different race. On the flip side I would never date a white man who told me he only dated black women - I would seriously question his motives and how he felt about himself.

Sisters really need to

Sisters really need to discuss this interracial matter more fully. We need to get together and really talk. I really think that if given a chance we really could figure a way to come out on top for once. There is no reason we can not. We know what we are dealing with. We know what is happening with our men (jail, gay, already committed, etc.) Basically we can have any male we want. White, hispanic, asian aint got nothing on a sister. Don't matter if she is small or big. We just need to represent as we have always done and get or take what we want.

First off, when a black woman

First off, when a black woman gets with a white man, yall are ungrateful and say crap about them. So what, he might not want to have sex with a black woman, some black woman dont want to have sex with a white man. Its his preference 99.8% of the time, there is an exception to the preferences of people. So really there should not be a rustle about it. If a black women says "Look at him...he done got wit a white gurl" its only because that women didnt have his interest in mind and she really needs to get over it. Bless Day. Love John Mayer wit his crazy self!

Allen you sound very ignorant

Allen you sound very ignorant and dumb if you ask me. The only reason why you probably feel this way about black women is because they probably played your ass to the left annnnddd you probably have a small dick. Just like you aint checkin for a black women they aint checkin for your ass. and in reality you probably cant handle a black women anyway most men cant because we like to speak our damn mind. Thats why you see the Kobe and Tiger w/ white women because they want a mouth that will suck not a mouth that can talk.

posted by Naomi Wed, February

posted by Naomi Wed, February 10, 2010 2:11 PM I didn’t take offense to anything that he said. I could have done without him saying the n word, but he made a valid point. Why should he get a “hood pass” when he has no idea what it’s like to be black or the struggles that the Black community have wen through and continue to go through? And as far as the not dating Black women part…the way he said it was weird but he makes sense. His “cock is a white supremacist” meaning he’s only slept with White women. Does that make him racist? No. My vagina is racist too because I only date Black men. There’s nothing wrong with that. Am I a racist? Then he said he needs to seperate himself from his dick meaning that maybe it’s time he tries his hand at interracial dating. I swear….people get all up in arms before thoroughly reading. ...A man's mind often is centered around (or within) his d**K

I wonder what most black

I wonder what most black women would say if they were ever asked "would you date a white man?" the answers would vary, but I'd hope it wouldn't sound as ignorant as this man's response.

WHITEIZRIGHT (2-11-10 2:53 a.m.), That Nigger comment was stupid-people of color do not want to mix with your poor white trash azz either!However, I notice that most of these White woman only want to marry a Black man because majority of the time -Black men work hard and take care of these woman. It amazes me how when people of color have money all of you racist people want to marry us and use us!Screw You WHITEIZRITE(and other dummies of your kind)!

The point of everything is

The point of everything is that Allen is angry and wants a woman of another color. Again, I definitely agree that you may not want to go over to People with this is...some non-black folks may be looking for you! I'm blessed to be who I am and I sure hope that when you get to Heaven/Hell, the person you are is a reflection of who has to let you in because if it is anything like the bible tells us, your colors won't match and you may not get in. You served your purpose though. You made some of us angry and now we are all LOMFAO at you! BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL...except on Allen and his ugly, bitch, hoe momma (I'm guessing this is what she is because she is black and that's what you say black women are)!! Tootles!!!

@ Allen. Well Allen I have in

@ Allen. Well Allen I have in fact called ppl ugly before, however, I haven't felt the need to get on a public forum for ugly ppl and say they are ugly. I don't get on uglyppl.com and say damn you all are ugly. It just would be a waste of time because if they feel like they are sexy, what difference will my opinion make. Again, not arguing with you just trying to make since of a black person, who came from a black woman and was probably raised in a family full of black women, have so much hatred and anger towards them. Were you molested by a black woman? Did they physically abuse you? See really I'm trying to understand because ppl like you end up being the DC Sniper because you have such a passion for hate.

I am not sure Allen is black

I am not sure Allen is black but my GOD!!! what sick mess coming out of your mouth. If you are black your mother is and how could you say such demeaning things. You must see your self in the mirror as ugly. There are ghetto, unattractive, loud, women in all cultures and I think everyone can say yes to that. So its sad to hear you talk about one particular race like that.

@lol Heritage is one thing...color is another. We should be proud to be the rainbow...it makes us unique. I jokingly say I am Creole...it is my heritage, but of course I am black. And knowing who I am and where I came from doesn't take away from that. When people ask me if I am proud to be black, i say no because I had nothing to do with it. That was what God deemed me to be. Instead I respond I am proud to be Chrishanda Miller, and she is of course black 100%, whatever the hell that means lol

I love John Mayer for his

I love John Mayer for his music, but especially for his sense of humor. Some of you need to lighten up. It's not that deep. He was making a joke, although it was in bad taste, it was still a joke. The energy on here is so angry all the time. Stop giving truth to the angry black woman stereotype. Rid yourself of all the anger, you'll be a lot happier because of it. There are some things that will never change or go away and discrimination/racism is one of them. We are all guilty of it. Just think of how many times you've discriminated against whites, africans, asians or latinos. Its as if, black people think they have a free pass to say whatever they want, even when its a joke, but at the same time they get up in arms at anyone else who does it. Give me a break.

@WOW...and one more thing

@WOW...and one more thing about black women coming in all shades..technically, we really don't come in that many shades...I hate it when people say that when speaking of the positives of the black race..we come in many 'shades' because one drop of black blood makes you black in this country..That in itself is racist...So for example, Mariah Carey is not black but mixed race thus, not completely black...but she may be politically black in this country...She may be culturally black...but racially she is not just black.. Let's get it straight people so we don't continue to perpetuate racism inadvertently...That's kinda like @JYGALO saying she is a beautiful black woman and then going on to state she is 25% black and then listing the other ethnicities she is mixed with..which I suppose she thinks makes her better? I have no problem with any color of people, from Alek Wek, to Halle Berry to Kate Hudson...I just think as black people we have this problem of saying how proud we are to be black and then following that with a statement about the many different shades we come in and a breakdown of our lineage..

I love when peoople show you who they really are. John and just like many in that industry that pretend to be "down", but their true feelings are very contrary to what they portray. I honestly fault "us" for always being so trusting to let others in. Just because they hang around us, like our music or voted for Obama does not mean they are really respect or even like us. Now I could care less if they don't like us, but I love knowing it up front. Furthermore, this guy is just former nerd getting women off of his chosen craft and he is not man enough to understand how to respect them, let alone date them or articulate his feelings like a man and not a boy. He is not worth the attention and hopefully he will join David Duke for their annual Klan rally. Maybe he can be the opening act.

Two: I agree with most of you about John Mayer being undesirable, he's a man whore, jumping from chick to chick and disrespecting each one of them in the process. However, I also agree with the above poster who spoke on not being complacent about Mayer using David Duke, a KLAN member, as a metaphor for his pathetic dick. Totally insensitive and shows complete lack of character. NOT OKAY. It doesn't matter if he didn't INTEND on being offensive, it is just a plain kick in the face for him to use a KKK member to describe how repulsed he is by black women. He could have kept that ish to himself.
