Congrats are in order for Charles Leno, Jr. and bride-to-be Jennifer Roth, but not everybody is jumping for joy.  And it's not just because his new fiance is white.  A black professional athlete marrying a white woman is definitely not shocking news.  But when said white woman has a history of borderline racist tweets and N-word dropping, folks are gonna pause for the cause.

Right ater he popped the question, folks rightfully took issue. Her tweets from a few years ago surfaced, and now her Twitter is on "Protected Tweets" status:

 

 

And before you give this person the benefit of the doubt they haven't earned, there's a tweet (or two) for that too:

Maybe he is unbothered by her past or unbothered even if she still says these things in the present. His prerogative. But folks will still have an opinion, especially since he made his proposal so public:

Everybody can certainly marry whoever they want, regardless of race and reason. But that doesn't make these points any less valid either.  Folks need to stop acting like some black men marrying white women simply because they are white isn't a thing.And that some black men don't inadvertently place them on a pedestal above black women, which isn't necessary:

 

We wish them the best!
