Michael Jordan Got Married

Last week I got angry, really really angry. Why you ask. Because Michael Jordan the sports icon of all sports icons got married. And YES, he married a White woman.

Ordinarily, this would not have made me angry. I would have fluffed it off as just another white gold digger marrying a rich Black man for his money.

However, I just so happen to have written a little Book, entitled Flight 404 with a Denzel Washington type character married to a white woman. When the movie ‘Flight’ came out, it seemed every Black Woman in America was up in arms because Denzel Washington was having a relationship with a White woman in the film.

So, last week when Michael Jordan married long time girl friend Yvette Prieto, I waited and waited and waited for the angry outcry from Black women around the country. But it never came. Why?

Are we saying movie stars have more influence than sports stars? Is that what you think?

Denzel Washington you might see once or twice a year in a film role, but the Michael Jordan types your husband, lover, son, brother, uncle, or father watches every weekend on TV. And every time that camera pans the audience your husband, lover, son, brother, uncle, or father sees that sports star’s white wife sitting in the audience. So don’t be fooled.

For example, let’s say, you’re going to have some of the top athletes, actors, and musicians and their wives over for a Memorial Day barbeque. Every wife at your table, except for one, will be White. Can you guess which one? The only other sister at your barbeque will be you and you’d be serving.

And you wonder where our power and influence has gone.   And haven’t even mentioned the Senators and Congressmen who are married to White women.

  1. “white gold digger marrying a rich Black man for his money”…Which ethnicity would she have had to be for you to consider the possibility of it being love? Would she have been a gold digger if she was Colombian or Cambodian?

    Isn’t it hard enough for two people to find each other without ruling out entire groups of people based on pigment or lack thereof?

  2. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog
    soon but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m
    looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting
    off-topic but I had to ask!
