Choa.

Taye diggs im a black pretty girl and you are so handsome and black but i dont like your honkey wife because she is white and you need to like black women only and you are my future husband taye diggs baby.

lisaAug 27, 2009

In response to Simpson`s comment about Black men and White women, i think you gotta take it on a case by case situation. in taye diggs case he is a good looking and talented brotha, but idina mizell is an equally talented and woman, I can see how chemistry can bring them together.

simpsonAug 18, 2009

WHAT DO YOU MEAN SHE DOESNT DOMINATE HIM? I TAKE OFFENSE TO THAT WHAT YOU THINK BECAUAE SHE IS FAIRLY WHITE SHE IS PERFECT? LOOK HOE MSNY FILMS HES BEEN IN WITH BEAUTIFUL BLACK WOMAN AND HE HAS TO PICK UP THIS AVERAGE WHITE HOE! WHAT IS IT WITH YOU GUYS WHEN YOU BECOME SUCCESSFUL YOU SELL OUT AND CANT HANDLE A REAL STRONG BALCK WOMAN,. HES AN UNCLE TOM!
