Dating white men vs black men
A woman who consistently spoke out about police brutality against black men in America and uses her platform and voice to push social justice issues to a larger stage in an effort to make a greater impact on her community.The most decorated woman in sports history has time and time over proved her ‘blackness’ (even though she never had to), including showing her appreciation for black culture and the importance of its preservation.As far as I know, her relationship hasn’t absorbed much, if any, criticism from the public.Apparently, the fragility of black masculinity happened to forget the name of the most decorated woman in sports history, as her engagement, for whatever reason, seemed to be a direct attack against their manhood.

Oh and let’s not forget, actress Zoe Saldana is married…but not to a black guy.
