Chris Rock_ Black And White Dating

  1. 1. Chris Rock: Black And White DatingI was watching Chris Rocks latest stand up comedy and couldnt help but roll my eyes at his views oninterracial dating - black and white dating to be precise. And after hearing what he had to say, Irealized for as long as black and white dating exists, black women and white men will always be ateach others necks especially when a white man dates a black woman and when a black man dates awhite woman.Back to Chris Rock: In his view, all black men do when they date white women is exercising anoption.

And for those who happened to stumbleonto interracial dating, I believe its because they stumbled upon a gem...
