If you’re on the east coast, chances are you’ve spent the entire day watching sitcoms and reading celebrity gossip…
No? Ok, maybe it’s just me. Lucky for you, however, my aimless time-wastage caused me to stumble across a real gem today: John “David Duke” Mayer. Don’t get the reference? Read on:
Basically, John Mayer, famous singer/songwriter of the caucasian persuasion (rhyme!) and Tweeter-extraordinaire, gave an eye-opening interview to Playboy magazine, in which he describes his sex life and sexual preferences in gross detail.
That, in itself, is no big deal. I mean, it’s Playboy, for Christ’s sake. What is interesting, however, is how much dude talked about race, specifically Black people. Mayer describes in one part of the interview how he has never really “opened himself up” to dating/sexing Black women:
“My dick is sort of like a white supremacist. I’ve got a Benetton heart and a fuckin’ David Duke cock.”
If you dutifully followed that link, you would discover that David Duke is a well-known Klan member and famed white supremacist. Meaning, John Mayer’s nether-regions are partial to white women, Klan-style…
Ladies, how about we inundate his Twitter to let him know what he’s missin’ out on????
In addition, he goes on to point out his acquisition of a “hood pass,” and coolly drops the N-word bomb like that’s in or something. What exactly qualifies a person to be a card-carrying member of the “hood”? And who issues said passes?
I guess being on Chappelle’s Show and being friends with ?uestlove makes you…. Blackable**? Who knew.
Or maybe it’s because John jams with BB King all the time. Him being a legitimate talent in the “blues guitarist” world and all. Is that enough to give him the necessary cred?
Look, I’m a fan of John. In fact, I’m listening to “Your Body’s A Wonderland” as I write this post.
“One mile to every inch of your skin like porcelain. One pair of candy lips and your bubblegum tongue.” …….
ANYWAY, all I’m saying is, do Black people really like John Mayer as much as he thinks they do? If so, at what point does liking the guy turn into wholesale co-signing dude when he drops the N-word??
If not, perhaps we should issue homeboy a new membership: to The “Idiot white people who try to be down… Plus, Michael Steele” Club.
What are your thoughts about this hullabaloo? Funny? Entertaining? Racist? SPEAK!
**Blackable = “likable by Black people”; this term will, henceforth, be used to describe all manner of human who pretends to be down for street cred purposes. This can and does include Michael Steele. (I just like clowning on the guy, gimme a break.) You heard it here first!
