Chad Ochocinco On The Lack of Black Women On His Show

Published by Runteldat on Thursday, July 15, 2010 at 12:00 am.

Many black women rolled their eyes at the premiere of Chad Ochocinco’s reality show, Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch, given that it confirmed previous rumors that very few black women are to be found in Chad’s pool of love.

Chad has since started to discuss the criticism – on The Wendy Williams Show – and now in an interview with Essence.com. Here’s  some of what the football star turned football Flavor Flav had to say.

On the criticism he’s received:

I don’t understand why. Those who know me didn’t think twice about it because they already know how I am. I deal with all types of women. My mind set is that I think outside the box. I’m all over the place and I want to experience everything. There’s nothing wrong with [Black women] at all.  If I did it the way they wanted though, there still would have been something to fuss about. It’s a lose-lose for me because no matter how I do it, there’s going to be an argument. I did Wendy Williams yesterday and I said for those who are offended about it, I apologize.  But if you ever run into me, you’d date me.”

Humble man is he.

On if he was surprised by the criticism:

I can’t do anything about that. I’ve never heard other races complaining about their men dating outside of their race besides Black people. I hate that we continue to pull that race card.”

I hate when black people don’t know what they’re talking about. Ever hear of lynchings or the fact that miscegenation used to be illegal, Chad? Know of which you speak before spouting it out.

On whether he or not understands where some black women are coming from:

Yeah, but I still can’t appease you. I have a preference. I’m not trying to appease you on my show. I’m trying to find happiness for me and it doesn’t come from just dealing with one type of woman. “

On his preference:

“Black, White, Chinese, I don’t care what you are. If you put a smile on my face, I don’t want much.”

He’s free to date whomever he wants, but black people are not the only people who complain about interracial dating. That’s ridiculous.

Chad has how many children by how many women? He has not commited to any of them and I believe most of them are black. He was giving his white dancing partner on DWTS diamond jewelry but his children live in the ghetto! I don’t think black women are missing out on anything.

He is the classic black athlete…always considered unattractive until the reached athletic stardom when the fame ends they will go back to the ghetto and looked at all the opportunity they lost and the wreck they made of their family life and children will be the first order of business they will need to repent for, Black women are not missing much in no longer being victimized by men like Chad.

This due to the lack of knowledge of the truth of how wonderful we really are and the brain washing of the white man through the media and show much like Chad’s .

I have to honestly say I agree in some terms that all people have a preference. People need to stop worrying about color and just be happy. I do not think it is a big deal when people date other races and making a big deal out of it just keeps the racist thing going. What happened to all the historical people that fought to end racism? It is obvious some people keep it going. I think that people from all races are beautiful and people from all races are good and bad etc. Men and woman from any race should be free to pursue any race they choose without people getting mad. If someone prefers a man with dark hair or braids or blonde hair, or blue eyes etc it is ok? Not really getting that all people make their choices and it is their choice noone has a right to bash them.

He is a Fool, the white man can’t stand a black man touching his daughter! But if he has cash, then you can buy his blessings.

And with all other races the same applies… The teach there children self pride and self love, and if he had any he would want his kids to be born as a image of himself, lips, hair, nose, skin and all.



lesli Said on

DID HE NOT REMEMBER THE RECENT BACKLASH AGAINST TERREL DOING THAT COMMERCIAL WITH THAT OLD DRIED UP HAG FROM DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES? SORRY TO DISAPPOINT,BUT WE HAVEN’T COME THAT FAR FROM THE LYNCHINGS HE SPEAKS OF. JUST PLAY FOOTBALL AND LOOK CUTE OK SWEETIE. YOU LIKE WHAT YOU LIKE,BUT DON’T CALL OUT BLACKS FOR “PULLING THE RACE CARD”,AS YOU PUT IT. SOME OF US ACTUALLY LIVE IN THE REAL WORLD. WE AREN’T AS FORTUNATE AS YOU. NOT ALL OF US CAN THROW A FOOTBALL. YOU AREN’T THAT RELEVENT.
