The subject of black male celebrities and their choice of wives, girlfriends and jump-offs stormed back to the forefront of urban conversation recently when comedian D.L. Hughley, in an interview with NPR, railed against sisters, saying that he’s never “run across an angrier group of people” in the country. It was an  interesting and combustible conversation for someone who has been married to a black woman for 26 years and has two daughters.

But the following list of black male celebrities are not married to black women. This lengthy list of individuals may or may not share Hughley’s sentiment; they may simply prefer to bring women of other ethnicities into their nests.

This is a list of black male celebrities and dignitaries who have married or date white women, some exclusively.

    Lewis Hamilton is half white and Nicole S. is not white. I think you people at RO don’t no white from anything else. Some of these couples are not black-white couples. Hell a few you chose were black men married to black women. She does not be very dark with kinky hair to be classified as black. You know we come in different shades don’t you? Who does the research for this trash?

    • patches Aldukhil

      I am wondering if you are black and just jealous that a black man would choose an race over their own.

  • Tatiana the Gorgeous

    Are you blacks retarded half of these women are latina or Asian are you too stupid o recognize other races? The truth is though Black men refer white women no straight white men refer black women they are just gays in the closet hahah!

    • patches Aldukhil

      It does not matter they have chosen a female outside of their race.

      • Devin Clarke

        Honestly..These men end up marrying white women,because its the last symbol of success.I know you want to believe that love conquers all and that they just happened to meet someone of another race .but it’s no accident once a black man becomes wealthy he chooses whites.its called post racial syndrome and its quite well documented.white is a status symbol .its a fact, many black men openly admit it..Im a black man ,I know.

        • robby

          Once you go black, you dont go back? Thats because white men are repulsed by you!

          • Robert

            Once you leave white, you’ve done it right. White men are inferior and more than likely if she marries a white man, she’ll be fucking black guys anyway since they love the cuckold thing.

      • skoot

        u are so right,thumbs up to sweetier

    • Nonya damn business

      Your name should be Tatiana the stupid. A few were other than white, one was Asian (with Eddie Griffin) John Legends wife isn’t white, but she’s not black either. Now, its PREFER not refer, and straight white men who prefer black women are NOT in the closet gay u stupid cousin humpin stump. Are you blacks retarded? No, but you are. At least your comment sure is.

  • patches Aldukhil

    I do not understand in this day and age blackmen blackwomen, whitemen whitewomen, asianmen and asian women …………ect they are all dating out of their own race. We are all human beings and I never saw in any religious book that says you have to be the same race to marry.

    • ChangeNow4aa

      That’s because white people want a piece every thing and every one. There are books that teach you to stay with your own people and stay away from Same Sex… But this violates your “RIGHTS” We are NOT all human beings. I don’t know exactly what white people are.. but it has nothing to do with HUMANITY or being Human.
