Say what? NFL star and White wife toast to ‘more light-skinned babies’ (video)

Black History Month 2019 has gotten off to an atrocious start, in many people’s opinions. Actor Liam Neeson admitted that he combed the streets hunting for a Black man to kill after his friend was allegedly raped by a Black male. Gucci and Prada have wantonly defiled our culture once again with a noxious variety of blackface products they put on the market.

And now we have NFL athletes and their Caucasian girlfriends promoting light-to-white babies.

Self-hatred and colorism are cultural cancers that continue to eat away at Black Americans in 2019. This is evidenced by a group of Black men and their White wives and girlfriends who make it their mission to produce and promote more lighter-skinned babies.

Los Angeles Charger Jahleel Addae and his fiancée Lindsey Nelson are incurring the wrath of Instagram users after they and their Black male friends and White significant others posted comments they made that were captured on Lindsey’s Instagram Story.

The couple and their friends — a table full of Black men and their White girlfriends — made a toast to “more light-skinned kids.”

They were so proud of their toast that they repeated “light-skinned kids” three times.

Addae apparently felt the shrapnel from the intense blowback from his girlfriend’s post because he soon made his Instagram page private after the video went viral, but not before it was screen-captured by the likes of HeyMikeyShow.

Despite the Instagram Story getting snatched off social media, plenty of detractors aimed  their heat-seeking comments directly at Addae and his cohorts on social media, including this hot sampling provided below.
