Love sees no color….
Earlier this week, Eve stopped by Hot 97 to chat with Angie Martinez about her relationship and move to London with her billionaire businessman Maximillion Cooper. She dished on how people have been giving her a hard time over the past few years about dating outside her race and dodging the Stevie J. bullet.
On People Having an Issue With Her Dating a White Guy
I need them to stop [caring about interracial dating]. What year is it? Like, stop. Seriously. Trust me, I gotta say, it is weird for me that I’m with a white dude. Trust me. I look at him sometimes and I’m like, ‘You are so white.’ Seriously! Yes, I gotta be real like that. I’m the first black girl he’s ever been with, so we are learning. Trust me, he’s been through ‘Weave 101.’ I’ve been out on a date but not like this, not like my dude. I had to tell my mom and my step-dad who still thinks he follows Farrakhan. It’s crazy. We learn a lot about each other but people came at me like, ‘I can’t believe you’re dating a white dude and you don’t like black dudes no more.’ I’m like, ‘I love black men, it just so happens that my heart went this way right now.’ Who knows? I’m happy…My family’s happy. [My pops] is cool. He still keeps calling him ‘my friend.’ [He says], ‘How’s your friend?’ Like, it’s been almost three years.
People came at me. Now it’s better, like when I started sending pictures or people started seeing pictures on Twitter, people really came at me hard, but now it’s fine. Like I said, I do look at him like, I can’t believe I’m with a white dude. I don’t let him dance. I tell him, ‘Look like a pimp, I will dance around you.’ He can do a lot of things, but he can’t dance.
On Whether or Not Her Boyfriend Knows About Her Ruff Ryder Days
Yes, and he still can’t understand it. He thinks it’s all cute which also annoys me sometimes, like, ‘Look how cute you are.’ No, I was hard. He’s real proud though. I’ve never been with somebody so supportive in my life so it’s good. It’s a blessing.
On Dodging the Stevie J. Bullet
I have not seen it, I’ve never watched it. I can not allow myself but trust me, people give me updates. I was young and dumb. The first person that said something to me was my mother, she text me and said, ‘You dodged a bullet with that one’ and we’ve never talked about it again.
Now here’s make take on interracial dating. First of all, love sees no color. You can’t help who you fall in love with. I really don’t understand why black women get so much flack on dating outside their race when black men flaunt white women in our face every chance they get, especially when they reach a level of success. Every time I turn around, I see a black man with not just white women, but Mexican, Asian, etc., but as soon as WE step outside the “black man boundary” all of a sudden it’s a federal offense. Talk about a double standard.
I think it’s time for black women to really start living outside the box and stop waiting on the black man. If you find love in other races, don’t be afraid to embrace it or feel like you have to wait on your black man. Truth be told, they aren’t waiting on us and they jump on whatever train smoking with no problem, so why do we have to wait til we turn to dust on them? I’m just saying!!!
Honestly, if I find love in another race I’m going for it. At the end of the day, love is all everyone wants and needs.
