During a recent interview on the “Red Pill” Podcast with Van Lathan, actor Taye Diggs explained how hard it has been lately for him to date white women because of the backlash he receives from black women.
In the interview, Diggs said:
To this day, I still get, ‘I thought you only like white girls?’” Diggs said. “It’s been a life lesson. It doesn’t matter how many times I explain myself, there’s always going to be someone talking.”
Asked if he had any resentment against black women, he said, “It took me a minute to not be offended. Deep down inside [there’s resentment]. I don’t wanna say I suppress it, but I just watch it. When it happens to you personally, even though you understand the logic, there’s trauma there.”
“I don’t know if I can ever mess with a white girl now,” he continued. “I don’t like that. That goes against who I am as a person. I feel like I’ve had [to] deal with that so long it has changed what I think I like, what I’m attracted to.”
Listen to the full context of what Taye said below:
