RUSSELL SIMMONS BLOGS – DEFENDS HIS CHOICE IN GIRLFRIENDS

Old Russell ‘fact finder’ Simmons has taken time out to defend his choice  in girlfriends…..

Note: while I was searching for a politically correct photo for this blog I found one of the beautiful model Kiara at my Diamond Empowerment event who I have known for ten years. And no, we are not dating-I’m not THAT lucky.

It seems that almost every week since I have been single there is a headline on some black internet site that says something like “Russell Simmons is FINALLY Dating a Sista?!?!?!” Surely you have seen these, its a constant in my life.

I am of the view as a philanthropist and businessman that all press is good if it can help me as a brand or bring in more money to my five charities-especially in this time of economic crisis when every charity is struggling to keep afloat.    However,  I do find this blatent racism offensive.  Just last week I was out with my friend Veronica Verikova and the next day had to read about “uncle Russell’s brand new blonde bust down”. She doesn’t deserve that, nobody does! And yes, it is offensive.

Some people believe that if you date a person from another race you are somehow denying who you are. They believe that dating someone with a different skin color somehow  makes you a self-hater, loathing that which makes you yourself.  They believe that it’s an insult to your parents,  ancestors, heritage and community.  I find this view much more telling about the people who say this than about those who do find a physical, spiritual, mental and emotional connection with someone who looks different than themselves.

Choosing someone who I am physically attracted to and who also inspires, uplifts, educates and keeps me interested is my first priority- not their race. And if these bloggers recall I did marry a woman who was half African American. Furthermore, I have had many high profile relationships with African American women,  such as the only serious relationship that I have had since my divorce (who some may already know) with my dear friend yoga teacher/model/philantropist  Porschla Coleman.

Elijah Muhammad once said that African Americans were chained  for so long that when those chains were released we refused to move. I get where these feelings are coming from but I don’t condone them. That kind of collective consciousness by a group  promotes negativity in a world that has enough hatred and intolerance – and it saddens me to see these pollutants in my community.

Look, at 51 years old, if I’m still in the blogs and people are still talking about me then I’m lucky no matter what they say. I’m fortunate because as my good friend Bono says, “your cash is your cashe” and I’ve got five charities that need funding. Continue Reading…..

I’ve never really paid much attention to Russell and his choice of girlfriends. But on the odd occasion when I do see pictures of him canoodling up next to a sexy young filly, I think to myself, ‘if this man didn’t have fame and a fat bank account those women proberly wouldn’t stop to spit on him if he was lying in the street on fire’.

And look at him shamelessly name dropping – ” I’m fortunate because as my good friend BONO says, “your cash is your cash”

Yeah WHATEVER Russell!!! You have ultra famous friends –  big whoopty doo! 

Anyway you have admittedly made some valid points. Now run a long and get back to doing what you do best.  Working and spreading a bag of lies with those diamond crooks De Beers.

    Gwan Russ’, (No I’m not in support, but he is funny though)

  2. Why protesteth so? Feel free as a bird.

    Just throwing out a question people:

    What if equally famous white male stars were only ever associated with women of colour? Do you think it would be of equal talking point amongst white women?

  3. I think that in truth the answer is a straight yes, but due to the unlimited supply of decent white men compared to the limited supply of decent black men (if u belive that, I don’t), we may not consider that white women would have a problem with this, but sure in thier groups and circles they discuss this, in a similar why that black women do….

    along the lines of, is a white women no good for him no more???

    interesting question though,

  4. “uncle Russell’s brand new blonde bust down”….LOL

    I think to myself, ‘if this man didn’t have fame and a fat bank account those women proberly wouldn’t stop to spit on him if he was lying in the street on fire’…..I don’t believe they would have.

    @ Reclaimin

    Biracial dating have the same effect in the white community, they don’t speak up about it because they’re afraid of been label as racist, so they keep in on the down low.

    I said this once and I would say it again most sucessful black man date woman of other race because the believe it make them more socialy acceptable.

  5. but it does (GIVE THEM ACCEPTANCE), in certain circles, and the men that want in on those circles or want to Stay in those circles go that route and gard to! LOL

  6. …YAWN…..BURP….WHATEVER UNCLE TOM – SORRY, UNCLE RUSS!

    BECAUSE YOU SEE, WHILST YOU ARE AIMLESS IN YOUR ATTEMPT TO LIBERATE AND INTERGRATE THE BLACK RACE THROUGH YOUR ROMANTIC INTERLUDES OF NO REAL INTEREST, YOUR EX-WIFE HAS CHOSEN TO AIM AT RESTORING IT WITH HER CHOICE OF THE DARKEST BROTHA SHE COULD FIND! CONSEQUENTLY, SHE IS SOOOOOOO MUCH MORE INTERESTING RIGHT NOW, PLUS WE LOVE HER HUSTLE…..SO THAT MAKES YOU A REDUNDANT OLD MAN NOW….CLAIM ‘THAT’ SHIT PLAYA!

    I STILL LIKE MY RIBENA UNDILUTED THANKS UNCLE…….
