SINGER ROBIN THICKE SAYS THERE ARE GOOD BLACK MEN OUT THERE AND ADVISES BLACK WOMEN ‘TO TAKE BETTER CARE OF THEIR MEN’

Robin Thicke with actress wife Paul Patton

When this Essence interview featuring blue-eyed soul singer Robin Thicke was brought to my attention earlier today (thanks Pinboard) I laughed out loud in the street.

Robin is married to actress Paula Patton and because of this union Essence thought it would be a good idea to ask him the following question…

ESSENCE: The media often tells Black women that they’re better off dating White guys. What’s your response to that?

THICKE: I think that’s ridiculous. There are so many good Black men out there that are hardworking, decent, and handsome, you know? To start that rumor is as bad as starting any other negative rumor. There are great Black men out there. There are only a few good White men — trust me. (Laughs) Good luck finding a good White man who understands your journey. I only have three White friends. I’ve got 20 Black male friends, who are all good men who take good care of their wives, and good care of their children. I know amazing Black men. Maybe the women have to take better care of their men. Maybe you’re being too stubborn. Maybe you’re not saying you’re sorry. You have to take good care of him, too. You have to give love to get love. 

Thank you so much Dr Thicke. Your advice and powerful words of wisdom has given us all hope.

Hahahahahahahahahahaha!

  1. Hmm, what journey is he talking about? I think looking for a white man who understands ‘our journey’ is not the way to go. He is speaking like a typical white man. 😀

  2. So he’s one of those who thinks he’s a Black man trapped in White man body, lol!

    I am not sure why Essence even asked him that weird question?

    I see Paula and Robin are now the poster child for interacial union ( White Man / Black Woman). lol!

  3. LOL I ALWAYS say that Robin and Paula actually believe they are a militant black couple. I’m convinced that in their house, they call each other Imohep and Nefertiti while dressed head-to-toe in Kente.

  4. Tahirah :LOL I ALWAYS say that Robin and Paula actually believe they are a militant black couple. I’m convinced that in their house, they call each other Imohep and Nefertiti while dressed head-to-toe in Kente.

    and is she actually black… i always thought she had some kind of mix in her she looks bi racial..not that it matters to america and their one drop rule

  6. I’ve blogged about black women in the UK already, I personally wouldn’t totally dismiss his statement as there are some points that he made in it which are true.

  7. yes she is Black even with the one drop rule.lol! That’s how we roll over here.lol~ But yes she has Black parents….And she is proud to be Black ….she’s not like others who try to say they are mixed and are not…. But Robin made some good points… But i didn’t need to hear it from him. He needs to chill a bit…. If you are not a Black man talking about a Black man i’m not trying to hear you….
