In a standup routine, she once stated, "I used to sleep with mostly Hispanic guys — but now I prefer consensual!" Her menacing comment, veiled and defended as a “joke,” insinuates, once again, that men of color, here Latinos specifically, are more prone to rape, a bigoted lie that is at once untrue, racist and mocks the reality of sexual assault.It was like all these new things that were coming into sight at such a fast pace in such a short time, I was just like, “We need a lot of work.” We can’t be seen as a group of people that want to have a unified message of equality and no discrimination if we ourselves are dividing ourselves through whatever methods, whether someone is feminine or someone is masculine or someone is black or someone is white.
On the flip side, what made things even crazier was that my black friends were upset with me because I was dating someone that wasn’t black.
I had this one black friend who was still in the closet, he was actually rather upset at the fact that I was dating a white guy.
Eventually I started meeting people and making friends and there was this one time I was actually just chatting with this one guy and the conversation was going great and there was definitely a really cool connection there, there were a lot of similarities and I said, “Oh, do you want to grab a drink some time?
” And he goes, “You’re really sweet, you’re really nice, but I don’t date black guys.” He was just like, “Well, they’re just not my type.” I was like, “Well what does that mean, you don’t like me because I’m black?
The actress-comedian must’ve realized that she committed yet another racist no-no when, after just one retweet and two likes, she deleted the tweet, thankfully not before the good people of the Internet took a screenshot, however.
