Why People are pissed at John Mayer

Blackness

Written by:

In the midst of sharing his thoughts on sex, Mayer also took time to give a few eyebrow-raising soundbites on race, particularly his strong African American fanbase and his predilection for Caucasian women, when it comes to matters of lust.

“I am a very…I’m just very. V-E-R-Y,” Mayer said. “And if you can’t handle very, then I’m a douche bag. But I think the world needs a little very. That’s why black people love me.”

“Someone asked me the other day, ‘What does it feel like now to have a hood pass?” Mayer continued. “And by the way, it’s sort of a contradiction in terms, because if you really had a hood pass, you could call it a n—-r pass. Why are you pulling a punch and calling it a hood pass if you really have a hood pass? But I said, ‘I can’t have a hood pass. I’ve never walked into a restaurant, asked for a table and been told, ‘We’re full.'”

“My d–k is sort of like a white supremacist,” Mayer went on. “I’ve got a Benetton heart and a f—in David Duke cock. I’m going to start dating separately from my d–k.”

    Amazed at how many women have come to this man’s response. It’s not that he said “I do not prefer black women” he said I have a “[sic] David Duke cock”. Not sure if any of you kids know what the KKK is, but it’s not something to be played with or be flippant about.

    The perception of black women in this society, in most of the world, is of a female that can be set aside, overlooked, used and disposed of. Even our own men are expected to prefer a woman of another ethnicity before they do a sister. Be careful in being dismissive and blase about these type of remarks. Be CARE full with each other, please. What we say and do matters.

    I would have to disagree. We all have discerning tastes. He used comedy to make an awkward point. If you’re race-sensitive then you will read his comment as racist. If you look at it from an intellectual rather than emotional point of view, you will see he was simply using a metaphor.

    I don’t see anything Mayer said as being racist. He used the language of racists to make edgy and sarcastic analogies, but he didn’t say anything that implied that any race is inferior.
