Taye Diggs has opened up about receiving backlash over not dating black women. During an interview with Van Nathan on “The Red Pill Podcast,” the actor admitted that he might not be able to date white women again after being dragged. He said, “When I was 13, I was reading a magazine and there was a picture of a black woman and I said, ‘Oh, she’s pretty, I want to marry her.’ And my mom said, ‘Oh honey, you’re going to marry a white woman.’ It hurt my feelings but she was right.” Diggs went on to say that he felt resentment “deep inside” for black women because of the response he received about his interracial relationship.
He continued, “I don’t wanna say I suppress [the resentment,] but I just watch it. Even though you understand the logic, I don’t know if I can mess with a white girl now. I feel like I’ve had to deal with that so long its changed what I think I like, what I’m attracted to. It’s not where my eyes gravitate to naturally.”
