Kenya Moore Says All Black Men Are In Jail Or Gay
RHOA star Kenya Moore recently sat down with HelloBeautiful and chatted about her current relationship status. The reality star made headlines this month after it was revealed her ‘Millionaire Matchmaker’ boo was already married to a white woman.
When asked about the best thing about dating outside of her race, Kenya says a lot of Black men are locked up or already taken…
Kenya Moore: For Black women, we just have to be open because there’s not a lot of eligible bachelors, that are Black, for us to choose from anymore. If you take away the ones that are gay, in jail, this is a real issue. Statistics show why we don’t have the choices. You take the ones that are gay, in jail, don’t have a job, the ones that are already married and the ones that are dating and marrying outside our race, what do you have left? You don’t have much to choose from. The nicest thing is that you have options.
Kenya also shared her thoughts on unconventional ways of meeting someone–like online, “Millionaire Matchmaker,” etc. work better than traditional dating?
I remember very clearly in my 20s, I had a roommate that met someone online and I remember how taboo it was. “You did what?! You met someone where?! You’re going to go out on a date with somebody you met online!?” It was just so shocking that we felt that this person was putting herself in danger to meet a serial killer and now it’s just completely the opposite. It’s more efficient. You can quickly discern what you like and what you don’t. You just have far more options and I think Internet dating, matchmaking services, the less conventional ways back in the day are just a thing of the past. Now, it’s for more effective to open and broaden your horizons as to what options you have out there for dating. I 100% think that online dating, match maker services in addition to your friends and conventional ways of meeting people is absolutely acceptable now.
Do you think Kenya Moore’s sentiments are right about Black men? Is there a shortage of Black men out there for Black women? Hit the flip for more next…
