Taye Diggs: In 2018, Ebony ran a headline “Taye Diggs Has a Complex About Dating White Chicks, and He Blames Black Women” and it was in regard to his comments on the Red Pill podcast.
“To this day, I still get, ‘I thought you only like White girls?’” he told host Van Lathan. “It doesn’t matter how I explain myself. There’s always going to be someone talking.”
“Deep down inside [there’s resentment],” the 47-year-old continued. “I don’t wanna say I suppress it, but I just watch it. When it happens to you personally, even though you understand the logic, there’s trauma there.”
“I don’t know if I can ever mess with a White girl now,” he added. “I don’t like that. That goes against who I am as a person. I feel like I’ve had to deal with that so long it has changed what I think I like, what I’m attracted to.”
