“I go out with White women. This makes a lot of people unhappy, mostly Black women. I’ve had them come up to me and say, `Why don’t you date a Black woman?’ Black women didn’t accept me when I was younger. I wasn’t attractive. I didn’t have money or fancy clothes. I wasn’t whatever it was they wanted.” – Bad As I Wanna Be, 1996
“It’s not that I prefer black girls, but that’s who I find myself relating to as a human being. I am also attracted to really ghetto girls, straight out the hood…a thickey, a real ‘pass the hot sauce’ type girl.” – VIBE, 1998
“It’s amazing how good it feels when someone knows how to love your body! I am having withdrawals from a certain guy lol :)…so turns out i prefer chocolate over vanilla…interesting.” and “FYI If any girls are mad that I like “chocolate” they need to seriously get OVER it. sorry you can’t have chocolate for yourself :)…So quit hating on me because I’m VANILLA and I like CHOCOLATE, ok? Because it makes you look like a hater thanks so much, bye!!! :)” – Twitter, 2010
