I hear you but I read another article that he was asked for ID and showed it to the cops. If true, that's why he wasn't cuffed.

This is why on the last thread I said I'd wait to hear their side of the story. On FB, it was said that they looked as though they were doing more than kissing and if it looked like something more, I can't blame anyone for thinking there was prostitution going on especially since most couple keep the heavy and hot stuff behind closed doors. So I can't cry foul against the LAPD on this one and not even the one who called police. With that said, I hope that Danielle has a bright future and I wish her much success in Hollywood. Thank God she wasn't seriously injured or killed by the cops. Nothing wrong with showing your ID especially if the cops were called to the scene.

Ok, I just read two different articles stating they were not randomly approached by the LAPD but that someone called the cops on them. I hope they comment on that whether or not that's true.  Here is one of the articles, second paragraphs http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2755113/Django-Unchained-actress-claims-handcuffed-detained-police-mistaken-prostitute-kissed-husband.html?ito=social-facebook


The police were still wrong but if in fact they were called, that means they did not randomly stop a black woman kissing a white man assuming she's a prostitute. Can't wait for the interview.

To clarify, I meant could the actress still sue if she refused to show ID.

Can they sue since she refused to show ID? Are there a lot of black prostitutes in the area? IR couples with black female partners? Was this just a kiss or hot and heavy? NOT blaming them at all just trying to figure out what possessed that cop to question them other than pure racism. I can't wait to hear what her boyfriend was saying to the police officers because I only see her in handcuffs. How did he defend her?

Agreed. I personally think that most gender minded black women are fully aware that they are vulnerable. That's the whole point, we are victims too. Our stories aren't often told in favor of what happens to black men.

Good advice. She should let go and move on. There are plenty of good looking hotties out there to form serious relationships with.  No need for her to feel inferior. After all, he cheated on a pretty blonde girl with you and unfortunately, you are not the first woman he cheated with and likely not the last.

First I want to say that I'm currently not looking (keep going back and forth on that). But when I do decide to look, I will be excluding black men from my dating pool (not attracted). I am unapologetic about that. So, I don't feel that any black woman is wrong for excluding black men. It depends on motive. Example, I won't go into too much detail but there was one white guy from my past that had I continued anything with him, I would have ended up a victim of domestic violence. He never hit me but he did get mad at me and hurled a few insults. I need to mention again that he's white. To make a long story short, I was NOT ABOUT to stick around to see if he would actually hit me. Did I mention he's white? My point is, it is a strategic mistake to assume that just because a man is white (or nonblack) he's less likely to display ratchet behavior. He might just be better at hiding the evidence. He may want marriage before children, be educated, good job, or whatever. But there are some things that we cannot assume won't happen because he's white. White women are victims of DV, white husbands cheat big time (I've been solicited many times by married white men), maybe he doesn't have kids by his side piece but he might have paid for a couple of abortions...get my drift?



Ones motive for excluding black men should not be based on behavior. How is that different from saying black women have attitudes so no man should date them? Date/marry who you want or exclude who you want. Just understand that motives are key and you could be setting yourself up for a huge disappointment if you think white and other nonblack men are angels. No, I'm not saying these things to defend black men but to encourage black women not to let their guard down for their own sake.

@lindsaynagle That's what I meant. Latino men are a safe option for black women and Asian women are a safe option for white men. I personally don't think the feminine ideal applies since we are talking about men and women rather than how black women are viewed vs Asian women.  Men don't have to live up to a feminine ideal, LOL. If so, we'd all be in trouble. LOL

Not really. The Latinos most black women are willing to date are the mestizos and those from Puerto Rico, Cuba, some of whom have distant black ancestry. etc. They aren't necessarily speaking of those of pure white Ancestry (Spain or Argentina, etc).

I'm speaking from my own experiences. I realize that other people of color can be more racist than whites, but I have found that Latino men are NOT known for their fear of black men. All one has to do is look at the LA or even NY gang situation to see the evidence. No I am NOT implying that gang members are viable mates but just using them as an example because I didn't know what other example to use. So if a woman wants to avoid the intimidation factor, Latino men appear to lack that. Again, from my experiences. I'm not saying this to put white men down but they do appear to be a bit too fearful at times. They also don't seem to go to bat for each other like black men do.

On the flip side I can certainly understand why some white men avoid black women due to being heart broken and I don't blame them. That's why as shallow as it sounds, white men interested should choose black women that actually prefer white men. Not those who are simply open to IR but prefer it. Such women are less like likely to break your heart because you are not an option but a first choice. And no, it does NOT mean that she loves you only for your color. It means that she wants love, companionship, and life with someone who looks like you.

Just playing devil's advocate, at what point should a black woman realize that she should listen to and respect that her rainbeaux might have an opinion that differs from hers? She doesn't have to agree of course. But is there a time when we have to accept that our separate experiences growing up in our respective races might lead us to different conclusions and it isn't about being racist?

This incident happened a few days before Eric Garner's death. http://m.nydailynews.com/new-york/brooklyn/nypd-officers-drag-naked-brooklyn-woman-apartment-video-article-1.1889292

But we are only now hearing about it now. There is said to be a huge march in Garner's behalf across the Verenzano Bridge this month. There was a black woman that died in police custody some months ago with very little outrage. What I find unsettling is how the amount of outrage at Foster's piece when she never said that Garner didn't deserve justice nor did she wish his family ill will. As I mentioned on FB, I've seen more outrage over Foster's piece in the black blogosphere than I have at the NYPD. While I would not have mentioned Garner, I respect that I am simply going to have to agree to disagree with many bloggers whom I have great respect. One thing we can all agree on is that the NYPD gets away with a lot of horrible things against citizens of color and increasingly white people. As outraged as some might be over Kim Foster, remember she killed or planted drugs on no one. Anybody willing to demonstrate in front of the precinct?

This anti-bw colorist sentiment is probably more common than not and I can't respect them. No, I don't look like Lupita but how dare you say she's not datable! And no, I don't care if it appears that I am doing the same.

Not surprised at all regarding Arab or Asian families but I am a bit surprised that Latino families would be more biased than black families. Whatever the case, I think that NONmuslim black women should be cautious about dating/marrying Arab/Muslim men. Every story I've read or heard suggested there was a lot of racism against blacks. No offense to others but I personally would not get involved with a muslim man.
