Yesterday morning I was listening to Cleveland radio and as usual, the morning personalities were updating their listeners about the latest celebrity drama and gossip. I rarely listen to the radio but for whatever reason, I was tuned in and heard them reporting on yet another NFL player who has dogged Black women.
Albert Haynesworth, a Washington Redskins player, was at the W hotel in DC back in February for a friend’s birthday party when he was accused of sexual assualt. There was a young Black woman who is a full time college student getting her hustle on as a cocktail waitress in the VIP section. Although there are conflicting reports, overall it appears that her hands were full yet Haynesworth was adamant about her taking his credit card right then. Apparently she nodded her head to signify that it would be okay for him to put the card in her shirt but he took it a step further by swiping his card between her breasts before fondling them. She told him to stop. The prosecutor has offered Haynesworth a plea deal that he and his lawyers aren’t accepting. They have opted to take this case to trial.
The story gets crazy however when Haynesworth was asked about his views regarding the entire debacle. His thoughts regarding “the little Black girl?” <— Haynesworth’s chosen vocabulary to refer to the college-educated woman who served him
“I don’t even like Black girls.”
Smh. How about I despise little Black boys like Haynesworth? Ugh, he disgusts me.
Speak on it.
