Black Man Swipes Left When White Tinder Date Says She Doesn’t Like Going to ‘Black People Places’

A British man’s Tinder date was over before it began after the woman he met on the popular dating app said she was against going to any “Black people places.”

Nicky Sowemimo, who’s Nigerian, said he couldn’t believe his eyes. It was a no-brainer that he would cancel the date with the woman, who’s white.

“If I’m honest there were a couple of questionable comments last week,” he told UK outlet Metro. “Maybe I overlooked them, and brushed them off? At the time it just wasn’t enough for me to assume the worst. I generally don’t assume the worst of people.”

Sowemimo said he and the young woman had been talking for weeks and planned to meet for their very first date at Soho Zebrano, a cocktail bar in London’s West End. Their conversation turned sour, however, when the woman said she was afraid to go in by herself, as there might be too many Black people.

She recalled an “uncomfortable” experience at Caribbean restaurant chain Rum Kitchen, saying she wouldn’t go back after being “nearly the only white person” there.

“It all just kind of came out very quickly — it went from zero to 100,” Sowemimo said, recalling the conversation.

Screenshots of their text message exchange show the young woman was seemingly unapologetic about her racist views, and didn’t see the issue.

“That’s … a strange thing to say,” Sowemino replied, dumbfounded.

“I don’t really like what you’re saying,” he added. “If you’re uncomfortable about Black people, why are we meeting?”

His date replied: “It’s cool, we don’t have to meet up then. Probably wasn’t meant to be then.”

Sowemimo said he was just steps from the bar when he abandoned the date. He’d offered to meet her inside at the bar’s rooftop patio when she objected, saying she preferred to wait for him outside because “I don’t like to go to Black people places by myself.”

Sowemimo said the comment threw him for a loop, seeing as the bar has a  majority white clientele.

“It’s not even a place that I would say is predominately frequented by black people, so that doesn’t make sense,” he told the outlet. “‘That’s actually quite a startling level of concern that you can’t actually go into this place. … You’re that scared that you can’t go into it.”

The communications director said this isn’t the first time he’s met someone who denies they’re racist because they have a friend or partner of color, but go out of their way to avoid places where they might be the minority.

“There are obviously people who date interracially but still have some quite unpleasant views,” he added.

Sowemimio’s sister, Dr. Annabel Sowemimo, chimed in on the matter, saying that such behavior “often centers on the same historic stereotypes of feeling unsafe or feeling that the space is ‘ghetto.’ ”

“It’s also not an uncommon issue that people are happy to date a black individual but want them to abandon any cultural ties at the front door,” she explained.

After their unpleasant exchange, Sowemimo washed his hands of the incident by blocking the woman on Tinder and WhatsApp — which only seemed to anger her. In fact, she doubled-down on her bigotry.

“I think it’s very rude just to block someone when travelling 1.5 hour, but it’s okay. I wish u all the best,” she messaged him, before adding: “Probably one of the reasons to stay away from Nigerians.

“You’re just on a different level,” she concluded.

‘The Whole Snack and Now a Whole Meal’: Jackie Christie’s Throwback Post Sizzles

Basketball Wives” star Jackie Christie just shared a series of throwback photos that had fans raving over her appearance.

Christie turned Wednesday, July 16, into a Wayback Wednesday when she posted several sexy photos of herself from back in the day to Instagram.

“ALL His…. #TB Swipe 👉🏻👉🏻 Raw & Rough ~lil Jackie! #loveyourbody! Flaws & all! ♥️ #nofilter;/ 🥂Picture book surfing 🏄‍♀️ while Moving!!! 🔥🔥 👉🏻👉🏻#BASKETBALLWIVES Tonight at 8 pm ET on #VH1,” she said while shouting out her husband of 22 years Doug Christie and promoting her reality show.

Among the images are a topless photo where Jackie covered her breasts with her arm, a chill Jackie sitting back in a chair and posing in a silk-looking leopard print set with her pierced belly exposed, and a pregnant Jackie standing shirtless in a yard wearing a pink bra and what looked to be a cover-up tied around her waist.

The images made for lots of gleeful responses from fans and Jackie’s co-stars alike.

“A whole snack and now a meal”

“Yaaaaaas boss lady 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥”

“🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 the one with the silk leopard print you look like you are part tlc, creep video……”

“Always been fine 😍😍😍”

“You better work it Mrs. Christie!!!! Yassssss!!! Beautiful!!! Gorgeous!!!”

“Ok come thru ❤️” Jennifer Williams said.

Meanwhile, Cece Gutierrez simply left a host of fire emoji: “🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥.”

Jackie typically keeps her Instagram comments section turned off, but she has been known to open them up for certain occasions.

One recent moment came at the start of July when she gave fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse at her fashion as she continued to film “Basketball Wives.”

“♠️ #basketballwives episode 1 #BTS SWIPE 👉🏻👉🏻1,2,3 4🎥 catch us every Weds at 8 pm /ET on @Vh1” she wrote in the caption, where she also shared the details of what she wore for the day’s shoot.

Fans eagerly chimed in, with one hoping for the best for Jackie this season.

“@jackiechristie i hope you dont fight with anyone this season! You a boss!” a fan stated.

“@ianbelize awe thank you🙏😍 disclosure this season is a doozie,” Jackie said in response.

A month prior, however, one fan wasn’t quite so delighted by Jackie opening up the comments on her post about her Jamaican getaway with her ex-NBA player spouse.

“Oh now it’s okay for us to comment. 🙄,” they said in an apparent shady manner.

Jackie set the fan straight by responding, “@sugah_browne hey Love it’s always ok on certain social media of mine key word mine babes I Choose when I want to turn my comments on or off as with your page too but my dms are open feel free to comment there or on my snap or twitter or Facebook 🧡🥃.”

‘I Was In a Bubble:’ Eve Gets Candid About Her Struggles As a Female Rapper, Readies New Album

Some may have gotten familiar with Eve as a co-host on CBS’ “The Talk,” but hip-hop fans and even casual music listeners probably think of her as the rapper from Ruff Ryders Entertainment.

The last album Eve released was 2013’s “Lip Lock,” and now she’s back with a new album, her fifth, which she talked about in a recent interview with the Guardian. Earlier this month, Eve dropped the first single “Reload,” featuring dancehall artist Konshens.

During the interview, Eve talked about her start in the rap game and how she entered it somewhat naive. The 40-year-old said at the time, she believed there would be a oneness between herself and other female rappers in the industry but that wasn’t the case.

“Before I’d met anybody, I always thought of it as this sisterhood,” she stated. “I thought we were all gonna be friends. It was not like that. I’d see [Lil’] Kim and say hi, and she’d be like: ‘Get the f–k away from me.’ Not verbally, you could just tell what she was thinking. But I was in a bubble and it never felt like a competition. I loved Missy [Elliott] and Kim but I never wanted to be them.”

But Eve said these days, she’s far less concerned with what people think of her and now just wants to make music that empowers women.

The Philly native does have some uneasiness regarding the new project, however, because rap and music in general has shifted dramatically since 2013.

Not to mention, Eve’s last album didn’t do well on the charts.

“Sometimes, I’m apprehensive because the industry has changed so much,” she explained. “What does that mean for an artist from the time I come from. Are people going to care?”

“[After ‘Lip Lock’] I kind of retreated,” added Eve. “I had to really pick myself back up. [But now] it’s the right time. I’m trying to give people a feeling. Because the music I listen to when I’m getting ready to go out, when I’m getting dressed or when I’m driving, it lifts my mood. I want people to feel good.”

Meghan McCain Finds Way to Make Omar’s ‘Send Her Back’ Incident About Herself and Gets Appropriately Dragged for It

Meghan McCain angered critics Thursday when she complained that President Donald Trump‘s racist attacks against Rep. Ilhan Omar were taking away her ability to criticize the Muslim congresswoman herself.

The resident conservative “The View” co-host decried Trump’s latest screed against Omar as “really dystopian,” recalling how the president urged the Somali immigrant and three other congresswomen of color to “go back” where they came from.

On Wednesday, Trump continued his attacks against Omar at a raucous campaign rally in North Carolina, where his supporters broke into a chant of “send her back!” The next day McCain, 34, said the racist spectacle was enough to sour her night out with relatives.

“I was trying to go out to dinner and ignore politics,” she told her co-hosts. “My family is in town, and came home and saw it on Twitter and then saw it on TV, and look.”

The Fox News alum slammed the president’s remarks against Omar — but not for their sheer racism.

“Everyone at this table, [and] I think, people that watch this show, or have ever seen the dumpster fire of my interview with Seth Meyers know that I have been one of Ilhan Omar’s most vocal critics regarding Israel, regarding some of her comments I and others interpreted as anti-Semitic,” McCain said. “But the problem right now is you’re taking away my agency to criticize her policy.”

“You’re making this about race, xenophobia, racism,” she added. “I think anytime you’re hitting in a territory where you’re telling any American citizen of a different color than you, to send them back, I too didn’t think this is something I would see in my country, especially going into 2020.”

It was only a matter of time before social media critics nailed McCain to the wall for managing to making the situation about herself, a habit she’s been criticized for in the past.

“Meghan is as narcissistic and incapable of self-reflection as Trump,” one Twitter user wrote.

Never underestimate @MeghanMcCain‘s ability to always make herself into a victim,” another chimed  in.

One critic joked: “Meghan McCain could teach an entire course in white womaning. No one white womans the way Meghan McCain white womans.”

As the outrage grew, McCain took to Twitter to issue an apology and clarify her comments.

“I am sorry,” she wrote. “I was trying to say Trump’s racist tweets and the horrific chanting prevent us from arguing about critical policy issues. It’s my fault for using language that has led people to feel frustrated. I would like to strive for more productive conversations all around.”

‘Damn I Can’t Have Fun?’: Tommie Lee Fires Back at Fan Who Accuses Her of Sobriety Relapse

It looks former “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Tommie Lee isn’t here for anyone questioning her ability to stay sober.

The television personality is currently on probation due to her recent child abuse case and must abstain from any substances such as drugs and alcohol. She has however been seen partying it up, but assures she’s been sober while doing so.

Lee took to her Instagram on Tuesday and posted a video of herself in a hotel room, making it rain. She began throwing money all over herself and wildly dancing all over the room in her bathrobe.

“I know some real ones they just love Ta see me flex 💪🏾 #tommieshit🤦🏿‍♀️😂,” she wrote in her caption.

One fan along with many others felt Lee’s behavior was a little erratic and questioned if she’d relapsed.

“Oh she drinking again 😭,” the fan commented underneath the celeb’s post.

Lee clapped backed at the detractor, writing, “Damn I can’t have fun without drinking 😕 do you see a drink? 4 months sober for inquiring minds.”

Fans commended Lee on her sobriety while trashing others who bashed the mother of two.

“Super proud of you G 💪. Don’t let these negative a– people get to you.”

“Go Tommie! Big yourself up ❤️ people will say anything to bring you down smh.”

“Keep on striving. Don’t let these haters block your shine🤳 love this woman.”

“Congrats on ur sobriety boo. You are a Queen. Stay Humble ❤️!”

It’s no secret that Lee has struggled with excessive drinking, admitting as much on “LHHATL” and saying alcohol helps her cope with the stresses in her life. To that end, her recent court appearance for her child abuse case is allegedly what triggered her to fall off the wagon.

“I’ve been working really hard through my problems considering the challenges that’s been set before me since I’ve been home,” said a message from the mother of two on Instagram March 21, apologizing to fans for her arrest in March for showing up to court intoxicated amid her child abuse case. “I’ve done all that I can do on my own to shake my habits but I do realize that I need help and I am currently seeking treatment.”

As part of her probation sentence, Lee is required to complete a recovery program and spend nearly a year in aftercare with licensed professionals.

While Kalysha received mainly favorable comments from fans, not everyone was here for her showing off her goods in the risque photos. Some commentators even speculated that Kalysha had undergone surgery to enhance her backside.

“No more surgery.”

“This ain’t it sika.”

“Your body is so botched. you should’ve loved yourself enough to no get surgery smh.”

‘That Shape Sis’: Keyshia Ka’Oir Leaves Fans Dazzled With Her Coke Bottle Figure

Gucci Mane‘s wife Keyshia Ka’Oir and her curvy appearance seem to be a hot topic on social media.

It’s no secret the “Wopsters” like to look good at all times in their designer drip and stay in shape. Ka’Oir in particular goes hard in the gym with her waist trainer on to maintain a narrow waistline and flat stomach. Her curves, however, are very much present and draw a lot of attention from fans.

The Ka’Oir Cosmetics owner took to Instagram Tuesday evening and shared a photo of herself from backstage at Gucci’s Las Vegas concert from earlier this week. She was draped in all-black Chanel attire from head to toe and rocking her new blond ’do and glammed makeup. She posed against a wall with her hand on her hip and wrote in her caption, “Before the turn up 🌟.”

Keyshia Ka'Oir

Several online observers pointed out the celeb’s petite waist compared to the rest of her lower body, such as her hips and derriere.

“That shape sis is to die for! 🤤 you stay killen the game and on 100 😘.”

“Whew kill us with the body 🔥🔥 u the real Barbie bae 😍 fabulous as always.”

“You got a body of a goddes and I love it 😍 Gucci one lucky man.”

“🔥🔥 Queen! to quote the city girls ‘he want a cutie with a booty who make me feel like keyshia did.”

The 34-year-old serial entrepreneur admits to being a fitness guru and currently owns athleisure line Ka’Oir Fitness, which was launched in 2011. Her desire to live a healthier lifestyle played a major role in her husband Gucci Mane’s dramatic weight loss when he emerged from prison in 2016. The rapper initially lost 50 pounds with a strict no-carb diet and workout routine and has since lost a total of 100 pounds.

“There were days that he would cheat, and then I’m like, ‘You can’t cheat: You’re not like that!’” Ka’Oir told Fader in 2017 about her husband’s weight loss journey.

Gucci also told Revolt a few years ago that it was crucial for him to change his overall health and lifestyle.

“I was drinking pints of lean a week and smoking pounds of weed and just doing all kinds of drugs,” he said. “The whole way I was handling myself before I went to jail was just so negative, [and] it showed in my body.”

Report: ‘Love & Hip-Hop’s’ Mendeecees Harris To Be Out of Prison in Late 2020

Yandy Smith is probably already planning a welcome home party for her husband Mendeecees Harris, because he’ll be released in November 2020, according to Bossip.

In 2015 Harris was sentenced to 8 to 10 years in prison after he admitted in a plea deal that he shipped cocaine and heroin from New York City to Rochester, N.Y. between the years of 2006 and 2008. He began serving his prison term in January of 2016 and was already credited with serving 15 months.

During the sentencing, the “Love & Hip-Hop” star said he apologized “for any trouble” he’s “caused the city of Rochester” and told a U.S. district judge that growing up without a father, plus, being raised in a cutthroat kind of neighborhood led him astray.

His four kids, however, including the two he has with Smith, made him reevaluate things and he plans to do better. “Ever since [becoming a father], I’ve been trying to right my wrongs,” he stated.

Harris tried to get his sentence shortened in 2017, because he said it was given to him under old sentencing guidelines and his lawyer failed to appeal.

Before that in 2016, Harris asked the courts to lower his sentence by three years, because the Harlem native said he’d be more useful on the outside talking to kids about avoiding street life and drug dealing.

If the 40-year-old is freed in November of next year, it would mean he would’ve served a little more than half of his sentence. Harris was first locked up in Pennsylvania but was later moved to a medium-security prison in New Jersey.

Court papers state that he’s already completed a parenting class behind bars, took a health and nutrition course, public speaking, money management and a substance abuse prevention class.

‘F—ked Up Feet’: Angela Simmons’ Fashion Blues Post Flops Over Her ‘Bumpy Toes’

Angela Simmons, the daughter of legendary MC Rev. Run of Run-D.M.C., found herself in the middle of dissension when folks judged her apparent flawed feet.

The “Growing Up Hip Hop” star’s beauty is clearly undeniable, but folks apparently have an issues with other parts of her appearance. Wednesday afternoon, the mother of one took to Instagram and posted a fashion post of herself sporting a blue, form-fitting tunic dress complemented with a pair of tan, open-toe kitten heels.

Her blue diamond-and-heart-captioned post received over 39,000 likes, but some fans in the comments seemed mortified after zooming in on Simmons’ “busted” feet.

“Damn ma you lookin good but what’s going on with them feet 🧐😕.”

“You and Ciara have the most f–ked up busted feet n the game whew chile da toes 😒.”

“She needs to wear her shoe size with all them bumps on her toes. . poor thing makes too much money to have bumpy toes 😫.”

Although Simmons hasn’t responded to the apparent social media foot police, she’s been vocal in the past about not caring about what others think of her appearance. One of her most recent posts from June where she put her semi-naked body on display, read, “UNAPOLOGETIC #NotLookingForYourOpinions #BNB.”

She also wanted to help other women feel the same way and launched social campaign Pressure Makes Diamonds last September. The campaign was founded on helping teenagers and millennial women overcome low confidence and self-esteem.

The whole idea of this campaign and the mission just came from [my] life and the pressures that I’ve been through,” she told Black Enterprise, referring to her teenage struggles with body image issues. She said the goal of the campaign is to promote healthier living, mentally, physically and emotionally.
