John Mayer Playboy Interview

leave a comment »

What can I say about it other than HE MADE A MISTAKE! I’m trying hard to not be biased on this topic, he IS my favorite musician and ultimate crush and yes, I was heartbroken after the ‘white supremacist’ genitalia comment but reading the interview as many times as I have I know what I’m thinking when I say JOHN MAYER IS NOT A RACIST! It was clearly stated when he says “I’ve got a Benetton heart and a fuckin’ David Duke cock. I’m going to start dating separately from my dick.” Most people don’t even think about venturing outside of their own race when it comes to finding a partner, no one likes to talk about it out of fear of sounding racist, (ironically) but they think about it surely. I would not be surprised if my first boyfriend or any boyfriend I have in the future was black, or if all of my future boyfriends were black! Not that I am not attracted to men outside of my race obviously, (hello JM fainting fangirl) but humans are just comfortable staying within familiar boundaries. And to point John was in his total joke mode where anything flies out of his mouth to get a laugh and make him seem completely laid back and cool. He obviously wasn’t paying attention to his mouth  – although, it would have done him some good if he had – and his further comments regarding the ‘n-word’ and of such topic is hardly relevant to me. Part of me does it’s best to ignore all racial references because I want to live in a society where it doesn’t matter. Not to say anyone can intentionally insult anyone’s ethnicity, it isn’t moral, but to pay such close attention to someone who has owned up to their mistake is just aggravating the issue. People who think any comment is acceptable because it is a ‘free country’, (psh where are you living?) and the people who think it’s ok to talk about your own race and not anyone else will only get upset and attack each other until we’re all engaged in battle and later on…dead. My point is this, let’s stop paying attention to the small stuff it’s NOT stopping racism. There are hate crimes occurring all over the country, the KKK and countless other hate groups still exist. Please, it’s one of my main goals, let’s focus on these issues if we still want to discuss racism. After those major threats are gone then we can attack foot-in-mouth celebs like my dear John.
