Many are coming down on Eve after she spoke about race on a recent episode of TV One's Uncensored.
Eve has been married to Maximillion Cooper, a white businessman from the UK, since 2014 and she said their race no longer crosses her mind.
“I don’t think about our race. I don’t," said Eve. "When we first got together, yeah, of course. I had never been with a white guy seriously like that. So yeah, I definitely thought about it, but we are so honest with each other that we have discussions, and that’s a beautiful thing. With my [four] stepchildren, we have discussions. We talk about race, especially in America. The things that go one here. "
Some thought Eve was saying that black people don't cross her mind since she's married to Maximillion, while others didn't have a problem with what she said.
That’s the problem. She doesn’t think about race...she prolly says “I don’t see color” too. She definitely vacations with Barkley & Shaq. I’m sure she doesn’t get mistaken for his assistant because of PDA..GTFOH Eve!! https://t.co/2HqsTl91nH pic.twitter.com/Je9aQ9dQU4— David R. Wilson (@ramardavid) September 28, 2020
Good for her. Society expects black women to be lifelong race warriors until they’re broken down and burnt out. Eve is instead happy, relaxed and living her best life with a wealthy man who loves her https://t.co/LPyRpq6mVZ— cerium (@ceriuz_) September 26, 2020
