Lisa Raye Wonders Why The Term 'Gold Digger' is Only Attached To Black Women

By Daryl Nelson

The term "Gold Digger" has been broken down by rappers from EPMD to Kanye West.  It means someone, usually a woman, who seeks out a mate for their money and nothing else. 

The actress Lisa Raye spoke on the topic and said it's a word that's only attached to black women.

"Let's define what a real gold digger is," she said. "Because that's pissing me off. It only happens to [black women]. You better teach your little girl to go after somebody that got something. And make sure when she brings something to the table that he has something to bring to the table as well. Because I bought the table."

What do you think about Lisa's words? Is the term gold digger only attached to black women?

And should women base their interest in men on what they can bring to the table financially or should it be about love and a genuine connection?  You can see her speak on the topic in the two videos below.
