Singer/songwriter John Mayer had a bad week after the release of a Playboy Interview in which he said some, well, interesting things about himself, and ended up making some racially insensitive comments.Â I won't repeat them here - you can find them by clicking the link for full Playboy interview text below.
I'll just say (again) that I don't think John Mayer is a racist at all.Â I think he was trying too hard to be witty, and forgot he didn't actually have a "hood pass," just as he was talking about it.Â As for the comment about black women, I don't think he meant to denigrate anyone - he showed a bit of honesty by saying that he's not sexually attracted to black women, and there's nothing wrong with that.Â I would think most people are probably more easily attracted to members of their own race, but that's doesn't make them malicious hate-mongers.
But, I do think he's kind of a douche, nonetheless.
