    Her fiancee’s family are Trump supporters….And he has ALWAYS come off as cruel and controlling…like the TEXT BOOK CASE FOR AN ABUSER….

    SERIOUSLY…DOES SHE NOT HAVE FAMILY MEMBERS WHO CAN STAGE AN INTERVENTION? FRIENDS…FANS…ANYBODY?!?!

    Cause I’m Whoopi Goldberg in “Ghost” regarding this…

    “Michelle…you in DANGER girl!”

    • Gigi La Moore says:

      I’m no Trump supporter but not sure what that has to do with whether he is a good partner to her. She’s really religious, do for all we know she might be a supporter too.

      • Renee2 says:

        Just guessing here but maybe because she is a Black woman and Trump, and his policies, are hella racist??? That would give me pause. Especially if they are planning on having kids together.

      • Lala11_7 says:

        Trump is a straight racist…and if you’re a Trump supporter…well…birds of a feather…Trump’s political narrative has NOTHING to do with conservative policies…yet it has EVERYTHING to do with any horrific, inhumane “ism” you can think of…

        I’m not just speaking about just THIS situation with Michelle and her man…he’s got a laundry list of issues…but you keep that same energy regarding your Trump’s stance….

        Cause I’ma keep mine also…

      • Gigi La Moore says:

        There are black Trump supporters out there, so she could very well be one. Still don’t know how his family being supporters means he is not for her. There might be plenty of other reasons why they are incompatible.

      • GreenQueen says:

        Not sure how Jesus relates to Trump. Pretty sure Jesus’s entire message/platform preaches against every single behavior/belief Trump promotes. Love thy neighbor, taking care of the poor, not judging others because they sin differently than you, etc etc. No longer can the GOP claim they are the patriotic party or family values party. That died when Trump picked golf over honoring Veterans and when he locked up innocent children.

      • CairinaCat says:

        If you are a trump supporter you support raciest views and policy. Because literally all trumps views and policy hurt someone vulnerable.

        My whole family supports trump, and I was brought up in the church and aside for a few people I know like myself who are progressive, they are all racist assh*les to some extent. They either hate LGBT people (all of them) or subtly or openly hate POC. Im in california so I hear A LOT about the caravan bs.
        I know A LOT of church people, been around scores of them all my life and 99.999 percent of them hate somebody.
        It’s so not about Jesus and his teachings, it’s about the christian pride, purity, rules ect.

        I also have family from various other states, Michigan, N. Virgina, Tenn, Texas, Arizona, Oregon all church going and trump supporters and Hey what do you know.. also racist pieces of s*it

        That to say I do not one ONE person who voted fro trump and supports him now that isn’t some kind of hateful piece of Sh*t

      • Natalia says:

        @Cairinacat
        Thank you. I could have written your exact same post myself.

    • BCity says:

      Uuuuuuuugh I thought he was awful and then…THEN his wretched family pops up. She is lovely, smart, kind, talented and really, really needs to runaway bride this sh*t pronto!

    • LadyLilith says:

      I agree Lala! Red lights are flashing. I’ve dated white men before, and I make very frank comments about my experience as a Black woman. If the guy can’t accept and respect it, he can head for the door.

      When I talk to ANY white person about race they better understand my concern is not about their feelings. I have other concerns, like the lives and safety of Black people living in this white supremacist patriarchy.

      Sorry not sorry.

      Save yourself Michelle.

  2. livealot says:

    meh. i watched the clip and i understood both their perspectives.

    • Gigi La Moore says:

      Me too and didn’t see a red flag. They may end up having a compatibility problem in the end so it’s a good thing that they are in counseling.

      • Olive says:

        being dismissive towards her real and valid concerns about race as a black woman by throwing out the “don’t care if you’re green, blue, or purple!” line is a red flag in my book

      • BCity says:

        @Olive Absolutely agree! How he feels about it is pretty much irrelevant and trying to shut down a very important conversation with a pronouncement of what a great person he believes himself to be is gross. Someone needs to tell him that not treating people differently based on race is a bare-bones requirement for being a decent human being and you don’t get a cookie for that.

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        @Olive-
        That statement of his was a big warning siren to me, and I saw a similar reaction on the part of the therapist, too- she was momentarily taken aback.

        He is utterly insensitive to her feelings. If he really loved her, he would work very hard to understand her experiences. He doesn’t, not the way she wants him to. She needs to walk away. Make that run away.

    • Sara Martin says:

      Same. I dont think he should be asking if she “took her meds”, but in the same way, I dont see how she can rationally generalize that all black people communicate in a way that he couldn’t possibly understand.

  3. velourazure says:

    She seems like she has low self esteem in addition to depression.

    • Lala11_7 says:

      Unfortunately, she has ALWAYS come off like that to me and every OTHER person I have ever spoken to regarding her…from the SECOND she stepped on stage with Destiny’s Child…I literally CRINGE at seeing her in public…because I feel SO BAD FOR HER!

      This public life…it’s just don’t seem like it’s MADE for her…

  4. Jess says:

    RUN MICHELLE RUN

  5. Gigi La Moore says:

    I’m not seeing anything based on that clip.

    • Tanesha86 says:

      Gigi I take it you aren’t a black woman based on all of your very dismissive responses…

      • Gigi La Moore says:

        You would be wrong. I am indeed black but obviously not meeting your expectations as to how a black woman should respond.

  6. AmunetMaat says:

    She has told her fans to back off. They are actually framing these responses as people hating on her relationship with a white man. People are hating because you are marrying a racist white man after stating you are pro black.

  7. María S. says:

    Red flags indeed. His inability to accept that as a White man he really won’t understand her experiences and all he can do is listen, coupled with his throwing her depression in her face, suggesting her failure to agree with him is based on her not taking her meds? That goes beyond incompatibility. Thats emotional abuse. Also it’s rich of them to invite people into their relationship with a reality show and then be shocked when people have opinions about it.

    • BB says:

      Seriously. Does she think he’s going to be more compassionate when they’re married? Because in all likelihood he’ll just get worse and be more demeaning towards her.

    • Gigi La Moore says:

      I will have to amend my previous statement and agree that throwing in the meds comment is a red flag. Good thing they are in counseling.

      • BB says:

        And towards the end he’s basically defending the fact that he said it because “she knows how to cut.” That kind of low blow in an argument is just going to be the tip of the iceberg if they get married. Couples that don’t fight well don’t last.

      • Betsy says:

        Or they last miserably.

  8. Peanutbuttr says:

    I didn’t know who that Michelle Williams was. And when I saw her fiancés name was Chad Johnson, I first thought “She’s marrying Ochocinco. ?”

  9. Betty Whoo says:

    When someone tells you who they really are, listen to them

  10. jwoolman says:

    Tucker Carlson also lied about protesters at his home. There were trained observers watching and the police confirm that the protest was completely nonviolent and nonthreatening and someone just knocked on his door. No violence to the door either… The number of protesters was also quite small, about a dozen I think. They came bearing one tambourine…

  11. Lucy says:

    Stan Lee passed away today. He was 95.

  12. Sandy says:

    Wow! He’s cold, not trying to understand her point of view, and then cutting her down using her mental illness against her to win an argument? run fast, it only gets worst. Her black experiences are different from his white experiences, he wont understand, but she still should try to explain them to him because he wants to know, if he is still insensitive to her experiences, then it can’t work . Marriage is a long term commitment, that subject is always going to come up.

  13. Lizzie says:

    listening to this male rachel dolezal tell his beautiful black fiancé he doesn’t see color is too damn much. if he doesn’t see color – why is he doing race cosplay?

    girl take my advice and run.

  14. Wilma says:

    That he asked her about taking her medication (in an argument) was a huge red flag to me. That reeks of gaslighting.
    Not seeing colour is another flag. Dude, we all see colour, we all live in a deeply racist society. Denying this is actually harmful if you want to get to a truly equal society. If you are planning to have mixed kids you better learn about the black experience from your wife to be, because that’s part of the experience your kids are going to have.

  15. Keaton says:

    He sounds like sooo many white people. They absolutely refuse to admit or simply cannot acknowledge or conceptualize that someone might have a different experience & POV due to their race, gender, sexual preference, etc. Alternatively, he gets it but he’s being dismissive of her feelings and is accusing her of using race as a way to avoid dealing with their real issues. Regardless, I agree with you: It’s a red flag. bleh

  16. Kristen says:

    Is Victoria’s Secret still relevant?

    I know they make a lot of money, but certainly not as much they once were?

  17. Ellecommelejour says:

    She is desperate for love.
    He is desperate to be a celebrity.
    They should not be on tv. She is usually a private person and seems like she is trying too hard to be happy.
    Why was a TV crew their on their engagement day?

  18. Billie says:

    My husband is greek. At the beginning of our relationship, everytime he shouted at me, he used the excuse of ‘that is how greeks act, it is normal’. For me, using a culture as a way to excuse innapropriate behaviors like screaming at your partner, it is not alright. We are also our own agent while navigating social constructs. After years at being together, our different cultures are mainly used as positive impacts in our lives and not as a shield or a sword against each other.

  19. Cate says:

    I am mixed race, my fiancé is white. It is just a non-issue. Am I somehow not ethnic enough wielding my race and branding it about lol? Maybe we are just too chill. We are happy, no intentions of having children, we travel a lot.

    If he asked me if I had taken my medication it would be out of loving concern for my well being. Michelle’s fiancé is clearly being abusive and trying to deflect. Her wanting to initiate a discussion about her black culture is on point but she is going about it in the wrong way. Him saying he doesn’t care what color she is as an attempt at acceptance is hurtful and dismissive because he is rejecting any discussion about her culture. I think they can make it work if they start communicating the same language to each other. It’s just my two cents.

  20. Gigi La Moore says:

    Um….we all see color even the most unbiased and non prejudice amongst us. I see the point you are trying to make though.

  21. meme says:

    I don’t like the whole “i’m colorblind, we don’t see color”. Really? To be colorblind is to not recognize our differences and situatedness

    Racial progress has stagnated in the best areas and regressed in the worst

    We will get no where pretending being white is the norm and “raceless” …while not recognizing and thereby erasing the different experience /perspective/plight of people of color by being “colorblind”.

    I’m sure my life would have been different had I not been born Mexican American (I would have never been called a wet back, thats for sure.). My dad is very very dark Mexican and one drunk white guy called him the n-word once because he drunkenly thought he was african american. I highly doubt my white friends have ever experienced anything like either of my examples in their life so the point is..Our race impacts our life experience and to pretend that it doesn’t is ignorant in 2018

  22. greenmonster says:

    Sorry, deleted my comment.

  23. Adee says:

    I agree that race should not be the focal point.

    However, I believe if you are dating/marrying outside your race, you should logically learn your mates culture. It’s naïve to just say we are all one. NO, as a product of a white European mom and a black African dad, there are differences and these should be discussed and not just chalked up to “everyone’s the same” there will be barriers, and that’s okay too.

  24. Killjoy says:

    Enjoy your bonus points for being the Model Minority who stays in her lane, I guess?

  25. Beach Dreams says:

    Ok then….

  26. Tanesha86 says:

    I can’t speak for you Dani but for this black woman my race definitely impacts my life experience and informs the way I see the world. He’s gaslighting her by asking if she’s taken her meds as a way to imply she’s being irrational while speaking on a very real issue. It’s dismissive, disgusting and a deflection. Colorblind racism is a problem because it literally erases a person’s identity.

  27. Patty says:

    @Dani as a black person perhaps you should refrain from using loaded terms like hick and white trash. Also are you sure black and your husband is white? How would you know if you don’t see color?

  28. Snowflake says:

    That was a really good article. Saying I dont see color is ignoring the differences that make us unique and ignoring the different experiences POC have that whites dont. For example, one of our neighbors told my black husband he does police ride alongs. Trying to let him know that if he acted up, the neighbor knew cops. I doubt he would say that to my white ass. I’ve seen some racism towards my husband and it breaks my heart for him.

    I used to say i dont see color, i guess i was trying saying i won’t treat someone differently because of their race. But i realized later that that was a naive response. Everyone sees color
