Interracial dating is still taboo in hollywood if you are a young white starlet. Understood rule 101 for white Hollywood starlets is NEVER OPENLY DATE A BLACK GUY, because its career suicide. Think about it, when have you ever seen an A-list white girl openly date a black man?Never because it doesn’t happen. Do you really think throughout the history of Hollywood that not one of them has been attracted to a black guy? The real reason is that their handlers/managers/PR people told them this understood rule of the business. Imagine the uproar if America’s sweethearts like Miley Cyrus or Scarlett Johansson were openly dating a black guy, showing up hand in hand with them at red carpet events.
So the questions is why? Well if you are a young white starlet then your fan base is likely millions of white teenage girls. These girls idolize these stars, and for better or worse, try to emulate everything they do. So if they were to be dating a black guy, these girls would think its ok too. Unfortunately for many of these girls parents,even the most liberal of them, the last thing they want is their daughters bringing home black guys. That means they will not approve of their daughters idolizing any starlet that does. So no money to buy the idols music,movies,or go to their concerts. Therefor, it really is bad business for the starlet to date a black guy.
Take for example Amanda Bynes, a very young & talented actress/comedian. She was on the verge of Miley Cyrus like super-stardom. Unfortunately for her she quit acting, stating burn out and fed up with Hollywood. It didnt help that she started dating rapper Kid Kudi and even openly confess her love for “chocolate” men via tweeter. Now she doesn’t do any film work these days and even just announced her retirement from Hollywood. Now some will say its because her previous last films didnt do well, but I tend to believe her dating life’s choices didnt do her any favors. However, I will end on this note. There is one A lister that is the exception to this rule and that is none other than Kim Kardashian, but I will address why on an up and coming post.
