Gilbert Arenas doesn’t seem to like Black women…or at least, dark-skinned. Black women…”like Tyrese black.” His words, not ours.
Arenas ranted his foolishness via a recent Instagram comment. When one user posted an image reading, “Dear Black Girl, You don’t have to be mixed to be beautiful,” Arenas responded with a dose of colorism and anti-Blackness. “Not to be funny can u name a beautiful black women on the outside…not brown skin…like tyrese black.” He then seemed to reference a 50 most beautiful women list where Keshia Knight Pulliam, Gabrielle Union, Taral Hicks, and Serena Williams were the darkest women listed.
