We believe you love who you love and if its Interacial or the same sex so be it. We all live one life, so be happy and live it to the fullest with who you love and who loves you back!
Clippers fans are NOT buying Patrick Patterson Apology!
We live by that motto, but apparently many people disagree with our views. The Los Angeles Clippers’ Patrick Patterson believes in loving who he loves and he was judged for it.
Patrick Patterson was FORCED to issue an apology after many said he referred to all Black women as “bulldogs.” The exchange between Patterson and the Instagram user occurred weeks ago but it picked up steam in recent days.
The Controversy started in October:
See, back on Oct. 26, Patrick Patterson is when the controversy started after a person said that Patterson wouldn’t have met Nasser, who’s white, if he didn’t play for the NBA.
The follower wrote:
You grew up loving our women. Why wait till you get some real money for your perspective and even if you wasn’t in the NBA worked at a Walmart in Toronto, you wouldn’t stand a chance … You just became another statistic. I bet she’s the only one in her family history to date a black. Stay woke my guy.
So I should settle for a bulldog and act like I’m happy with my life and preach ‘keep it in your race’ to the world as if Dr. King didn’t fight/die for equality, acceptance, all cultures loving one another, and no hate? No thanks. That maybe your life but I don’t want that for mine or for my family. Color doesn’t matter. Wake up.
From there, many accused the NBA player of hating his own race, as well as Black women.
Patterson wrote in the caption of his Instagram post:
My sincere apology to the individual and his family for the cruel comments we exchanged on that day long ago.
And to be clear, in his apology, the 30-year-old said his “bulldog” comment had to do with trying to insult the wife of the person who criticized him, not all Black women.
He wrote in his apology:
I want to address my use of the word “bulldog” during a conversation with someone who I felt was making a disrespectful remark about my wife and our relationship. I responded with the same, making a cruel comment on his wife’s physical stature.
Patterson went on:
I know that two wrongs don’t make a right, but I let my emotions get the better of me in the heat of the moment. For that, I apologize to him, his wife, and the rest of his family for the hurtful and crude comments made on that day.
Patrick clearly stated that he was NOT hating his own race:
As I did in the rest of the conversation thread multiple times, I will clarify again that I was not using the term as a reference to black women. That is not at all how I feel, but I do not need to justify to the world that I love my black people. I have no animosity or bitterness towards any race. I believe in love and equality.
Unfortunately, he triggered many followers:
One follower replied:
I’m not accepting this statement, sir. You called that man’s WIFE a ‘Bulldog’ because she was BLACK. Period … You got triggered because you couldn’t tell him an answer that would actually make sense.
Naw you meant what you said BLACK MAN. Stand by your words.
Try again with that apology. But this time address it to your mother, her mother and the generations of black women who came before them.
Patrick Patterson would have been better off saying nothing! Haters will always judge and hate!
This is the post that caused all the backlash.
