'I Couldn't Tell You the Last Time I Dated a Black Girl'

Gonna concur with DCentric on this one--Oh my:


Washington Redskins player Albert Haynesworth has been indicted on one charge of sexual abuse after a Feb. 13 incident at the W Hotel, in which he allegedly fondled a cocktail waitress' breast. According to the indictment, Haynesworth told a security guard, "I didn't touch her" and that the waitress was "a little black girl" and he "doesn't even like black girls." Later, according to the indictment, Hanyesworth told detectives "I know what this is about, she is just upset I have a white girlfriend. I couldn't tell you the last time I dated a black girl. She was trying to get with me."

Damn right. When I was a contributing editor, ain't no black girls want me. Now that I'm all senior editor up in this piece, they be going for my dollars Liz Lemon!

What? I'm just sayin,..
