According to numerous gossip columnists, the gorgeous Kim Kardashian is dating NFL football player Miles Austin. Twenty six year old Austin plays for the Dallas Cowboys. Kim Kardashian (three years older than Austin) met him in a restaurant a few months ago and they’ve been fascinated with each other ever since. Kim recently got out of a relationship with another NFL football player, Reggie Bush. Meanwhile, Kim’s sister Khloe Kardashian is currently married to Lamar Odom, who plays NBA basketball for the LA Lakers. The Kardashian girls certainly seem to like African American ball players. Wonder why?
Several commentators have said the Kim and Khloe Kardashian’s attraction to African American ball players might have something to do with their late father, attorney Robert Kardashian. He was close friends with O.J. Simpson and even helped defend Simpson when he was accused of murdering his wife, Nicole Simpson and Ronald Goldman. O.J. Simpson also stayed at the Kardashian house for several nights after the couple was murdered. With both Kim and Khloe still living at home at the time, there was obviously a fair amount of interaction with O.J. Simpson, one of America’s most famous ball players.
In some respects, maybe being in relationships with black ball players remind the Kardashian girls of their father and how close they both were with him?
Whatever the reason, their affinity for African America ball players has already brought some unwanted negative press. While Kim Kardashian was dating Reggie Bush, Bush was featured on the cover of Essence magazine to illustrate an inside article “Black Men, Love & Relationships”. After the article was published, Reggie Bush and Kim Kardashian were the recipients of some controversy and hate comments as some black women didn’t like that Bush was dating Kardashian, as she’s not black. Because of this, they didn’t feel Reggie Bush had the right to be on the cover of Essence magazine if he wasn’t in a relationship with a black woman.
Khloe Kardashian has also had her fair share of gossip due to her marriage to Lamar Odom. Just yesterday, when it was announced she had bought Odom a $400,000 Rolls Royce to celebrate his NBA Championship win, nasty comments flew all over the internet accusing Khloe of buying the Rolls Royce with Odom’s own money.
It’s a pity that both Kim and Khloe Kardshian are getting so many negative comments and so much hatred directed at them simply because of who they choose to love. Both girls, just like anyone else, should be allowed to date whoever they want, ball player or not and regardless of their skin color, without half the planet having an opinion about it.
