What did you just say?

For all those that are not aware, Mike Singletary is the current NFL head coach of the San Francisco 49ers and he was one the best Linebackers to ever play football.

Mike Singletary was the leader and focal point of the one of the greatest NFL defenses of all time, the 1985 Chicago Bears.

However, he has one flaw…he is a black man, well at least that is what his wife thinks.

In THIS Article Mike Singletary’s wife of 25 years, Kim Singletary, said something that I don’t even know how to take about how she felt when she met her husband and father to her 7 children, and I quote from the article….

“The young Baylor students forged a strong friendship. They also shared a faith in God. But Kim had never envisioned herself in an interracial relationship. She kept thinking, “I’d sure like to meet someone like him who is white.”

Say what now?!?!? Let me go back and read that again…yeah it still says the same thing. WOOOOW!!

Granted, Baylor University in Waco, Texas, is a private Baptist university and filled with mostly Caucasians but Kim, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING!?!?!

How can anyone say something like that and actual not mean anything derogatory?

I would like to give her a pass because she has been married to a black man for 25 years and has 7 children with him, but does she deserve a pass? What is your opinion of what Kim Singletary had to say?

  1. Kim was young and dumb when she made the comment. How about she didn't let Mike go did she? I know some sista's who would have been glad to have him!
