Does Reggie Exemplify Black Love?

Essence Magazine has selected Reggie Bush to grace their cover of the love & relationships issue on february.  Of course sex sells, and from looking at this chocolate piece of work, who wouldnt want to pass him up on the magazine stand.  But just recently there has been alot of backlash about Reggie Bush being the perfect face of the cover of a “Black Love” issue.  With his girlfiend, Kim Kardasian being non-black it makes me wonder how he can be an example of “Black Love”?   It was his choice to not date a black woman, so it should not be fair out of all of the many successful black men for Reggie Bush to take the spotlight.  I feel that Bush doesn’t publicly show his love for his own race and black women at that so why should he be on the cover.  He looks good, but that’s about it.

    i AGREE. I’M NOT MAD AT REGGIE FOR HIS CHOICE, BECAUSE WE LOVE WHO WE LOVE, AND SOMETIMES LOVE JUST HAPPENS. HOWEVER, HE DEFINITELY DOESN’T NEED A COVER EXEMPLIFYING BLACK LOVE. LET’S NOT FORGET, THOUGH, THAT ESSENCE IS NO LONGER BLACK-OWNED, SO THE FINAL DECISION FOR A LOT OF WHAT APPEARS IN IT’S PAGES MAY NO LONGER REALLY BE FROM A BLACK PERSPECTIVE.

    I think he’s on the cover because he’s on their list of 10 Sexiest Blk Men. And he is definitely that. SEXY! I thought about Kim when I saw it, but then i noticed that he was at the top of their list. What irks me is that its a RECYCLED photo. At least a yr or more old.
