Society doesn’t teach Black boys to appreciate Black girls, and Sherri Shepherd has learned the hard way that her son isn’t immune to that messaging.
In a recent sit down with The Breakfast Club, Shepherd admitted her 13-year-old son Jeffrey doesn’t like Black girls because they are “mean.”
According to the former The View host, her son goes to a predominately white school, and his interactions with the few Black girls who go there apparently have not been great.
“I am going through this thing, he likes these girls,” she said. “Because he came in and he said, ‘Mommy, I like white girls.”
She adds: “The little Black girls get mean with him.”
The Black girls in his class allegedly “don’t wanna speak” and “sometimes they act crazy,” which has been confusing to Jeffrey, said Shepherd. Her son was particularly taken aback by one Black girl who “moved her neck” when she talked to him.
“And he’s like, ‘Why they act so crazy?’” Shepherd continues. “And I’m like, ‘I don’t know. So, I keep trying to tell the little girls to be nicer so he can come towards you. But the other girls see him and they go, ‘Hey, Jeffrey’ and they wanna feel his hair…”
