To clarify, I have dated black guys in the past, but just like anybody, we all have a preference. And, it is a preference, it was a comment. It was not meant to be derogatory. I’m a black woman, I think everyone is beautiful in their own way. I know people had something to say about ‘oh is that self-hatred?’ or hate towards your culture?

At the end of the day, if we all talk the same, walk the same and look the same, the world would be a boring place. Again, it is about a preference, that’s what I prefer. Who knows, in two or three years, you may see me with a black man, that’s who I married, or a Hispanic or Middle Eastern. At the end of the day, looks are skin deep and what I might think is beautiful might be different than what you think. I think we all bring something unique to the table and at the end of the day if I vibe with someone, I vibe with them. It doesn’t matter where they come from or what their background is.

Does Cameron think she was unfairly criticized?

Yes! I did not expect this; I got called a racist, and I am far from racist. I have so many different groups of people I roll with, I love everybody. I actually love meeting different people because it makes you learn something different, something I may have never known because you come from a different background. So, for me just to make a comment saying I have a preference and realizing it’d be such a crazy thing… a lot of people were mad about the whole ‘vanilla and chocolate babies’ All babies are beautiful, but if I were to marry a white man, my children would be biracial. At the end of the day, any child I have I think they’re beautiful, no matter what skin complexion or what color they are.
