"I don't know why I like pizza and pasta, but I know I love black women."
As the saying goes, behind every successful man is a woman doing all the work, so this week I wanted to focus on the beauty of men recognizing the women in their lives who have made them successful.
This week I, along with 6,499 other women, attended the 6th Annual Massachusetts Conference for Women, held in Boston. During the luncheon we received a surprise visit by Governor Deval Patrick, who gave a surprise introduction for one of the keynote speakers, his wife, Diane. On her way to the podium they even sealed his remarks with a kiss! I had to put down my Blackberry and call out to the stage like: "Okay! Okay! Get it! Keep that fire burning!"
So in light of this week's theme I found it apropos to include this excerpt from Robin Thicke's interview on The Monique Show earlier this year, reaffirming his love of black women (oh yeah, and his wife Paula Patton). My husband didn't realize Robin Thicke was white until a couple of months ago. Looks like he's not the only one!
