Patrick Patterson is on the hot seat after his comments sent social media into a frenzy.
The Los Angeles Clippers star seemingly called black women bulldogs in a 2018 Instagram post where he gushed about his longtime love Sarah Nasser.
He got defensive in the comment section when an individual allegedly asked him why so many athletes married white women. He wrote, “So I should settle for a bulldog and act like I’m happy with my life and preach ‘keep it in your race’ to the world as if Dr. King didn’t fight/die for equality, acceptance, all cultures loving one another, and no hate?”
“No thanks,” continued the 30-year-old basketball player. “That maybe your life but I don’t want that for mine or my family. Color doesn’t matter. Wake up.”
Social media wasn’t feeling this.
Patrick Patterson look like one of "those" types. I ain't surprised.
