Video Review of 8 Reasons to Date a White Man 
(Apologies if you tried to watch the videos earlier. I accidentally set them as private instead of unlisted. They should be working now.) 

I(Tia) need to start this post by saying iMovie is the devil. Usually most things "I" are simple and easy. Not iMovie. It took me FOR-EV-ER just to edit out 27 seconds of the first video because Youtube does not play about that 15 minute time rule. Due to the difficulty, part one ends abruptly. But I'll let you know that you didn't miss anything. It was about 10 more seconds of me trying to figure out how to not give away too many identifiers about the guy that I was describing and then us realizing that we'd gone over 15 minutes.

So here are the videos and we are in our most, shall we say, organic forms. And as always, we'd love to hear what you think of the video and/or the topic at hand.

Here's the link to the original article.

Side note from Toya: I must say that in Part 2 at 7:31 until the end has got to be in the top 3 of Tia and Toya Shenanigans and Tomfoolery Moments of ALL TIME! Definitely a must see.

Ms☆Go said...

I was tweeted your blog. And having seen this, I wanna be friends!

Stereotypes and generalizations.


Not cool.

Keep dismissing foolishness with truth and light humor, ladies.

White boys are uber entitled. They think the whole world ought to be handed them on a silver platter. Preferably by pretty, smiling women and/or mother-figures.

:dead: This made my Sunday night!

Thanks so much everyone!!! I have to say that my favorite part is Tia laughing during the last part. OMG I had no idea we both would be so tickled off of point #8. Thanks for commenting yall.

Joanna said...

I don't even know where to begin with this... as a white woman, I stand beside you whole heartedly ladies. Unworthy men come in all shapes, sizes, and races (if that's hard for you to believe then you're obviously not a part of civilization.)

I mean... I just... Let me think on this and come back to you with a better response. This is just dumb.

Toya and Tia,

Look, don't get mad cause we're so desirable. This article is SPOT ON! You're just mad cause it's true!

I'm playing, y'all! But you gotta at least show some love to your favorite couple...who happen to be a BF/WM couple. :)

Meredith said...

Oh . . . my . . . word! I love this post, but probably (mostly?) because I miss you two SO MUCH!!!!!

So one of the assistant deans here at work is a black man with a PhD in accounting. And that's just ONE of the highly intelligent "non-white" gentlemen here. There are MEN of every ethnic background here and all highly educated.

I'm sorry, but wasn't the millionaire matchmaker chick JUST on Nate Berkus talking about what NOT to say to MEN on a date because they might have their male ego bruised? Less insecure my you-know-what.

That woman needs to get out more.

Ya'll know you need to add Closed Caption so I can sneak a peak whilst working :)

Danielle said...

I'm so glad ya'll made another video! I'm still laughing as I check out the article.

Christine said...

When I first saw the caption, I thought this was going to be a controversial article for the right reasons. Then there was a moment halfway through the article that I thought, "wait...somethin' aint right..." Immediately after that, I realized that I would not be watching a commentary, but a reaction video to a hot mess. And that made me happy.

You both are too cute! LOL'd all the way thru!

Anne Marie said...
