Actors dating black women
For instance, in 2013, Ok Cupid removed users’ profile photos for one day, dubbing it “Love is Blind Day.” People couldn’t tell who was, well, what.They complained bitterly, as OKCupid co-founder and president Christian Rudder chronicled in his book, “Dataclysm.” When the profile pictures returned, many conversations and interactions that had budded in the photos’ absence–and which Ok Cupid found to be qualitatively better than usual–fizzled.Robert De Niro and Grace Hightower were married in 1997.The following year, in 1998, the two had a son named Elliot.A while back, we did a story on white male celebrities that enjoy courting black women.
That allegedly didn’t sit too well with Iron Mike, but it doesn’t matter because the fling didn’t last very long.
If you look at many black men in Hollywood, sports, music or hell, just the black men in the world around you, you’ll find that a lot of them have dated white women, and done so proudly–which they should, it’s your life, and it’s a free country.

The road for this couple wasn’t as smooth as you would think. Since their divorce was never finalized, they renewed their vows in 2004.
Currently, the couple splits their time between upstate New York and Manhattan, and in 2011, the power couple had another child, Helen Grace De Niro, via surrogate.
