There's been be intellectual stimulation from them, the cultural differences. LINDA BENZ: Cultures, I like different cultures in different backgrounds and it just interests me. But now that things are changing, demographics are changing around Australia, it's really great to see, you know, that kind of thing happening and more. MIKE MIOCEVICH: In the movie Burglar, everybody, basically we were watching it over at a friend's place and everybody was like man this is the funniest film, you know, we thought it was absolutely fantastic but I thought that she was really attractive. SOPHIE SONG: I came to be attracted to him over time.
JENNY BROCKIE: So when did this attraction start for you, how did it start? JENNY BROCKIE: Okay, I want you to explain to me a little bit more about what it is about black women that you find so attractive, are there qualities that you see that you find, is it physical, is it cultural, what is it? He had quite limited English when we first met but actually he was able to convey his personality and sense of humour really clearly, despite his language limitation, and I came to feel that we had quite similar, I guess, I guess complementing personalities.
After three months of chatting online, John proposed to Edelisa – before they'd met in person.
John specifically sought out an Asian woman for a partner because "Asian women treat western men better than a white woman might".
JENNY BROCKIE: Welcome everyone, good to have you with us tonight. RUDO BANYA: I really don't have a rational explanation as to why, I just am. I think personality wise as well, certain interests and things - I just tend to find that I connect better with Caucasian men. LINDA BENZ: Would be for darker men, African men predominantly is probably where I'm sort of more drawn to.
Rudo, let me start with you, you have Southern African heritage, what kinds of guys are you attracted to? JENNY BROCKIE: Now you're married to a white Australian man? JENNY BROCKIE: And you've never dated an African man? JENNY BROCKIE: Okay, Linda, what about you, who do you date? JENNY BROCKIE: And what are you drawn to about African men?

I recognize that Snapchat is a thing that is a very popular thing. Earlier this year, Kanye West released an album that everyone cared about for like five weeks. Perhaps there might be some legal involvement because of California privacy laws, but ultimately this involves three unfathomably rich and famous and annoying people who will continue to be unfathomably rich and famous and annoying. She’ll produce an album about this, win a bunch of awards, and have her Grammy acceptance speech interrupted by North West throwing a sippy cup at her. But if you put a gun to my head and asked me to name five Taylor Swift songs, I’d be confused that your choice to shoot me was based on such arbitrarily specific criteria. She’s rich and famous so she dates rich and famous men. This is how I feel about attempting to determine Kanye’s motives for doing things. Kanye, however, would later tweet that he actually reached out to Taylor about the lyric before incorporating it in his song. Or, rather, friendly enough to have this conversation. And, of course, most of the country seemed to believe Taylor. Which means you’ll never have to go without receipts. Like, imagine the longest TSA line you’ve ever seen.
