13 real years, not five years, not seven years — 13 years.
And all of a sudden motherfuckers are writing think pieces that I somehow threw a 13-year relationship, like the most painful experience I’ve had in my life like with a person I’ve loved with all of my heart, that I threw a person and my family in the trash because a girl I work with is cute.” Pardon this motherfucker, but the inclusion of your personal life in a project by JAY-Z is pretty much inviting public scrutiny on yourself.
It’s no secret that men like Williams and Colin Kaepernick have enjoyed outsized media attention — and with that, criticism — due to the perception that they are non-threatening black men.
But I’m thankful that both men have used their platforms to speak openly and honestly about what it means to be a black person in America today.
Black women have to take what they can get, which is why they flock to films like — rare examples of projects that depict not only positive, but three-dimensional black women.

His description of Kelly as a “cute girl,” in particular, has come under fire, since Drake-Lee often found herself under attack on Twitter for purported “average” looks — a cruel insinuation that Williams never addressed publicly.After all, JAY-Z delivers a very definitive statement on the song “The Story of O.J.” about how success as a black person does not mean you can cast your blackness aside.Conversely, it does no good to equate Williams’ relationship with Kelly to other high-profile interracial relationships — like Serena Williams and her fiancé Alexis Ohanian.Black women in America are disproportionately judged for interracial relationships, and here we are, faced with hordes of men attempting to “justify” Serena’s relationship while conveniently overlooking the long history of disrespect toward black women in America.
