Though Eve is back on the scene with a new album “Liplock,” she really never left the blogosphere due to her relationship with race car driver, Maximillion Cooper. Though she’s said “she can’t believe she’s with a white dude,” the rapper is head over heels for the British entrepreneur and is talking marriage and children with him.
The “pitbull in a skirt” opened up to Vibe Vixen about how she’d approach race while marrying biracial children:
I want them to be colorblind, but I do want them to understand both sides of themselves. I’m a black woman and I love being a black woman. And I think my child should know that black part of themselves. But obviously at the same time, their father would be white and I would want them to know that side of themselves. And British! That’s a whole other situation (laughs). But in doing that, I think they can be colorblind. I don’t want them to see color. I never did. I grew up in the hood and my mother was very good at it not being a black thing, even though I grew up around all black people. I want them to want to know everything about all kinds of races. And hopefully they will.
Her words echo Kim Kardashian’s, who was recently quoted as saying:
The most important thing is, the way I want to raise my children is to not see color.
