Bae, Big Sean, and Jhene Aiko: Jhene Aiko Opens Up About How Her Relationship With Big Sean Began: "He Wanted to Take Me Out on a Date. I Had a Boyfriend, But I Still Went Just As A Fiendr @balleralert Jhene Aiko Opens Up About How Her Relationship With Big Sean Began: "He Wanted to Take Me Out on a Date. I Had a Boyfriend, But I Still Went Just As A Friend"- blogged by @lanaladonna ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last week, JheneAiko completed a promo run in London for her newest album, ‘Trip’. While in the U.K., the singer stopped by ‘1Xtra Breakfast Show with Dotty,’ a popular radio show on the overseas network, BBC Radio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During the interview, Aiko discussed how her and rapper bae, BigSean became the couple we know them as today, past relationships, motherhood, and more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "The year that my brother passed, I had just met him[Big Sean],” she explained "And we worked on "Beware" and "I'm Gonna Be". He wanted to take me out on a date. I had a boyfriend, but I still went...just as a friend.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sparks began to fly when their friendship began back in 2012, despite Jhene already being in a relationship. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I mean, I had never been courtside to a game," she jokingly added. "And he's cool. So, I told my boyfriend I'm gonna go to this game." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many believed that Aiko broke up with her boyfriend to pursue a relationship with Sean, but according to Jhene, their relationship was practically done before Sean even came into the picture. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Aiko’s then-boyfriend was secretly married to his baby mama (yikes!), and that’s what led to their split. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Timing played a huge role in the couple finally becoming a union. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “When I came around and was like, let’s see what he’s [Sean] talking about,” said Aiko. “He.. got a girlfriend. I took too long.” The two were playing relationship tag with one another for a while. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All’s well that ends well though, because their stars finally aligned, and now the couple can’t seem to be able to get enough of one another.

<p>“I had one guy from an NAACP branch chew me up one side and down the other, saying, you know, we’ve worked hard to get ten steps forward. Here you are sitting down with the enemy having dinner, you’re putting us twenty steps back. I pull out my robes and hoods and say, ‘look, this is what I’ve done to put a dent in racism. I’ve got robes and hoods hanging in my closet by people who’ve given up that belief because of my conversations sitting down to dinner. They gave it up. </p>
<h2><b>How many robes and hoods have you collected?’”</b></h2>

The white flight of Derek Black .Derek’s <b>father launched Stormfront</b>, the Internet’s first and largest white nationalist site, <b>and his mother was previously married to David Duke</b>, one of the country’s most infamous racial zealots.Because of his high profile parents, Derek became known among white supremacists as “the heir.”Derek eventually abdicated his noxious birthright after enrolling in a multicultural college, originally to disrupt the school.

<p>Seriously kill this idea that people can never change their views and the only recourse is to physically assault them. People often believe the way that they do because they’ve never even been exposed to another way of thinking by someone who didn’t want them dead.</p>
