I’m not one to judge professional athletes and who they sleep with. I don’t have the time or the energy to even attempt to keep track with who they pick to be their latest girl for the month let alone the week. However when you don’t set the proper guidelines early on, things like this occur. New Orleans Saints running back Pierre Thomas is dating nursing student, dance teacher, aspiring chef, and YouTube video model Candace Damiani, just to name a few things off of her resume. Now the fact that he is dating her isn’t disturbing news. Athletes have a new pick of litter every other week. The fact that she uses the wrong “n*gga” is alarming, however. “rt @candacendamiani @slicenola @pierre_thomas That was the best Po Boy! I’m glad you introduced me to it! Ha” – np @slicenola does it right — Pierre Thomas (@Pierre_Thomas) December 23, 2011 Thomas keeps his online social accounts extremely professional. If it’s not related to football or his fans you want see anything from him, which is a good thing. Unfortunately he didn’t pick a female who shared  those same qualities. Her Twitter and Instagram accounts maybe low in followers, minus a few athletes, but that doesn’t mean she keeps personal information private. That would be too much like right. Cropping  an image can go a long way in preventing unwanted items from being discovered , unless you simply want it to be known. Hence the plane ticket below. Just got the best email. Hellllllloooo Maui! twitter.com/candacedamiani… — Candace Damiani (@candacedamiani) February 4, 2013 Candace is a chocolate lover and that’s fine. We welcome cornball brothers and lovers over here. I think that’s public knowledge by now. However because she is dating a black athlete does that justify her for using the word n*gga? Does that imply Thomas is fine with his girlfriend using such language and referring to him as one? This is what happens when you don’t set proper guidelines in the beginning. I’ll allow you to be the judge. Is this fair or foul?

    2. I don't believe anyone, black OR white should use the n-word! That being said, some folks (not all) in the african american community feel that they can use this derogatory word at their own disposal. The use of this term, even when done casually by the african american people, can invite others to feel that they may also use the word in a cultural context
    I am not saying that is right but I don't think that ANYONE should use the word!
    PS Some might say calling a white woman a "chocolate lover" might be just as racist as her tweet was!
