The Black Snob Asks: What If These White Celebs Were Black?

Case No. 2: Charlie Sheen

This “winning” actor is probably the worst guy possible for you to ever date. He once (possibly) shot actor John Travolta’s now-wife Kelly Preston. (He claims she shot herself, but … um … OK.) Then there was that ugly divorce from ex-wife Denise Richards and the stampede of party girls, call girls, hookers, models and professional pretty women Sheen has abused, terrorized or humiliated. And I didn’t even start talking about his “career,” marked by drug abuse and insults.


He probably wouldn’t have made it out of the 80s. Think about it. He’s drowning in beat up starlets and prostitutes. He’s high all the time and seems to be mentally unstable. Maybe some people will tolerate you and find your violent horndog charm “endearing,” but I have a hard time believing Samuel L. Jackson would still be working (or alive) today if he had conducted himself in the same manner as he struggled with his own crack cocaine addiction. Time is not kind to the brother who snorts up all the drugs and fights all the women. And that doesn’t change if you’re famous.

Case in point: The Temptations’ David Ruffin; blues legend and infamous abuser of Tina Turner, Ike Turner; Sam Cooke of the beautiful voice and the violent death after fighting with a woman after being robbed by a hooker; my favorite and most troubled member of Wu-Tang Clan, Ol’ Dirty Bastard; and … technically Bobby Brown, although his career is more so dead, while his body lives on.
