Grammy-winning artist John Mayer is known for delivering explosive interviews, but the sexually and racially charged (and scotch-fueled) statements he makes in a profile in the March issue of Playboy sent shock waves across the Internet today.
This being a family Web site, most of Mayer’s most controversial remarks can’t be published. They were prompted by questions about his past collaborations inside the rap community.
“What is being black?” Mayer pondered. “It’s making the most of your life, not taking a single moment for granted. Taking something that’s seen as a struggle and making it for you, or you’ll die inside. Not to say that my struggle is like the collective struggle of black America. But maybe my struggle is similar to one black dude’s.”
One specific answer that drew an inflammatory response involved how he reacts when African-American women come on to him.
[From the Playbow Interview] "PLAYBOY: Do black women throw themselves at you?
MAYER: I don’t think I open myself to it. My dick is sort of like a white supremacist. I’ve got a Benetton heart and a fuckin’ David Duke cock. I’m going to start dating separately from my dick."

I've never liked John Mayer. I think hes talened on the guitar but I thought his music was shitty and he always seemed like a huge douchebag. This just proves that he's not only a douchebag, but a racist douchebag at that. Do the world a favor John and overdose on something fast.
