The 20 Biggest Stereotypes in Sports History

Black athletes always marry white women.

From Tiger Woods to RGIII, many noteworthy black athletes have married white women. And while we can't present scientific data to dispel or confirm this belief, we are here to tell you that this type of interracial marriage isn't always happening. Sure, Robert Griffin III married college sweetheart Rebecca Liddicoat (a white girl), Jrue Holiday married U.S. Women's Soccer player Lauren Cheney (also white), but what about the relationships of the more popular ballers in the league today, like Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Dwyane Wade, just to name a few.

It is true that only one of these players (Melo) is actually married, however, KD just proposed to Monica Wright, LeBron is set to marry Savannah Brinson this fall and Wade's been dating Gabrielle Union for a minute now, so you gotta think a marriage proposal could be on the horizon. If anything, blame his ex-wife Siovaughn Funches for messing up D-Wade's feelings towards marriage and long-term commitment.
