Usain Bolt, the world’s fastest man, is getting a lot of attention. Not for his speed, but for dating a white woman.
Jamaicans have accused him of suffering from “white woman complex” after the public found out that he’s been dating fashion designer Lubica Slovak.
One online comment said: ‘Really now Usain! Some successful black men obviously suffer from a white woman complex. You too?’
Another stated, “Another one of our men snatched.”
Although we can see Usain and Lubica looking quite happy in pictures, many are not happy with the interracial relationship.
One such example of their displeasure was when the Jamaican Observer published a picture of the sprinter and fashion designer kissing which included a controversial cartoon.
The cartoon depicted Usain Bolt running away from a black woman with “local” written on her T-shirt and running towards a woman with the title “Slovakian fashion designer.”
As for people close to the couple, they give their full support to the relationship.
A friend said, “[Usain] has settled down with Lubica. It works because they are both successful and focused. She focuses on her designs, he focuses on his sport. There is no stress in this relationship. She is a calm, very nice, industrious, busy woman. She has her own life so she isn’t demanding.”
