Mayer Blames "Whiteness" for Hip-Hoplessness

7/8/2008 7:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

John Mayer has officially cauc-blocked himself from singing with one of his favorite bands -- as in he thinks he's too Caucasian to get down with The Roots!

Moments later, his dance moves reinforced his point.

I hate to sound rude but who writes some of these captions/summaries/etc? They barely ever make sense. They are painful to try to read/decipher sometimes. this one in particular isn't awful but sometimes they are just like "WHAT?". Just sayin'. Still love you guys. LOL

Nope...I decided, he is way too cool to be with Jen long term...he needs a woman who opens him up to new worlds, not merely one who fans herself over his world! But hey, OK! Magazine has them all in love, getting married and having a baby already, so what do I know!!

oh Sarah (and what kind of name is Sarah? Black?) mee tooo... am I black or white? My Mama's folks, folks, folks...
hail from Norway. My Pop's folks and their folks and so on hail from
Lithuania and Poland respectively, besides being a mutt of first rate
folk does this make me a bi racial jewish white girl? I did notice a
bit of pink in my cheeks the other day when I imagined John Mayer
naked.

John Mayer performed with the drummer from The Roots on Dave Chapelle's show on Comedy Central (want to say 2nd season; episode where Dave Chapelle goes around and plays different kinds of music to different cultures to gain their reactions and prove what cultures like what music) - HILARIOUS. I don't think John has anything to worry about - he's a super talented guy with a good sense of humor - lighten up people!

Make It Right!!    

and what exactly is the point to your diatribe Sarah...except to announce to the entire world that you are a complete and utter RACSICT! Please, post your picture so we can see the face of hatred and stop hiding your hateful self behind a computer keyboard!! I myself am so white that i am transparent and I sure wish I had something else in me cuz growing up in Southern California as a teenager and NOT being able to get a tan really sucks the big one!! How great it would be to have darker skin that you never had to worry about whether you are tan enough to wear a bathing suit, shorts or a skirt!! Fashion was made for tan skin tones...not for us whiteys!! And yes, we all come from Africa!! So we are all BLACK...only some of us lost our pigmentation...and that sucks.
