John Mayer:

Tiny Part of Me

Is White Supremacist

2/10/2010 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John MayerJohn Mayer is at the center of a racial controversy -- and it's all because he compared his penis to a white supremacist.

It's all over an interview Mayer just gave to Playboy Magazine -- in which he was asked, "Do black women throw themselves at you?"

Mayer's response: "I don't think I open myself to it. My d*ck is sort of like a white supremacist. I've got a Benetton heart and a f*ckin' David Duke c*ck. I'm going to start dating separately from my d*ck."

Mayer goes on to name some African-American women he's attracted to, but we gotta ask ...

I know, it may have come out a little... rude. But, it's his preference, now of course all these people are jumping on him for it, but honestly w.e. most people are a tiny predjudice anyways. He's sexy so :)

If you watch John speaking in his "Where the Light is" DVD, you'll get where he is coming from with his attitude towards the media.. "I don't mind the media so much except they always misinterpret and take out of context what I say. As a result they mess up the message I am trying to send out with my music. They get in the way..." John is fully aware of how ridiculous his comments sometimes are and I suspect he just is playing the media for what they are.. Get enough of a quote and sell more newspapers by twisting the words out of context. He is a brilliant musician, talented beyond belief. If you listen carefully to him as he speaks to the audience, John lives for the music, he doesn't give a you-know-what for the publicity he gets from a bunch of a-holes "interpreting" his every word. He is fully cognizant of how the media attempts to sell their stories by twisting and bending quotes to suit their need to "sell the grocery store" newspapers. He is passionate about what he does and the only real context in which he should be listened to is within his world.. Onstage, facing his greatest critics and fans, laid bare by his music..there you will find the real John Mayer, not the idiot he is made out to be by organizations hellbent only on selling the next paper or magazine to the hungry public. He is an intelligent, talented individual who runs by his own rules, as well he should. Its that unwillingness to "bend and conform" to the common hordes that fuels the masses to "interpret" his intent. He is not a racist by any means. He simply loves what he does, it is in his soul. And he is fully aware he needs to make a certain type of music for the dumb masses who follow like sheep the latest "trend" and have no understanding of what makes great music. As he said, the Trio music is his answer to the "pop" music he is forced to make in order to have the venues to perform the music that really counts.. jazz, blue, soul and plain rock and roll. Ignore the media accounts, listen to him on "Where the Light is" and you will see the real John Mayer. And keep in mind that what is written about him is for the sole purpose of creating controversy and to sell newspapers and magazines. I, along with many many others, just simply ignore all of this and understand the man behind the music. He is still one of the few that has the cajones to play real music... he is absolutely brilliant... One of the best out there...

I am so very disappointed in you John Mayer, cause i actually loved you and your music. i had nothing but unconditional love for you, but seeing as i'm black you can understand why white supremacy and calling people ******s upset me. i can't believe you! to think i actually defended you to people, because i knew sometimes magazines invent things so their stories sell! What a waste:(!
