Paul Ryan's Black Ex

I'm a Democrat ...

But I'm STILL a Ryan Fan

breaking news

Paul Ryan's ex-girlfriend Deneeta Pope
Paul Ryan
's college sweetheart -- who happens to be black -- says she's a full-fledged Barack Obama supporter ... but she still can't help but cheer for the GOP's Vice Presidential candidate.

In case you didn't know ... Ryan has claimed he experienced racism because his sister-in-law is black ... and his own college girlfriend was black too.

Now, Ryan's 40-year-old college gf is speaking out -- her name's Deneeta Pope, and she tells the Daily Mail, "I am indeed a Democrat. That’s no secret. But although I have a different political association to Paul, I support him and wish him continued success."

As for the racism Ryan talked about -- Pope says she never saw it ... but adds, "Paul is a very nice guy, a kind guy and a family guy."

And if that's not enough to show he's still on great terms with his ex -- Pope says Ryan and his wife even attended Pope's wedding in May.

Well, at least we know Ryan's good at break-ups.

Oh yeah ... and Deneeta's really hot -- check out this video she did for her local bar method studio in Chicago.

The lady's ethnicity, should not be relevant.
Ah, the deep, well-crafted, and -most of all-
exploited monster of Division, is alive and well
in "America".

Any media or stupid politician who keeps bring up race should be flogged...

I am tired of hearing how racist we are and the reality is we are no where close to have America was even in the 60's.

There are racist jerkoffs still alive and there will always be those type of weak minded idiots but its no where close to even the 80's.

Media and people running for office use this to make people feel bad for nothing. Who cares if he dated a black girl. I have dated one too.. so what.. I am married to a white girl but I have also dated a Asian, east Indian, Guam etc.. so what..

Funny thing is the Gov. is one of the biggest offenders of Racism left. They need to stop sending me **** in Spanish, signing me up into programs when I went to college, all other crap..

Just because he dated a black woman doesn't mean his policies any less bigoted.


Besides, there is nothing that will convince me this man is not in the closet.

What TMZ? Trying to deflect attention from the awful convention night last night?
