I Was Her Valentine, She's Not Racist

Drumroll please ... Aaryn Gries' Valentine this year WAS A BLACK MAN -- so says the black man himself, and he insists it's proof the "Big Brother" villain isn't the disgusting racist she portrayed on TV.

Shawn Onyechi tells TMZ, he knows Gries from college in Texas and they were pretty close before she left for "Big Brother."

They didn't date, but Shawn says they were Valentines this year ... and he knows for a fact she's NOT the racist pig she appeared to be on the reality show.

Shawn even tweeted, "Who thinks Aaryn Gries from big brother is racist? I've heard her comments, but personally I KNOW otherwise."

Quick recap: Aaryn's said a bunch of racist crap on the show, including this reference to a black contestant: "Be careful what you say in the dark, you might not be able to see that bitch."

Aaryn has since been evicted from the "Big Brother" house, and in her defense she said she's not racist ... she's just Texan.

Whattt?!    

Doesn't anyone see what's going on here? It was public knowledge that Aaryn's Mother had hired a PR firm to do damage controll, once the firestorm over her daughters comments in the house errupted. Now all of a sudden there's a black guy coming forward claiming to be her Valentine, another one claiming to ber her prom date, and all kinds of "she can't be racist...look who she associates with" facts. No one finds this odd that none of this came to light while she was still in the house, and it's only coming forward now that she's been evicted (Jury house or not)? This reeks of a total PR ploy to try and recover whatever image she may still have before the live finale. She had an opportunity to own up to her mistakes during her eviction interview with Julie Chen... and bombed hard!! So just like clockwork... the PR firm kicks in and these people suddenly start to surface. It aint rocket science people...and apparently her PR firm isn't staffed by a bunch of rocket scientists also ! :o

I HATE when people try to prove they're not a racist or bigot by saying "LOOK i have a (insert different race) friend so it's impossible for me to be racist."

I love how everyone wants to pretend they are not racist because if her saying "Be careful what you say in the dark, you might not be able to see that bitch." is racist then all the remarks ALL OF YOU have said about black people in pictures "thank god he is smiling so i can see him" and dont even get on that high horse like you havent. Everyone has something that could be misconstued a racist but its not, its a hypersensitive world pretending to have this outrage but its phony and misplaced.

Is this pic for real, it looks completely photo shopped! Her head looks attached to someone else's body. Don't really care who wants to defend her, she needs to own it and get an education. Texans are not stereotyped! Every time she opens her mouth it only gets worse, she did this to herself and no sympathy from here. She acts like a very spoiled little girl and don't see her ever taking responsibility. You made the comments and tired of hearing, it's how they are being portrayed. House guests surprise feeds are 24/7, as if none of them knew. She will probably get a reality show, you know networks love drama just ask Shawn from above and his many failed attempts for fame.

Valentine is not enough proof. Be her boyfriend, then her fiance, then be the father of her future six children. And only then we can confirm she ain't racist. Idiot.

She is not racist, it is really unlikely. I never did thought she was. At school we make racist and sterotipical jokes.
