Aaryn Gries Prom Pics

Some of My Best Dates Are Black

EXCLUSIVE

0905_aaryn_gries_prom_pictures_launch"Big Brother" contestant Aaryn Gries has taken lots of heat for her racist comments on the show ... but we have color photos showing a more tolerant side.

We got pics of Aaryn's big prom night in 2009, when she was a senior at Douglas County High School in Castle Rock, Colorado.  Her prom date -- clearly visible in the photo -- is Mike Miller.  Mike -- who is BLACK -- was a starting tight end on the football team.

Mike tells TMZ Aaryn -- whom he dated for a few months -- makes bad jokes sometimes, but not "prejudiced or hateful."  He calls her sense of humor "smart-ass." 

Who knew ... she had a little black in her.

Sorry but he is mixed and his black is likely 25%if that so he doesnt count as a vlack man. Biracials are not black they are biracial stop trying to drop every. Mixed person off in iur gene pool. You guys can keep Halle berry too she aint black...

The real question is.. Would she eat his ahole? Now that would really prove she is not racist. If Aaryn's mom is reading this, we really need to see an ahole eating picture.. Got any of those?

My thought/question is this... It seems suspicious that the photos have only surfaced AFTER she was booted out of the BB house. Why did mom wait so long t release photos? I mean if she was my kid and I wanted to help clear her name, I would have dug those old pictures out immediately and posted them asap. Too late to save your racist daughter now!!

I am sorry, but in this day an age, a white girl has to date at least 3 black guys to not be considered racist. I myself have only dated two, so unfortunately I am still racist. I hope I can find the lucky third soon, because being racist really sucks.

Oh well...

Aww look Aaryn has a black friend! She can now say she's not a Racist.. Far from the truth.. Making exceptions with one person or a few changes nothing. It's not "here look see she's not racist, she's with a black person here" there are many people who smile and are in the same company with Black people and then behind their backs say disgusting things as we seen her do on Big Brother. Her family wouldn't even write her letters they were so embarrassed of her.

This girl is one of the most beautiful chicks on the planet and you all are a bunch of hateful losers. It sucks when you have to admit you were wrong after spewing your unwarranted accusations at her. You TMZ'ers are pathetic and ignorant losers.
