Mike Tyson opened up to T.I. Harris about his children, and his life.
Former boxing heavyweight champion of the world, Mike Tyson was a guest on T.I.Harris‘ podcast “ExpediTIously.”
Tyson spoke openly about his children’s tendency to avoid relationships with Black people and blames himself for providing a negative example.
Being a parent is never easy, as T.I. Harris, himself a father well knows. He and the ex-boxing champ spoke frankly about the pitfalls of being a father – and how their failings may affect their children.
For Tyson, one of the things he finds hard to accept is that his children don’t date within their community. He said:
Do you know what bothers me too, man? And I gotta say this: Why my kids don’t like black kids? They don’t date black kids. Why is that?”

Tyson went on to explain that he believes his aggressiveness gave his daughter a bad example of how a black man acts. Tyson, who had admitted to physically abusing his ex-wife Robyn Givens, said:
“They must have seen sometimes when I was vulnerable and said, ‘Hey, I don’t wanna be with no one like that. … He’s scary.’ I think it’s the aggressiveness, I think it’s confrontational stuff, they think.”
