“Real Housewives of Potomac” fans had plenty to say about the latest episode. From Ashley Darby’s face-off with Katie Rost to Karen Huger’s shouting match with Gizelle Bryant, opinions were aplenty on social media. But Candiace Dillard probably didn’t anticipate the criticism that would be coming her way. She was accused of being racist.

Turns out some people were offended by what she said during Gizelle and Karen’s confrontation. The confrontation took place in the hotel lobby at the Cayman Islands. As the two women got loud, Candiace reminded them that white people were watching. There are viewers who feel like Candiace’s comments were racist.

      Yes, you are absolutely right.
      In the dumbest a-shole of them all.

        You already know if a white person would’ve said black people are watching then they would’ve definitely been called a racist. You know that, just don’t wanna say it lol

          Allison, let’s get real. A white person never would have said black people are watching because in white folks eyes, blacks don’t matter, so your point is moot. Bye, bye!

      The white people were watching because all you broads do is get loud when your two feet from each other in classy places where that kind of communication is inappropriate!

        Well PETE,glad to know you’re the conversation police, it must be hard for people like you, hate us, but ALWAYS watching us,just like your ancestors,hated blacks,but raped them never the less, both men and women,but it was all in the name of God and the bible right.Get over yourself, and live your own d-mn life such as it is.

          Fighting in public is inappropriate no matter what race you are. Talking/accusing somebody about rape, hate, etc is just doing the most. Pete makes a good point. Periodt.

      I think she’s a spoiled brat. Has no business gossiping about Ashly
      She’s jealous and an instigator. Talking about Candice. Scandalous!

    Did she really compare Candiace to Trump? I can’t.

      I’ve been waiting for someone to pick up what she said and then compare her to Trump. Get a grip.

    There was nothing racist about what Candiace said.

      Seriously??? What if a white person said that black people are staring? Double standards!!!

        August 24, 2019 at 6:50 pm

        You sound ridiculous. It wouldn’t even be racist if white people said it. Noting someone’s race isn’t racism. Stop gaslighting and read books on the subject so you won’t embarrass yourself on the internet.

          She’s stero typing, hating on her, If 2 black guys call each other “N” it’s not racist.

            Allen, I want you to explain to us how saying someone’s race, as Candiace did, is racism. This is my issue with a lot of you. Instead of actually learning about racism and having real discourse about it, you guys pretend to be colorblind and scream reverse racism at every turn. It just shows how privileged you are. Black people know what racism is. We live it. It must be nice to cry wolf about something you have never gone through.

          Again, read more books. You’re just as uneducated and foolish as Robin. And it’s no excuse for you to be so ignorant on this topic. If you’re old enough to watch RHOP, you’re old enough to know what racism actually is because this is not it.

          • Allison

      • Kay Star

        August 26, 2019 at 12:12 pm

        A white would not have cared. You know blacks don’t matter to them. Am I right or what?

        August 26, 2019 at 4:44 pm

        Robin something tells me you and those that had the audacity to agree with you are the same ones who accuse black people of being racist for calling out actual racism. People like you intentionally ruin any actual discourse about racism. Just know your tactics won’t work on here. You know this wasn’t racist. But you’ll pretend otherwise because you get a kick out of riling up black people. Stop being disingenuous.You’re too old to be an internet troll.

      Not Racist at all, just make the ladies aware because of the stereo typical thoughts that normally perceived by some folk. That’s all

      I absolutely 100% agree with Candiace. I watched the episode and she is a thousand percent correct. I thought the same thing. This is one of the thousand stereotypes that we always manage to prove correct…our loud mouths during a daamn argument over B.S.

    Yvonne, there is something wrong with you! I personally don’t care for Candiance, however, pointing out the obvious doesn’t make her racist. You may be biracial as am I but IMHO you don’t have a clue about real racism if your tiny brain can equate what was said by Candiance to the filth that emminates from the orange day-glow idiot regularly.Girl, get a grip, read a real history book and have several seats.

    It’s infuriating how ignorant a lot people are about racism. I just got done reading a book about the things black people went through during the reconstruction era. To even think what Candiace said was racist is the stupidest thing I’ve seen on the internet all week.

    Comparing a comment someone is staring to someone who actually sets policies of locking people in cages, ripping babies out of parents’ arms, denying people basic toiletries, labeling groups of people rapists, and on and on,is not just uninformed, it’s ridiculous. Never mind the fact the woman’s HUSBAND is WHITE.

    Why do blacks always get away with white comments. Like white men cant jump. What if whites said blacks cant swim. They have the guts to always call whites names like cracker snow white.

        I’ll paste this here for you as well since you agreed with Eve’s ignorant comment:

        When you’ve never experienced racism, you think that old a-s movie titles from the 90s are oppressive and a form of racism. If you had any common sense, you’d be embarrassed by this bullsh-t you typed.

    August 24, 2019 at 11:21 pm

    That sounds racist to me people wouldn’t like if a white person would say those black people are looking if the rols were switch because then black people would say that white person was races and ir dont matter that she is married to a white man she can still be racist and vice versa so lets keep it 100 i wouldn’t compare her to Donald Trump because I don’t think anybody can be like him or compared to him that I disagree with

    Well black folks stop saying and labeling things black this and black that (black love, black lives, black businesses, black organizations etc.) and all this would stop. Let’s look at the human aspect from all races and cultures and not the color so one one would get offended. We say things about ourselves and when another race says it its racism yet we’re not sensitive to when we say it. I love Candace and I understood what she meant however lets not forget how we feel when it’s said about us. I can imagine thr uproar if the housewives were white and said the black people are watching. Point is we are all humans; yes racism exists but we are too quick to jump and say it’s racism when it’s simply a “HUMAN BEING” showing unkindness.

    • Shayla

      August 25, 2019 at 4:50 am

      Did you really just put the responsibility of ending racism on black people? No, you’re not black and your ignorance is showing. Lastly, black people highlight things like black love and black businesses because those things are our way of fighting against the stereotypes created by racists. The fact that you’re triggered by black people highlighting our successes and not actual racism says a lot about you. Some of you are so uneducated and delusional it’s revolting.

        We still talking about this? The bible clearly says “love thy neighbour as thyself.” If you all do this no matter what color we are things will get better. Heaven knows no color. There will be no segregation there so we must learn to tolerate each other whether we are black or white. No one should make jokes or label someone based on color and if they feel offended it’s their right whether black or white. All I’m saying is if you dont like it for yourself don’t do it to others. I read comments from both blacks and whites who feel offended by the stereotypes so we all need to stop. What I would really like to see is the calling of the N word as a cool brotherhood thing and when others use it’s an uproar. How can we validate it’s ok to use it on each other and in songs and glorify if when it stems from slavery and negative experiences. Let’s set the example and treat each other with kindness. Let’s show black love by keeping our neighborhoods drug free, clean, crime free and helping each other out. It shouldn’t just be a cliche.

          August 26, 2019 at 8:32 pm

          First of all, you are not black. Stop the act. I’ll say it again so maybe you’ll get it this time, it is not the responsibility of black people to end racism. If you read books on the subject, you’d know that already. But you don’t read and don’t care to learn anything outside of your privileged bubble. We didn’t start racism. So take your “I don’t see color” lecture somewhere else. Your last two sentences are pure trash. Black people have tried to play the respectability politics game since the 1800s during the Reconstruction Period. And it has not ended racism. We built up our own communities. We were educated. Owned businesses. Minded our business. And racists still came and burned down our towns and killed innocent black people. Research Black Wallstreet. That’s just one example of how we can meet all your expectations and are hated anyway. You’re disgusting for insinuating that black people need to be the example to end a system we didn’t create. This is one of the most ignorant comments I have ever read about racism. The audacity of you thinking saying the N-word has anything to do with this. You “I see no color” people are very dangerous and stand in the way of true progression. I really can’t stand yall either. Always quick to hide behind the Bible and God when your mentality is anything but Godly.

    August 27, 2019 at 4:45 pm

    what’s wrg w/Robin I mean besides being a total airhead, she act like she cant talk , maybe she needs Gizelle to make her some memory cards so she know what she can and cannot say between her and Candice thy should just do cartoons b/c those ppl just talk through animated characters you don’t see them. I think thy act the way they do because with the exceptions us the 2 newborns (Candice/Ashley) everybody else menapausing, well Monique said forget menapausing she didn’t take the bait instead she got pregnant she knw everybody this thy geriatrics , Katie real sweet I think she a pretty girl going through somethings.

    White people were watching so what was racist about saying it
    If white people said the black people are watching? So what that’s not racist either. Some people just so d-mn ridiculous. This isn’t racist people. Try learning what racism is or look in the mirror watch your family members you’ll see it

  24. Just Saying

    August 30, 2019 at 4:51 pm

    a well educated person would have said “ladies we too loud, ppl are staring” why separate who’s looking if you not making a statement, just asking????????? but I expect nothing else for her she low budget chic!
