Addison Russell’s wife Melisa Reidy-Russell

    Wow – this guy’s locked up at22? Do white women TARGET African American athletes? The incidence of inter-racial dating/marriage on this site – with the OVERWHELMING population being Black men/non-Black women – leads me to wonder…

    “Racist?” What did I say that’s racist? I merely wondered why so many of the Black athletes on this site are paired with non-Black women. What’s wrong with asking that question? BM-WW pairings on this site seem to occur far more often than in the ‘regular’ population, so I wondered why that’s so.

    Try reading for comprehension next time, you illiterate pig!

    To the person above so concerned with white women with black athletes…you are commenting that on something about an athlete who is half white, half Filipino. His WIFE, Melisa, is ALSO half white, half Filipino. As for the black athletes with white women, it is just something that happens. Especially in baseball life.

    To all concerned (from Wikipedia):
    “On October 25, 2016, Addison Russell along with teammates Dexter Fowler, Jason Heyward, and Carl Edwards Jr., became the first African-Americans to play for the Cubs in a World Series game.”

    if Addison Russell is “an athlete who is half white, half Filipino,” then why does Wikipedia refer to him as African American? I’ll wait…

    If you’re going to try and correct someone, make sure you know what you’re talking about!

    To Guest Star (also from Wikipedia):
    Russell was born on January 23, 1994, in Pace, Florida, the eldest of four children raised by mother Milany and stepfather Wayne.[1][2] Russell’s mother is Filipina.[3] Russell’s full, birth name is “Geoffreye O’Neal Addison Robert Watts Jr III”.

    You don’t have to be purely African descent to be considered African-American. In the case of these kids, they probably bonded over having mothers that came from overseas from the same country.

    Addison Russell is half Filipino, no where does he talk about what his real fathers nationality is. He is from Pace, Florida. Addison Russell will say that he is from Pensacola, Fl. He has 2 children a boy and girl that were both born in 2015. I would assume that his wife knew that another woman was already pregnant with his child before she got pregnant. Addison and his wife weren’t married until 2016. I guess with that being said, Addison was with quite a few women before saying I Do. Let’s also take into account that they are both kids themselves.
