A Twitter debate is raging after photos went viral showing a Black man proposing to his white girlfriend in the middle of a cotton field.

The photos caused an uproar among Black women for various reasons -- the most obvious reason is the image of a white woman choking a Black man while kissing him in a cotton field.

The images also caused discord among Black women who are forced to contend with other races stealing their men.

Congratulations to the happy couple.

'Precious' star Gabourey Sidibe has much to be Thankful for this holiday weekend. The ’Empire' actress is engaged.

Gabourey accepted boyfriend Brandon Frankel's proposal on Monday night and the couple announced the happy news via Instagram on Tuesday, Nov. 24.

It may seem like Gabby and Brandon have been together for years, but the couple only started dating at the beginning of 2019.

"It's weird that people think we're already married but I guess our hearts and intentions for each other are just that clear to see," Gabourey captioned a video showing off her ring. "My BFF proposed and now I get to hold him forever. The funniest man I've ever met. The sweetest human to exist."

She added:

"@brandontour made up a song for when i put my bonnet on at night. The second I look a bit stressed and overwhelmed, he jumps into action to take over what he can for me. Every moment with him is a joy. He is the partner i thought I was too independent to need. I've learned so much about myself through him and I feel grateful and excited to learn more about the entire world with him by my side. My partner, my best friend, my cats' daddy, my mans, my heart, my fiance!!!"

Antonio Brown is apparently back on his meds and back with the mother of his children, Chelsie Kyriss, the same one he evicted from his home.

The former Patriots wide receiver proposed to Chelsie, months after evicting her from his Florida mansion.

On Thursday, Antonio shared an Instagram video that showed him holding Chelsie and asking her to be his wife. The couple reconciled after months of turmoil and bad press. They dated on and off for several years and she is the mother of his 3 sons.

In one text message he wrote "U going to be back here we going to recommit for our boys u hear me then I want to feel your love no more basic I miss u."

Chelsie captioned the text: "This is what happens when you refuse to go back!"

A Louisiana man died while proposing to his girlfriend underwater in Tanzania. Steven Weber tried to hold his breath underwater for 2 minutes while proposing to his girlfriend, Kenesha Antoine.

Antoine reported the tragic news on her Facebook page on Sept. 20. She said the couple took a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the East African nation where they stayed at an underwater resort.

The couple booked a submerged room at Manta Resort on Pemba Island, where they watched marine life swim by their hotel window.

Antoine filmed Weber swimming to their hotel room window and presenting a note inside a Ziplock bag.

The note read, "I can't hold my breath long enough to tell you everything I love about you, but everything I love about you I love more every day."

The other side of the note read: "Will you please be my wife? Marry me???" Weber then swam out of the camera frame.

He passed out and died from elevated carbon dioxide levels in his blood before he could reach the surface. Weber never got the chance to hear Antoine's response.

Antoine wrote a heartbreaking tribute to Weber on Facebook.com.

"You never emerged from those depths, so you never got to hear my answer, Yes! Yes! A million times, yes, I will marry you!!"

She continued: "Yes, we were, my perfect love, my angel, my soul. Yes, we were, and I will carry the blessing of the love we shared with me forever. I will find you and marry you in the next lifetime, and the next, and the next, and the next… I love you so much, and I always will."

Weber worked at St. Christopher’s Addiction Wellness Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He also worked part-time as a DJ.

Antoine is a successful attorney in Baton Rouge, according to her official website.
