When Mellody Hobson and George Lucas celebrated their wedding at a reception in Chicago last month, it was truly a star studded event. This was also the day that former Mayor of Chicago, Richard M. Daley put the spotlight on his new relationship with Savvy Sistah Dr. Adele Joy Cobbs. This 41 year beautiful & educated emergency doctor has reportedly been dating the 71 year old Daley for 6 months.
Richard M. Daley was the Mayor for 22 years and just recently in 2011 he lost his wife Maggie Daley to cancer. Dr. Adele Cobbs and Richard M. Daley have been knowing each other for a few years according to DNAinfo.com. “In 2010, when Cobbs was 38 years old, Daley appointed her to the Chicago Board of Health, a position she still holds, according to the department’s website. Cobbs is the youngest medical doctor on the unpaid board”.
Love has no color! You’re starting to see many powerful men dating women of color and not because they met them at the strip club. It’s troubling to see all the young girls emulating women twerking and not graduating from college and becoming doctors. We need more role models like Dr. Cobb.
