jussie smollett only wants his coffee dark on “empire”

jussie smollett is my guy.
dare i font,
he seems like he’d make a good hubby too.

well jussie was approached about having a white love interest on “empire”.
this was his response on the “the clay cane show” via “the huffington post”

“There was talk about Jamal having a white boyfriend,” Smollett recalled. “And I said, ‘Fuck no!’ Not for any reason, except we have a responsibility and we have a such a beautiful opportunity to show two black men in a relationship together, in a healthy relationship.”

Stressing that his casting view “wasn’t anything against white men,” he continued, “This is what I hope, this is what I want to see and this is what I wish I had seen as a kid. If I had seen certain things as an adolescent, I would’ve had a much different understanding of who I am.”

he’s so dreamy ‘n’ shit.
well i’m glad he spoke up for himself because we need more of “that” on tv.

Blacks folks do date/procreate with other black folks

…especially gay/bi ones.
from a lot of stuff i’ve seen on tv,
most black gay males tend to be paired with some snow/latino wolf/fox.
i don’t know if it’s to make folks comfortable or what.
it’s okay to date/appreciate/celebrate your kind ya’ll.
what someone did to you in elementary/high school shouldn’t reflect all of “us”.
i know that tends to be the excuse for many black males out here.
it’s gonna get to a point we don’t see “black love” on tv anymore.
i think it’s already started.
good to see actors like jussie fighting agaisnt that narrative in their roles.
you’re doing amazing sweetie.

  1. It’s about time someone put their foot down. I’m tired of every time there’s a black gay character in a movie or TV show they always pair them with a white partner. They even did that shit on Insecure with Ahmal, which is suppose to be a black ass show. I’m tired of seeing that shit

  2. I discussed this is another thread somewhere I was wondering why a person of color has to be paired up with a fair skinned individual.

    I think a little side eye to my Film Theory course see this problem in more than a few movies and they don’t always involve romantic relationships.

    It’s what they chime in as “White Savior” media. The movie could be about a black person that is headed towards success but they usually have a fair skinned person that pushes them towards their goal. The white writer, the white housewife doing the work of Jesus.

    Of course a white partner would be right of Lee’s Euro only loving fantasy. (He acts like an elitist in person & he probably still is to this day. The vibe I picked up from him seemed to be what some folks might called favoritism to the lighter shades of the rainbow.)

    In ways Jussie is cute. I liked him in The Skinny.

If you wouldn't say it on live TV with all your family and friends watching, without getting canceled or locked up, don't say it on here. Stay on topic, no SPAM, and keep it respectful. Thanks!
