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.
think it’s already started.
good to see actors like jussie fighting agaisnt that narrative in their roles.
you’re doing amazing sweetie.
