i been wonder that now with the current racial climate these days,
how are the ‘i only date/marry white’ are feeling?
the ones who sold out and became ra(coon)-ish peak the most interest.
now i don’t know if taye diggs sold out,
but he is the poster wolf for all i’m talmbout.
he seems very “aware” since he isn’t married to his white queen,
he went on vicelands,
“desus and mero”,
and they asked him what would he tell his younger self.
his response was interesting to me…
“[I’d tell myself] to just slow down,” Diggs says on Viceland’s “Desus & Mero” Tuesday, June 12. “I was real quick with, ‘OK, I’m doin’ it. I want these roles. How come I’m only getting the Black roles? I wanna be this and that and that. I started switching agencies and I didn’t realize how racist the business was early on. I felt like I was a little bit above it.”
He explained there was “a reason why I didn’t have Matt Damon’s career.” And that no one explicitly told him the business was racist. Despite switching agents who continued to promise the “Set It Up” actor they’d get him the big roles, they failed to nab them.
“I wish I could have just chilled out and just sat back and waited just a little longer,” Diggs says. “Because there was a lot of unrest and me chasing s— instead of just being aware of what I had and then working with that.”
why don’t black actors/actresses shout out other blacks as role models?
why would you want a career like matt damon?
what about denzel?
maybe even the male viola or angela?
i don’t ever want to be like perez hilton,
but i do admire writers/bloggers like issa rae or luuvie.
that’s something that low key annoys me when we don’t highlight our own.
now i can’t font for taye,
who seems like a nice wolf,
but it’s no secret how this “game” works.
they get with someone white and try to get another fan base.
once they break up,
they see exactly how real the racism is in forests.
white folks ain’t gonna turn on their own.
so it’s almost like the white person is a shield in hollywood.
i’m sure when taye was getting all the “black leading wolf” roles,
he never noticed how it really was.
it was there,
but he may have been ignorant to it.
once he started opening his mouth,
and turned off most of his main fan base that was black vixens…
there you have it.
outside of his “roles”,
he’s actually pretty corny too.
it might be the outfits and the hats.
lowkey: he has/had a nice tail…
so i’ll let him rock.
