i don’t know much about todrick.
i know he’s out.
and does drag on occasion.
black and white female celebs love him.
perfect out black gay male,
i’ve noticed he doesn’t get a ton of support from other black gay males.
his support appears to be “other”.
most of the complaints i’ve read been about is his dating preferences.
he prefers to play in the snow more than anything else.
because of this,
that’s where he’ll get the majority of support.
that means he is also boosted to the top of the food chain as well.
it made me wonder…
Was he smart to go after the white vote?
when you look at his ig,
sure he has brandy and kandi,
but taylor swift is all over his ig.
black gays claim we want more out gays in the spotlight…
…But why do some of us not stand behind him?
is it because he’s feminine?
isn’t relatable to “us”?
the “safe” out gay?
doesn’t look like a ig personal trainer?
even if he was super masculine,
and had crazy bawdy…
Would he have made it to where he was?
most of that archetype,
that would be in his position,
don’t want anything to really do with blacks behind the scenes.
you’ll notice they’ll be with what supports them.
i’ve also noticed the ones on ig with:
thug/bad boy look
skin color may vary (although light skin gets the most)
sexuality is “straight”; rumors may vary
has “the look” to be famous
…that are getting tons of support from blacks,
especially gay black males,
are struggling to book a role/sing/rap.
all they do is take selfies and get stuck escorting.
are we too obsessed with their looks to care?
and are they too obsessed with their looks to make it?
it’s interesting to me who “makes it” these days.
social media has everyone flexing to be “the next big thing”.
when i think about a majority of our successful black celebs today,
they made sure they got the white vote or cosign.

where are the ones who are only about black support?
are a majority of blacks too fickle in who we support?
some of us simply don’t do enough for our own.
we tear folks down and then complain we have nothing.
so why make fun of someone who ends up on “onlyfans”?
or ends up selling out in order to survive?
or like todrick,
realized long ago where his bread is buttered?
so i had to ask the foxhole…
