Well said. I know I can't be the only one who understood his initial intent when he posted those memes.

I heard that this guy is gay and so he left his wife for that reason. That white herpes infected lady was just a diversion.

To me and many black Europeans we don't claim mixed raced as black anyway. I'm sure ancient Egyptians didn't either.

But I digress.

Just another unoriginal wannabe. The images alone speak volumes. Super imposing a propaganda agenda driven Nike ad made you look dumb. I am so tired of these celebrities trying to be activists, public speakers and politicians. These careers are for scholars who have educated THEMSELVES with degrees. Not for people who think cos they had a conversation with a diplomat and a bit of cash they know something. FOH!

Is he going to advocate for the arrest of Carolyn Dunham? She revealed that she perjured herself on the stand causing Emmit Till's death. If he truly is going to stand for something he believes in.

Jesse, just say that marketing isn't your forte and that it's easier to plagiarize Wieden & Kennedy taglines and ride their coattails than come up with something yourself. #BadBrandPositioning

This fucking poser. Fuck you how dare you trivialize Emmitt with some bullshit ass Nike slogan. I fucking despise these fake ass woke fools.

@9am.... He does have a college degree. He was a history teacher prior to becoming an actor. I'm not sticking up for the dumb way he advertised but get your facts straight. He has been an advocate for black people long before the spotlight.

Thank you Juju Infinite! You are not alone.

@8:34 What the what? So what "race" is a "mixed race person" who is "Black" and...?
And ancient Egyptians were some of the original "mixed race" people. But I digress. Race is a MAN MADE social construct. Period. Point blank. The end.
This is why there are no Black leaders anymore. Malcolm X was "mixed race", did that dilute his message or influence? Black people are Black people's biggest enemy. Start loving us and stop viewing us through a white mans lens!

^^^ Mixed race person are known as third race, The original Egyptians were Black, not a mixed race of people, Malcolm X was not mixed, his mother was SMH, And coons as well as these outside nations are Black people's enemy.

Once again...whether it be his mother or him, still has the same blood. Your white supremacist mind set is showing. As far as the original Egyptians, there are too many books you need to read. The people you speak of did not call themselves Egyptians.

Mixed race are their own race of people. It is not that hard to figure out.

Malcolm X was a coon. He was a mason who was no better than that other one MLK.

Honestly.
