I wonder if it is true he was dating Tracy Ellis Ross after he filed for divorce?

Good. One less broken home.

I tried watching #BlackAF but couldn't get past the third episode. Too corny and unrealistic and Kenya's non-acting, toddler dressing ass looks like Droopy Dog to me. Plus all that shit talking about White people coming from the Jones woman who's half-white makes no sense to me.

I felt the same way, and I had a problem with the title "#BlackAF" when it should have been called #PrivilegedAF or Mixed AF. The cast was a mixture of racially ambiguous people of color - not necessarily "black", but "black-lite". Like, the title, topics, and cast didn't support my idea of what it meant to be "#BlackAF". I mean, I liked where Barris was trying to go conceptually, but the execution was too poorly done. The bad acting, cringe-worthy stereotypes, and then the way they "broke down" controversial topics like: slavery, colorism, and racism just felt very after-school-special like in a corny AF type of way.

Then, you have Rashida, who has always struggled with her racial identity, portraying his mixed-raced wife.

@Royal. Lol. You probably couldn't even be in the same room as my bandwidth.

@11:35AM. Glad you get where I'm coming from. They're BlackAF but nobody on that show looks BlackAF. There's absolutely no color diversity on that show but yet the average Black person's supposed to be able to relate? And what exactly is the message?

I don't understand how as a viewer I'm supposed to be empathetic with a very wealthy, privileged Black family with means where the mother is represented as a detached airhead and the father comes off as an entitled asshole who's obsessed with his worldly possessions and his gold chain. MAKES NO SENSE.

Y'all are better than me. What I saw looked like a more vulgar version of blackish. He sure does have a helluva fascination with light bright Black women.

Black AF was wack af to me. Glad he's staying with his wife who had however many kids. Makes sense.

Black AF is hilarious and all you commenting idiots are funny too but without money.

Tracy reminds me of her old t.v. character Joan from Girlfriend's. She strikes me as the type to go with a married man, the sneaky emotional whorish type. Yes, he's the married one, but God doesn't distinguish between the two adulterers and nor do I. I just couldn't hurt another woman, especially one with 6 kids by a man. Smh. He destroyed his nice little family over nothing. If he is still working with Tracey tell me how in the heck can his marriage move forward? Just stupid. His wife shouldn't have to tolerate his side pieces presence.
