      LifeIsNotorious “Tar baby” Let me ask are you black? 🤔

    • LifeIsNotorious
      LifeIsNotorious 2 hours ago

      Locturally Locs a lot of light-skin women created dark-skin babies, but also it's mainly dark-skin women hating on light and caramel women. Caramel is just as good, but not better and be glad she's not toast black, or else they would have created a tar baby. You're no better than white women talking about other black women of different complexions. I bet his son won't date a dark women, so you better hope a beautiful rebone or brown woman, not a Kardashian or a blonde.

    Nearing 40 myself, Denzel has gotten older in the "game" but still gets me in the theater seats when he Blesses us with his performances. This Young fella, John David is his own man, and he has his own charm , which I like, but you can still "feel" and see the "charm" of his "pops" shinning through as the man who raised him. Man, being the key word here, that, there is a goodness, that one embodies, and in all one does, it shows. This is a rare thing these days, in my observation. So, I am thankful for this Dynasty of Actors, and more so, this Dynasty of "good men". Ill be seeing this "Spike Lee Joint" as I always do. BKNY baby!
