    He doesn’t have a preference for blacks. He’s hopped on both sides of the fence.

      He is aging like yogurt.

      Good actor, though.

    • WTF says:

      Really?? I mean he’s not ugly, but I honestly don’t see what’s so great about him. There are better looking white men. IDK why all the black chicks are crazy about him either. Just because he has a preference for black girls that makes him sexy I guess???? Dumb as fuck.
