Idris Elba, “Sexy Doesn’t Apply to Black Men”
In a recent interview, actor Idris Elba spoke on why “Sexy doesn’t apply to black men.” When I first heard this, I immediately had to disagree but after hearing his reasoning behind the statement I can side with him on the subject.
“Black men, we’re never called sexy. We’re called athletic, intense, we’re described as being the strong type, the silent type. But we’re never really described as being sexy … in general the word “sexy” doesn’t apply to black men, particularly … The word has been thrown at me a few times, so if I have to say I own it, fine.”
…and fine you are!
