I love this message, but I really love seeing men of color saying things like this—not because they are less likely to believe these things or more likely to support rape apologism, but because white people tend to be the ones who are gifed about serious issues, white people are the ones whose quotes get passed around with thousands and thousands of notes, white people are the ones whose words are taken seriously.
For a black person’s voice to be heard, it has to be stronger and clearer than a white person’s.
Too often, the only time black people get this kind of attention is just when they’re funny or fit into some stereotype—when they can play the part of Mammy or Independent Black Woman or Sassy Black Friend.

Audrey Hepburn was the granddaughter of a baron, the daughter of a nazi sympathizer, spent her teens doing ballet to secretly raise money for the dutch resistance against the nazis, and spent her post-film career as a goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, winning the presidential medal of freedom for her efforts.
