Michael Jai White is fed up with men cheating on their wives and infidelity in the black community so he’s poppin’ off in online rant, calling out alleged adulterers Bill Cosby, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rev. Jesse Jackson, Sr. Read his passionate open letter inside….
Chocolate City star Michael Jai White was feeling some type of way about issues in the black community, so he hopped on his Facebook account to let out some thoughts that have been running through his head.
In a long rant posted to his page, Michael pops off about the black community "accepting" infidelity. Not sure what he means by the community "accepting" it. Then, he goes on to drop names and he called out a few notable names.
He goes in on Cosby saying:
“Then there's the omnipresent and all powerful "THEY!" T.H.E.Y., I call them, The Honkeys For the Eradication of Y'all! "They" set up Bill Cosby! Oh sure. If he never drugged anybody he's still the most self righteous, judgmental and biggest known serial adulterer we've ever known without relying on our creativity and analogy to paint him differently. The truths as to his genius to the entertainment industry have as much relevance to his case as us giving Jeffrey Dahmer credit for the people he DIDN'T eat. My bad for the comparison because Dahmer admitted his crimes. Being an Actor from NYC, I as well as countless others know how "busy" Cosby was in the 80's and believe me, "THEY" knew it too but "THEY" never came out with the headline "Americas Most Beloved Father Is Cheating His Black Ass Off," did THEY? If THEY wanted to take Cosby down wouldn't that be the best time? I've identified this for years as the one double standard that black men enjoyed over whites! Let Seinfeld be married and do that shit! Lol. Remember Hugh Grant was practically destroyed from one encounter with a hooker?”
Then, he blasts MLK, Rev. Jackson & Cosby…again:
"I'm a black man who's disturbed by the fact that we can have infidelity in our lives and it NOT BE A BIG DEAL! It's like society is saying being faithful is above black men and below whites. MLK, Jessie Jackson, Cosby... the list goes on."
He goes BACK in on Cosby:
"Cosby stopped being a hero to me as soon as I learned he was living a lie as a faithful man, period. Lesson is: Power should not go unchecked and he could've been Man enough not to embarrass his family. Funny thing is, I'll bet Fat Albert, Theo or any of the Cosby kids have had episodes about the virtues of being truthful and that hiding the truth comes at the liars detriment. I think if you can give praise when praise is due, you can give shame when shame is due and no one is above or below either.”
Hmm...wasn’t he accused of cheating on his ex-wife with former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Claudia Jordan a few years ago? Hmph.
He has since married his now wife Gillian White. The newlyweds jumped the broom last summer in Thailand.
