Mehcad Brooks: True Dat

In case you didn't know - the hottest thing on TV has been True Blood. I won't even lie, I just finished watching Season 1 for the fifth time and though Season 2 just ended I'm already on countdown to the release date. I love the fact that there is a black gay face on the show (that's what drew me to the show in the first place). But looks like there are more reasons for loving the show. Mehcad Brooks who plays Egg on True Blood just gave mad props to the gay marriage agenda.

Here is the quote from Michael, "I haven’t even gotten that far (thinking about settling down). But yeah, I want a wife, I want kids. The whole thing. But I’m also not even concerned with marrying somebody until it’s legal for everybody to get married. And what I mean by that is the whole Prop 8 thing. I find it really offensive. I just find it really problematic when you start throwing people’s rights away. Until we get our gay brothers and sisters back into a realm of consciousness that everyone else is in, it’s just not right. A woman who’s getting married — it’s probably going to be a gay man who made her dress, and a gay man who’s doing her hair and makeup, but he can’t get married. How messed up is that?"

And they say blacks folks hate gay people. Well there you have it - doesn't sound like hate to me. Great to hear reaffirming attitudes and action by our black straight allies. Contrary to popular opinion they do exist.
