Hidin' in Plain Sight
Saw him a couple of weeks ago at a performance of "Porgy & Bess." Sitting in the orchestra next to an other African American guy.
They were dressed identically. Both had scarfs tied in the Euro knot.
I mean do the math! Over 40, openly against gay marriage "for religious reasons" and seeing a MUSICAL WITH ANOTHER MAN.

oh yeah, for sure.

Wow @ Smiley. Tsk tsk tsk. Another homophobic 'mo.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 2||04/19/2012|
Half the Black choir directors and preachers I've met are gay. Many closeted, often married. So much for "religious reasons."
|by DL in the ATL||reply 7||04/19/2012|
I love how the Euro not in the US means gay.
Not saying it's not true, but funny...

uggh the interviewer on television today
|by DL in the ATL||reply 11||04/19/2012|
Perhaps they are dressed alike because they just came from a church choir performance, Mr. Jump-to-conclusions-head.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 13||04/19/2012|
I bet he was a-sittin' next to Dr. West, his "brutha!"
|by DL in the ATL||reply 14||04/19/2012|
I think Tavis Smiley is fucking hot.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 15||04/19/2012|
Nahh, just a couple of dudes on the hunt for some pussy!
|by DL in the ATL||reply 16||04/19/2012|
Part of me, because he was just a row down from me, wanted to walk up to him and say: "MARY!"
|by DL in the ATL||reply 17||04/19/2012|
I think Cornel West is very sexy. That voice...
|by DL in the ATL||reply 18||04/19/2012|
They bumped into each other in Times Square and just decided on the spur of the moment that they would do a little shopping and then stand in line at TKTS for last-minute show tickets.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 19||04/19/2012|
I find him so pompous, windy, and pretentious that I really hope he's not gay. His hissy fits and snotty comments about Obama b/c Obama wouldn't kiss his ass were so offensive and stupid. And his show with West seems one step from Amos and Andy minstrelsy to me--but I think West is a Henry Louis Gates wannabe, without half the intellect, so he just substitutes a show-biz style. Gates is the real deal, and even Michael Eric Dyson has more going on than West.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 20||04/20/2012|
West was a self -described socialist (small "s") and he wrote a couple of books I read a long time ago, "Race Matters" and something else.
Suffice to say I found him adding up 2+2=6. He is an accomodationist and Tavis is an opportunist. They are both pompous asses. I really lost respect for Cornell West after he became famous and full of himself.

Smiley had Annie Potts from Designing Women on his show the other night and he told her that he watches Golden Girls. GAY!!!
|by DL in the ATL||reply 23||04/20/2012|
I'm pretty sure that Tavis Smiley is FOR gay marriage.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 24||04/20/2012|
Here's a clip where Smiley says he believes "marriage" is for a man + a woman. Fuck him.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 25||04/20/2012|
Tavis is pro gay! Stop stereotyping ever black person as homophobic. ASSHOLE!
|by DL in the ATL||reply 26||04/20/2012|
Great. One more reason to dislike him.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 27||04/20/2012|
Good news, I want him inside me.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 28||04/20/2012|
R26, stop the hate and watch the clip on R25 posted.
He is anti-gay marriage and a closet case.
I don't care what color he is... he's a self loathing mo and I am glad to call him out on it.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 29||04/20/2012|
Tavis (sic?) is a mush mouth!
|by DL in the ATL||reply 30||04/20/2012|
He was most likely with his assistant. He's not gay.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 31||05/01/2012|
If tavis & dumb getto dr west would except who & what they are.that means coming out of their deep dark closet & stop Blaming the president from not acknowledging them as credible democratic spokesmen or representatives , they just want attention.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 32||12/09/2012|
who cares - don't know how he has a talk show - terrible interviewer

[quote]Its not fair to accuse someone of being gay without facts to back up the accusation.
Fuck off you bigoted cunt. Just because your husband won't fuck you anymore doesn't give you the right to bash gays. Being gay isn't a bad thing. It's not an "accusation" you stupid cunt.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 37||12/09/2012|
Glad you got to it first, R37.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 38||12/09/2012|
Five of his friends know that he's gay, therefore he's out.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 39||12/09/2012|
[ Its not fair to accuse someone of being gay without facts to back up the accusation.]
Thanks, r37. "Accusation?" Like being gay is a negative thing to be "accused" of? Fuck you, asshole.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 40||12/09/2012|
Cornel needs his teeth fixed and beard trimmed.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 41||12/09/2012|
...has Smiley changed his tune on gay marriage?
|by DL in the ATL||reply 42||07/20/2013|
Tavis hasn't been hot since he shaved off his muzzy.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 44||07/20/2013|
I don't think he's hot but he's always pinged.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 45||07/20/2013|
He drives me crazy with his constant references to "black folk." Who the hell says that?
|by DL in the ATL||reply 49||11/02/2013|
Tavis is not gay but he is very private.He is dating a girl. That work w him and she is always. Black maleing him and he needs to get. Rid of her
|by DL in the ATL||reply 50||07/08/2014|
Blackmailing him over what?
|by DL in the ATL||reply 51||07/08/2014|
He is the classic "king Fish" and an extra windy one at that. I think he's very girlish on his interview show. Too big boned a heifer for my tastes.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 52||07/08/2014|
I kinda like him. I'd do him. But I like older guys.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 53||07/08/2014|
Welcome to my world, Tavis.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 55||02/27/2015|
The guests always seem ill at ease. Maybe it's the way he sits on the edge of the couch and stutters and brays. He's Arsenio without the humor.
|by DL in the ATL||reply 56||02/28/2015|
About six years ago, I remember vividly, a prominent local homophobic preacher, we'll call him Rev. Jones, was parked in the driveway of a home he thought was vacant at about 1 A.M. and the cops were called.
Seems he had some young man from his choir sucking his dick, and thought it was a safe place. The cops recognized him, and ticketed him for "loitering."
Ask me how I know. I was a civilian secretary working in the office of the Chief of Police and he got a confidential report about it. I loved that job, but I got laid off from it and moved out of state.
