Falsely claiming identity theft--classy. Do you think he and Shaun King will hook up?

Im not surprised that Trump nominated officials headed up this effort to take him down.

A messy vindictive queen who associated with him back then probably tipped off the feds, Im sure. This stuff happened almost 10 years ago and he made it all the way to city council status with all this information not being uncovered already. Someone totally tipped them off.

It's really sad that he turned out to be a former stunt queen. Atlanta of all places should have a gay black man on the city council.

I take it he's not of Hispanic descent, but he's reminding me a bit of Aaron Hernandez. Will this story end the same way, but for different reasons?

Sad! He was so hot I was hoping he'd rise up through the ranks

In his stories on instagram he's been reposting messages of some supporters. Apparently he recently had some public fight with Keisha Lance Bottoms and his supporters are suggesting her people have targeted him so it's all political. Let's be real though...this fraud he committed was quite dumb

interesting how he lost a bunch of muscle over the last few years though.

BLM should weed out black politicians who abuse their power for financial gains. Especially ones who hide behind black empowerment while bilking money.

Atlanta is wear all my bad decisions and heartaches begin and (almost) end. If you're sexy and hot and built and ready, you can get away with a lot, for a while.

I prefer my men darker, like me. But I did enjoy me some of Antonio Brown. He's being framed. We must help him? Did you see how long it took him to turn that jacket into a knapsack? My beautiful brother has some cognitive disorder. He doesn't belong in prison. Stop with your racist fantasies.

Where you think he got that scar from fool? Do surgeons leave a scar like that? A little bullet hole in a man's ass cheek don't make a man imperfect either.

What are a few pieces of advice you would give to a young person looking to build their career? I would say to follow your heart, and to stop thinking about things and put action behind what you want to do. So many young people in this generation, they all think and talk about what they want to do, but no one takes necessary action to make it happen.

I have a soft spot for gay dudes who make mistakes on the way up but then right the ship. It is so hard for us. Every week at Datalounge is another thread that is representative of the catastrophe, hardship or high-drama that I think gays face collectively trying to get a foothold in a hostile, inhospitable world.

This guy wasn't a closeted, diseased queen actively working to erode the human rights of other gay men. He didn't kill anyone (I guess). He didn't directly rob taxpayers.

He deserves some small measure of grace.

r68 yes it is hard for us. I also think there is a lot of pressure, particularly in the black gay community. I think thats why Jussie lost his mind. We put a lot of pressure on each other and never feel good enough. That leads to these huge stunts that usually end up failing spectacularly in a very public way.

God. The ignorance of White people. You can’t make some of these comments up. I’m so happy I have a real education, which isn’t just a piece of paper but street smarts and common sense, something most of you lack. This is why you all will never be considered real New Yorkers, or real to any Major city you transplanted to. You lack that street smart common sense we who grew up here have.

If you can’t see how fishy the timing is for this, you’re blind.

by Anonymousreply 71Last Thursday at 10:11 PM

First off, he isn’t just black. So please stop that shit. He himself has said he is PART black but is not just black. He identifies with his Non black side too. He is mixed and it SHOWS. I’m tired of mixed people only being labeled one thing. If Darren Criss does not have to be labeled Asian, this guy shouldn’t be just “black”.

Second, he isn’t gay. He’s never been in a relationship with a man. He is open minded to the idea. That is all. He’s never ever disclosed his sexuality and when gay men hit on him he tends to ignore those comments. DL found some random site claiming he’s “gay” and ran with it. As usual.

If he were anything it would be “open minded to the idea” or “bi leaning more toward women”.

One of my best friends used to 'boost' merchandise from the luxury retailer where he worked as a cashier for years. He was caught and fired but (thankfully) not criminally prosecuted -- and only because he covered his tracks reasonably well. He has since turned himself around and is a source of support for his extended family and gives back to his community. I am so proud of who he has become. It wouldn't have happened if he went to prison.

What is the difference between "mixed" and "light"? You think black folks got lighter on their own? Light black folks are biracial as well it's just the mixing was down 4 or 5 generations back.

Exactly R99. And it's the same insane poster with the problems again. It's inherently racist. We're all a mix of things. Antonio is a hot man. Who identifies as black. Halle Berry has a white mother, but she identifies as black. Mariah Carey doesn't really mention it, but when she does she says she is biracial or mixed race. It is not for WHITE people to decide how the rest of us experience our lives, nor pass judgment on our "genealogy" based on how light skinned or dark skinned we appear. Not to mention to talk of features. WOW. The dude is asking for some purity test. There's enough colorism in the world already. That racist poster is obsessed about nothing. Does Antonio being black bother him? If so, why.
