If today’s weather in alot our country & countries beyond an indication the way many our fathers in the world are seen...they are seen as shitty. That MOTHER nature got her messages don’t she? 😉 On the real fathers who look like me are especially seen as such. I am most proud the father i came from, the grandpapas he came from, the father i am & strive to be with a passion that beats any passion for my work away from hOme. That work course & my hOme benefit from my substantial flaws. But with the support my lil bro, founder @icontalks .. @johnburnsdc & his team JohnHartsfield, KadriekaMaiden, @mr.hermich (who made this ridiculous jacket for me, @the_earl__grantham VP @motionpictureassociation & SenatorChrisDodd the “Lees” my journey, my 1st boss Spike & my sis, Tonya and @iamdebralee , @thejilltraceyshow , my castmates @larenztate & @lala & the Tate bros (like my own), my own bro @_jamilhardwick_ , big bros @therealchrisspencer & @jefffriday & his @americanblackfilmfestival team, my GentJack #RealToReel partners, bros @kainon_jasper @affioncrockett @anthonyhamiltonficial @dennislawhite @kennylattimore , & yooou the fans @power_starz and our team & #ghOstmari , @bluapplepoetry @jtfoundation99 , @5000rolemodels & last but most the Queen @mrsjaeh who made me a Papa......the other “Mama” to me & legendary @repwilson made the now legendary statement that my GOODS substantially outweigh my bads. She honored me a Congressional Resolution for my work with the 100s thousands youth who ten come from homes not as blessed with present father figures. I am HUMBLED eternally.
