John Boyega is the king energy every Black woman needs and deserves. 

The incredible 30-year-old British actor, who stays booked and busy, unapologetically loves and only dates Black women. 

John has been doing press for his latest [amazing] film, The Woman King, where he stars as Dahomey’s King Ghezo.

While visiting “The Breakfast Club,” John Boyega shared his preference for Black women saying:

I’ve said it openly, it’s just a preference…I like my women Black. 

Just separate from a political statement or anything like that. It’s just they fine as hell. 

Melanin levels gotta be over 75 percent. You know what I mean? 

Thickness gotta be there. Style gotta be there. We gotta laugh at the same jokes. We gotta bop to the same music. 

It’s just got to be a flow. 

John went on to share why he needs a Black woman.

I need her to understand a Black man’s anger and frustrations. 

I need her to understand when a certain dudes walk into the room and their energy ain’t right and she’s like, ‘Calm down, baby. Chill.’ 

I need that! I need me a Black woman.

John Bodega’s dating preference has sparked quite a bit of chatter, outrage, and he’s made headlines for it. 

He took to Twitter writing:

Always thought certain reactions to preference would only occur if you belittle other people while expressing what you like.

This would mean your preference is based on negativity.

Yet all I have expressed is my love for cultural familiarity and the positivity I feel. Interesting.

The streets of Twitter are celebrating this young king and standing 10 toes down with him the same way John stands 10 toes down with Black women.

I stan a Black King who stans for Black women!
