My heart is broken over the attack on brother @jussiesmollett The cowards that committed this vile and violent act against him may have thought they were assaulting HIS MANHOOD but really were displaying THEIR LACK of it!!! No MAN would willingly do something to damage or destroy another brother or sister. Despite anything that you may not like about that person; from their race, religion, culture or lifestyle. MEN don’t bully. But grown males who are stuck in the mental and emotional capacity of BOYS, who wants everything their way and despises anyone with opposing views, would! And lastly, a MAN doesn’t care whether you are heterosexual or homosexual. A Man cares about your character!!!! Homophobia will die when we matriculate grown males into Manhood!!!!! #CallOutMaleness #MaleVsMan #Manhood
