Queen Sugar Actor Kofi Siriboe Responded Perfectly When a Fan Chastised Him For Praising Black Women

After Queen Sugar actor Kofi Siriboe tweeted powerful words about his love and respect for his mother and all black women fans responded with appreciation, but predictably some (not the black ones…) were upset.

Kofi: my beautiful mother is every reason i need to cherish, love, and protect my sisters. nobody will ride for you like a black woman. period.

Salty Fan: Really !! All good mums do those things no matter creed or colour!

Kofi: love & respect to all the good mums. i’m honoring my mom, my sisters and their bold, black skin. they deserve my specificity.

He then took to his Instagram page to elaborate on why he chose to focus his love and attention on women who look like his mother. He captioned his post “black women built the pedestal I’ll continue to put them on.”

Emmy nominated producer, Will Packer chimed in to cosign the tweets.

The status quo is for black men to clown and bash black women on social media, so it’s refreshing to see a black man be unapologetically vocal with his support.

Ladies, what do you think about the exchange?

  1. He is also a wise young man…..I know his sentiments are real…but he is also a student of history…He knows Black women will show up for you through thick and thin if you show up for us. We feel some special kind of way about Denzel Washington, Prez. Obama, Will Smith…that we will never feel about some others. I watched Nate Parker’s situation and the silence that came out of us….Remember when Wesley Snipes got into tax trouble…silence……..our loyalty is our currency…If you ride for us…we will be your ride or die….
