Earlier this week, Michael B. Jordan did the simple but kind gesture of sharing a video for a song by singer and friend Nick Grant. The song is called “Black Woman.” But because there have been questions about Jordan’s dating preferences over the last few years, and whether or not he’s romantically interested in Black women, people had a lot to say about it in his comment section:
My bruh @nickgrantmusic w/ that new heat ????#blackwoman

Because of that, he decided to, yet again, address claims that he isn’t interested in Black women by speaking to Essence. and he reiterated, for the umpteenth time, that people have it all wrong.
“It’s so funny to everybody because it couldn’t be further from the truth,” he said. “My dad and my mom both said, ‘If they only knew.’ If they only knew. And that’s the thing that keeps me not tripping about it, you know what I mean?”
“Look at what I’m about as a person,” he added. “Look at my upbringing, my culture, where I come from. How could I not love and appreciate my own race?”
With that being said, while he may not often be seen canoodling and vacationing with sistahs, the actor does have love for them. So for those who give the 31-year-old a hard time and say he’s never seen with Black women, or just part of the crowd who fawns and gets hopeful whenever he’s photographed with one, hit the flip because this one’s for you.
