because you know, you gout shows like Martin that was
shot in Detroit and a other.

It was based on Detroit, but not shot in the base.

Yeah, so the show was not shot in Detroit.

Speaker 7 (00:51):
Okay, But they used to have a tax incentive in Michigan,
which they don't have anymore, and New Jersey has a
tax incentive, so that's where we shot. But we got

Speaker 7 (03:21):
So the show is about it's a real fun way
into a private investigator show.

Speaker 4 (03:25):
It's crazy, it's from my mind.

Speaker 7 (03:28):
But I played Dr Bricklan. She's a school teacher. She's
having a rough time. She's going through any emotional divorce.
She's divorcing Morri's Chestnut character played by More Chessnut. That's
what's going to ask. And I've seen More's Chestnut close
up close.

Speaker 3 (03:44):
And even looking at him from fall.

Speaker 4 (03:48):
What is going on?

Speaker 7 (03:49):
Because a lot of people have been commenting under stuff
like oh so you got Charlemagne in here?

Speaker 4 (03:54):
What is that about?

Speaker 5 (03:55):
People got theirs saying that he pays them to go
on and.

Speaker 1 (03:59):
Say, don't do that.

Speaker 4 (04:00):
So do you see it? Is that your thing where
you're like.

Speaker 1 (04:03):

Speaker 9 (04:08):
Don't ever insult me when they say I look like
Mars or Marris look like me?

Speaker 1 (04:11):
You know?

Speaker 7 (04:12):
But who is they like? Who's who is saying this?
I just am curious and then I'm gonna give you
my take on it. People just people out here, just
like if you're walking down the tree, someboe say, is
that Morris?

Speaker 1 (04:28):
They really don't get confused for us.

Speaker 7 (04:30):
Okay, let me be very honest looking at you in
person and please say Moors in person and loving him
the way that I do, I can see it. I
honestly feel like.

Speaker 1 (04:44):
You let her cook.

Speaker 4 (04:45):
Let me start.

Speaker 1 (04:46):
Let her cook cook.

Speaker 4 (04:47):
When you start with this.

Speaker 7 (04:48):
Morris is one of those people that's gonna be fine
to the day he dies. He's a beautiful creature inside
and out. It penetrates out from him. It's obnoxious. Actually,
he gets on my nerves with that. He's not aging
the whole. So he is in a class over here
to himself.

Speaker 6 (05:04):
Right.

Speaker 7 (05:05):
However, I could see you being you know, uh, not
Morris Chestnut, but but Bori's Chestnut or Lawrence Chestnut, like.
I could certainly see that y'all are from the same tribe.

Speaker 3 (05:20):
Do you wanna put up some glasses?

Speaker 1 (05:22):
Yeah, we couldn't see if there was a family reunion,
I could be that.

Speaker 4 (05:25):
I'm looking at you.

Speaker 7 (05:26):
I didn't see it until I'm looking you dead in
your in your face, but your eyes, your nose, your
your lips, I could see same, tried.

Speaker 6 (05:32):
Did you see him be full?

Speaker 1 (05:33):
Could you stop hating before?

Speaker 5 (05:35):
What?

Speaker 1 (05:35):
I don't see the point of this hate before we.

Speaker 4 (05:37):
Saw him in person? No, I wouldn't.

Speaker 3 (05:39):
It's like years because marsh.

Speaker 6 (05:43):
And after beautiful creature like you said. Yeah, but did
you see Charlemagne and God before?

Speaker 4 (05:48):
I've known Charlemne to God since when I mean since childhood.

Speaker 1 (05:52):
Right, Oh my god, Yeah, what is the point?

Speaker 7 (05:56):
Did you have plastic surgery to look like More?

Speaker 6 (06:00):
Yes, just showed up one day, like, who's this man?

Speaker 7 (06:05):
You know what I'm saying, don't let it, but but
I do see it. But but back to the show, Patrick.

Speaker 6 (06:15):
About very hilarious. There's no way More's anything.

Speaker 3 (06:21):
Looks like that.

Speaker 4 (06:22):
No way in hell, I'm saying a cousin, y'all.

Speaker 7 (06:26):
I'm not saying, Okay, thank you. So I'm playing this
character who's going through this divorce and you know, she's
having her time. Her friends are like, you got to
get back out there, and so she gets back out there.
She goes on tender and meets a guy that she
immediately is infatuated with. They have a great connection, and

(06:47):
he goes her. So it's a wamp wamp and then
she's feeling like, no, I feel like it was real.
And so my character goes to try to figure out
what happened where he is and discovers that he might
be at the center of.

Speaker 4 (07:00):
A decade's old cold case that needs to be solved.

Speaker 7 (07:03):
And so now I take all my friends with me,
and we got to solve the solve the mystery.

Speaker 9 (07:08):
Where did the idea from the show come from? Was
it something that happened in Detroit?

Speaker 7 (07:12):
Yes, yes, there was a there's a true crime aspect
to it. I mean the idea of wanting to play
a black female PI has been with me for a
long time. I loved my granny, you know, I used
to sit up under her and watch murder she wrote
and that, and I loved the idea. I felt like,
where's the black woman in all of this. We're the
ones that know how to solve things. Are intuition so strong,

(07:33):
the way we look at a situation and can figure
it out in two seconds over glass of wine. I'm like,
we would make dope investigators. And I wanted to see
that Jessica Fletcher kind of character that was better dressed
with better friends, you know, with funnier friends, and was
maybe a little bit hornier. And so that's sort of
where the idea came from for that. But then there
was a true crime case in Detroit that really affected

(07:56):
me when I was a kid. It was a little
boy who went missing. I was a kid, and I'm like, damn,
kids can go missing, Like that's that's not cool, you know,
And I listened to all the chatter of the old
folks around me, like, I think his mom must have
had something to do with this. This is bizarre, you
know how he just disappeared from the law, and then
right before a pandemic, this grown man walked into a

(08:17):
Detroit police station and he said I'm him, I'm this
little boy that's gone missing. It was a big story
and for me, I was like, I remembered it instantly.
I was refreshing the the news, you know, online.

Speaker 4 (08:30):
Trying to see what happened.

Speaker 7 (08:31):
And finally they took his DNA and they discovered that
the guy was, in fact nuts you.

Speaker 4 (08:37):
Know what I mean.

Speaker 6 (08:40):
No, he was wild.

Speaker 7 (08:41):
He was yeah and exactly and it was like a
womp womp, and it made me crack up.

Speaker 4 (08:46):
Honestly.

Speaker 7 (08:46):
I was like, that's so damn Detroit, Like this dude
just decided he was gonna wake up, going to the
police station and just talk a bunch of shit to me.
It was a tone that was captured about the city
of Detroit where you feel like it's gonna be sad
or tragic, but a lot of times it just turns
out to be funny. And you were just wilding and
that sounded like that, that version sounded like a TV movie.

Speaker 1 (09:08):
That was.

Speaker 4 (09:10):
Did you try the tob Capital of the World.

Speaker 6 (09:12):
Yes, absolutely, every day.

Speaker 4 (09:14):
You do, girl plug love what.

Speaker 7 (09:18):
Oh wow, I've seen more than I have everything. So
so I really so that, So that little boy stuck
with me, and I really wanted to know what would
happen if the little boy had been kidnapped or something
that he came back, What would his story be, where would.

Speaker 6 (09:35):
He have been?

Speaker 7 (09:36):
And so that kind of this the the show is
kind of a fictionalized version of working that out in
my imagination.

Speaker 9 (09:43):
Wait a minute, so on, so did you was a
school teacher?

Speaker 4 (09:48):
Yeah, it's a lot.

Speaker 9 (09:50):
Media guy intended going today have sex with him. He
goes you, you realize he's been kidnapped, so you go
looking for him.

Speaker 3 (09:57):
So now she's a a little boy.

Speaker 6 (09:58):
But the sex was amazing.

Speaker 7 (10:00):
What you mean because he oh, well, I can't really
give that away, but it's related to that.

Speaker 4 (10:05):
It's related to that story. But you got to watch
it till grown man. He's kidnapped as a grown man.

Speaker 1 (10:10):
Maybe he just went back home in his family.

Speaker 7 (10:12):
Maybe maybe you got to check it out because that
happens out here too. Absolutely yes, that happens too.

Speaker 1 (10:25):
Now, why is it important for you to highlight Detroit life, you.

Speaker 7 (10:28):
Know, as a writer, it's what I know, is what
I know intimately. I feel like, you know, you brought
up my brother. I've been in I've been in a
lot of different rooms. I'd say, like I grew up
with my mom, who was a single parent. We grew
up in Section eight, you know. But then at the
same time, you know, my brother was mayor. He was
elected just as I was graduating from high school. And

(10:52):
so I've been to a lot of really fancy parties,
been to a lot of nice things, and so I
think there's not that many people who have traveled Detroit
extensively as I have. I've been in almost every kind
of room you can you can't imagine. So when I
was with my grandmother in the hood where she was,
you know, storming into the crackhouse across the street to
get her TV back, you know, I've been on that street.
And then I've been at a you know, inauguration or whatever.

(11:15):
So I feel like really well placed to talk about
the city. Yeah, that you were with Felicia Richard as well,
how was that?

Speaker 4 (11:22):
I love her, you know, It's so funny.

Speaker 7 (11:25):
She's such a queen, like everybody talks about that regality,
that air that she has about her is so real.
We were talking about it's funny because Kiky Palmer was
saying like she wasn't keeping it real as Claire Hugsable,
like she was keeping it real like she really is.

Speaker 4 (11:39):
That's who she is.

Speaker 7 (11:40):
She just she just brings such a queenliness to her
to everything she does. And it was a dream come true.

Speaker 3 (11:46):
Yeah, I had a cursing to her.

Speaker 4 (11:47):
We had her saying all kind of stuff.

Speaker 7 (11:50):
Yeah, she was talking about how she her character claims
to have fucked all the all the original members of
the Temptation.

Speaker 9 (11:56):
You know what's so funny that that clip went viral. Yeah,
and it took a while to realize this wasn't really
her talking. I don't somebody the way somebody send it
to me.

Speaker 1 (12:04):
I'm like, why police, you're talking like.

Speaker 7 (12:07):
Yeah, Well, I asked her because she was like, you know,
I knew them, you know, they were my friends. So
I asked her like, how many of them do just
sleep with? Did you sleep with any of them? And
she was like do you I know.

Speaker 9 (12:17):
That?

Speaker 7 (12:17):
Listen, guys, this is my toxic trait. I ask inappropriate questions.
I also like to get down to it. I do
not like like casual. I don't like small talk, laptopple.

Speaker 5 (12:34):
Please don't even read them. I'm gonna read it.

Speaker 4 (12:40):
I'm gonna read it. Bori's chestnut.

Speaker 1 (12:41):
I'm gonna read it, said one of my favorite people.
I want you to know that.

Speaker 9 (12:45):
Thank you definitely, just because you said you look halfway
like more.

Speaker 7 (12:51):
But you know what's funny same. I was watching you
on something recently where you were talking about doing ayahuasca,
and I said to my husband, I was like, I
think I'm gonna do I wasking out and he was like,
he's been doing it, but he hasn't been doing.

Speaker 4 (13:02):
It for a while.

Speaker 7 (13:03):
So he was like, it took Charlemagne the God Way
to do ayahuasca. I've been telling you about this since
the nineteen years we've been together, him nineteen years and
never tried it, never tried it. I'm I've been a
I think you have to be ready. It has never
I've never felt ready. But also I'm very sensitive. I'm
just a super sensitive person, and so I had a

(13:27):
experience once where he was doing it with some people
kind of outside of the house that I was in,
and I threw up in the house, so I hadn't
drunk it.

Speaker 4 (13:36):
I don't know if it was the smell.

Speaker 7 (13:38):
I don't know if it was just the closeness to
it of the proximity to it, but I threw up,
so I was like, that's that's wow, that's a lot.

Speaker 4 (13:46):
So I wanted to be really really ready.

Speaker 1 (13:47):
Wife and I did it together. Yeah it was a guy.

Speaker 4 (13:50):
Yeah, yeah.

Speaker 7 (13:52):
I mean the way that you put it specifically about
you felt like you saw yourself without any ego, without
any ego at attachment. That sounded attractive to me. So
I'll let you I'll keep you posted on how that goes.

Speaker 1 (14:06):
That's what's up.

Speaker 9 (14:07):
I can't believe that you let this character sleep with
one a man one time after one time, after one date.

Speaker 4 (14:13):
Yeah, I think.

Speaker 7 (14:17):
I think it can I think you know, you know, yeah,
you know, you know. I mean, you don't know they're
gonna miss him, but you know, Like I also think
the older you get to you know what you're looking for.
Like when you're young, it's it's different, you're trying things out.
But once you when you're dating older and you know
who you really are I think when you found what
you need, it's like it can be pretty instant.

Speaker 6 (14:42):
You like, I don't know, I.

Speaker 9 (14:44):
Mean, not enough to go hunting for him after first, Yeah,
because he could just go.

Speaker 1 (14:50):
To you like you.

Speaker 7 (14:51):
But you know what, here's the thing that's true, and
that's what she has to find out. And I think
that's the deeper part of the story is that you know,
the character is going through a divorce, she's feeling very insecure.
She really needs to get to the bottom of this
mystery to know if it is her and she needs
to go doing some more self reflection or if it
was really what she thought it was.

Speaker 9 (15:09):
What I find interesting because you know, they tell you
whether you're in therapy or just in life, like you
should have an open.

Speaker 1 (15:14):
Communication with your partner.

Speaker 8 (15:15):
Yeah, so you're soon to be ex husband Mary chestnutt
Yes comes to you and says, hey, he wants to
have an open marriage, and you automatically think he's cheating.

Speaker 1 (15:28):
Yeah, yeah, why would you think he's cheating. He just
came to you what he desires.

Speaker 7 (15:33):
Well, the character thinks he she is cheating because anybody
that's asking for an open marriage. I think she's just
feeling like that's fishy. Don't you think out the blue
if somebody's like, we haven't agreed upon that, that hasn't
been our thing, and then you're like, oh, let's let's
try out of nowhere.

Speaker 4 (15:47):
That seemed fishy.

Speaker 1 (15:48):
No, how long has the character's been together on the show.

Speaker 7 (15:51):
They've been married for I think it's like it doesn't
say in the show, but I think in the writer's
room we talked about them being married for like five
or six years.

Speaker 6 (15:57):
Oh no, yeah, that's get me a question, Like yea, yeah,
I get it.

Speaker 4 (16:03):
Yeah, But we're we're excited about the show.

Speaker 7 (16:05):
We're excited that, you know, we did like a whole
round of press and now there's been like Emmy buzz
around the show, which is crazy because we're such an underdog.
I mean that the the show is on b ET Plus,
which you know, only has a few million subscribers, and
some of the shows we're up against have millions and
millions of subscribers, and so we're just trying to get

(16:26):
the word out for people to watch and support. And
I think it's a beautiful thing because you know, b
ET has in some ways gotten a bad rap for
some of the programming in the industry, like people love,
people love the shows, but a lot of times they're
made really quickly, and and so we really, we really
wanted to craft this show and make bring a show
to a black audience that was prestige, that was premium,

(16:50):
that could be on any platform. And so we've just
been to yeah, and it's a beautiful way into it.
So yeah, we're just excited that people are showing us
so much love and still find in the show.

Speaker 9 (17:01):
I said, so there's still a stigma attached with being
with bet you tell me. We didn't want the stigma.
It was just some things we didn't like that what
they were doing, and it was just like, hey, we'd
rather just not be a part of it. You know.

Speaker 4 (17:20):
It's funny.

Speaker 7 (17:21):
There are some tweets and I still call it, We'll
always call it Twitter, but there's some tweets where people
will say this show is actually good or like wow,
y'all this is actual, like it's a lot of actual
and they're shocked, and I'm like, why y'all so shocked?
And you know, I do think that that wasn't always
the business model.

Speaker 4 (17:41):
I do think that now.

Speaker 7 (17:42):
You know, Kenya Barris, who's our EP when he called
and said I'm going over to be ET Studios. He
was very clear that they that they now want to
make some prestige program programming by black creators, and they
have put you know, their money where their mouth is.
In our case, y'all check it out and tell us
if the stigma is still there. But I'm excited to
be a part of trying to change it.

Speaker 9 (18:02):
Yeah.

Speaker 1 (18:02):
It just breaks my heart because BT didn't start like.

Speaker 9 (18:05):
That, like you know, when I think of like Real
Husbands of Hollywood and uh being married Jane, Like, they
had that level of programming at one point, then they
went away from it, and now they have it.

Speaker 1 (18:17):
But they put it on BD plus because it's like
your show beon Cole Show. Yeah, it's Pat Show. Yeah,
why we have more original program on Linear?

Speaker 4 (18:25):
I don't know.

Speaker 7 (18:26):
That's a I don't know why they do that, but
but b ET plus is shaping up to be a
little bit different from Linear and there, like you said,
average Joe Dion Cole Show, MS Pat is hysterical created
about her and Jordan Cooper. I mean, this is some
really great, great shows on there, and they're for everybody,
you know, but it is true.

Speaker 4 (18:43):
I think of b Et.

Speaker 7 (18:44):
I think of my mom watching like Tivia Smiley at
Night and Black Us and all that kind of stuff,
And so you know, there's still room for there to
be some meaningful art made.

Speaker 1 (18:54):
Tyler programming too.

Speaker 9 (18:55):
Yes, yeah, Now is it hard to play a character
whose love life is all over the place when you've
been married.

Speaker 4 (19:01):
It's great, it's great. I love it so much.

Speaker 7 (19:05):
Yes, I've been married for nineteen years. I don't want
drawm in my relationship. I don't want to go out
on meeting these dudes off of a tender and that
y'all be doing.

Speaker 4 (19:14):
I don't want to do.

Speaker 6 (19:15):
That, so I like to ignore that y'all.

Speaker 7 (19:20):
Damn we're all happy to marry here, right, Yes, I
will be. But I know I heard it's so cute.
We were talking about that today. Your your cute little
photo shoots.

Speaker 1 (19:33):
Yeah.

Speaker 7 (19:33):
No, I like to have all that fun uh on
the show and not in my actual life.

Speaker 6 (19:39):
Don't feel good.

Speaker 5 (19:39):
You can just go home and not be like you know,
you can leave that there, Yes, and they go home
and then talk about it with your husband.

Speaker 7 (19:46):
Yes, that's amazing, exactly. I do not want to be
out in these streets at all.

Speaker 9 (19:50):
So nothing ain't nothing out here. I say that all
the time too. I'm so glad I'm not. I don't
have to be in these streets.

Speaker 4 (19:56):
Yeah, it's it's it's no fun out there. So I'm good. Yeah.

Speaker 9 (20:04):
At this point, you don't know if people want you
for you or you because they see you on this
BT plus show.

Speaker 4 (20:10):
I don't know if anybody's trying to come up. I
don't know.

Speaker 7 (20:15):
I just I just am very happy. I'm at my
husband in college, you know, and he worked on the
show as well, and so we we have a great
working relationship. We have a great marriage.

Speaker 1 (20:25):
We have a.

Speaker 4 (20:26):
Beautiful little boy.

Speaker 7 (20:28):
I never it's funny my husband is white, and I never,
I know, I never.

Speaker 4 (20:35):
I never. Oh somewhere.

Speaker 1 (20:40):
Doctor whom just popped into.

Speaker 4 (20:43):
Hysterical, where's he from? He's from the bay.

Speaker 7 (20:46):
Let me just say something different happened to the white
people in a bay.

Speaker 4 (20:50):
They're just they're just I mean, they're just cool. They're
just better.

Speaker 6 (20:55):
Yeah, they're just better.

Speaker 7 (20:57):
But I definitely grew up in like a black nationalist
Pan African, very very black household.

Speaker 1 (21:07):
Don't want to hear it, don't want he's looking he's
looking at you right over there.

Speaker 4 (21:10):
Well my dad. My dad is probably right with him,
you know, so it was.

Speaker 7 (21:15):
I just think it's funny, like the universe is hysterical,
and the universe kind of sends you whatever you need
to grow. They say, you know, anything you hate, anybody
you hate, will wind up in your family.

Speaker 4 (21:27):
And I think I think that I brought him home.

Speaker 1 (21:31):
I said, guess what, y'all.

Speaker 4 (21:34):
Universe wants us to grow.

Speaker 7 (21:36):
You know, the first time he came, I did try
to play that Guess who. I tried to play guess who.
Jesus my dad was looking. My dad was not amused.

Speaker 3 (21:45):
How did your family take him when your first time
you brought him?

Speaker 7 (21:47):
You know, I think it's always the sex of the parent,
that's your partner that gets more more upset, Like your
dad wants you to bring home a man like him.

Speaker 3 (21:57):
There's another SI I know, a white man, but that's
another series.

Speaker 7 (22:03):
Well I tried, I tried to sell that when the
showtime that that that that one didn't go.

Speaker 1 (22:10):
Take your.

Speaker 3 (22:13):
But he was.

Speaker 7 (22:15):
I think it was a trip for him. My dad
was a black nationalist pan African preacher for many years,
and I think my mother just wanted me to be
loved well and wanted me to be happy. You know,
I think black women are coming around to that much
much faster. They're like, are you happy? Does he treat
you well? And she kind of was was good, but
over time I think, I mean, our wedding speech was

(22:38):
my my dad's wedding speech was all about how he
didn't speak to white a white person until he was
forty Jesus. But everybody's grown, and Miles is who I
fell in love with and who loves me back so much.
That is just you know, everybody's had to get get
over it.

Speaker 1 (22:58):
That's right.

Speaker 6 (23:00):
That would be like, I don't think that's gonna work.
Like your dad don't like me.

Speaker 4 (23:03):
He never my husband. No, Miles is like, Miles is
so down for the for the d R. Khil Patrick. No,
he was just he was.

Speaker 7 (23:12):
He said that my dad didn't really refer to him
as Miles for like the first ten years he called
him that guy.

Speaker 4 (23:18):
But it's more five years. I think it more five years.

Speaker 7 (23:24):
But yeah, no, we we're just we're good. We work,
we work well together and he's definitely my favorite white
person and it's helped me.

Speaker 4 (23:35):
MS Number two, Yeah.

Speaker 1 (23:38):
Are your mother in laws cooking?

Speaker 4 (23:40):
You know what? I lucked out. She could cook better
than I can. She could actually cook.

Speaker 7 (23:46):
She's from the South, and you know she makes greens
and corn bread, and you.

Speaker 4 (23:53):
Know she's what.

Speaker 6 (23:57):
Like the meat.

Speaker 4 (23:58):
She puts bacon in it, and to be honest, I
actually would prefer turkey bacon or no bacon.

Speaker 3 (24:04):
I know she puts in it.

Speaker 7 (24:06):
She puts pork in it. She and she says she
has to make it with the pork too, because I've
asked her. But no, she's not bad. She's not bad
at all. Right, Yeah, they cook better than I do.

Speaker 9 (24:17):
You almost had this d We was gonna watch the show.
You had a lot of people, stop, you appreciate right? Wait?

Speaker 7 (24:34):
Wait wait wait wait is y wait wait wait? I
want to know about this? Are you are black?

Speaker 9 (24:38):
Man?

Speaker 7 (24:38):
Is really still mad about black women of marrying white men?

Speaker 4 (24:42):
I really don't feel like y'all.

Speaker 3 (24:43):
Can't you know what asked this? As Charlamagne? Charlamane has
some daughters.

Speaker 4 (24:49):
This is a great question. Do they have white boyfriends?

Speaker 9 (24:54):
My oldest is fifteen, about to be sixteen, and I
have an eight year old, five year old.

Speaker 1 (24:58):
Two year old.

Speaker 7 (24:59):
Okay, so if the a ten year old came home
with a white white boy, what's your what you're saying
to her?

Speaker 1 (25:04):
I wouldn't like that.

Speaker 4 (25:05):
What would you say to her?

Speaker 9 (25:06):
I wouldn't say anything. But you know, to your point
what you said about your dad. I want to see
my daughter bring home somebody who looks like me. Because
I like black love. I'm not I'm not against interracial
relationships in any way, shape or form. Yeah, I just
like black love. I like seeing black men with black women. Yeah,
that's just my personal preference.

Speaker 6 (25:27):
Is around a lot of whites.

Speaker 4 (25:28):
But I was gonna say, what's she go to? What
school she goes to?

Speaker 1 (25:32):
I know she's still Choo's still in high school.

Speaker 4 (25:34):
Right, don't you go to a black school or white.

Speaker 1 (25:36):
School or definitely predominantly white.

Speaker 7 (25:38):
Yeah, So it's that's the thing. That's the hard part
is I think, you know, I met my husband at
n YU. I thought there would be black men there
that they are They're really weren't. Donald Glover was there.
I can't believe we never made out or nothing. I
don't know where Donald Glover was. Donald Glover, I mean
we were at n YU at the same time.

Speaker 6 (25:56):
Like that's something that you.

Speaker 1 (25:57):
Feel like he wasn't looking for you either. Man there
is my.

Speaker 7 (26:07):
That's my point is that there weren't a lot of
black dudes there, a lot of Asian and a lot
of the ones that were.

Speaker 4 (26:13):
Were queer who we love, but you know what you're.

Speaker 7 (26:16):
Gonna do with that? And and then a lot of
the black dudes that were there, we're looking. They were
breaking their next look as soon as they got off
the plane to look for for white women and the
Asian women and everything else. So I you know, I
feel like black dudes are would be like, yes, go
marry who makes you happy?

Speaker 4 (26:31):
Because we didn't. We didn't pick you.

Speaker 9 (26:34):
I think everybody I think you should marry who makes
you happy. You just asked me what I what I
like to see. I like to see black men with
black black women with black men, beautiful black family. Not
saying all families can't be beautiful. They can, of course,
you asked me what I like.

Speaker 7 (26:50):
Oh I can't wait. I want to have this conversation again.
When she gets to college to school. You better pray
for Howard because if she going you might be in trouble.

Speaker 1 (27:04):
I don't know. I'm not.

Speaker 9 (27:06):
It's not a thing where I'm gonna be like, oh
my god, I'm so upset and disappointed.

Speaker 3 (27:10):
But I'd be like, he'd be like, oh my god,
I'm so I think.

Speaker 7 (27:15):
But to be honest, I think that's that's natural, you
know what I mean? And I have a I have
a I have a mixed son. You know, I consider
him to be black because he came out of me.
But he we were at Disney we were at not
Disneyland Universal, and this little white girl was obsessed following
him around and he just kind.

Speaker 4 (27:33):
Of wasn't giving her no love. It's something to me
was like, yes, that's crazy, it's hypocritical. I get it.

Speaker 1 (27:39):
It's not because it's it's so many other coaches that
do that.

Speaker 9 (27:41):
Like, there's plenty of people want people. Indian want people.
Dominican wanted to make some Dominicans like that. But when
we say it, it's like, oh wow, wow, how dare you?

Speaker 7 (27:51):
I think it's anybody that has a beautiful culture. You know,
when you have a beautiful culture, you want to see
it continue to multiply and so and so I get that.
But for me, black love, for me starts with loving
myself and making sure that who I'm with treats me
well and loves me the way I deserve to be loved.
And so that's that's my black love. And and I'm
also rooting for for the black love that's thriving out

(28:14):
there and also depicting it in the show.

Speaker 6 (28:17):
Yeah, I'm glad you Mark is Miles.

Speaker 4 (28:22):

first met him? You thought he was just trying to
be cool.

Speaker 4 (28:27):
I thought he was trying to I thought he was
trying to be cool.

Speaker 7 (28:28):
He was, he was playing the guitar and saying his
name was Miles. But no, he his parents did actually
name him after Miles Davis.

Speaker 5 (28:36):
