Piggybacking on AG - a scarf or ascot on a Black man when it's NOT COLD is ALWAYS a red flag! We just don't dress like that!
That's interesting because I was watching an old episode of Dave Chapelle the other night, and his musical guest was "Big Boi," one of the group members of the popular rap group, Outkast. He was wearing an outfit that was very similiar to the White dude's outfit that I described earlier in the discussion. But instead, the artist Big Boi wore a black velvet blazer with padded elbows, crisp white shirt, relaxed jeans, etc. Is Big Boi "gay?" I also spotted Will Smith wearing a velvet blazer recently in a magazine worn with jeans, and Kanye West tends to dress like White boys too, colorful pink, yellow, pastel prep clothes, etc. are these Black men "gay" too?
Why do Black men outside of the entertainment industry tend to equate dressing up with looking "gay?" Adding style and creativity to your wardrobe is NOT BEING GAY!
