The following season, he became the first Black actor to play an English monarch for the RSC, taking the title role in Henry VI.

Personally, I'm not into fashion "trends," period. Bcause I don't have the time nor the money to buy a new wardrobe each time a new season arrives, I tend to buy investment clothing made with quality fabrics that can worn season after season. As far as I'm concerned, as long as a man has on clean clothes, he is dressed conservatively (with a little bit of style to him), then he looks good to me.

I've been monitoring this debate, and apparently, both of you are trying to convey a similar message: Be more realistic. Black women: you can't have the Denzel look-alike with a six figure salary. And Black men: You can't have the tiny-figured Halle Berry look-alike who waits on you hand and foot. So I have a question for readers.

I agree with you that Pam is hotter than Gina...at least physically hotter. The problem is that Pam is dark-skinned (not that it's anything wrong with it), Gina is lighter-skinned, and that when you usually have TWO good-looking black women together (of different complexions), they have to be competitive to a point. Also, the darker-skinned character Pam is unfortunately casted as a "sapphire", a shrewish selfish, inconsiderate black female character. Besides, knowing about the skin color...
