    WOW! I just woke up to this article in my inbox! Watch the video interview with Yusaf Mack on Philly's FOX 29! Click the link below!

    Now Yusaf Mack Says He's Gay

    Some excerpts from the article:

    “I’m gay, I’m tired of holding it in, it is what it is, I live my life, I’m gay,” said the 35-year-old Mack who says he has known this for “about eight years.”

    Mack says news of the tape “hurt” him and made him suicidal. Additionally, his oldest daughter (of 10), a 23-year-old, told him to kill himself because he embarrassed the family.

    Mack says he no longer wants to kill himself, though. “I’m free, I’m happy.” He’s no longer engaged to his fiance of five years. “She was good to me, I was good to her, but it was a lie,” he says.

    “The truth is out, and I’m sorry,” Mack told the public. “You gon’ like me or love me regardless. I’m still me. So when you see me on the streets, I’m still Yusaf Mack.”

    I can't with him yesterday, today and tomorrow. He's not straight. He needs to move on. #JesusChrist

    See...while this did happen, I don't judge him for it because we've all been guilty of a lie at one point or another. I know I didn't get married, or have several kids or lead a girl on but I understand why he did it. I understand why he lied. I've been lying to my parents about my sexuality since they asked me after college why I don't have a serious girlfriend. I empathize with him. If you ever watched Miles (aka Siir Brock) on Sway In The Morning radio show, you will see the reactions he got from callers live on-air. It is stuff like that which keeps brothas from coming out. All the ridicule, all the hate, all the backlash... If people (especially in the black community) could learn to stop being homophobic, people would not be so scared to come out and be themselves. That's just the truth.

    It is unfortunate that his stuff was publicized to the world but you see why he did it. At least he owned up to his lies. Many men out there are still getting married, having many children or leading women on...

    True, but I'm not trying to hear him say next week that he's pansexual or "he's not defined by labels" or back to saying that he is bisexual and it gets him some type of media spin. At this point, everyone knows that he is in a gay porn flick and that he's not straight. I'm just drained, probably because of social media. Forgive me Mr. King...lol

    This is why @ockydub 's article is important. This man had a path that white most of us wouldn't have taken we should be able to understand where he's coming from even if you disagree with the way he decided to handle things.

    He was in a relative spotlight, in the sports world, in one of the most aggressive sports there is. I think he was trying to prove his manhood. I don't think he had to do things the way he did as far as the kids and such.

    But I'm thinking now in the back of his head, as crazy as this may sound, he wanted to do the porn knowing that it would come out eventually and he'd have some form of release [did not mean the pun this time]. However, the people who were close to him have dropped him which is the fear so many back men have.

    We can be strong, masculine, bold, and as tough as we want to but we all want a support system.

    I think this is the final revelation. It was like an accelerated version of a guy trying to save face when his parents catch him watching porn. First he made excuses, then he claimed he was bi so he could still claim that he liked women, and finally he admitted to being gay. (Note that I'm not one of those guys that says bisexuals are just gays in denial; just acknowledging that it's a step that many take on their way to admitting they're only interested in the same sex.) I think he'll be in complicated mental and emotional spaces for some time, especially if he's lost friends and a fiance and is getting dissed by his children. I hope he has someone in his corner.

    Consider this, Yousef Mack is one man that has come to some level of notoriety. How many other men do you believe are out their living like this?

    Also, is he really Gay, or did he say "Gay" because often it is easier to come out as gay than "Bisexual". However, inevitably, we have to take him for his word. So, he's gay.

    I would love understand his mind and life: Emotionally what he has gone through? Why so many women and kids.? I bet understanding his emotional/sexual progression would probably help many many brothers out there.

    I think we agree for the most part African king. I just want to bring up one point not necessarily to you but to anyone reading this. Some people are saying that yusef had 10 kids and got engaged to cover up his secret lifestyle. I would have stopped after 1 kid if that was my motive. And why get engaged after having all those kids. Doing things for money? Who would go as far as being in a Homosexual porno? No one performs that comfortably on the first time. So he really did it for the money, but after seeing a portion of the scene it was clear that 'man on man' sex wasn't something new to the brotha. I agree with you and Ocky that society needs to cut the brotha some slack. I feel for him and his family. No family members should find out the truth about the man in this way. He got paid, but is the money enough to pay for the emotional damages. Life is f@#ked up! Somebody give that brotha some love!

    I hear you man. An old saying is: to love me is to love me! And the LGBT community accepts gay men before bisexual men.

    And can we also help this brother with some money management?

    I'm wondering what his skills are? Would he be OK with using this buzz to spin it to an income stream? Doing club appearances and such?

    If that's too much for him to handle boxing classes or self defense classes marketed to gay men? Personal training?

    He's got at least 9 responsibilities if the 23 year old isn't due child support,not knowing what the other kids ages are. This guy needs stable income and support.

    I see Ilanya in is future for for real.

    You made some good suggestions. Especially the one about self defense classes. Maybe we can get the message to him.

    It just goes to show you how demented many black people are. You can be almost anything in the black community and people still love you, a drug dealer, murderer, rapist, dead beat dad with multiple baby mamas, just don't be gay.

    For sure. For people like Yusaf Mack and Miles, it can't be easy. Not sure if Mr. Mack has social media but Miles gets so much negativity. More love but still so much negative. #PopBottles

    He better pay them babies what's due them and pop a bottle of Sam's Choice.

    He can get a bottle of Boone's and a can of fruit cocktail and have hood sangria. He gotta learn how to ball on a budget. Lol
