          I was confused and disgusted by the play. I don't know if the experience would be different with a younger crowd or an audience of POC but I doubt it. I left with a feeling of ”WTF DID I JUST WATCH.” However, this interview provided me with a clearer understanding of the playwright. He is well versed in his craft and appears to be full of passion and purpose. I wish the interviewers saw the play before before bringing him on. I think they would have approached this interview with open eyes and asked questions pertaining to the play and Harris’ choices. Once they see it, they will have many questions. Hot97 should participate in giveaways to the play if the producers decide to have a POC only audience.

            This play is so disrespectful to the legacy of our ancestors

                The negative comments on here are really nasty! He's worked his ass off for this opportunity. The same things that some of you are accusing him of and arguing about, he's articulating it very clearly in this interview. Please unclog your ears and listen! And his sexuality is not making black men look weak or vulnerable! Check your insecurities at the door! Thank you! 🤬🤬🤬

                      Black millennials in their 30s are the worst. Especially since they grew up hating themselves. Us younger blacks can’t relate 💁🏾‍♀️

                        Shannon G trust me I can tell, that’s the way it’s supposed to be. Gen z will do great things that don’t involve continuously tearing our people down for white entertainment.

                        Actually this is right, he made a play for white people, to tell them what's wrong with them.

                        This is what white supremacy aims to produce....effeminate black males. He even said he felt kidnapped by white supremacy at 5 yrs old. There ya go

                          Classic example of using a black writer or producer or director to hide the racism and anti blackness of this play. Smh

                            Have you actually seen the play though?? It’s brilliant and SOOOOO pro-black.

                            But if the writer and director and playwright and producers and cast are black who is doing the "using"?

                            @A Machine Gone Grey He said himself he felt kidnapped by white supremacy at 5 yrs old and this is the type of brain/behavior that produces. The brain is a biological computer, input output.

                            Forgetting your history and pretending it didn't happen doesn't make us better... Understanding our slave history helps us understand what's happening now... talking about how Greta Martin Luther King does not stop oppression... Also learn your own history whatever this dude is writing about is not real African American history and is not what happened in the past

                        • Christopher ADOS Rosette

                          Jeremy O. Harris is a disgrace to the black race.

                          Anyone give him a platform are straight busters and anti-Black Americans.
