Taye Diggs Clarifies Statement After Backlash
The internet blazed with anger after Taye Diggs said he didn’t want his son to be identified as Black.
The loving father cleared up the statements in a short interview with TMZ.
‘His mother is white. His father is black, and I want him to be proud of who he is, and be able to on his own terms, include both parents. I want my son to be able to choose, what he wants to be referred to, I don’t want him to have to disinclude his mother. His mother is white. His mother is a part of his make up, and the buck stops there…It’s that simple.’
When asked how he would feel if his son decided to self-identify as White, the actor said,
‘I would say, well then, good luck with that, but that’s his choice. If somebody came to him and said ‘You are White,’ I would defend him and say, well your daddy’s black as well so don’t forget that.’
