Actor Michael Jai White was in town filming the new season of “For Better Or For Worse” Season 6 on OWN.
During the interview he wanted to explain his frustration with African American men cheating on their wives and it being acceptable in the black community:
Even when people knew about it… people wouldn’t dare talk about it…Most men that I know deep down, they really want to be the husbands and fathers they never had growing up. I think the essence of a man is to be truthful and die behind your words. When we have to [cheat] and hide, thats beneath us. That’s not befitting of a true man. That’s just my feeling…I was real busy out there, but then I wind up lying and trying to save peoples feelings. But I had to look at myself in the mirror… and when I’m 100% honest, it just feels better.
He also shares the benefits of being married and how it’s so much better than his past dealings with multiple women:
I used to have a roster of 14 girls I used to deal with… to my friends, I couldn’t have been in a better situation. But what I have with my wife, destroys all that. I am am in the best place I have ever been in my life and the equity that I have with this one woman that is my world. I am so happy and I have to be the one to tell men that this is absolutely worth it.
