That’s why this Steve Harvey episode is so upsetting. He speaks openly about issues facing the black community, he is a man of God, and he has a huge platform to speak from. Unfortunately, he’s also the type of guy who orders Krug champagne for himself and Cook’s for every one else. For his own personal profit, he’s willing to perpetuate the emasculation of Asian men regardless of how hypocritical it is. He isn’t the only one doing this in 2017, but as I told myself on New Year’s, I’m not drinking anymore of this Cook’s they’re trying to pour, and neither should you.
A controversy dating from a few weeks back, but still worthy of attention. At the same time when Steve Harvey was under fire for meeting with Trump, there came a point where he found the time to comment on the masculinity of Asian men — or, in his eyes, lack thereof.
