Finally. People Magazine "Sexiest Man Alive" Is A Man Of Color!

Dwayne Johnson was named People's Most Sexiest Man Alive. Finally a man of color covers the gossip rag.
Again, we have the controversial billionaire/racist/sexist/reality television star coming in as our next president. And of course, the world is mixed. Donald J. Trump built a reputation of being ruthless and of course he was a tabloid favorite. People Magazine was one of the outlets the president-elect often flaunted to. He also flaunted his ego around a woman. He sexually harassed Natasha Stoynoff while she did a story about him at the Trump Tower (I meant the second White House).

People Magazine has covered this from all angles. Unfortunately it didn't sway the Trump supporters.

It may have gave them reason to get this asshole in the White House.

Now People is going to cover the Trump presidency as best as it can.

Now you know last year, I was on a verbal rant about how People Magazine often picks White actors as the most "Sexiest Man Alive" and ignoring men of color.

Me and S. Baldwin along with many others have often wondered why People was ignoring people of color for their sexiest alive issues.

I swear if they were going to put another washed up White actor as their "Sexiest Man Alive", I was going to join the boycott against the magazine.

For the People's Most beautiful people there were only four women of color. You have Halle Berry, Jennifer Lopez, Queen Bey (Beyonce Knowles-Carter) and Lupita Nyong'o.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will grace the cover of People's Most Sexist Man Alive cover for the year 2016. After 20 fucking years, the magazine finally puts the "sexist male" of color on that goddamn magazine.

Johnson is an actor, body builder, WWE wrestler and business mogul. Johnson is born of a Black Canadian father and an Anoa'i Samoan mother. He is a native of Los Angeles and has two children.

Dwayne Johnson has been named People's Sexiest Man Alive, succeeding the British soccer player David Beckham. Previous honorees include Chris Hemsworth (2014), Adam Levine (2013), Channing Tatum (2012), Bradley Cooper (2011) and Ryan Reynolds (2010), among other stars.

NBC's Today announced Johnson had received the title during Tuesday's broadcast.

The actor—who voices the demigod Maui in Disney's Moana, in theaters Nov. 23—was flattered to receive the call. "I said, 'That's awesome.' And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is," he says. "And then I thought, 'Wow, we've pretty much reached the pinnacle.' I'm not quite too sure where we go from here. I've done it all, this is it."

Johnson is expecting to get some grief from his friends over the title.

"It's coming now. I can just imagine how it's going to be," the former wrestling champion says with a big laugh. "But see, here's the thing: They give me grief, but they all wish. They all wish."

What makes Johnson sexy? "This is the kind of question that gets me into trouble," he jokes. In all seriousness, he says "a sense of humor" is probably the sexiest thing about himself. "And I think probably just not trying to be sexy and just being cool and confident in your movies," the Jumanji actor adds. "I think with a lot of my fans, I've gotten to a very, very cool place where there's a direct line between the man they know off-screen and the man they see on-screen." It doesn't hurt that he's good-looking, either. "It starts with the skin," he says with a laugh.

"We've only got one face," Johnson, 44, adds. "You've got to take care of it. So I exfoliate."

Finally! However, why's so long? Men of Color deserve better. The disenfrancisment of Men of Color is disgusting and racist. I'm so happy for the Rock landing the People magazine cover.
