“Most people usually assume I’m angry or aggressive, before they speak to me. I wish people knew how much of an approachable and cool person I am, but that can only happen when people move past what they assume.

#WeSmileToo really matters because people also always assume black men are mean, aggressive, or just “urban.” But this campaign shows people the many different shades we come in, and all the different looks we can give. If people could take anything away from this campaign, I hope it is that men of color are beautiful.”
