The Thirst Is Real: 12 Black Actors (All Under 40) I’d Totally Go On A Date With

Listen, February may be over but since I completely ignored Valentine’s Day this year (romantically) and just spent time with my daughter and our family, so I’m making up for it by being a thirst bucket, and putting it all out there!

Not only have these 12 Black actors been killing it in the game (recently or previously) but they’re also foine as hell.

Are there any Black actors (under 40) that you’d date if given the chance?

Before you go!

I just wanna remind you that, you CAN (and you should) leave me a sticker below using the “Thank with Google” virtual stickers button!

You know that blue button that says “Thank the creator” at the top of this article? Yeah, that one! Click it!

Leave me a sticker to show your support and show me how much you appreciate my work!

Although Google is paying me to help test out their new virtual stickers program, I totally think it’s a cool way for readers to connect with writers, like me, and I really do love the concept. (Probably because I also love stickers?!)

But yeah … some are free, some have monetary values ranging from $1 to $200? And which one you send all depends on how much you loved the article, and what kind of day you’re having!

You can purchase a sticker that can fund my next cup of Starbucks to keep me awake while writing reviews. (Or you can send me a sticker that pays for my next meal … or movie ticket for a movie you’re dying for me to review.)

It’s totally up to you!

But when you do purchase stickers and send them my way, I get those funds, and as a *cough* starving artist *cough* … I could sure use em!

Plus, the stickers are super cute. And if you want … I’ll even share on Twitter that my next meal / Starbucks frappe is totally sponsored by YOU!

Psst .. if you send me a diamond sticker, you can be my plus one to my next event! Okay … sorry … was the bribery a bit too much? Yeah, I felt that too. That was weird. But this is what happens when I don’t have coffee!

Anywho … no pressure, feel free to send me a free sticker! Especially if you read ALL the way to the end. That way I know who actually READS my entire articles. (Because sometimes I really feel like no one reads these, and I’m just talking to a wall!) Prove me wrong! Send me stickers!
