How y’all feel about Nate Parker trying to make a come back into acting? I really want to know how we as a society deal with those who were accused of rape but are acquitted.

Nate is putting a new show together which tells the story of a family determined to protect its gifted son from the mean streets of Los Angeles as he pursues his dreams with hopes of a better future.
Auditions for the web series take place this week and reports reveal that Parker hopes the show will eventually find a home on a large network.
In his way? The drama surrounding his assault case and remarks he made about the emasculation of black men in the media.
Remember Nate Parker said he would never play a gay man and then he couldnt even be at the Oscars to watch a movie about a gay black man win
