Him: What’s the M –
Me: I just think it’s funny how Zeke stay forgiving Mylene for everything she has done to him from the blatant emotional abuse to the neglect to how she talks down to him as if she is better than him. I mean, Mylene barely has a loyal bone in her body. She is all talk. And worse, she tried to drag her friend Yolanda down into doing some hyper sexual bullshit with her without even asking her if she felt comfortable. That’s some low shit. Meanwhile, he’s out here trashing Shao like Shao knew any better. Shao was sexually abused, blatantly. Period. He was prostituted by Fat Annie and forced into this box since he never had anyone. Now, he finally has a family and he doesn’t get how a family operates. Yeah, he did osme wrong, but Zeke, an orphan, promised to be the one looking out for him. Leaving him like that was just a blatant way of abandoning him, like he finally found his out. Worse, he never sat down and told Shaolin WHY he wanted to leave to college He just assumed he would know how much it meant to him. Shao ain’t ever know ANYBODY who went college, and doesnt ever see the point in it. Maybe instead of abandoning the people from your old block, you would try to help them see the fortune in it. He messed up with Boo Boo, true, but Boo Boo isn’t entirely clean in this either. Boo Boo had a will to do something, and Shao thought he was protecting him. That’s it. Zeke, you invented Rap Music, and I pay respects to you for that homie, but you dont know how to be anything but lovesick. You know all about romantic love, but you are shit platonically and I think you can blame your parents death for that. And while I’m at it, let’s also talk about the elephant in the room: Shao is Queer. That is not up for debate. He is Queer as FUCK. In a series that does very good about showing LGBT throughout the series, while also carefully weaving through the latent homophobia in the black community (way better than they did in Part 1, might I add) I would think more people would have sympathy for Shao as he navigates what might be the newest feelings in the world for Zeke, someone he loves intensely and can’t even cognitively understand how to manauver through. He let him move in, and basically leapt out the window when he said he would stay forever. This guy didnt want Zeke to leave him and so he made mistake after mistake because of it. Let’s be real: that’s why Shao was ALWAYS so antagonistic to Rah Rah and Mylene: his two opponents for all of Zeke’s love. Let’s try to be more open to Shao’s flaws.
