Ronan Farrow: ‘My White Mother Had Black Motheritis’

by Andrew Kirell | 2:04 pm, August 11th, 2014

ronanmotheritisMSNBC host Ronan Farrow understands the enormously disparate scrutiny faced by black men for their public appearance or behavior because his mother, actress Mia Farrow, has an adoptive black son.

During a Monday afternoon segment discussing the police shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, guest Jonathan Capehart suggested that black men have to go extra lengths to ensure their safety in public.

“Don’t run in public,” he said. “Don’t run with anything in your hands. Keep a discreet distance away from white women, lest you get accused of any number of things.” His larger point being that a black male looking and talking a certain way in public could lead to unwanted assumptions or trouble, more so than any other race.

Farrow agreed. “It resonates so much for me on a personal level because I grew up with a black brother and people talk about this term ‘blackmotheritis,’” he explained. “My white mother had blackmotheritis. I heard the speech so many times. My brother was a big black guy and he’d run in the supermarket as a young teen. She’d say ‘You can’t do that.’”

He continued: “[She'd say] that he had to dress in a different way from me because there were all these fears about maybe violence against him if he went across the street in a hoodie or looking a certain way.”

I love Ronan!!!! I do think frank Sinatra was his father. He always speaks the truth and is not afraid if speaking up about the pedophile woody Allen. Ronan can't do any wrong in my book.

Ronan is gay btw, he's very smart and tends to speak the truth. He is trying to ring more attention to the most recent murder if a black male.
