I find it amazing when people bring up the diversity in protests (for the plight of Black lives), as if MLK’s protests didn’t have diversity? That’s not progress, that’s history repeating itself and people being careless enough to not know that. #WhenVictimsAreAllTheSameColor

The humility, charisma & overall presence of Omar Devon Little is something I got hooked on the minute I seen him on the wire. His role in Boardwalk Empire made me a fan for life. Do your thing maddog and Mr. Williams... look up maddog sometime. lol. He's got heart & you can easily see his dedication to the craft by the way he shared his story. I wish all y'all that want to pursue a career that's very hard to break into... one love to all y'all.

I've seen him in different shows (never watched The Wire) but no performance captivated as much as his role in Boardwalk Empire. I binge-watched that series and couldn't get enough. He was great.

If he shaved his beard I honestly wouldn’t noticed that he’s aged within the past 20 years. Smooth looking dude.
