Taye Diggs Clarifies Comments About Having a Biracial Son

Taye Diggs is speaking out to clarify some comments he made about his biracial son Walker, whose mom is Idina Menzel.

The 44-year-old actor said that he hopes society doesn’t view him as “black” so that there is not confusion over his mom being white.

“When you [call biracial kids black], you risk disrespecting that one half of who you are and that’s my fear,” Taye told TheGrio.com. “I don’t want my son to be in a situation where he calls himself black and everyone thinks he has a black mom and a black dad, and then they see a white mother, they wonder, ‘Oh, what’s going on?’”

Taye later took to Twitter to share a clarification of his comments.

“I am a proud black man. I want my son to grow up to be a proud black man if he so chooses. He has a mother who is white. He has every right to be just as proud of his mother’s ‘blood’ as well. Please wake up, people. It’s not that deep,” Taye said.
