If you haven’t been watching “The Real World,” here’s a little more about Justin and Dondre that might help put this conversation into the proper perspective:
Justin is a bold and emerging leader in Atlanta’s Black Community. He is pursuing a master’s degree in African American Studies from Georgia State University, although his life purpose wasn’t always clear. It wasn’t until he was racially profiled by police that he decided to dedicate his life to uplifting the Black community. Justin also faces the challenge of maintaining a long-distance relationship with his long-term girlfriend.
Dondre is a staunch, conservative Texan who is confident in expressing himself and his political views. As a pansexual person, Dondre is on a journey of coming out and revealing his sexual orientation to his friends and family. A proud Republican, Dondre believes in the American dream. He is a Trump supporter and an advocate for the second amendment, even after losing a brother to gun violence. Dondre is still discovering what it means to be a Black man in America.
