The statement released by Jeff Obumseli, elder brother of murdered Christian Toby Obumseli, has not been well received by the Black community.


Jeff admitted that his late brother’s tweets demeaning black women were “ignorant and repulsive”. He added that his family needs help from the “community” to seek justice for his brother who was stabbed to death by his white girlfriend at their Miami apartment on Sunday, April 3, 2022.


Reacting to Jeff’s plea for support, actress Tamisha Akbar, better known as Tami Roman, warned black men to “bridle their tongues” when talking about black women.


She added that black women do not care if black men choose to date from other races but that black women ask that they refrain from belittling and demeaning black women because they have a preference for white women.
