Luke James @wolfjames - After the BET Awards, Luke James posted this photo of this young woman saying that he couldn't wait to get home to his lady. Unfortunately, he faced immediate criticism because his girlfriend is white. He deleted the photo, posted an angry message, then deleted that. Then eventually, he reposted this photo with no caption. We're glad to see Luke happy and to see that he eventually rose above the critiques from strangers. Best of luck to him!   (Photo: Luke James via Instagram)
