    Hot. Nice to see his ass.

  • Ronbo

    Confidence is sexy.

  • KV

    And this is a magazine predominantly bought by heterosexual men? No words.

  • t money

    denell leyva = blake griffin. in other words, the big reason to wait (with bated breath) for the mailman to drop this one off.

  • Colin

    Looks like a slave auction to me. LOL.

  • Aquarelle

    @Colin: LMAO! Too bad they didn’t include close-ups of their teeth. That really helps a buyer decide.

  • Colin

    @Aquarelle: LOL. Well, we can only assume he has any. I much prefer a demonstration of how much they can carry at one time. That’s how I make my decisions.

  • not a clone

    @Colin: if it was a white guy would you have the same comment? its interesting you see a black guy and slave is what comes to mind.

  • Aquarelle

    @not a clone: In Colin’s defense, that guy is also young and strong: Perfectly suited for a long day picking cotton under the sun. Who *wouldn’t* think “slave”?

  • Colin

    @Aquarelle: Exactly. I like the way you think. And it’s not like thinking “slave” is an inherently bad thing. It’s more of a compliment.

  • Black Pegasus

    Different day, Same ole Racist Assholes on Queerty……

    Yeah, stay Classy.

  • prettygirls

    @Aquarelle: I thought it was their big black dick that helps the buyer to decide. I mean pale, dirty foot sissies don’t mind paying top dollar to have one slap them across the face. Amirite? High Five.

  • Matthew

    @Aquarelle @Colin @prettygirls Nice to see the three of you put your racism on display. At least you’re not trying to hide it.

  • Matthew

    @not a clone: dittto!

  • Karen

    @Aquarelle: That’s fucking terrible.. I’m white but seriously that is an awful thing to say. It’s like making fun of all the Jews that were killed and suffered because of Hitler. Have some class. He’s an attractive MAN and I don’t give a shit what colo his skin. Low class hillbilly!!

  • Karen

    @Aquarelle: Normal people with class wouldn’t think “slave” classless fool. Oh wait, I get it now your all fat. How could I of missed it. Only fat ugly out of shape jealous people talk this way. Probably poor too, awww you poor things are fat and poor. Ewww, poor things..

  • Vin

    I swear it’s so sad that so many of the articles on this site about men that aren’t white eventually turn into race rants. And all of it coming from the same people begging for equality and acceptance because they don’t even have all their civil rights yet. It’d be hilarious if it wasn’t so EMBARRASSING!

  • Juan :)

    @Aquarelle, @Colin. You both are idiots. The first thing that came to my mind was how sexy and handsome he was. Classless, hill Billies!
