"Djimon Hounsou took the role of Korath for the sake of his son: "I have a son who loves superheroes from Spider-Man to Iron Man to Batman. One day he looks at me and says ‘Dad, I want to be light-skinned so I could be Spider-Man. Spider-Man has light skin.’ That was sort of a shock.”
This happens all the time.
I’m no social blogger at all, but this hit way too close to home.
Shouts out to you Mr. Hounsou.
I know this feel all too well, frig :(
this is why representation matters.
