  1. It’s so annoying when people who wouldn’t be affected by colorism try to deny it’s a thing. I’m more interested in hearing what Viola has to say about the subject than Denzel.

  2. Viola went through a lot to get where she is. And the point is a lot of black women who aren’t racially ambiguous looking have the same story. Meanwhile, a lot of racially ambiguous women don’t have the same experiences. It’s ok to call a spade a spade.

  3. I think he believes working hard for what you without letting obstacles get in the way leads to success, he”s had flops and he has also made wonderful movies but he didn’t let the flops or the struggles he most likely had early in his career stop him from becoming a great actor. Had he worded his thought properly this could have been a very empowering interview
