    “I had to un-brainwash myself. It’s my mission, especially as an actress.”

    Marvel >DC anyway


    Only in comics......not in movies.


    The best thing Marvel ever put out in the movies was Captain America Winter Soldier.


    And that was a sleeper because I don't think they were expecting it to blow up like it did.

    On her identity as the biracial daughter of stars Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz, the actress said she has only recently begun to identify more with her blackness. Growing up, she said attending a predominantly white school made her feel as though she was "just as white" as her classmates.
    “I identified with white culture, and I wanted to fit in," she told Nylon. "I didn’t identify with black culture, like, I didn’t like Tyler Perry movies, and I wasn’t into hip-hop music."

    “Unfortunately that is what’s fed through the media. That’s what people see. That’s what I saw," Kravitz added. The actress says she has since gained more perspective on being black, and realizes that black culture is "so much deeper than that."
    For Kravitz, introductions to important black actors and musicians helped change her perspective on black identity. "I got older and listened to A Tribe Called Quest and watched films with Sidney Poitier, and heard Billie Holiday and Nina Simone. I had to un-brainwash myself. It’s my mission, especially as an actress.”



    I ain't mad at this she's saying that as a child she ain't know better...at least she's trying to make a change as an adult

    i think it's fair to wait until a movie drops before claiming it's better than a movie that's already out

    unless you feel the present movie was hot garbage

    This 🤬 sounds stupid. Like she has a "How to be black" guide. This is the same language white people use when they say they don't understand black people.

    I'm naturally a bit of a contrarian, which is not to say that I don't believe what I am saying.

    lol 🤬 damn dog, I don't think I've ever seen a point go so far over someone's head. She's saying that she was raised around White people so she wanted to be like them an thought like them which exactly why what she said sounded like some white people 🤬 . Her ultimate point was that when she got older, she expanded her horizons beyond what she was programmed by her white environment to believe defines blackness.
