My five year old nephew is obsessed with the new spider-man. he’s so excited that he’s black! he keeps saying, spider-man looks like me! and he wants to wear his spider-man costume every where that he goes! 😂😮 (swipe)
this is why diversity matters in mainstream. do not tell me children do not see color etc... children are painfully aware when they do not see themselves. this is why i will continue to champion and produce diverse work. white folks in the industry also need to ensure that their work reflects true diversity and not tokenism.
and i really think my nephew looks like spider-man 😂 #representationmatters#diversity#blackspiderman#essencemagazine#oprahmagazine#redtabletalk#whiteprivilege#blackboyjoy#marvel#strongblacklead
