  • "There are going to be so many kids out there who get to see a black man on that screen and aspire to be like him. We didn’t have that. They get to be included. When I grew up, it was a lie to us that you could be anything you wanted to be. Because we knew we couldn’t be president. What this generation has is President Obama — he’s a superhero for us. And I think that might be hard for people to really embrace and understand."
