Light-Skin Actress Thandiwe Newton Apologizes For Being Light-Skin

Thandiwe Newton broke down in tears and apologized to “darker-skinned actresses” while discussing colorism and the prejudices that come with it in Hollywood. The Westworld star opened up about the plight she’s faced as a fair-skinned Black actress during an interview with The Associated Press to promote her latest film, God’s Country. In the film, which premiered at Sundance, Newton plays the role of a grieving professor who is thrust into an intense showdown after two white hunters set foot on her property. The film is based on the short story from James Lee Burke, whose protagonist is an older white man.

She must be a damn good actress because I always assumed this chick had a brain.
