John Boyega Talks ‘Woman King’, ‘Star Wars’, Black Love + MoreMay 03, 2023
wake up that ass in the morning The Breakfast Club tomorrow everyone it's DJ Envy Angela Yee Charlemagne the guy we are The Breakfast Club we have a special guest in the building yes actually John
boyegawhat's up man good morning tomorrow, welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome. Great peace King, how are you, brother? I am a good man. I can't complain at all. You are from England, from London.
morethan two came up but the
womansnapped they cloned tyrone yeah so I got a lot of stuff on the go huh yeah man we just trying to come back with some crazy pandemic especially you know what happened to our industry so yeah now we're coming back with the projects so for the people who don't know who you are tell them who you are and how you got
started interactive um oh yeah I'm John Boyega I'm 30 I got my
start in a British movie called Attack the Block um didn't really do well for me in the UK, but I was really appreciated in the US, so it broadened my opportunities. from Star Wars that's where I got the chance to be on the main stage or commercial and what made you act like what was the act where I said I want to do this that's why you know what started out as a social activity what it really didn't I fit in all the groups I wasn't too smart I wasn't smart enough for academics I wasn't strong enough for the big ones and at the same time you know I wasn't smart enough for soccer and I was, um, so just with the kids from performance and they had girls too so I said yeah this is better anyway so I said yeah I'm just going to chill here and then from there actually the passion came later. that i actually started to take it seriously after going through a few things and then just ma
kingsome decisions you know that's when i was introduced to you through star
warsdo you feel like all that talk about do you know a
blackperson is a lead in star
warsdo you think it overshadowed your actual abilities that you showed in that movie um yeah to a degree actually i think um with episode seven with the force awakens i think people thought i was that guy i found hilarious like they thought I was the character oh my gosh um and that was kind of confusing and then you have two
moremovies and then people like you are introduced through the franchise it's hard to have that separation and that detachment but no you don't I blame, I think that's the natural type of um, that's how the process works with franchise movies, it's hard to break away from character, so yeah, it's definitely a tough conversation because you see what's going on with Halle.
Bailey with the little mermaid. I saw that I just commented on a page. I'm very proud of her. Leave a message. I'm very proud of what I saw in that trailer. going through having so many people and I know that's what I'm saying it's important that you talked and talked about it because it really got attention I feel like I talked about it and then at the I've been seeing a lot of corporate companies, um, spea
kingup and showing support and
lovebecause I think it's important that companies really stand behind the people that they cast in the movie, um, just to make them feel safe and feel. protected but yeah it's hard but i suggest this time instead of obsessing over the negative for her we should celebrate and block out the negative noise that's what we should do this time yeah i saw you say huh you said that you were the only cast member whose star wars experience was based on your race yes but especially during episode seven being the only one like everyone else it was like you got this role you got this first role congratulations while with me it was what you know what haley is going through was the backlash and you find yourself when you look at yourself and you are in front of oscar isaac obviously you are daisy ridley you say wow i am different like my introduction to this industry is different how is that Oscar does not receive this answer? how come Daisy doesn't and that sets you apart a bit? maybe I'm just being used as a pawn for diversity, but sometimes it feels that way because, for example, if you watch my movie I just broke, if you look where you're going and see the female king, um, I hope you find that Rod, this kid, he can really act and what I mean is act, I mean act as a set of skills different roles you can change your acts so you can change the way you walk and talk and stuff and then when you look back in the star wars movies you'll be confused because you'll probably be like raw, why didn't they use this guy's ability and that's where the porn sentiment comes from? using my ability but at the same time you want to put me on all the marketing billboards just to get niggers excited but then when niggers come to see it they're half excited they always give us these half rolls like yeah fucking man I he thought he was going to be a hero, it's always a debate about we thought we were going to be the one, while on the other side they caped the brother, he's killing him, you know he's got the stories, he's got the moves and all that kind of thing so you know sometimes it's a struggle how did you get Star Wars for people who don't know how it breaks down you know how the whole process came about um so it's actually funny it wasn't I was filming a movie called Imperial Dreams with her Timmy and rotimi rotimi Atlanta Falcons fan yeah I texted me man I like the way he responded to that song but we're going to have a conversation about that song anyway but we're working on a movie. together a great guy who is my brother and um he got an audition for a secret project and i put him on tape because he helped him help put it on tape now when i looked at the part i was like wait this is on the way star wars glide how come i didn't get a call from me like what's going on with that so i called my agent he said what's going on and they're like they haven't come to london yet because this was some kind of world search and then they went out, they came to London randomly.
I got a call from a femi agent and she's been with me since I was 16 and she said, "you got the audition." I was like the one that is, yeah and then I was catapulted into nine months of consecutive auditions. I had to lose weight and stuff because I was a little chubby going in. from the darth maul figures so i was like nah this is legit about to get rich you know what i mean you know that feeling you know when you get the first call you get a piece of the merchandise you don't get a part. we get none of the damn even when they use your picture and all face none of them much damn damn I see they said you want free movies you better appreciate we gave you this chance yeah you know me so I was hungry, you know, white was crossing the corner of my mouth, yeah, that kind of hungry and I wanted the opportunity, so I was like, well, great, free photo deal, um, and then one thing led to another, such a long process and then I was done.
I got the part but it was like yeah it was a daring moment because it's like the choices of your life: either you're going to be someone or you're going back to the hustle you know it's just very interesting to me because you know how racist you have to be to see careers in a fantasy movie, whether it's Star Wars or The Little Mermaid, we're talking about mermaids, it's a mermaid, it's a mermaid, bro, you know what's up, man, Sebastian Sebastian the crab. it was caribbean so you'd be thinking like everyone else out there it'll probably be
blackin that caribbean you know that caribbean sea and stuff but i don't know about that i just leave the game it's on frequently bro what's on now they're killing it right now but it's crazy you know it just reflects how they would
lovethe world. movies that go, oh my gosh, I'm so intimidated by it that I don't know what to do about it and it turns into this big frenzy and I think this time for her, especially because it's a big Disney, you know how this is. they probably have to change them up a lot and put Ariel Brown in the stuffed toys and stuff yeah we got to celebrate well what that is for her you know and it's a great it's a great move how does it make you that?
I'm sorry, how did that make you feel when she saw the billboards and saw your face up there, but you know it's not going to live up to the hype? elaborating well you know a little bit salty about it um but then but again it's the process of that I was like you know maybe in the last one you know they're going to do things with my character I'm not going to do something maybe in the last um but you know it was a struggle to a degree as well but someone inside Disney contacted you afterwards and said you had any feedback or told you I know what you're right whatever no no no in hindsight but I heard that this is the type of policy that we do not say that we do not respond to anything, but when I, when I see them, I go to talk to them. no you're not coming back dude I read this you don't want to you're not interested in going back to any of the Star Wars franchises no no man. it's not even a conversation where i don't even think they're curious about me coming back or anything like that so right now we're here to talk about the addition of the female Rey they're both based on two correct stories um the female got to some extent to come in yeah yeah yeah then tell us the story of the breakup this is how michael k williams is there yeah i love michael k williams he's a fellow brooklyn gentleman like me so yeah , can you tell us about the break up and what was your role and there you were a marine yeah yeah so i play.
I play a war veteran named Brian Brown Eastleigh, um, who comes back to society after serving and then when he comes back, he's going through a lot of different problems. Financial can't get hold of his daughter, can't afford matches, housing issues and then he also suffers from PTSD and then makes an extreme decision in the crescendo of all these stresses to go to a Wells Fargo Bank, stop it and try get your money back from Veterans Affairs. because, as you know, when the vets come home, they rely heavily on the various Matters, uh, for checks and clearances for their day-to-day needs, and unfortunately through management through bugs, they know the case Brian's is dismissed and then he's left in his position where it's kind of like I don't know I don't know what to do and with PTSD with bullying what's been going on with looking thinking about the things he's been through past walks into that Wells Fargo and holds How can you not understand it as a human being?
How can you not understand what that man is? Brother, we are not in our bubble, although we are in our bubble when we have our own stress and sometimes it is difficult for us. to have that sympathy and perspective true um but with this with this man he wanted to be heard that was the main thing and you know even the bank tellers that were there were like that this was the nicest man who ever did a blank heist the right way there's a scene in the movie where cost an actual customer calls wells fargo yes he answers the call because he doesn't want you to know he's a different kind of bank robber and the media could be like a guy grabs a bank and you know they use that and it's time for us to learn that they packaged it that way whereas in this movie um goes into the nuances and the details um of that and bless Michael K Williams like I'm asking him to um let's go to the movie um i sent him a letter i begged him to come join me because i know we don't have the queen to pay for michael k but this is just a little bag come downstairs and do a couple weeks work and he said yes but i'll come down and do it I'll do how did you meet him?
I did before he said okay I just like his work Boardwalk Empire so I was like me bro like I love an awesome person isn't it great to work with people you like in real life too ? To me, you know work is better when we all get along. The first time I saw him after he got on set, he accidentally walked into my trailer because he thought it was his, you know, and that kind of low-budget guy, uh, trailers all look the same and he walked in and he was just like me. .brother and he was like me like oh you're in the projects He was like yeah man I was like brother thank you so much for coming because you really didn't have to um and he just told me about you know the speech he had made at the protest and he told me that he annoys me that way that's why it came out like it was a strong message for the movie and he just wants to do the job and be a part of it man and from there it was all love.
What impact did playing that role have on your mental and emotional well-being? I think he gave me perspective. I have never had anyone in my family serve me. someone in my family that has made that commitment to any western government my family are kind of black as hell and they have opinions um and so in that i can't directly relate to certain things that i went through but after being in these shoes um, yeah man the intensity of being on set was what it was because we had to have a theater approach like you know our director Abby was likeyou know the space is yours do you like it you are the you are the one who owns the space the cameras will follow you and so you have to have that kind of focus um but other than that man i think it was cool, he actually got out a lot um during the filming process because those would be yeah, by the way, the days would be intense, right?
And it would be like when I come back, I'll make sure my kids are in the crib, come home, relax with them a little bit and have that balance so that I can't take it off and they can enjoy my life a little bit, oh let me talk to you. of that for a second so a lot of times when people get this far into character they want to stay there until the role is over but you chose to drop it like every other day or yeah every day wow every day every days Brian Brian has to come in and the funny thing is he gets in your way when he gets in your life is when I had to shave my hair down every day because that's what Brian was doing and you know shave your head trying to get out and stuff you have Bulldog's head like that doesn't really match sometimes so I had to put the hat on just to be you know put the chains on to make sure I'm different than Brian is and just to have that balance and then have the house to my best friend was there both of my kids were there we were all there and just in the house together, um, and that made the process a little easier. look at the cameras man you see out in the cold behaving like you know getting ready and you say yeah nah I gotta get into Moon and get into action and the stories about him so we jump in and out its a skill set you should definitely check it out what did your parents think of you uh wanting to be an actor when you were younger um definitely some concerns um well mainly because in school my behavior in school was a bit tricky so there were some concerns imitating those white people too much huh nah nah Solo he was imitating white people.
I'll just do my thing, but you know how it goes, man. I know if you're not taking it seriously it'll just be a distraction but then after my dad started to see that I was consistent he started taking me to auditions and he took me to my first agency meeting it was like a complete supporter um and then they brought star wars to my house and then he said ok i mean that's that moment it's that move so you know we're ready to go from there you know i hate how this country treats to their veterans.
I can't stand it you know what I mean um you know just going and fighting for a country and then coming home and not even having a place to stay is just ridiculous to me but what light do you think this movie ? going to shine in war Veterans like what the message they hope to send is I think we need to understand the complications of that position um and we need to understand what happens mentally to people when they go to war and experience certain things and that integration back into normal life is a deep struggle and affects every aspect of your life including mentally and for many of us we can't relate we haven't been on the front lines like this and and that in itself means I hope there is empathy and I hope you'll also watch it for the entertaining qualities of his great performance, don't you?
I think Abby, our director, does a phenomenal job and is Michael, one of the last of Michael K Williams. um the latest papers and i think it will be great to show The Man Show the man love where were you when you found out he passed away and what was your initial reaction? I was in London and Abby the breakup manager texted me and I just didn't believe it I thought there was probably a bit of a mix up you know you know how it is sometimes I think they've said I've died like twice during my career yes you're going to die twice digitally that's yes you're going to die you're going to die twice that's how you know you're successful though yeah yes they're going to kill you and they're going to say you're a part of me so those are two things once you get that you're making that money money you want to talk but you know it was shocking to me just hearing about his passing i didn't know anything about his personal life so for me it was just a bit of a shock yeah some of the stances that you took throughout the BLM movement that moment in time impacted you in Hollywood absolutely definitely um but I mean um I did mature a bit through the process because I mean you have to think about over the summer we were home and we were looking at bodies black people constantly damaged or injured in a certain way and then I spontaneously went out to the protest um and made that speech, you know there's going to be some people in Hollywood. that doesn't necessarily get it um and they're probably going to say yeah we're fine they're not going to come to you and tell you we're not working with you you might not hear anything you know I mean you I might not see the audition coming and I think and I think that definitely happened but I'm not mad at it because I'm not here in this industry to exist like that no more like it existed during episode seven it false wakes up like I'm playing doing everything by the rules and I was, you know clean and trying to be nice to everyone you know where beyonce is she can't be nice in this all the way yeah not the whole way you are the face of star wars yeah i mean but to a certain period you're too comfortable with everyone um they can take the can take the mick you know so there's definitely going to be a lot more of a right now there's um a lot more of a um specific gratitude for now attracting the Hollywood people than he offers me, which is what happened creating yours too, yeah yeah because the raid I'm a producer on that um I have my own production company and we developed some good projects and now I'm like okay you know later after that happened jamie foxx calls my phone now we mess with you, right?
Viola Davis calls me no, we mess with you, it's good Gina Prince, by the way, yes, we mess with you, come on, they don't like it, come to the black stages, man, come and come and film with us and that's what I felt, I felt love for that, I was going to ask you what it is. more satisfying if you know a role like in uh the female king or how to play a role in star wars the female king man ok the female king you gotta think about this bro I know you too you come from a female brown-skinned brown, you see. how is that happening in terms of the disparity of roles in terms of opportunities and roles for dark skinned black women which in itself has been a struggle so for me to be sitting on a set where I'm looking at top 10 or even 15 to 20 women in this photo either they are black and dark skinned specifically it was special to see and they went in it's not just some kind of propaganda that black people were now trained for six months they transformed their bodies you know?
I mean, I came in as the king. I didn't have much to do physically. They were running everything and it was Eli. It's inspiring to work with that guy 300 for black women. like he thought it was a new black panther trailer. I'm not going to lie, but that's what I understand, but that's what we're used to, but that's why we're trying to break the fact that we deserve the full Buffet, that's right, we deserve it. having the Tyler Perrys of the world and then having the other side, then having the Kings women and that the King
womanis based, you know, loosely based on a true story, so it connects you more to the realities of our world. , but you know the question arises as to why we can't have both.
What is this quote for people who don't know well? It's about uh does the um female only military unit in the homie um who are basically tasked with protecting their Kingdom. I'm in a very difficult time because they have their share in this slave trade and their share. I mean the negativity of the times as times have changed. your nation can move on if we continue some of this negative slave trade or we like to branch out and go into palm oil and all these different things and that comes with internal civil strife and just shows the journey of that but Viola Davis, oh Oh my gosh, Beast, hey, Viola Davis, Beast is crazy, it's a transformative role for a lot of people, and it's transformative in bedou, too. each other isn't um wasn't that huh the regime you just discussed isn't who the malaji gate is based on um well no no good well yes they said they said he was lazy they were loosely based on them i mean which one is which is cool to see how those references go but this isn't fantasy i mean this is yeah this is real swords and spears and you just know you don't get a suit in this how was training for you preparing for this fancy role he said he had to do too yes yes robes you know picking up free robes got the blue one running or nothing didn't have a buffet running so they were bad they'll run they had to so they did it they're dying so most of them thought they did most of the work you know what was the most challenging part you know uh playing the game picking up the strings right there it was no parts you were excited about in the movie well that's not a challenge that's great definitely definitely there a part of praise and adoration that black women have to do and they were singing and dancing and that's another What I wanted from this movie is that you don't know slave porn it doesn't have bonding moments Sisterhood dancing singing and those moments were definitely emotional to watch sing watch them dance you know im nigerian too so i'm like yeah me me I love the culture vibe in it why you thought?
Why do you think the king did not want to fight with the foreign country at first? I think that's what you mean by foreigner. Why do you think I didn't want to fight them at first, what did you mean, you didn't want to fight them? You're talking about when I think you're going to go to war, she says, do you want to go to war? and he said well sometimes we have to fight about something yes but I asked him when are you going to see the movie it's so nuanced it's very nuanced it speaks to the diaspora it speaks to multiple different tribes and cultures it
talksabout the internal Civil War so that when he says go to war it's not always just white people it's like black people too this script is so much more nuanced than people think he's male you know the marketing strategy you just have to make them happy with the spears and, ah you know Viola gets the action but when you walk in and see it it's so much more it's a more nuanced take would you say this is your favorite movie you've done to date yeah really yeah man yeah , I enjoyed my experience, it took me back to the beginning and I like being on a set, while black women and the things they say to you when they cross you in the corner. from your lips I tell you when your elbows are dry yeah other trainers will let you hang out there you know what I mean so there's something nice and homey about having a cast of women reflecting on how you dunk let me do you one question, right?
You played the king in that movie. This is something I've been exploring like you know. I feel like I feel like the patriarchy is a system. I feel like the divine order of things is that women are really the leaders at the bottom that's my personal opinion when you play a role like that and you see them in their position and you and your position or what makes you think that in power Dynamic I think it's a reciprocal energy that we need um and then you need to go deeper into the details of who the woman is um you can't just go female and male and then place them in positions I think everyone has unique skill sets that could be utilized or used and that's what you see in this movie that even in Chambers court you know with a pin minions there will be women there and there will be men and to get that feeling of a different but different perspective but the funny thing is that some women and men will be I agree you know what I mean and they still differ in their opinion but it got me thinking like you we just have to work together a lot we have to get to this point where there is a level playing field where you can collaborate to improving society, our society starts with families, good families, um, so yeah, it just makes you think about it, when did you decide to start a production company, um, I think I was bubbly from being on the set of Star?
Wars and not being involved in the conversations of the greats which were great to listen to although I would hear JJ Abrams and Kathy talk about movie moments that I knew would be historic to the world but they're just talking about it in a tent like it was informal and i was like i would love to be a part of the creative process and then i was like you know if i wait for the phone to ring movies like breaking up and all these roles i've been able to do even clone tyrone like it can't it can't happen again That way, I have to have a more proactive approach in my work, you have to tell me about this day, clone Tyrone, the title itself sounds great, I know, Jamie.
Foxx is in it, but what's that movie about a pimp, a hooker, and a drug dealer? He discovers that there are some white people doing crazy things underground in the neighborhood. That's what I'm going to tell you. Foxx is the pimpuh Tiana Paris is a hooker and I'm the drug dealer and it's basically a kingpin Star Wars is uh is Hood Scooby-Doo looks like it's a mystery movie about missing persons the last people you think about team the last kind of people you think would come together it's about them actually stepping in and running a bit of a sci-fi mystery situation that you can't see and Jamie Jamie Foxx chicken fox is hilarious is hilarious you know it's a real conversation though it's been going on for a few years like people think there are actually cloned people here that i thought i knew yesterday and then the next day they were totally different and i'm like they must have been cloned i want to know where the facility is even though i haven't heard a lot about now do you believe in it to some degree i mean you never know thats how i believe it you never know but then i dont i dont know the facts now yeah yeah yeah but you set out to make it you made three movies completely different, I just wanted to change and if you see that and then Tyrone was cloned, I play four or five different characters, one of them 78. so all of this has given me the opportunity to do what actors do.
The actors aren't supposed to play themselves, yes, but it's so funny that the movie is weird. It's not even about that, it's just that it's weird. I can't wait for people to do it. For people to see now when people talk about diversity in Hollywood, what does that really look like? it means you just put in a bunch of black people or quotas it means you really try and really find homegrown talent that people are passionate about and are working that don't have those opportunities that don't have the cousin or aunt in there that says oh you can come and help this actor the people who don't have that clean cut door um means we're struggling to try to attract those people and this is behind the scenes as well as in front of the camera it's about bringing in those people who are skilled but don't have the opportunities based on that disparity there you have a very old soul man you're only 30. yes yes indeed you have a very old soul like oh yes yes how do you feel about how your art is now not being released in major movie venues anymore?
Woman King is different because she's only in theaters on the 16th. I've been blessed. Breaking Breaking was also only in theaters for the first two weeks and then I think it will be released digitally this week or so. I've been uniquely blessed in that sense that I've had, I've been able to shoot three projects during the pandemic, um, and two of them have been released exclusively theatrically and breaking we got the big deal from AMC so we were in quite a few AMC's so I personally can't complain but I do think it was concerning for a lot of people starting the pandemic it was like wait wait wait wait what's up?
They won't come to see us. they don't want to come see us anymore for an hour and 30 minutes I'm like damn like um and it makes you think and it makes you respect what you know Denzel Washington has done Tom Cruise Tom Hanks you know old school box office you know the money makers who they would make movies an event and make you get out of your house if it's cold it suddenly rains it makes you respect that more i mean ever changing time but it's an adjustment it's an adjustment what would you rather oh our movies?
Yes, I still like going to the movies as The Woman King in the movie. No, no, you have to see the King woman in the movies. the dip in the i mean you at home the microwave beeping you took it to someone you text it on instagram it's like there's so much more than a focus and a fixation um and an experience what are your thoughts on uh you know all That conversation about how British actors say they play African-American roles, you know what you think about it? I think first and foremost the first approach is to listen to each other because there may be a perspective that we're missing right coming into the game. and us, we're not going into the games to steal anything, in fact, it's impossible to steal a role because of the way roles are only offered, so we come here just to work, but sometimes you don't know who you're stepping on your toes if you don't actually, you don't listen to people where you know they're on the ground to tell you, but I think on the other side as well, um, I couldn't relate to the conversation because, to be honest, African Americans have been nothing but love to me I lost my accommodation in La huh my Airbnb in La I stayed on the streets for about two days um off Crescent Heights Boulevard I went to a party I met who is now my best friend Asia Young African American girl from Inglewood that was like you I loved your movie I got your movie on redbox and I said I have nowhere to stay she goes you can come stay come stay at my crib I said where is your crib she goes Inglewood so I was living in Inglewood for a while and for me it's like I've met and connected with people who have helped me, the people who have helped me were mostly African American, so I don't see that side of the conversation. so sometimes I'm not in the best position to communicate because it's been a lot like, whether it's an awakened, whoever it is, Jamie, it's just been love, you know, and support, and I think on set we collaborate a lot. even with roles like a black Brit that people feel like I wouldn't get the part sometimes my African American brother doesn't get the part either and we help each other and think oh why weren't we there at the end of the day we are actors we have to portray something that we can't see so I think it's a good conversation and we need to keep listening, keep collaborating because the Civil War looks weak, looks petty and weak, especially when it comes to for the main game it seems a bit dead but if we can talk and have a conversation about it no one feels like it should be an attack you know let's just be nice so we can actually have the conversation. and maybe we'll learn some things absolutely if there were roles you missed out on for scheduling as a man I really wanted to do this but I'm here shooting Star Wars or Iowa during Star Wars yeah I mean during Star Wars it was like I say I say in joke, but it's like a fancy jail, you know, because it's nice, it's nice to be in a movie like this, it's nice to know that your bills will probably be paid for the next eight years, it's nice I know, but there are some roles in The ones that you say I can actually do that they don't think I can because I just have to do these Star Wars movies there's no harm to Star Wars it takes like eight nine months to shoot one so after that I'm trying to go on vacation with the guys and just relax.
I'm trying to get out, but yeah, you feel that way. I've been feeling inspired, what are some of the things that you wish you had done during that time, but you just couldn't for some reason and you're like, man, I've forgotten about it now, but it was some good stuff that came out, but in its they were mostly Indies they were mostly Indies and I would have loved the opportunity to work with Jordan Peele a little bit so well we had we've been talking for a while and forever and you know we took a I took a I met him and went to see him To poor Monkey and I've always said hey Jordan man just hey bro just put me in it just put me in a far distance you know damn well Danny Khalid has put his head to the side.
You just know, wave or something, just put me on there because I really like his work, so yeah, maybe one day you'll know that we were talking about, uh, like The Little Mermaid backlash in the Star Wars backlash before, huh? how much of that we do how much? from that we know it's real because I feel like that's what I've been thinking that's what I've been thinking I've also been thinking about these Bots yeah pretend they're black yeah we have to be careful um and I've been seeing it some more, for what journalists are doing something is due to the pressure that sometimes comes from the editors. you'll answer a race related question one week, you'll post several different parts of your answer over the course of six weeks, like over the six week time frame, just to have a consistent story and sometimes it's not accurate to what the question is conversation, but I think we need to have an audience that's more aware that all of you need to be a little bit smarter, stop triggering because some of this stuff, like you said, is false, like you're trying to agitate. the pot to some degree so we need to look at a celebration like we did with the black panther like yeah it was like that celebration was so angry that someone was talking about anything that thing that was negative was you could dismiss so let's celebrate because it's hard for me to believe people would care so much about a black mermaid because when i saw the trailer on my algorithm it was all love let me tell you man her name ariel and she been swimming to the surface man that sun has been her smacking for some banana she's supposed to have those dreadlocks that's how she was supposed to be in the first place let's talk about her talent she's amazing absolutely she's a mermaid do you ever sing like her. her falsetto hers it's like she's up there man she's got it so um you know she just love her and support her when she keeps doing your thing. book they are you know you know how we do it we make it so easy for cointel pro nowadays though for what it was worth cointel bro cointel pro was a system that actually used to disrupt protests back in the day over the years 60 during the Civil Rights Era like if that's what they would do they would send people to these yeah yeah yeah internet I mean I mean it makes sense that I would actually copy and paste that physical situation it makes sense that do it online and I've also been thinking about it because sometimes I made the mistake of highlighting something that was triggering that but it's like you didn't highlight it bro no one would have seen it. so you know we have to try to hone it a bit more there's a game to that what's the biggest misconception huh about being black in hollywood?
I don't know, man, I guess there's a lot, but I don't know. I know that I will stand alone. I don't really try to get too into people's opinions. I really don't know. um. I guess maybe you are a. I mean you always have to prove that you're not. and the first three weeks of meeting someone, but I'm sure it's in your position as well, like you know you're going on a date or whatever, and it's like the person is like you're one of them, you know what what i mean and the first three weeks are proving you're just not the dating part now look oh yes but you got married yes sir ok ok for 24 years.
I think it's fantastic, she's black, yes sir. i heard you talk i heard you i heard you talk before about you know your blackness and stuff so i thought you were one of those who was going to sacrifice your loins to continue in this race so i'm ok great lemme check ok yeah he said that he said so I'm like playing that now what happened no you talk a lot about your blackness yeah and then obviously I've seen your interview so it doesn't let me just check that I make sure that it's oh yeah yeah that's real yeah because I judge brothers like that too I mean I'm a judge I mean anyone can do what they need to do but I feel like when you talk a certain way the black men have to be with black women, yes, yes, when you talk, you talk. like that yeah i'm like let me check my mind my man is devout at home people talk so black but next time i sleep i'm white i mean have you ever dated a white woman yeah , once once a day I did one once, um, when I was younger, um, it was fine, but we were just chilling, you know, I mean, it wasn't anything serious like that, but, naturally, you know, could you bring a stormtrooper home?
I've said it, but it's just a preference like I like I like my black women, you know, and I feel, just, separate from you, you know, a political statement or something, it's just they're good as hell, you know that melanin levels got to be over 75, you know, I mean the thickness has to be there, the style has to be there, we have to laugh at the same jokes, we have a beat to the same music, it just has to be a right flow and I mean you can't have conversations about white supremacy tearing apart black families, but you're not even trying to create.
I'm trying to have conversations where I can say talk behind closed doors like I'm trying to say female. t and she goes yeah baby yeah you're right you're right you know what I mean I needed to understand the anger or frustration of a black man I needed to understand when you know certain guys walk into the room and the energy is not the right one and she's calm down i need that i need i need me uh anemia queen man we appreciate you don't you see just a little just a little i'm mike tyson a little bit and it looks with the eyebrows have you ever had that before i go i go a lot but you remember me to Jonathan Mages oh I got I got I got that too brows and all anyway John Boyega we thank you for joining thank you thank you thank youI appreciate, man, woman, King breaking.
