This has got to be one of the saddest things I’ve ever seen.
This is Toni Morrison’s “The Bluest Eye” in REAL LIFE.
How do you undo this kind of damage done to someone’s identity? How does someone live in their skin when they are this disturbed by it?
What’s bizarre about this clip is that the whole time he’s confessing to hating himself, this man gives Tyra eye contact with no problem and expresses himself confidently. Is Lawrence an actor, or does he really feel this way about being Black?
