Michael B. Jordan Won’t Dignify the “Ignorance” of Fantastic Four Race Questions

"There’s a thing called adoption." - Michael B. Jordan, 2015

Plenty of real people have siblings of different races. It’s not a big deal, and Michael B. Jordan is tired of incessant questions about the racial specifics of playing noted-white-person Kate Mara’s sibling in Fantastic Four—in general, and also in this one specific interview, in which Jimmy Kimmel fails to take a hint.

At this point, the only appropriate question left about the interracial Storm siblings is, “Why the heck is society still full of ignorant people who can’t fathom this being a normal thing that doesn’t require a big explanation?”

Other than that, who cares? Michael B. Jordan is great. Kate Mara is great. Next question, please.
