Zendaya Is Tired Of Being ‘Hollywood’s Acceptable Version Of A Black Girl’



Zendaya wants to see real change in the way Hollywood deals with representation.

"As a black woman, as a light-skinned black woman, it’s important that I say, ‘Listen, I’m using my privilege and my platform to show you how much beauty there is in the African-American community.' I am Hollywood’s, I guess you could say, acceptable version of a black girl, and that has to change. We’re vastly too beautiful and too interesting for me to be the only representation of that."
