Octavia Spencer's 'Black & White' Co-Star Anthony Mackie Believes Racism Is Taught to Kids



Octavia Spencer adds a splash of blue while arriving at a press conference for her new movie Black and White during the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival held at TIFF Bell Lightbox on Sunday (September 7) in Toronto, Canada.

The 44-year-old actress was joined by her co-stars Kevin Costner, Anthony Mackie, Bill Burr, Mpho Koaho, and Jillian Estell.

“I’m a firm believer that racism is ignorance, it’s something that’s taught,” Anthony shared at the press conference.

He added, “A child is not born racist and I feel that as a generation we need to get out of the way of the coming generation and allow them to be the best that they can be and not allow our shit to convolute their view of the world.”
