Black Panther Actor Michael B Jordan Weighs In On Colourism Debate After Beyonce Dad Comments
Matthew Knowles had earlier suggested in a recent interview that most successful black female artists are those who are lighter-skinned, including daughters Beyonce and Solange.

Jordan, who plays Erik in the Marvel film, admitted that although he hadn’t heard about Knowles’ remarks, it was important to have a discussion on the subject. He said:
