Chadwick Boseman Talks Being Black Panther, Tells Critics to be Aware of Internalized Racism

Chadwick Boseman hit up The Breakfast Club on Wednesday to talk all things Black Panther and has a message for critics, “You can’t make assumptions about things.”

Boseman stopped by the morning show and addressed criticisms that Disney used a black cast to make money for white people at the company.

“You got to be careful of being racist against yourself. A lot of times people see the name outside of the building and they make the assumption there’s a bunch of white people sitting around the table,” said Boseman. “They don’t know that one of the shot callers, one of the head producers at Marvel is black.”
