Actor Daniel Kaluuya opened up recently about the difference between racism in the U.S. vs. racism in Great Britain.

The Black Panther actor sat down with W Magazine and discussed how racism operates differently in the two countries.

“I feel like racism is more pronounced in America. The disease is still there, it’s the same disease, but it just manifests in a different way,” he said. “British culture is way more reserved. I think in America you have the systematic and you have the overt.”

Kaluuya, who’s British, is the son of Ugandan parents and starred in one of the biggest hits of last year Get Out, which dealt with racism.

“A lot of the people that are within London come from Africa and the Caribbean. So they’re coming from this culture and they usually come from the Commonwealth and have been colonized by the west,” Kaluuya said. “It’s not seen in England, but it’s felt and it’s oppressive and it stops you from becoming your best you.”

The star wouldn’t say where racism was worse but agreed with how horrible it is.

” I think racism sucks across the board.” “It’s kind of f*cking sh*t.”
