It is frustrating having to walk through America having to bob and weave people's impressions of me because they see a tall, black guy walking down the street. That is frustrating.More Justin Simien quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
White people don't have that problem, they get to go through life never having to fit into a box, and it's really more so true for white men because even just being a woman, you sort of have to walk around other people's assumptions of you and it's so exhausting and there's a sense, especially among young people of wanting to just live your life, not having to wear the weight of that pressure - pressure that people of color feel, that gay people of color feel, that women of color feel.More Justin Simien quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Sometimes identity can be your salvation. It can be liberating to find your place in the world, but at some point, identity can hold you back.More Justin Simien quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I love the art house, and when I say the art house, I don't just mean little, independent movies but movies that really aim to be about something and say something and I love those movies.More Justin Simien quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am more than a black guy. I am a person, I'm storyteller, I'm a son, I'm a friend, so I am all those things so it is frustrating to a degree to be limited by other people's perceptions of me but at the same time, it is true that I am a black guy and it's like I'm rooted in, but not bound by. That sort of mentality, that's the one that I hold to be true.More Justin Simien quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
