Some Thoughts on The Martian


I’m a little late on this, but I actually love that Chiwetel Ejiofor plays a biracial Black Desi in The Martian. I mean, how many times do we get to see that? How many times is a role as a multiracial Black person portrayed by someone who actually looks Black…period? I feel like the only thing better would be the role of a multiracial person played by an actual multiracial person.

But you know. One has to have something to aspire to.
