‘Luke Cage’ Actor Michael Colter Responds to Fans Criticizing Him for Marrying a White Woman

During a Sept. 30 interview with “The Breakfast Club” radio show, “Luke Cage” actor Michael Colter talks about his wife and Black heroes.

In the clip, host Charlemagne asks Colter about the reaction he receives when Black female fans discover his wife is white. The actor responds by professing his love for “sistas.” But Colter does not apologize for loving his wife. He says that he married his wife because they have been together since he was a struggling grad student.

“I’m a human being,” he starts. “I look at people [for their] character and what is inside… I met my wife when I was struggling and in grad school. She stuck with me for 16 years … She held me up many times.”
