The actor-writer says that one day his then-12-year-old told him, “Dad, I don't feel black.” Taken aback, he let his son explain that his world was very different than the one in which Anderson grew up - “in the hood, in Compton.” “The existence that my son knows is nothing short of privilege, being in private school since the age of 4, and his surroundings in that environment is what he was referring to,” Anderson says.
