Love is love, right? That is what Marvel’s new action hero Mike Colter says when addressing criticism over marrying a white woman.
The star of Luke Cage has been married to his wife Iva for 16-years, way before anyone was calling him their #MCM. During a recent radio interview, Colter said that his wife has been by his side throughout his struggles in becoming an actor.
“I look at people for character and what’s inside. Physically — that’s one thing — but you gotta be on the same page. I met my wife when I was struggling in grad school. She stuck with me for 16 years. It’s a long ways! She was with me and she’s held me up many times, and I’ve held her up before.”
He continued on by saying, “People don’t understand [that] when it comes to being with somebody long term, it’s way more than skin color that’s gonna make it work. Love is love.”
What do you think, do you find anything wrong with Mike Colter marrying a white woman?
