'I Experience Racism As Often As I Breathe!' My Parents Taught Me That In Order To Make It 'I Have To Be Twice As Good As The White Man' - Idris Elba

Idris Elba has said that asking him about racism is akin to asking 'how long I have been breathing.' 

While taking part in The Reckoning: The Arts And Black Lives Matter event, on Friday, the Luther actor, 47, also revealed how his parents instilled in him that in order to make it 'you have to be twice as good as the white man.' 

During the live-streamed discussion about the Black Lives Matter movement and the arts, Idris explained that his success has not 'negated' his experience of racism.
