Exactly! Struggling actors don't have the luxury to pick and choose what role they will play in a movie. At this stage of their lives, the thing uppermost in their mind, is to first get their feet into the door. More 'dignified' roles will come along later in their career, that is if they prove talented enough to have a second shot at acting.Congratulations to the brother Barkhad. He should take every single role who cares if they type cast him. He's an inspiration for young somali actors that look up to him and say if he can do why can't I. He's a success story that we should celebrate.
I never seen or met Somalis that self-identify as black just because there is a lack of African actors. Somalis don't have that chip on their shoulders. They aren't consumed with race.
Now let us watch....the Somali Liam Neeson
