  7. "I’m glad that Shonda Rhimes saw me and said "Why not?" That’s what makes her a visionary. That’s what makes her iconic. I think that beauty is subjective. I’ve heard that statement (less classically beautiful) my entire life. Being a dark-skinned Black woman, you heard it from the womb. And "classically not beautiful" is a fancy term for saying ugly. And denouncing you. And erasing you. Now…it worked when I was younger. It no longer works for me now. It’s about teaching a culture how to treat you. Because at the end of the day, you define you."
    — Viola Davis response to being called “classically not beautiful” in the NY Times article. (via thediaryofnikkiv)
