*In Steve Stoute’s  provocative online series “The Tanning Effect,” actress Gwyneth Paltrow lends readers her thoughts about racial diversity in the industry and the Black community.

“I don’t want to bemoan the fact that it should’ve happened 50 years ago, because it’s here now. And it’s like the way I see it is that I have two little kids who are understanding the world in a time when Rihanna is on the cover of Vogue, and we have a black president. So their eyes are being as if they’re experiencing the world for the first time. All of this stuff is just root – it’s normal stuff for them. And that to me is what’s so incredible.”

She further explained that her children are a demonstration of new hope and openness as they are experiencing the world as if looking through kaleidoscope of colors and shapes.

“Their perspective on race and everything is completely open and completely different to how it was when I was a kid.”
