From The Wire to Black Panther, Michael B Jordan is an actor as determined to break down diversity barriers as he is to break box office records. It’s an ongoing fight for the star of Creed II and when it comes to getting his life lessons across he doesn’t pull any punches…
In his words: “Why does it take somebody to feel like they’re close to us for us to see their humanity? Why can’t we see the humanity in people that are distant from us?”
In other words: Don’t just respond to the needs of family and friends. If we see suffering, we should have empathy with whoever is in pain because we understand their plight even we don’t know them.
In his words: “Sometimes you’ve gotta hide the medicine in the food. You can’t slap somebody in the face with facts all the time. It’s too harsh.”
In other words: If you have a message to get across, don’t feel you have to force it on people. If you can communicate in more subtle ways, it can be just as effective.
In his words:“I think redemption is about righting a wrong – and in that pursuit it’s about trying. You can stumble, you can make mistakes, but it’s about trying to do the right thing.”
In other words: Striving to do what’s right is more important than how you do it. You might take a wrong turn along the way but working out the right destination justifies the journey.
In his words: “Sometimes you gotta go with your first instinct. You gotta go with your gut. That’s kind of how I live my life: you gotta go with your gut.”
In other words: Don’t overthink things. When you are dealing with your own life, trust in yourself that you will make the right decision.
In his words: “When you got to make the decisions, when you get a chance to employ people, put key people of colour [and] women in those positions that are really going to make a difference.”
In other words: The world is changing and we all have a duty to support diversification, be it people of colour, women, LGBTQ people or those with disabilities. All lives matter.
In his words: “To the trolls on the internet, I want to say: get your head out of the computer. Go outside and walk around. Look at the people walking next to you. Look at your friends’ friends and who they’re interacting with. And just understand this is the world we live in. It’s OK to like it.”
In other words: Don’t hide behind a screen and preach hate. It’s a big world out there and life is too short to spend it promoting negativity. You won’t change your prejudices by closing yourself off.
In his words: “I’m first and foremost a black man, but what I’m trying to do, represent and build is universal.”
In other words: The message of inclusion isn’t about race or gender; it’s about equality and doing right by all.
In his words: “My path is my path. I can’t take nothing away from nobody and nobody can take nothing away from me. I’m running my race. But we can still encourage each other.”
In other words: Don’t allow others to discourage your ambitions and don’t do the same to them. Offer words of support. That way, we can all help each other.

(NEW YORK) — With the release of his latest film Creed II, Michael B. Jordan fans are getting to see the actor in a totally different light. In the sports action drama, Jordan plays a boxing champion and a new father who must learn how to adapt to a child with a disability.
Although it’s only through the film that Jordan is experiencing fatherhood for the first time, the actor does admit that he definitely wants children of his own one day.
“Of course, you’re in there, you’re with this this infant, this little baby and stuff like that,” Jordan tells ABC Radio. “And I love kids, you know.”
Yet, with no real experience to help him prepare for his fatherly role, Jordan says he was still able to dig deep to find his paternal instincts.
“[I] definitely get into that mind state of being a young father, young dad,” he says. “All of, what would the insecurities be? What would the worries [be]? Like what would Adonis be going through in that moment? So, I definitely felt that.”
Creed II, also starring Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson and Phylicia Rashad, in now in theaters.
