“It is tough, he is five years old, he was recently, he is tough but at the same time we tried not to emphasize that situation, because a 5 year old child is not expected to know that difference (…)”, started by saying.
Matay confessed that he “sagrado” with the sentence said by the son and later revealed the answer he gave him:
“It seems that the body breaks, the body breaks and we try to find a way here to show you that there is nothing wrong (…) I told him “it doesn’t hurt son, there is no harm in you having the same color as daddy, we are black and proud” and from here is to try to deconstruct. Nowadays we can see superheroes, cartoons, there are books, and it is using these tools to value them ”, he said.
