Nam Retupad is discussing:

Sargon, you mentioned the Boyegas would be considered privileged if they returned to Nigeria (true), and you mentioned privilege sometimes being hard earned (also true).

John Boyega would not have the privilege he has of being a lead actor in a massive film franchise if his parents hadn't "worked" to bring him to the UK and get him an education. So yes, he definitely has the privilege that any wealthy actor has (regardless of race, sex, etc.), but he got that privilege based on his and his parents efforts. He definitely wouldn't be starring in Star Wars if he was raised and living in Nigeria.
