As a person of color, with every role I play, I carry a certain amount of responsibility to my community. There's no denying the fact that, whether you want to be or not, you're forced into being a role model because there are so few to look to. Today, there's a real sense of pride that runs through the community when one of our own makes it.

Benjamin Bratt, 1995
