Ribeiro has his own issues he’s been trying to work through during his career. He recently opened up about not feeling loved by black families due to his own interracial one. He points out that he gets comments from people constantly about his wife, who is white. He feels that because of this he exist in a weird middle ground where white people do not fully embrace him, nor do black people.

“So I’m in my own little world with support from almost no one, to be in love with someone I’ve fallen in love with. How does that make sense? It doesn’t. We all want to live in a world where everyone is accepted for being and loving and living the way they choose to live. I will support any person that wants to live in a world that they want to live in. I’ll support a racist person to live in a world that they want to live in. They don’t have to be around me.”
