Diggs tells the story of a dark-skinned, curly-haired boy who is made fun of because of his appearance.
“I remembered being five years old and moving into this neighborhood  where none of the kids looked like me and were very inquisitive,” Diggs  remembered in an interview with Parade Magazine.  “Questioning why I looked the way I looked and why my hair was the way  it was. I remember feeling really awkward, like I didn’t fit in.”
