Dear Mr. Lindo,
My name is Matt Winick and I’m a fan of your acting. My favorite movie that you played in was Da a 5 Bloods. Da a 5 Bloods was a great movie about a group of African American Vietnam War veterans who return to Vietnam to look for the remains of their squad leader who had died during the Vietnam along with find a treasure. Mr. Lindo, I thought you did an excellent job portraying as Paul because I liked on how you made Paul have different unique traits like working hard to overcome his struggles with PTSD, working hard to have a friendship with David, Otis, Eddie, and Melvin when they have differences, and many others. Da a 5 Bloods did a great job showing what it was like for African Americans during the Vietnam War on how they had faced discrimination, the need for friendships when there are challenges, and many others. My favorite mini-series that you played in were Soul of the Game and Glory and Honor. Soul of The Game was a great historical mini-series about the African American baseball players Stachel Paige, Josh Gibson, Branch Rickey, and Jackie Robinson who start playing in the Negro League and has to work hard to overcome different obstacles like facing discrimination based on the color of skin and many others. Soul of The Game did an excellent job showing what it was like for African American baseball players facing discrimination the Baseball sport. In Soul of the Game, you really did an excellent job making Stachel Paige a great historical figure because I really like on how you made him have different traits like being a mentor for Jackie Robinson when he starts in the Negro League, working hard to overcome different obstacles like facing hate due to his color of skin, and many others. Glory and Honor was another movie that I liked about two explorers Robert Peary and Matthew Henson who go on a journey to the North Pole and their exploration of the Artic.
Besides your acting career, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes to reduce discrimination. Also I like on how you use your role as an African American to help support Black Lives Matters Movement to speak out against racial injustice and raise money to help African American communities be repaired or get different supplies ranging from food through school supplies. Also on your activism I really like on how you support environmental protection causes to reduce pollution, express the need for criminal justice reform (drug treatment programs to reduce drug abuse, a strong need for reducing racial profiling to help protect minorities including immigrants from being oppressed, and a need for DNA testing including forensic science to help solve cases including evidence efficiently while reduce sending an innocent person to jail), and many others. Mr. Lindo, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights causes really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also your role in historical based movie and historical mini-series helps give me motivation to continue to learn history including social justice. In history, I like to learn the need for civil rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, the importance of having health care reform to help people with pre-existing conditions or who can’t afford health insurance get the care they need, a strong need for criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others. Also another thing that I like to learn in history and currently is how famous people including individuals (minorities, women, and people with disabilities) on how they work hard to make a significant difference for society,
I strongly believe that you are a very talented actor. You do such an excellent job making your characters have different unique traits. You have inspire me to work hard on my disability, be a fan of your work, and continue to learn history including social justice. Also I have provided you a small donation to help your cause. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. Please continue to work hard to make a great difference.
