Isaac Cole Powell is an American actor and singer. His father, Will Powell, is a three-time world CrossFit champion.
His father is African-American and his mother is white.
He has said:
I pass as a white person and am afforded white privilege so I don’t feel like I was ever discriminated against – at least not to my face – and it’s not like I’m trying to pass. These are just the cards I was dealt. So no, I didn’t really experience racism towards myself, but I was privy to it. I encountered a lot of ignorance from people who didn’t know my dad was black and thought they could get away with saying certain things – certain, um, words – around me.
Isaac’s paternal grandfather is William J. “Billy” Powell (the son of William “Will” Powell and Elmira Giles). Isaac’s great-grandfather William was born in South Carolina. Elmira was born in South Carolina, the daughter of Mary E.
