VIDEO: Jada Pinkett Smith Admits She’s Bias Against White Women With Blonde Hair. Here’s What She Had to Say.

Interesting.

Actress Jada Pinkett Smith recently discussed how she is prejudiced against white women with blonde hair, noting that she would even reconsider doing an interview with a blonde white woman.

Just imagine if a white actress said this about black women? Her career would go swirly down the drain at warp speed, no questions asked. Granted, she goes on to denounce this kind of behavior, but even then, if roles were reversed, folks would be demanding blood.

“I have to admit I’m guilty to that to a certain degree because I do have my own biases, specifically to blonde women,” Pinkett Smith said on an episode of “Red Table Talk,” appearing alongside her mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones and daughter Willow Smith.

“Blonde hair on white women just triggers me,” said the 47-year-old. “I’ve had to catch myself.”

Pinkett Smith was speaking in the context of race relations and the “divide” between white women and people of color. Up front, the actress told the audience that speaking about race honestly is a sensitive topic often met with outrage. “I got some serious biases and prejudices, myself,” she admitted.

“I think what crushes me, specifically in my relationship with white women, the thing that really breaks my heart is that white women understand what it feels to be oppressed,” she said.

“Because of their sex,” said Willow, 17.

“Exactly. Because of their sex,” replied Pinkett Smith. “What it feels like to be ostracized or not being treated as an equal.”

“Blonde hair on white women just triggers me,” said the actress.

When asked if she had some sort of traumatic experience with someone who had blonde hair, Pinkett-Smith answered in the affirmative, stating she remembers being teased by white women growing up, including digs taken at her about her hair.

“Absolutely. All throughout my childhood. I do remember experiencing being teased by white women in regards to my hair, how I looked, feeling belittled,” Pinkett Smith answered.

“I was going to do an interview with this blonde woman and I thought twice about it. I thought, ‘I don’t know if I want to do that.’ That was my first instinct because of how she looked!” Pinkett Smith continued.

“And I was like, ‘Oh! That’s no different.’ That doesn’t give me the right to clump all blonde women in one,” she explained. “And look at me, I got blonde hair! It’s no different than you getting robbed by a black guy once and now you’re saying all black dudes are thieves and dangerous.”

Pinkett-Smith is absolutely spot on in her assessment about needing to catch the prejudice in her own heart, which is something she seems to personally be working on. That’s admirable, as most celebrities speak about equality out of one side of their mouth, while being racist themselves to a degree.

The truth of the matter is, we all, to some degree, carry a bit of prejudice around with us and it’s something that believers in Christ need to really work on putting to death. We are called to live like Jesus and that means treating all people with love and respect as image bearers of God.

Chris Cuomo Troubles Increase After Sexual Misconduct Allegations Surface

There doesn’t appear to be much upside for Chris Cuomo at the moment.

In a move that was surprisingly appropriate for CNN, Chris Cuomo’s employment has been terminated.

The network, which merely suspended one of its other contributors after he masturbated on a Zoom call with his colleagues, opened an investigation into allegations that Cuomo used his media resources to aid his brother, former New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo, as he grappled with approximately a dozen credible accusations of improper sexual behavior.

It is now being revealed that these siblings had a lot more in common than previously thought.

A former co-worker of Chris Cuomo made a sexual misconduct allegation against the former CNN anchor, who was fired Saturday for misleading the cable network about the extent of the role he played trying to mitigate the sexual harassment accusations that took down his brother, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

A well known employment lawyer who represents the accuser contacted CNN Wednesday to tell them of the allegation, according to The New York Times.

The incident did not occur within the CNN company.

The woman who leveled the unknown accusations against Chris Cuomo, 51, was a former “junior colleague” at another news network, according to Debra Katz, the accuser’s lawyer, the paper said. The allegation was reportedly not connected to the cascade of accusations that led Andrew Cuomo to resign from office in the face of impeachment four months ago.

The younger Cuomo had attempted to downplay his pre-termination suspension from CNN as “embarrassing” during an episode of his personal podcast last week.

CUOMO KAPUT! CNN Takes Bold Action After Anchor’s Unconscionable Behavior

CNN has had enough of their primetime star’s scurrilous behavior.

Published

on

The moral ambiguity of the mainstream media took a backseat this week, at least in one decision made by CNN, after primetime star Chris Cuomo was once again embroiled in an abhorrent scandal.

Cuomo, the younger brother of disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, had earlier been caught using his vast media resources in an effort to help the Empire State lawmaker plot a PR strategy to combat a scandal of his own:  Being credibly accused of sexually assaulting and harassing at least one dozen women, some of whom were employees of the governor at the time.

Now it has been revealed that the pundit also went so far as to contact some of his brother’s accusers, which was a step too far for CNN.

CNN has suspended prime time anchor Chris Cuomo “indefinitely, pending further evaluation,” after new documents revealed the cozy and improper nature of his relationship with aides to his brother, former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

A second hour of “Anderson Cooper 360” aired in Cuomo’s place on Tuesday night. A town hall about Covid-19 will air Wednesday night.

Tuesday’s announcement about the suspension was the equivalent of a cable news shockwave. Cuomo’s 9 p.m. program is frequently CNN’s most-watched hour of the day. He is a larger-than-life presence at the network. And he was determined to stay on TV this year despite a flurry of sexual misconduct allegations against his brother, which culminated in the governor’s resignation three months ago.

The network did not mince their words.

“The New York Attorney General’s office released transcripts and exhibits Monday that shed new light on Chris Cuomo’s involvement in his brother’s defense,” a CNN spokesperson said Tuesday evening. “The documents, which we were not privy to before their public release, raise serious questions.”
“When Chris admitted to us that he had offered advice to his brother’s staff, he broke our rules and we acknowledged that publicly,” the spokesperson continued. “But we also appreciated the unique position he was in and understood his need to put family first and job second.”
“However, these documents point to a greater level of involvement in his brother’s efforts than we previously knew,” the spokesperson added. “As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation.”
There is no telling how long Cuomo could be sidelined, or if a return to CNN is even possible given what we know about the egregiousness of his actions.
