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.

‘Aquaman’ Jason Momoa Tells Chris Pratt Not To Use Plastic Water Bottles; Pratt Responds With ‘You’re Completely Right.’

Liberal Hollywood actors have a tendency to think more highly of themselves than they ought, and nothing points out this inflated ego than one crusader for a cause scolding a fellow actor for doing something that violates their delicate belief system. Which is precisely what happened when “Aquaman” star Jason Momoa took a swipe at his colleague, megastar Chris Pratt for using a plastic water bottle in a post he put up on social media. Here’s more from Daily Wire: Thankfully, however, Pratt diffused the situation with a gracious response, and Momoa followed that with a follow-up post calling Pratt an “inspiration.” “Bro [I] love [you] but [what the f***] on the water bottle,” Momoa complained in the comment section. “No single use plastic. [C]ome on.” The purpose of Pratt’s post was part of a collaboration with Amazon: “You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance… well, turns out I’m teaming up with [Amazon] to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020,” the movie star captioned the gym photo.   View this post on Instagram   You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance… well, turns out I’m teaming up with @amazon to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020. #FoundItOnAmazon #Amazon #Ad http://www.amazon.com/chrispratt A post shared by chris pratt (@prattprattpratt) on Dec 3, 2019 at 8:46am PST Pratt responded with, “Aquaman!

Superstar rap artist Kanye West, who has been all over the news for the last few months due to his open proclamation of Christian conversion, recently opened up about the making of his latest album set to be released soon, “Jesus Is King,” saying he told employees working on the album they had to abstain from pre-marital sex. West also went on to slam pornography saying it’s “not okay.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “When collaborating with others on ‘Jesus Is King,’ West set up some lifestyle guidelines that they would have to abide by in order be part of the project,” Billboard reported. “Yeezy asked others to fast during portions of creating and also not partake in any premarital sex at times, which he knew would receive some blowback once it became public.” “There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album,” West told Lowe, noting, “When people pray together and fast together, the power is increased.” The 42-year-old explained that he no longer views himself as a “slave” to the music industry, but as a “free” “son of God” spreading the gospel. West went on to talk about how he feels he has now been called to spread the gospel with his platform, noting how he used to talk about high fashion, alcohol, and others things that had a profound impact on his life. But now, however, all that’s changed. Jesus is what he’s all about now. “Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me. I’ve spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting…
