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.

Sarah Sanders Pressed to Resign or Be Fired by CNN Analyst

You know that things are looking desperate when television entertainers start telling the White House who to hire and fire.

Published

on

The media is having a heyday with the Mueller report, warping and wilting the 400+ pages to match whichever narrative they see fit. The President continues to tout the idea of “total exoneration”, complete with his “no obstruction” line, but even the most magnanimous of “news” providers are cautioning that this is likely an erroneous or misleading statement.  The Mueller report specifically and unequivocally states otherwise, but we aren’t talking about guilt anymore…we’re talking about political culpability. In that context, President Trump’s flippant, hand-wringing responses are more for the court of public opinion than the actual courts, and all of this is in response to the hyperbolic and partisan media hackery that we’ve been subjected to over the course of the last 12 hours, nay, the last 22 months. And the world of infotainment isn’t done yet, either, as CNN analysts are now making suggestions as to how Trump should rearrange his staff based on their findings in the Mueller report itself. CNN political analyst April Ryan called for the firing of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Thursday, claiming Sanders “lied” to the media following the release of the Mueller report. In May 2017, following the turbulent firing of FBI Director James Comey, Sanders told reporters that “countless” FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey despite one reporter’s assertion that the “vast majority” of them supported his leadership. According to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, Sanders told investigators her claim was a “slip of the tongue” and was “in the heat of the moment,” admitting that it was not founded on anything. The White House’s current culture of upheaval notwithstanding, April Ryan’s understanding of the situation on Pennsylvania Avenue can only be interpreted through the lens of her position within the Washington infotainment industry, and is not indicate of…

According to TMZ, President Trump is Now Homophobic

Maybe TMZ should stick to covering which sports star is bedding which Kardashian this week, and leave the politics to the professionals.

If you’re looking for a lesson in character assassination, the mainstream media is a willing and powerful mentor. This “infotainment” industry has been clawing at the door, so to speak, when it comes to Donald Trump’s personal beliefs.  They’ve imbued every syllable ever spoken by the President on the subject of immigration with some form of racist connotation, in an attempt to flood the media landscape with doubt and anger. It’s fear mongering, no doubt, but in a world dominated by social media’s “resistance” schtick, this is the sort of anger-fuel that sells. TMZ is no stranger to this, making their bread and butter by proposing scandalous and salacious rumors about The Kardashians for years.  Now, as they move into politics, (something no one asked for), they are bringing the same tabloid terror to the proceedings. For instance, they’ve already assumed that President Trump will let his alleged inner homophobic thoughts loose should he go head to head with 2020 democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg. Monday on “TMZ Live” founder Harvey Levin asked South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg, a 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful, what he will do when President Donald Trump “absolutely, no doubt” makes homophobia part of his campaign against Buttigieg if he secures the Democratic nomination. Levin said, “If you end up going head to head with Donald Trump, you are an openly gay man and I have absolutely no doubt in my mind given Donald Trump’s history that the campaign will get homophobic in some way. How are you going to deal with that? Buttigieg answered, “I’m kinda used to that by now. I’m from Indiana. I’m gay as a—I don’t know, think of something really gay, and that is how gay I am. So I’m used to bullying.” There has been no evidence presented of this hateful personality trait…
