Actress Jada Pinkett Smith, 47, spoke openly in a candid interview about having her own biases to overcome, particularly with blonde white women. According to People, Pinkett Smith sat down on Monday's episode of Red Table Talk to share that she had to catch herself when she notices these biases coming out.
On her television series Red Table Talk, Pinkett Smith sits down with her daughter, 18-year-old Willow, and mother Adrienne to discuss real-life issues including life, love, motherhood, and family. On this particular episode Pinkett Smith held nothing back in talking about her experiences with white women. After having negative experiences with blonde women in the past and being ridiculed for her race as a child, Pinkett Smith says that she finds she is particularly triggered by women of that hair color.
The actress even admitted she once almost skipped an interview upon realizing that the woman who was to interview her was a blonde white woman. "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! And I was like, 'Oh! That's no different.' That doesn't give me the right to clump all blonde women in one," she continued. "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," she said.
