Jada Pinkett Smith Admits to Struggling with Bias: ‘Blonde Hair on White Women Just Triggers Me’

ALEXIA FERNANDEZ, November 12, 2018 08:01 PM

Jada Pinkett Smith is revealing what “triggers” her about white women.

On Monday’s episode of Red Table Talk, the 47-year-old actress [and wife of Will Smith] spoke about the relationship between white women and women of color, and revealed a surprising revelation of how she views the former.

“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,” Pinkett Smith said.

Her 17-year-old daughter, Willow, chimed in, “Because of their sex.”

“Exactly. Because of their sex,” the mother of two agreed. “What it feels like to be ostracized or not being treated as an equal.”

Pinkett Smith admitted to her own biases, saying, “I have to admit I’m guilty to that to a certain degree because I do have my own biases, specifically to blonde women.”

“Blonde hair on white women just triggers me,” the Girls Trip star said while snapping her fingers. “I’ve had to catch myself.”

“Do you have a specific incident with someone who had blonde hair?” her mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, asked.

“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 said.

“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.”

Pinkett Smith’s observations reflect a fairly impressive level of self-awareness and objectivity by Current Year standards. These days more typically you just get told raw feelings with no attempt at perspective.

    I have one simple question:

    When men went off to war and got themselves killed, maimed and traumatized while the women stayed back at camp, were they oppressing women?

    I mean, if men were any good at oppressing, they would have sent the women off as cannon fodder while they stayed home, smoked cigars and laughed about whole situation.

    As Jordan Peterson said, anyone who thinks women are oppressed has never been married to one. Just try oppressing one–it’s far from easy.

    Switch the race and see how it plays out. A white woman saying, e.g. “black women trigger me,” “I thought twice about doing an interview with a black woman,” “throughout my childhood I remember being teased by black women, feeling belittled,” and see how that plays out in the realm of objectivity by Current Year standards…

    The racial double standard prevails…blacks can say things whites can’t. Everybody strives for Pokemon points. Women are oppressed, black women more so, say black women…

    If someone admitted being triggered by how a non white looks, I doubt they’d get sympathy at all from any media outlet. If someone said black people triggered them and they had to catch themselves because they were teased when they were young, they’d get a big fat lecture about white frailty.

    Jada can be self reflective because she doesn’t live in a world where she has to watch what she says about race. She is black and her word is thus revered on the subject of race. Though years back even she got called out at Harvard simply for referring to marriage as something between men and women as part of an anecdote.

    It’s a little nuts to me. If I lived in. 100 acre 27000 sa foot house in Malibu, I wouldn’t be jealous of anybody, even if their hair were 1000 times better than mine.

    Did an aeronautical equivalent of anti-lock brakes kill the Lion Air flight?

    In the past, anti-stall systems have either issued audible warnings to pilots or, as in newer systems, used a sensory feedback system that warns the pilot by putting more resistance on the aircraft’s control stick or yoke when the pilot is approaching the critical angle. But the new system in the 737 uses data from the aircraft’s AOA and airspeed sensors to proactively counter pilot error, adjusting the aircraft’s controls to push the nose down if the sensors indicate the aircraft could stall.
    Initial data from the investigation of the crash of Lion Air Flight 610 indicates that the AOA sensor was providing “erroneous input,” according to a Boeing statement. The aircraft had recently had an AOA sensor replaced, and had experienced additional unidentified issues; a maintenance technician was aboard at the time of the crash, but not because of the AOA sensor.

    Pilots weren’t told how to work around this because the whole point of this system was to work around the pilots.

    It happened alright, except Black women with kinky hair get teased and belittled by other Black women for not having “good” hair, not by White women. They project the abuse as originating from Whites becuase they rationalize that it is only happening because Blacks have been brainwashed into thinking their Black characteristics are inferior.
    Another variation on the theme is the Black fabrications about how White people are always trying to touch their hair. That is definitely a never happened.

    It’s clear that Pinkett Smith suffers from a clear case of envy of blond women. She knows she simply can’t compete with them for male attention.

  23. Blonde hair seems to be the most triggering thing in the universe. Lots of men like blondes, but lots of men also like brunettes, redheads, chubby girls, girls with flat asses, or whatever, and lots don’t care at all. Women who can’t change this in a convincing fashion are often obsessed with it. I would think it was Hollywood, but then the Roman women used barbarian blonde hair for wigs 1800 years ago. It can’t be the fact that it is rarer than brown hair, since it seems to hold even when blondes are the majority. What is it?

  24. 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!

  28. Women’s views on race are dominated by appearance, not behavior. They are much more likely to believe racial differences are “only skin deep.” It’s logically possible that the races could differ in both appearance and behavior, but women tend to focus so much on appearance that they think any other differences must be insignificant. To them, being black is like being a frumpy librarian with glasses who might actually be super fun and sexy if you just gave her a chance.

    The “hair touching” meme is a cultural remembrance, sort of like stories of more hirsuite men being accosted in East Asia or, to this day, westerners getting gawked at in less cosmopolitan areas of China.

    Something that happens at first contact but quickly moved passed once the novelty is gone, except as in-group stories.

    The difference is when Tom or Jane come back from China with tales of strangers wanting to take a picture of them, it’s just a quirky aside. When Jada imagines someone wanting to touch her hair (maybe in kindergarten?) it’s a devastating blow to one’s esteem and identity from nefarious, institutionalized oppressors, who are quick to take on the form of nose-picking five year olds.

    I’m thinking here….of all the places a Hollywood power couple could choose……only Manhattan Beach might equal Malibu on a blondeness scale.

    BTW – Even setting the current firestorm aside, I’ve always thought of Malibu as an exceptionally difficult place to get in and out of. The setting is spectacular, of course, and it offers the big lots you can’t get in a Brentwood and most certainly not in Manhattan Beach. But if you had to go back and
    forth to Universal every day…..Personally I’d find that to be a pain.

    I believe the Smiths live at the Sherwood Forest golf club in Thousand Oaks, about 10 miles inland from Malibu. Lots of fires in that area, although I imagine having a giant sprinkler system helps in fighting fires.

    It’s kind of a jock / businessman / Republican celebrity club: e.g., Wayne Gretzky plays there. I was there a few years ago for a social event and I noticed that the president of the club then was real estate developer Dan Selleck, the 6’7″ little brother of Tom Selleck. Dan was the center on my high school basketball team when I was a freshman. It took me years to convince my friends later on when Tom Selleck became a star that Dan had to be his brother.

    A thousand times this.

    And if a man stand his ground all the same (to being the head of the household or at least an equal partner, not to attempt oppression), the woman will often simply call the police. He will be arrested and barred from his residence for a week or so with no due process, followed by formal divorce rape with the ostensible due process of a kangaroo court wherein he shall have his material possessions stripped of him, be alienated from his children save four days each month, and be enslaved to work for the woman and live in his car (he’ll have insufficient remaining money for any housing in many of not most cases) all on pain of imprisonment.

    With women so oppressed, imagine how horrible it would be for victims of divorce-rape if women were liberated! It boggles the mind what that might entail. Perhaps daily sodomy with an electric cattle prod would be added to the man’s torments?

    Much easier access to someplace like Universal, to be sure. High School teacher colleague of my Dad’s lived with his family in Lake Sherwood. Vaguely remember visiting there a few times as a kid in the late 60s. I recall it being rustic, almost mountain cabin-like. I’m sure the place is gone, either this fire or the half-dozen or so others that have swept through the area since. And no doubt replaced with a 12,000 sf neo-Mediterranean place.

    That said, Malibu can be a pain. Carson was one of Pt Dume’s more famous residents. Getting to Burbank every day was no fun, even then. Sure helps when other people do the driving. LOL FYI – Remember – Kanan-Dume road wasn’t even finished until 1974. That left Malibu Canyon..and ONLY Malibu Canyon.

    Pickett Smith’s trauma from being triggered by blond hair simply reflects three traditional traits of female behavior:

    1. Reacting to some small issue in a highly emotional manner because it is perceived to be symbolic of something more important. “If you loved me, you would put the toilet seat down!”

    2. Blurring the line between reality and fantasy. (Female version of Larry David and George Costanza) If it feels true, it is true.

    There are a lot more stunning brunettes in Hollywood. Are the last four even natural blondes? This lady should chill with the blond crap and deal with her anti-nordicism. She is triggered by blond hair because she hates white people and blondes are hyper-white.

    I went to a very “diverse” high school in Berkeley, California.

    On my first day of classes, as I was walking through the main hallway, two large black female students were shouting at each other in front of an open locker. I turned to look at them mainly out of surprise, as their voices were so loud.

    “Whatchoo lookin’ at white boy!” they both angrily yelled at me. I quickly kept moving.

    Does anyone really think that a young white woman in high school would get away with teasing a black female about her hair, or even dream of doing so?

    I, too, call bull. The stories I could tell about blacks “oppressing” whites at my high school are far worse than anything Jada Pinkett Smith seems to have experienced. We mostly just learned how to deal with it and get tougher ourselves. It certainly didn’t scar us for life.

  82. I think she has a point. On most white women, fake blonde hair doesn’t work. The dyeing process makes the hair look damaged, dry and lifeless. (It also destroys the pleasing natural smell).

    But the major problem is that blonde hair only really works when matched with just the right skin tone. There’s a certain kind of glowing, finely pored, reddish-golden skin tone (that only a small minority of whites have) that looks gorgeous with blonde hair. Think of a young Sarah Michelle Gellar, or a young Anna Kournikova.

    But if you’ve got paler white skin then blonde hair doesn’t work at all. Such paler-skinned white women are much better off staying with their healthy natural color, or perhaps adding a subtle hint of red to their naturally brown shade.

    Anyway, isn’t the current trend for women to mess with their hair so much, endless coloring and curling and so on, actually overdoing things a bit? (At least perms are no longer a thing).

    Agree with MikeatMikedotMike on the reply. Smith had the great common sense, and he’s said so in numerous interviews, to concentrate on big-budget blockbuster movies, and to do the occasional “serious” movie to burnish his acting credentials. He strikes me as straight in the same that Tom Cruise is straight. Nothing obviously untoward, but definitely not a skirt chaser, either. Also, the whole flirting with Scientology thing seems to have a large male contingent. Jada never struck me as being too overt when she was still a real actress, but in hindsight that seems it could be the case.

    I happen to find blonde hair very beautiful, but you have to understand that this reference is never about the haircolor. (Sorry for being a broken record to those who have read my comments on this before.) Blonde hair is really meant as a shorthand for features associated with a northern European kind of beauty, namely a delicate bone structure and fine complexion. I always bring up the example of Melina Mercouri and Catherine Deneuve. Both actresses bleached their hair to a light blonde, but Mercouri was a green-eyed natural blonde (light as a child, dirty blonde as an adult), and Deneuve was a brown-eyed medium brunette. Which of the two is considered a “blonde”? Which of the two is the kind of woman Jade Pinkett Smith is referring to?

    I’m not sure Elizabeth Montgomery was blond. The earliest show I saw her in was a ‘Twilight Zone’ episode ( with Charles Bronson) and she was a brunette ‘Eve’ in post apocalypse world.

    By far, the most interesting aspect of the war on white women and blonde hair is the revealed preference vis-a-vis Judith Rich Harris’ theory of selection for white skin:

    I believe, though I cannot prove it, that three—not two—selection processes were involved in human evolution. The first two are familiar: natural selection, which selects for fitness, and sexual selection, which selects for sexiness. The third process selects for beauty, but not sexual beauty—not adult beauty. The ones doing the selecting weren’t potential mates: they were parents. Parental selection, I call it…

    I think it’s pretty obvious that when you read between the lines with complaints like Pinkett-Smith’s and also Thessaly La Force’s, that there is a big heap of jealousy involved, but note that it often manifests itself not as adult jealousy of sexy blonde women but as relived childhood jealousy of other, beautiful blonde children.

    Here in Japan, lots of girls want to be blonde princesses, and the women want blonde babies. My guess is that this pattern lives itself out worldwide, even among lots of brunette white girls and women.

    “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 said.

    The teasing might have happened, but note that feeling belittled can happen along with teasing rather than as a result of it.

So, on a true blonde sometimes there’s this little patch of bleached peach fuzz on her thighs between the hem line of her shorts and where the bottom of her bathing suit starts. On a guy it would look ridiculous, Austin Powers’ chest hair like, but on a neotenous woman, it’s attractive.

    Excellent point. “Tow-headedness” is an interesting phenomenon. Looking at childhood pictures of myself, I had blond hair a lot of the time up to maybe age 6 (although I’d have to look closer to see how much my hair changed color from summer pictures to Christmas pictures). But after about age 6 I had roughly light brown hair. So, it’s not a puberty thing. Perhaps light colored hair is a sign of being a small child? And then when you get to be that long, more carefree period of childhood from, say, 7 to 11 when nothing much is happening and you can better fend for yourself, you stop being so towheaded?

    Same here. The school was over half white, about evenly split between lower and middle/upper middle class white kids, about a third black (probably 80% of them lower class), and everybody else the remaining 15% or so.

    Most of the bullying/picking on, fighting, etc. was in-group, but to the extent it got outside those boundaries it would almost always be a black kid deciding they needed to beat up some white kid for some perceived slight.

    And I will say that I witnessed plenty of loud and pointed criticism of black girls looks and hair – but exclusively by other blacks. I am guessing Ms Pinkett-Smith has been subjected to far more nasty treatment from other black kids growing up than from white blonde girls, but that doesn’t fit into the oppression narrative.

    Mike Enoch recently noted that women often oppose standards that they meet themselves, suggesting that we do this in order to make ourselves look better by comparison, and perhaps reduce the pool of competition that is up to snuff.

    There is probably at least some truth to this accusation, but it is certainly not the whole story. I hold myself to very high standards of cultural literacy, but I don’t think every woman is obliged to be as ambitious in this respect as I am. Very fit, thin women often feel the same. Just because they spend two hours a day in the gym doesn’t mean they think everyone should, or indeed could even if they wanted to. Like men, we have different values, interests, and priorities.

    Maybe it came first, indicated childhood status, created associations between childhood status and light tones, and thus mediated selection of light skin tones. However, personally, I think judgement of beauty is probably complex in origin. Environmental color change is a fundamental aspect of experience, occurring seasonally, daily, cyclically, linearly, emotionally, with health status, ripeness, etc. Like fast food, our lives are supersaturated with visual stimulation. I suspect it is hard for us appreciate visual aspects of life in nature or tease out its influences on our preferences. So Harris might be identifying something else.

I don’t treat blacks with broad noses poorly, but I find it unappealing; to the the point of distraction if it’s pronounced enough. Her nose doesn’t seem too bad, BTW.

    My kid brother similarly had light to dirty blonde hair until maybe the age of six or so when he got his first short flat top haircut, after which his hair was much more on the brown side of dirty blonde. By about the age of ten or twelve you’d never think he was ever blonde. I think it’s at least possible that exposing the longer hair to sun even in the short days of winter is partially responsible for the lighter color – the short haircuts keep the hair young and virgin without sufficient sun exposure. Since that first flat top he has never worn his hair long enough to test the hypothesis that sun exposure could return the hair to a more pronounced blonde color.

    Conversely, the red and auburn colors in my brown hair would emerge in streaks only in the summer, but my beard has always been primarily red (I’ve never worn facial hair beyond 3-4 days of grooming negligence).

    On our mother’s side there are a lot of white blondes, strawberry blondes, and redheads all of which are a resilient colors extending well into adulthood and old age when all of these colors sort of merge into the same shade of white.

    Regarding women and their standards, I observed a classic phenomenon in the dating universe: A pretty-but-insecure girl will make friends with a less attractive “wingwoman.” She will take her along when they go out to clubs and so forth. This makes the “pretty girl” look better in comparison, and she is invariably the one who catches a boy.

    In my experience there are two strategies that the same girl can employ depending upon what she’s looking for in the “dating” market.

    Partnering with a less attractive girl in open social situations (bars and clubs) seems the better strategy for weeding out and selecting long term dating prospects. One or two less attractive girls provide company but aren’t intimidating enough to preclude approaches by even most “Nice Guys.”

    Going to open social situations with a larger group of equally attractive or more attractive girls seems to be a strategy for attracting more bold, jerky men for short term hookups.

    There’s just too much color range included in what is regularly called blonde to distinguish “true blonde.” .

    The blonde women I’ve dated and married (one) were naturally blonde (childhood pictures confirming), though their hair darkened as they aged, and so they colored their hair to maintain the blonde.

    Most women that get away with “being blonde” are using highlights or bleaching, and it’s a giveaway to spot. Forget the carpets and curtains analysis–one look at their eyebrows (if not their roots) are a dead giveaway.

    And then the current fashion these days is hardwood flooring–no carpets…

    You might be thinking of a certain skin tone found in some Polish/Ukrainian/German women.

    More to the point, it’s a form of bandwagoning cum (false) humble-bragging–and for that reason, it’s is almost always and exclusively women who say these things, of any race about any such historical cliches.

    The black women with people wanting to touch their hair is a zero sum false brag–to act desired, while dismissing the obvious–that roughly NO ONE wants to touch black hair, and most Whites, Asians and Hispanics have a vitriolic response to even thinking they came in contact with a stray black piece of fur. On a door handle, a subway strap, a toilet seat, floating in the air…

    White women still try to sell the “everyone in Japan was staring at me” stuff too, when most of the men there would rather read a comic about a giant octopus with dildos for arms coming after a young school girl while her mom watches in distress.

    I’ve found blacks tend to have a running narrative in their head, full of every cliche (almost all positive) in the book, that they think White people are going around thinking. They tend to think White people are busy praising them or “fearing them” (a humble brag meant to inflate their sense of ferocity), when the former is almost always virtue signaling and the latter is based upon statistical likelihood, and whites attention to civility more than personal one-on-one fear (at least with white men). That’s one of the reasons you will often hear blacks say, “you know how (white) people say ____”, followed by something like ‘we can dance” or “we make great lovers” or “they wish they had our dark skin”. They are obsessed with white people, period.

But, I do have a reaction that was depicted in paintings of relatives who swear by the French connection: histamines that cause a rash to the neck & decolletage when excited, upset, angry or drinking alcohol…hahaa.

    Upside: I got a lot, a lot of attention for my looks (white skin & platinum hair) back-in-the-day…but I was also, very funny (or at least, I want to believe that!). There is something weird about being blonde, but it has more to do with other people’s ideas of what that means. As a real blonde, I have no idea what the aura of being blonde means – I suspect it goes back to childhood memories or fairy tales.

    I have no idea what Jada is talking about (it’s sad and stupid) – I also, never have had an argument, of any kind, with Black or Latino women, ever. I have very close friends of every ethnic group…however, they all bring up my blondness and fairness…which is weird now that I am old can reflect back on that. Another upside: Strawberries hang-on to their natural hair color the longest.

    My husband (Irish/Italian) had straight, white-blond hair until he was 3 or so, and then it gradually darkened to brown. When he was 12 or 13 it started to curl, to the point that I was shocked the first time I saw his childhood photos because his curly brown hair was such a visual cue for me.

    Yes, I do think it is so sad that women do not realize how wonderful it is to have your own children! However, most people who chose acting, are fragile and often, messed up young adults.

I admire the actors (women also) who stay boring…who live a normal, boring life. I think it is very hard to be boring if you are a performer. The soul of a performer always needs stuff/excitement…but when you are close to 60 you realize that you just needed friends and a spouse, and a snoring dog or purring cat…and your kids calling you on Sunday.

    There used to, and might still be, an anti-stall device on commercial jets called a “Stick Shaker”. When the aircraft approached a stall condition, the control stick would start violently shaking. This was meant to warn the pilots to take corrective measures immediately. This usually involves increasing airspeed ASAP by lowering the nose, increasing thrust, etc.
    There was a crash of an Air India flight around 35 years ago where the stick shaker activated improperly, and the pilots responded by pushing the stick forward to drop the nose and gain airspeed immediately (as they had been trained to do) and flew the plane into the ground.
    This current crash would not be the first time a safety feature caused an accident.

All blondes have their points, except perhaps the metallic ones who are as blond as a Zulu under the bleach and as to disposition as soft as a sidewalk. There is the small cute blonde who cheeps and twitters, and the big statuesque blonde who straight-arms you with an ice-blue glare. There is the blonde who gives you the up-from-under look and smells lovely and shimmers and hangs on your arm and is always very very tired when you take her home. She makes that helpless gesture and has that goddamned headache and you would like to slug her except that you are glad you found out about the headache before you invested too much time and money and hope in her. Because the headache will always be there, a weapon that never wears out and is as deadly as the bravo’s rapier or Lucrezia’s poison vial.

    There is the soft and willing and alcoholic blonde who doesn’t care what she wears as long as it is mink or where she goes as long as it is the Starlight Roof and there is plenty of dry champagne. There is the small perky blonde who is a little pal and wants to pay her own way and is full of sunshine and common sense and knows judo from the ground up and can toss a truck driver over her shoulder without missing more than one sentence out of the editorial in the Saturday Review. There is the pale, pale blonde with anemia of some non-fatal but incurable type. She is very languid and very shadowy and she speaks softly out of nowhere and you can’t lay a finger on her because in the first place you don’t want to and in the second place she is reading The Waste Land or Dante in the original, or Kafka or Kierkegaard or studying Provençal. She adores music and when the New York Philharmonic is playing Hindemith she can tell you which one of the six bass viols came in a quarter of a beat too late. I hear Toscanini can also. That makes two of them.

    And lastly there is the gorgeous show piece who will outlast three kingpin racketeers and then marry a couple of millionaires at a million a head and end up with a pale rose villa at Cap Antibes, an Alfa-Romeo town car complete with pilot and co-pilot, and a stable of shopworn aristocrats, all of whom she will treat with the affectionate absent-mindedness of an elderly duke saying goodnight to his butler.

    The dream across the way was none of these, not even of that kind of world. She was unclassifiable, as remote and clear as mountain water, as elusive as its color.

    Drapes is the preferred nomenclature for social climbers, so works better when referring to that which is characteristically feminine.

    I went to a high school that was about 10% black, 30% upper middle class whites, 40% lower middle class whites and 20% rural/redneck whites. Most of the blacks were fine. However any of the interracial bullying was done by blacks. They seem to leave the rich kids alone and also the rednecks( who would always fight back and usually won the encounters). The black guys also wouldn’t bother hitting on the redneck girls.

    The worst beatdown I ever saw was a godzilla like black girl pounding the crap out of a little blonde white girl. This white girl was always dating black guys. No whites would intervene . Probably because they were afraid that other blacks would join in and also because no one cared about a” N-word lover’ The black girls were cheering Godzilla on and the black guys were laughing . The girl did miss some time in school because of the beating and she transferred to another school the next term.

    Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary, angels and various saints were also frequently depicted as blondes in medieval paintings:

    Interestingly, we know from reconstruction efforts that statues of the Hellenic deities were also painted to be fair-haired, and the Iliad, of course, likewise attributes fair hair to those of divine ancestry such as Achilles, Helen and Menelaus. Blondeness and divinity apparently share an ancient link in the European collective consciousness.

    Rosie, go do something useful like making your husband a sandwich. :)
