Last week, Jada Pinkett Smith used her Facebook page to take on Americans’ treatment of young celebrities. On Monday, taking pains to make it clear that she’s “thinking outside the box” and that “these possibilities may be realistic or unrealistic,” the actress wonders this: If black women expect white women to include us in the spaces that they control (mainstream magazine covers, for example), at what point must we do the same for them?
Here’s how she put it:
“I also want to make it clear that there is no finger pointing here. I pose this question with the hope that it opens a discussion about how we can build a community for women based upon us all taking a deeper interest in one another. An interest where skin color, culture, and social class does not create barriers in sharing the commonality of being … women.”
