Jada Pinkett Smith has revealed that she’s had difficulty dating white men because chats about race always led to the end of the relationship.

On the latest episode of “The Red Table Talk,” the host was joined by her mother Adrienne Banfield-Jones, daughter Willow and special guest, “Grey’s Anatomy” star Ellen Pompeo for a conversation about interracial dating. Pompeo, who is white, is married to Black music producer Chris Ivery and they have three children together.

“I have dated some really wonderful white men but it was interesting in that you’re dating someone who has no idea what oppression is,” Jada said.

She continued: “He’s at the top of the food chain, he doesn’t understand. It’s a very hard thing for him to be able to relate to. It was always the factor in the relationship that made it break.”

Pinkett-Smith previously tackled race and relationships on her Facebook Watch series when she revealed her own bias when it comes to blonde white women.

“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.

Willow chimed in, “Because of their sex.”

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

She then admitted: “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. “I’ve had to catch myself.”

“Do you have a specific incident with someone who had blonde hair?” her mother 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.”

    The comments of black people getting married to white people and black people giving their wealth back to the white people who oppressed them is SO RACIST!!!! OMG Let people of any COLOR or RACE love who they want. Marry whom they chose! Stop being racist!

  2. So true, Passing Through…..that is exactly what those who marry white are doing – taking the wealth of Blacks and giving it right back to them. So what they don’t steal, the rest is given right back to them. (Sigh) Yea, love is love, marry who you want to but be wise about your assets.

    But yet your son Jaden was running around Hollywood sniffing white girls, the Kardashian ho’s. I’ve NEVER seen him with a black girl on his arm. How can you take a stand as a black woman against interracial dating because you understands the racial indifference but not teach not teach your black male son the same? How will you feel when he marries some white woman or man and give your hard earned wealth right back to the white man. That’s the only things these rich black slaves are doing marrying some white or ethnic white person, breeding their black genes family linage out of existence and passing black wealth right back to their slave owning oppressors.
