Singer and also Will Smith’s daughter, Willow opened up on how she feels after seeing the Black Community’s behavior toward her.
The Smiths are a very unusual family. Will Smith has turned into one of the best actors in the world on the legendary sitcom Philly’s Fresh Prince, Jada Pinkett Smith runs her own alternative rock band, and his oldest son, Trey, has a rather low profile. Besides all this, Jaden and Willow developed their own creative style. Their effort has shaped them as alternative pop artists.
During a recent interview with ‘Red Table Talk,’ Willow Smith talked about how she felt ostracized by the Black community for not fitting into a certain mold. The 19-year-old singer revealed how she and her brother were ostracized for not conforming to certain mold and described the black community as ‘weird.’
Here’s what she said:
“Specifically with the African American community, I felt like me and Jaden were shunned a little bit. Like, ‘We’re not going to take pride in them because they’re too different, they’re too weird.’… Even some of our family members, I would feel they thought we’re too different. We do have a way within the community that we expect our kids to be raised, like how you behave, how you carry yourself.”
Her mother Jada also added and agreed with her daughter:
“But there are different ways that can be successful.”
