I don’t think that people generally realise what motion picture industry has done to the American Indian, as a matter of fact, all ethnic groups, all minorities, all non-whites. And people just simply don’t realise, just take it for granted that that’s the way people are going to be presented and these clichés are just, I mean on this network every night, well perhaps not every night, but you can see silly renditions of human behaviour, the leering Filipino houseboy, the wily Japanese, the kook or the gook, black man, stupid Indian. It just goes on and on and on. And people actually don’t realise how deeply people are injured by seeing themselves represented, not so much the adults, who are already inured to that kind of pain and pressure, but children. Indian children seeing Indians represented as savage, as ugly, as nasty, vicious, treacherous, drunken. They grow up only with a negative image of themselves and it lasts a lifetime.

Jada Pinkett-Smith on Arsenio Hall Show (Winter 2014)
Jada speaks on her relationship with Tupac:
Pac was probably one of the first male figures that I had in my life that saw the beauty and the talent and my intelligence, separated from sex. That’s something that a child, a young girl usually gets from her father. I didn’t have that. Pac was the first one… that… it wasn’t about sex. It was about, ‘You? You’re a beautiful woman. You’re talented. You’re strong. I respect you and you are MY girl! You’re gonna sit right here and I’m gonna protect you! I’mma make sure, if nothing else, you get what you need!’ And that’s what our relationship was like. We kind of did that for each other.
That’s [rap], what people knew of Pac, but he was so much more. We went to the Baltimore School for the Arts so we really were able to have access to all kinds of music, all kinds of things. Pac was a lover of Shakespeare. A lot of people don’t know that. Pac loved rock music, too. He loved metal just as much as I did. It was just that his gift was rap. He was a rapper. One of his idols was Rakim.
Well, I liked Metallica!
This woman deserves a round of applause and a throne of gold. This is the most realistic & amazing thing for someone to say for this generation of students. I wasn’t able to go to college this year because my parents can’t afford to send me and I had every scholarship, grant, loan known to man and it still wouldn’t work. Finally someone gets it!
