*Jada Pinkett Smith recently posted an open Facebook letter titled, “Race vs Gender,” in which she admitted to being more “confused and anxious” about a Hillary Clinton candidacy than excited due to “old hurts and scars” stemming from race relations.
The “Gotham” star mentions how black women were previously excluded from the Women’s Suffrage Movement, and how she has been personally affected by the feminist movement.
“I personally suffered the racism and classism of the feminist movement and now have had to watch my daughter battle even ageism as she journeys to participate in the feminist movement,” she added. “But she continues to fight the good fight referring to herself as a feminist while her mother refers to herself as a womanist who supports feminism and feminists.”
