Will Smith’s children felt left out by African Americans



Young people believe they were avoided due to the androgenic style they adopted in adolescence.

Willow Smith, daughter of actors Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, said that she and her brother, Jaden, felt looked sideways by the black community as they grew up and adopted a more androgynous style.

“With the African American community, I felt that Jaden and I were somewhat avoided,” said Willow Smith, 19, during a conversation with his mother at the Red Table Talks.

The young woman believes that other African Americans thought, “We are not going to be proud of them because they are too different. They are very strange.”
