charlizeThe always outspoken Jada Pinkett Smith (pictured below) has really raised a few eyebrows in the Black community with her latest rant. The actress went on her Facebook page and argued that if the Black community wanted to see more diversity on mainstream publications, perhaps Black magazines should allow White women to grace their covers too.

Pinkett Smith shared her controversial thoughts on her social media page and even took things a step Jada Pinkett Smith Magazine coverfurther by displaying a few mockups of magazine covers to drive the point home of how social injustices such as not placing a White woman on a Black publication cover for example could be rectified.

For example, she placed a picture of actress Charlize Theron on the cover of the Black woman’s fashion and lifestyle magazine ESSENCE.  Then the petite diva added a photo of actress and singer Queen Latifah to a Cosmopolitan cover.

The wife of superstar, Will Smith, who only recently went on a public tirade on her Facebook page about the bullying of young celebrities, had a few interesting thoughts about her latest undertaking, posing the question, “Will there ever be a day in which women will be able to see each other beyond race, class, and culture?”

As she fleshed out her response, Pinkett Smith then seemed to go in on Black women inquiring why we ask to be featured on White publications when we don’t return the favor:

“There is a question I want to ask today. I’m asking this question in the spirit of thinking outside of the box in order to open doors t…o new possibilities. These possibilities may be realistic or unrealistic. I also want to make it clear that there is no finger-pointing here. I pose this question with the hope that it opens a discussion about how we can build a community for women based upon us all taking a deeper interest in one another. An interest where skin color, culture, and social class does not create barriers in sharing the commonality of being… women.

With love and respect to all parties involved, my question is this…if we ask our white sisters, who tend to be the guardians of the covers of mainstream magazines, to consider women of color to grace these covers, should we not offer the same consideration to white women to grace our covers?

Should women extend their power to other women simply because they are women? To my women of color, I am clear we must have something of our own, but is it possible to share in the spirit in which we ask our white sisters to share with us? I don’t know the answer and would love to hear your thoughts.”
