I have been bullied on the basis of my colour, Will Smith
In a recent interview, Will Smith spoke about how he had to face and experience racism several times.
He reported being bullied a couple of times on the basis of his dark complexion.
“I’ve been called N-word to my face probably five or six times,” the actor said in a podcast.
“And fortunately for my psyche, I’ve never been called N-word by a smart person,” Smith added. ” … I had never looked into the eyes of a racist and saw anything that I perceived as intellect.”
The I Am Legend actor additionally discussed how he came to know of systemic racism as he made his way into his Hollywood journey.
“But at the core of it, I noticed a difference between ignorance and evil,” Will Smith further added. “Now they’re twins, for sure, but ignorance can be educated and evil is a much more difficult problem. And fortunately, ignorance is more prevalent than blatant evil. So I’ve always been encouraged that the process of education and understanding could alleviate some of the more dangerous and difficult aspects of racism that have unfortunately been embedded in the very fibers of our country.”
