Will Smith has decided to get Woker…
Hollywood actor Will Smith has officially thrown his support behind the Black Lives Matter movement, with the actor recently calling the group perfection in regards to the “marketing of our ideas,” and even proposing that critical race theory be renamed to “truth theory.”
“This is a difficult area to discuss, but I feel like the simplicity of Black Lives Matter was perfect,” said the Bad Boys for Life star in a recent interview with GQ. “Anybody who tries to debate Black Lives Matter looks ridiculous. So when I talk about the marketing of our ideas, Black Lives Matter was perfection. From a standpoint of getting it done, Black Lives Matter gets it done.”
Smith then segued into “Defund The Police” territory by claiming that the slogan and associated movement does not have the same impact that the Black Lives Matter movement has because “‘Defund The Police’ doesn’t get it done, no matter how good the ideas are.”
“I’m not saying we shouldn’t defund the police,” the actor added. “I’m saying, just don’t say that, because then people who would help you won’t.”
On that particular topic, Smith was also eager to offer his opinion on the movement calling to either defund or abolish the police.
Eager to offer his opinion on this particular topic, Smith continued, “So ‘Abolish the police. Defund the police.’ I would love if we would just say ‘Defund the bad police.’”
“It’s almost like I want, as Black Americans, for us to change our marketing for the new position we’re in,” the Suicide Squad actor further elaborated.
