An Ode To Jada Pinkett Smith And The White Twitter Coalition That’s Pinned Against Her
They’re at it again.

The fixation white people have with Black culture runs deep. From constantly appropriating our culture and ideas to a microaggressive turn of events that tries to diminish us and our worth, it’s an outstanding yet unsurprising feat we’ve endured for centuries. With the recent news of Will Smith’s altercation with Chris Rock at the Oscars, there have been a plethora of tweets made by white people that undermine Jada Pinkett Smith and her long-winded battle with alopecia. Though Jada’s condition has made front pages pretty much everywhere, we can’t help but ask why non-POC are currently making commentary about issues they don’t have much knowledge about. Though social media is known to harbor an infinite community of trolls, we’re currently embarking on a new world where the racist and derogatory antics of online users are becoming more overtly loud and still not being addressed.
