Jada Pinkett Points Out The Difference Between Past And Present Police Brutality

Jada Pinkett pointed out that earlier there were only articles on police brutality. However, now there are visuals to support the article. She said, “The difference now is that we are watching executions on television, which is mind-blowing. We are watching young men and young women gunned down on live TV. And people are in the streets recording it. We’ve heard about it before and it would get written up, but now you have the visuals that make it real. We get to see it and that’s the difference. You can look at it and see for yourself what’s happening.”

Jada Pinkett Highlights Police Brutality In Her Short Film

Jada Pinkett is coming up with a movie called Cops and Robbers where she highlights the same issue. She said, “As an African American woman, it was one of those pieces that I could feel powerful messaging with such compassion from the perspective of the African American community. It was this explanation with this bleeding heart of what we are experiencing during this particular time. For me, it was this emotional connection that pierced my heart and soul.”

Black Director For Jada’s Short Film

An African-American has written and directed Jada’s short film. Moreover, she said, “It was also written by a very talented African American male. And then, I realized how many minorities had contributed their talent as animators to the project. It’s important that I flow resources in any way that I can to voices and the talent I feel that don’t always have equal opportunity.”
