Watch Ellen Pompeo Discuss Race on Red Table Talk With Jada Pinkett Smith
Ellen Pompeo has never been shy about discussing race and has recently made a visit to Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook show, to discuss her opinions further.
As one of the highest paid television drama actresses, the Grey’s Anatomy star has an incredible platform to shine a light on the racial issues of today and does not hesitate to do just that.
Ellen sat down with Jada Pinkett Smith, Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield Norris to discuss everything from what she feels her responsibility is as a white woman in America to her interracial relationship with her husband, Chris Ivery. Pompeo went on to say, “A lot of people get nervous when you bring it up, and I understand why they do. But I’m not afraid… If you’re afraid to talk about it, that’s a problem right there, and you need to talk about it more.”
Ellen continues to be an amazing and empowering role model!
I was humbled when @jadapsmith asked me to come to have a discussion about race. I by no means walk in anyone else’s shoes only my own. I was open &honest about my experience &come from a place of love w no fear about having difficult discussions. Thank you to the whole family ❤️ https://t.co/pcALu87U9C
