Roommate, on the latest episode of the popular Facebook watch show Red Table Talk, says Willow Smith that her mother, Jada Pinkett Smith, was tougher on her than her brother, Jaden Smith. While Willow talked about their childhood, the conversation turned into a discussion of why black mothers tend to go easy on their sons.
In an exclusive clip of the latest episode of Red Table Talk, Willow Smith shared her upbringing while her mother, Jada Pinkett Smith and grandmother, Adrienne Banfield Norris listened. "There's a difference between how black mothers treat black daughters and their sons," Willow said.
She went on to explain, “Something as simple as getting up at the right time. It was like, “You better get up. You'd better get dressed. "I would be in my room and say," OK, I have to … ". But then Jaden is there and she would say," Uh, so you're ready for … "and he I would say," Uh , maybe a moment. "
When Willow remembered always being "ready at the door" to go to school, she mimicked Jaden's much slower pace, stating that he would "put his shoes on" without the same sense of urgency she did would have. Laughing, Jada admitted Willow's memory and said, "That's true. She might have a point."
This is just the surface of a much larger conversation that seems to be very common in the black community. "Red Table Talk" will air on Facebook Watch Tuesdays at 12 p.m. ET.
