Will Smith appeared on “The Tonight Show” and host Jimmy Fallon asked him for his thoughts on the Republican and Democratic National Conventions and on race relations. Here’s what the the award winning actor had to say:
“It’s interesting, I’ve been thinking about it and there’s really two extreme views of America right now,” Smith told Fallon when asked if he’d watched the political conventions over the past two weeks.
Smith volunteered that he’s done “a lot of marriage counseling, so I know how to solve problems when people ain’t getting along.”
“Hearing people say the race relations are worse than they’ve ever been, it doesn’t feel like that, to me,” he added. “Racism isn’t getting worse, it’s getting filmed.”
The “Suicide Squad” star went on to say that, much like marriage counseling, “once everything gets out on the table, the truth, once everybody’s said everything they’ve been harboring, there’s a really dark time.”
“When you’re just looking at your partner like, ‘Oh my god, that’s what you think?’”
“But there’s a dark before the dawn,” the Smith added. “When everything gets out, it’s a good thing. It just sucks bad when the truth is out. But I think everybody can see it now. And I think it’s just a little darkness before the cleansing that we’ll have as we move forward.”
