The Hate on Jaden Smith

As I’m viewing online the release of Jaden Smith’s video ‘ICON’ I am sadden when I click on the comments to read feedback. The level of hate from other blacks downing a black man is asinine. ¬†There is nothing positive that can come out of your life by tearing down someone else’s grind. Now I must say, the clothing and grills Jaden has on in the video is not my style; but that is not a reason for me to downplay and go beyond criticizing to the point where it’s hatefulness to the young brother.

I honestly believe the reason people express hate in such strong opinions to others is because they are unhappy in their life. I am big on supporting one another and elevating the next person if all possible. Regardless of Jaden’s background, parents, or net worth, there is nothing good that can come out of your life by hating on another. Speak love and speak life or don’t speak at all.
