Nobody has a problem with the idea that "black lives matter." However, people take serious issue with the behavior of many of BLM's members.

Hey Will I love you to death but I'm going to say something I've been through all this crap in the 70s 80s 60s I thought it was settled.
Poor is poor no matter what white black whatever.
The idea of BLM is wrong.
It's segregation at its best.
Do you not realize antifa is behind this do you not realize Bernie Sanders people swore that they were going to go after the police and take them down.
I grew up poor but my parents made me work.
I was working at nine years old.
There was no money for your grades or getting an allowance or doing housework it's called pick up the pop bottles.
I never saw color when I grew up not that it wasn't there as I got older and saw it .I had black friends that used to come to my house we used to go to each other's house.
Everybody's spouting off about about Farrakhan. Oh give me a break!
Farrakhan was an a****** I remember those days.
I also having fond memories of Dr Martin Luther King Junior.
This is not the dream he had for the ALL colors and races of all faiths and creeds.
It's like they're all spitting on what he stood for.
You have money you have connections you worked for it.
Why don't you get your family and friends that want to help out please these inner cities where most of the black on black crime is because is caused by black gangs how about those people put your money there in those inner cities. A good investment for their futures.
My family crayon box has many colors in it
My family is so mixed up they don't know which way they're going.
No one asked to be born in the skin they're in God made us that way.
Just as black people should not dishonor themselves for apologizing for what shade of black or brown they are I will not apologize for being white.
Why does it have to be about color color color color?
They want us to be the demon crats wanted this Obama invested in this virus follow back your history.
The demon crats where the slave owners I never owed a slave did you ? You got more money than God!
Use it for positive things prayer back in school ,support your local police, help the needy ,help your neighbor, help a friend .What good does it do for these people under the assumption of BLM they're Hood rats ,regular demonstrators ,thieves how do you separate that and there's somebody in there lighting the fire on their butts.
Like I said this is total Reverse Racism at its best.
This is what China wanted to happen to us. They wanted to separate us with this new virus the Democrats were in on it. So nobody could go out and vote. They're already, already talking about November's election.
I am shocked where are all these big mouth movie stars The can't keep their traps shut and now they're all silent.
I appreciate you I think you are great guy and you have a beautiful family and wife .I think your whole family is totally level headed to some degree
I quit watching Robert De Niro he went completely nuts.
I wouldn't pay a penny to see another one of his movies .What's that going to do for him he's got money. Paid by the people who watched his movies Etc.
People should keep their personal politics to them self you don't mix church and state.
Movie stars that accept ra whether they're black white again we're talking about the crayon box I'm not speaking for the whole race that they come from but they act like they are.
You are A common sense guy.
I Believe In My Second Amendment right and I hope you do too .Cuz they're going to come for you one day too my friend. They're going to want to come to your house cuz you got more than them. Will you work for it.
You've got to wake up these people that are so out of touch.
Get rid of the police ?! You have movie stars ,singers Etc. Running their mouth ,while all along they have their own private personal guards. You get the picture?!
Did you watch that news article about the husband and wife trying to protect their own property against hundreds of people trying to keep what's theirs.Like you, they worked for it and the judge did a reverse racism and they went to jail There's something wrong that! It is totally wrong !
I have another thing to tell you.
All players that play all kinds of sports including the Olympics.
I have so many sports things
that are autographed pictures I'm a Steeler fan I grew up in Pittsburgh area.
If they play that black national anthem before our national anthem that covers everybody.
All the blood that was shed for our freedoms for all people. I'm done with sports and I will burn everything that I paid for. Then going to go to my son's house and get my Neiman and lie to him and all my boxing gloves and pictures and autographs that I collected over the years and gave to him . Then I'm going to videotape everything being burnt They want to watch things burn they can watch it burn.
I'm going to videotape it and I'm going to put it on my Facebook and you know why because if the NFL and all the other sports Embrace this b******* again Raceism segregation at its best.
I will never watch another sporting event.
If tickets don't get sold, players don't get paid ,there will be no teams and there will be no NFL.
That goes for everybody.
Go ask a veteran that shed their blood lost a limb or talk to a family that lost this life.
Communist countries and the demon crats want US separated can you not see this?
You and I both know and you have to admit if any other race White ,red,yellow ,brown wanted their own national anthem that would be considered racist.
There Goes My crayon box proof self admitted.
Again, I will reiterate the national anthem is for all people in this beautiful Republic called the United States of America.
There's a black bunch of guys out there trying to take over Texas did you see that they want the state of Texas all to themselves for only them they're blacks their movement is totallay out of order it is so wrong
You and I both know call blacks are not like this so neither all weitz
They're even trying to take our churches away now come on this is downright communistic.

j ortiz-puyarena
j ortiz-puyarena:
That was awesome!!! I feel like one of the issues, Will, that my generation has is we were brought into a world in need of fixing and we were never taught how to fix ourselves so we walk around trying to fix our parents and grandparents etc.. Conflicts and problems. We arent taught how to find ourselves as children and for those like me who werent raised with family or by their parents its hard. Its tough knowing you have to do something and willing to take on whatever responsibility but dont know what you need to do. The main issue particularly is communication you said it too Will but we aren't taught how to put our emotions on paper to express so others can see our point of view. So when you come out here like this and say all these things and you're saying the right words we're just sitting here like, "Yes I've always thought of that but never knew how to tell people" its a great feeling because it feels like a discovery we can finally breathe knowing that from now on we have a way to express ourselves even if its just 1 thing out of the hundreds we still can't express. Yes Black Lives Matter

Thanks for having this conversation. Angela Rye is really cool, and so are you. Anyone saying Will Smith can't talk on oppression because he's wealthy...well, he's still black. Anti-blackness doesn't care about wealth.

The point of contention is:
Black Lives Matter vs "black lives matter"
Communicating the difference, just like Will said, would improve all of our much-needed conversations on this topic.

I watched the whole vid. I love your work & will continue to follow you even though I have opposing views. That is what true open-mindedness is. I wish that you could see that you could use your platform to change what's wrong in the black community. I wish you would open your eyes to the games that the powerful are playing. I wish that the hatred that arose from the seed planted in the days you walked the streets of Philadelphia and were subjected to slurs did not blind you so. You are one of the greats of our time. You could do so much more than transplant that seed of hatred into today's youth.

Mr Will, you are an exact definition of acting man. I would like to be in touch with you hopefully someday, @gmaill: [email protected] hopefully you will get that time.🙏
Hairyparrot
Hairyparrot:
ok...... I watched the video. I have a few problems.
Mr. Smith, you say don't elect officials who don't have love and God in their lives?
Have you read BLM manifesto, it pretty much debunks your parameters for electing officials.
Have you seen who really controls BLM...... 20 something white entitled youth. Then behind them are antifa/socialist/marxist.
BLM has no face and no one to move the "message/dialogue" forward. Maybe you Mr. Smith.
Lets also be realistic, the police and communities have been at odds at each other for years.
So how do we get past all this?

1. Education Matters - time to put education in the forefront by teaching "real/honest" history, math, science, english.
2. Jobs Matter - look up Mike Rowe. Not everyone is going to get a college diploma, but there are some high paying blue collar jobs.
3. Families Matter - time to get back the nuclear family...... if not mentors.
4. Belief Systems Matter - Christian, Muslim etc..... Humans need to believe in something higher. It gives us a solid base of how to act and treat others.
5. Level Playing Fields Matter - this has always been a problem..... time to address and fix. It's what you know..... Not who you know, what color your skin is, what belief system (political/spiritual) you follow.
6. Americans Matter - we have to look out for "us" first, not the world. we have to fix and address our issues.
7. Civility Matters - do I say more. Politics/News/ the streets/people in general.

I could probably go on, but until we fix "our house" and listen, not scream when having an honest conversation about issues. This "experiment" called America is doomed.
