Jada Pinkett-Smith has published a series of deep and provocative pieces on her Facebook page, and the latest focuses on men and women in relationships. The actress doles out wisdom and insight as she tackles heavy issues like domestic violence, objectification, materialism and gender inequality. Here’s the post in its entirety:

The war on men through the degradation of woman.

How is man to recognize his full self, his full power through the eye’s of an incomplete woman? The woman who has been stripped of Goddess recognition and diminished to a big ass and full breast for physical comfort only. The woman who has been silenced so she may forget her spiritual essence because her words stir too much thought outside of the pleasure space. The woman who has been diminished to covering all that rots inside of her with weaves and red bottom shoes.

I am sure the men, who restructured our societies from cultures that honored woman, had no idea of the outcome. They had no idea that eventually, even men would render themselves empty and longing for meaning, depth and connection. There is a deep sadness when I witness a man that can’t recognize the emptiness he feels when he objectifies himself as a bank and truly believes he can buy love with things and status. It is painful to witness the betrayal when a woman takes him up on that offer. He doesn’t recognize that the create of a half woman has contributed to his repressed anger and frustration of feeling he is not enough. He then may love no woman or keep many half women as his prize. He doesn’t recognize that it’s his submersion in the imbalanced warrior culture, where violence is the means of getting respect and power, as the reason he can break the face of the woman who bore him four children.

When woman is lost, so is man. The truth is, woman is the window to a man’s heart and a man’s heart is the gateway to his soul.

Power and control will NEVER out weigh love.

May we all find our way.

    Black men dropped the ball centuries ago…when they didnt kick the first arabs ass that showed up in Africa….now those arabs are rich and fat off of stolen African land and resources.

    Black men dropped the ball centuries ago….when they didnt kick the white mans ass when he showed up in Africa…and now the white man is unbelievably rich and arrogant from stolen African lands and resources. The state of Blacks, the world over, is the result of that non action?

    Everything else you speak is BS, if you dont bring up those points. You are right…juices and berries wont do to change those circumstances……and neither will blaming Black women for what you and other Black men wont, too scared. too lazy, or too selfish to do…for centuries now. You all cannot HIDE, behind Black women…… EVERYONE knows whats up!

    To answer your other question….Black women are not valued because of alot of reasons and you know them all, Im sure…..But one is because Black men are conquered subjugated men……… That means all Black men, women and children are conquered and subjugated also. I have always wondered why you are here. I might be wrong but I think you realize something and it reminds me of something I read by James Baldwin; Baldwin went all over the world…from Giovannis’ Room to the mountaintop and he saw something in the south that I think you see also. He saw that it was Black women who were the strength, so to speak, of Black men and really the only group in the Black mans corner.

    You see this also and it kills you SARGE WILLIE PETE, because you are a Black woman hater(maybe all women in fact- in spite of your threats to jump the fence- lol)…..But what kills you even more is it seems like a lot more Black women are questioning and outright abandoning this unspoken obligation/expectation—never ending support of the Black man—- especially because they seem to always get the short end of the stick….single parenthood, rap/hiphop culture, hate,disrespect. etc, etc. You(some Black men) see you cannot do it alone(attain power and compete against others) and no other group of women give a sh*** about you all…..But these Black women wont get on board blindly anymore….What you gonna do, Sarge?

    P.S. A lot of Black women are tired; SICK and TIRED….of you all…*THE BLACK MAN* and also all the other groups out there. TIRED OF YOU ALL!

    WTF is going on in here? All the “men” trolls have gathered with their sheets on their head burning black women in effigy and whining about feminism. It’s so funny to hear certain types of black men cry and cry about the evils of feminism when the black community is ass backwards in terms of it and disgustingly misogynistic to the point of self destruction.

    If black women were truly influenced by the so called evil of feminism the vast majority of you whiners would be huddled together in a street corner in fetal position instead of coddled from birth mother to girlfriend mother.

    Again, I ask, do any of you “men” frequent non black women sites spewing disdain?
