As protests to bring awareness to police brutality against African Americans continue around the USA and many people call for reforms to the criminal justice system for unfairly targeting people of color, race has been a major topic in the national media for years. Despite those reports, actor/rapper Will Smith told The Hollywood Reporter racism is not a major problem.

Smith said:

“Everybody is prejudiced. Everybody has their life experiences that make them prefer one thing over another — it makes them prefer blond hair over a brunette; if you see somebody with dark skin walking down the street, you have a different reaction than you have [with] someone who is 5-foot-1 and white. But there is a connotation with racism of superiority: You feel that your race generally is superior. And I have to say, I live with constant prejudice, but racism is actually rare — someone who thinks their race is superior.”
