I now have a reason to respect Will Smith...

And it certainly isn't for his films! (I'm still shuddering over "I Robot" - the horror!)

Looks like Will Smith got the whacko right hating him. They even have a website (Patriotic Americans Boycotting Anti-American Hollywood), talking shit.


Asked whether the 9/11 attacks had changed him, Smith said, "No. Absolutely not. When you grow up black in America, you have a completely different view of the world than white Americans. We blacks live with a constant feeling of unease. And whether you are wounded in an attack by a racist cop or in a terrorist attack, I'm sorry, it makes no difference." Smith continued, "In the '60s, blacks were continuously the victims of terrorist attacks. It was civil terrorism, but terrorism nonetheless. We are used to being attacked. That constant state of vigilance -- a sort of defensive state -- that hasn't changed at all. For me, nothing has changed at all."
