Jada Pinkett-Smith says her niece was given a date r@pe drug

Screen Shot 2014-07-23 at 1.32.53 PMS*xual assault is a serious problem in our country and one of the reasons the problem persists is because people don’t speak up about it.  Jada Pinkett Smith is doing a great service to women everywhere by talking about the issue, particularly in relation to the #JusticeforJada movement that has occurred around the country.

The movement started when Jada Smith, a 16-year old girl  chose to speak publicly about being assaulted and the ridiculed on social media.  Jada Pinkett Smith, who shares the same first and last name as the little girl who was attacked, made some comments about the issue on her Facebook page.

Speaking with US Magazine, the older Jada spoke about why the issue affected her so much.

“If you saw what I put on Facebook, you also saw that this could happen to any woman that we know, and the unfortunate part is that my niece was given a date-rape drug that weekend,” she tells Us. “Thank God—she’s 20—so thank God that nothing happened because she was with some responsible guys that took care of her, and with three of her friends … ”

Pinkett-Smith says that she had to speak with her daughter about the incident shortly after it occurred.

“I’m not a conventional parent, which I take a lot of pride in,” she said. “The first thing I had my niece do was sit down with my daughter and a couple of her friends and tell her about that experience. I don’t just sit with Willow and go, ‘Hey, this is what Mommy thinks.’ …

“What I do with Willow is I give her the opportunity to be empowered by having herself first.  Because when you allow a person to be an individual and you allow a person to have power within and have confidence on who they are, you’ll never have to look into the eyes of a man and question whether it’s a yes or a no. She’s gonna be very clear: No. She’s gonna be very clear: Yes. And she’s gonna be in a position to be able to determine how to protect herself. Know when you’re in danger. … ”

Date rape is a consistent concern for women, and occurs on many college campuses in particular.  Some of the ways to combat the problem are to teach men to avoid assaulting women and to teach women to avoid men who might harm them.  This could include making sure that you never leave your drink when you go out and avoiding becoming intoxicated when you’re not in a safe environment.

Here is a list of 26 ways to avoid being a victim of sexual assault.

    These fast lil girls are way out of line, twerking, tight clothing, low cut shirts, and accessories promoting sex. When u put urself in an environment like that, drugs, and alcohol u set urself up!

      Yeah. It is the fast tail girls who are causing all of these rapes, huh. The boys just can’t help themselves. They have no responsibility for their violent behavior, nor any choice about how they behave. Yeah, you right. I guess all of the boys with sagging pants and their butt-cracks showing should be raped too. That is according to your logic, or should I say, illogic?

      I do believe that girls should take precautions to prevent rape. Being careful who you go out with. Not drinking until you pass out and the like. But, let me be clear. It is the fault of the predator, not those prayed upon when this happens.

      Oh, I liked your post. Then they go out and lie about their age and they get alot of naive young men into trouble. I would like Jada to look into what happens when some of these young ladies tear up a young mans life….

        @PEE PEE DIXION…

        Do unto others as you would have them do unto you: Keep Yo Fkn Dyck In Yo Filthy A$$ Pocket (you premature gold-diggin pu$$y thief)… Do you and Butch have any sisters, daughters mamas or wives!!! Because whatever your sorry a$$ sew over somebody elses head just remember yall got female family members too…wink!!!

        Both of you guys sound like “FKN-LOCKER-ROOM-PERVERTS”, for sure not strong blackmen of integrity.

        ITS NOT SAFE FOR OUR CHILDREN / YOUNG BLACK FEMALE DAUGHTERS NIECES, SISTERS ETC TO BE IN THE COMPANY OF ANY BLACKMEN…

      @Butch…

      Here we go again… You said: Eve was pimped in the garden…lmbo!

      This is a very very sad situation. No women is at fault when she is sexu@lly assaulted by any male. Butch” since you are making excuses for these blackmen to abuse black females, I guess all blackwomen need to rebuild their agendas concerning their black daughters:

      Teacher our daughters to only party with “THE RAINBOW”, stay away from all african american black males and call the white police when you see them anywhere in the area…wink!!! Sounds like a plan to me.!

    It is NEVER a woman’s fault or a girl’s fault when she is raped!! The guilty person or persons is/are the one/ones who engage(s) in sex with someone who is underage, too drunk or stoned to give consent or who is intimidated/threatened into submission.

    In response to “stay away from all black men”. unfortunately this is not just a problem with black young men there are rape situations in every race, we don’t hear about the other races because they only highlight blacks, Hispanics in the news and hide the criminal acts of other races. there are thugs in every race. kidnappers, drug abusers, incest, kids shooting up schools, etc. We need to pray for all of our young people no matter what race they are because we and they all fall short trust me.

      @Maureen…

      Right now in this time and season I beg to differ… You have 2 nuts in this blog room, #(1 stating its okay to spike a womens drink then rape her because of her dress attire) and the other fool who is agreeing with what he is saying. Now telling how many more blackmen really feel like these 2 men. This is open season on all blackwomen by more then 75% black male throwing us all to the curb, so speak for yourself.
      Do blackwomen spike the drinks & rape blackmen because they dress sexy or smell appealing to us….plezzz!!! I do understand Devon about the 2 drink minimum, but that still doesn’t give a blackman a right to rape a blackwomen… and I also know it crosses color-lines too. Its the statements in here that were made is what speaks a thousand words of “WARNING TO ALL BLACKWOMEN / WOMEN PERIOD”.
      We should be able to have a girls night out and be safe in doing so, but this is nolonger the world we live in, and young boys / men are being raped too. But this article is about blackwomen…Redbone

      PEOPLE RUN THEIR MOUTHS WITHOUT A FOCUS CONCERNING WHAT THEY ARE REALLY SAYING, AND THAT’S HOW REAL WARS BEGIN.

    It’s not a black or white thing. This could happen to any woman of any color. And I don’t care if she has on no clothes, ITS NOT HER FAULT!! Only a ignorant JACKASS would think that!!! Come on Butch, I would like to think your smarter than to believe that.!

    Young and ole azz Women gotta look out after themselves. I didnt do house parties and clubs. My pops and older brother schooled me on that they said in every crowd of dudes is the ones checkin out the chicks throwin back shots and gettin loose and dancin up on dudes and thats the one they targetin. Even girls night out i had stoopid hangout potnas that would get pissy pissy drunk and then expect us sober chicks that knew how to have a drink or two then no more to look out for them. Then when they would try to leave with a dude and yeah even DUDES and we would step up and say come on lets go home we got that you aint my mama and you just jealou becuz yall aint pullin dudes sheit. Well said fukk it and went home. Thats one of the reasons i stopped hanging out with ratchet wreckless chicks they dont listen when you try to help but when they get a train run on they azz that night and they feelin guilty about it the next day THEN they say if you was a REAL friend you wouldnt have let me go. Bump that sheit we tried to make you leave with us you talked mad sheit about you grown so we let you be grown SHRUG. I’m married now so girls night is rare and when it happens its with my REAL friends who got some dayum sense. Got no more tolerance for stoopid women.

    When a girl drink is spiked, the predator leaves her vulnerable. They are taken vantage of someone who is not aware of what’s going on. This is pure evil.

    R@p€ is not about s£x as much as it is about violence and power. Any man who r@pes a woman is a violent man who can possibly k!ll. So it is definitely not about s£x. Any person who blames anyone who is violated needs to pray it never happens to someone close to home. Fast tail or not.

    this is sad i have a close friend who always want to turn up like 4 days a week, i tell her we grown with kids my daughter is 20 i don’t need to turn up.. I also say to her we both have our own houses we can get together at one of our house and turn up and be a hell of a lot safer and can get super drunk and then go get into somebodies spare bedroom and sleep like a baby..

    It sad that these two guys on this thread have the mentality of a predator. Somebody lied to you while you were coming up in the world. You do not have two brains as you were probably told one on your shoulder the other on your third leg. It is the head that’s on your shoulder that does the thinking, the third leg doesn’t. You sit there and to tell yourself it has a mind of it’s own separate from your shoulder thoughts, but you know that is not true. You have to psychologically tell your penis to get hard. STOP THE DUMB SHYT!!! It doesn’t have emotions of it’s own. The heavy emotions you feel are your being, yourself, not the third leg. Haven’t you heard that you don’t put your hands on no one. That is your first thought no matter where you go. If you get inebriated and aggressive sexual thoughts arrive in your mind. You are a bad person and most likely you can’t hold your liquor. Females can wear anything they like. If your not man enough to hold a civil conversation, or maybe joke around a little, your not old enough to be in that woman’s face. SO GET YOUR IMMATURE LITTLE BEHIND OUT OF HER FACE, UNTIL YOU GROW UP!!! It saddens me that you really got on here and put woman down like that and the other guy agreed. You have just shared with cyberspace that you are not a man. Don’t get it twisted, you are not a man and you are more of them things they put in cages, until they learn to behave themselves.〄〄〄~~**Foots**~~

      Thank You BLKfootblaque…

      I feel so much better, and that’s no disrespect to you and other good blackmen like you. It hurts me emotionally when blackmen come on these blog forums and post negative comments, that is what keeps redbone all rialed up to “FIGHT BACK”, its happening to much. I know all blackmen are not like them, but that kind of behavior make it hard for me and my sisters to trust blackmen because we nolonger know (who is who) anymore and its real scarry and dangerous out there. Most blackwomen are alone now, we gotta defend our ownselves to the death, nobody else will, but we do have God at his best, and many blackmen have the nerve to even come against us for being true believers of the faith, its a very very very sad day.

      We don’t trust or feel safe with blackmen anymore, when we do its like taking a chance of being destroyed.

    @Jada and willow…

    I was driving down the street remembering my days in college. Willow you can’t trust nobody but your mother / immediately family when it comes to issues like this. Some so-called girlfriends will set you up too… everybody who says your their friend is not your friend. Mom can finish the rest. Back in our day it was called “A MICKI” instead of “SPIKED”…

    Be careful because it can happen anywhere, even at an all girls party where someone slips something in the punch-bowl, everybody pass out and the villian slip the back door open. People are evil and some teenagers are abnoxious selfish selfcenterd and rude…wink!!!
