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.

    I can’t figure out what your problem is–complaining what Black women will not allow you to do.

    My Dad never asked his wife or girls if he could do anything. He just did it, and we did what we were told! He was our provider, protector, and disciplinarian.

    @Dw and Perspetive..

    Both of you are wrong. I remember my Mother saying that in the 60s they fought for Black power, only to see Blak men abandom them in droves to chase after White women–huge betrayal. My mother said also that she didn’t have a clue what the White woman’s feminist movement was all about other than them saying they wanted to work outside the home–something Black women HAD to do. She also said that Black men were more interested in the White feminist movement more so than any Black woman she knew or heard of. I believe my Mother. It was Black men who dropped the ball–Whitey tricked you! Now you want to Blame Black women for everything that’s wrong!

    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?
