Damn he’s ugly.

hesh123 September 7, 2015 at 1:11 pm

Stupid too!

Racial Realist October 4, 2015 at 11:20 pm

He’s a cute kid, your head just isn’t screwed on right.

xoxo October 29, 2015 at 6:17 am

He’s an ugly, arrogant little shit who thinks everything should be handed to him just because his parents are famous. Nepotism…..

He can’t even act worth a damn and his girlfriend (Sarah Snyder) is basic as fuck. She is also a criminal: http://mugshots.com/US-Counties/North-Carolina/Mecklenburg-County-NC/Sarah-Irene-Snyder.69296217.html

Why do him and his sister look a little Asian, but yet Will and Jada don’t look Asian at all??

Blerman August 10, 2015 at 11:36 am

how the fuck do he look Asian

xoxo August 27, 2015 at 3:01 am

You’re either blind or an idiot (probably both).

xoxo August 27, 2015 at 3:02 am

He looks Blasian.

Racial Realist October 4, 2015 at 11:21 pm

They don’t look Asian, they look young, it’s just youth/neotony.

xoxo October 29, 2015 at 6:14 am

Um what the fuck. I never said they looked straight up Asian, I said they look MIXED WITH ASIAN. Them Smith kids looked mixed to me.

Often African-Americans can have small traces of other races and not be aware of it… that may have small influences on looks. But he doesn’t even look 1/4th Asian. If you’ve seen pictures of actual half African, half Asian people… it really doesn’t look like him. The hair tends to be more straight, usually curly though, and lighter skinned with a smaller nose.

He looks like a little creep.

indo December 19, 2013 at 6:09 pm

jaden is arrogant as fuck.

WTF June 3, 2014 at 2:49 pm

well what do you expect? his father is will smith. that means he never has to work his ass off. everything is handed to him and he doesn’t have to anything

WTF June 3, 2014 at 2:52 pm

he’ll never know the meaning of working for things. he’s just like those kardashian bitches. they’re famous and rich because of their father. if kim and her whorish sisters were not famous, they would be working at mcdonald’s or any other shitty minimum wage job. no doubt they would have dropped out of high school. they can’t act, sing, or dance. they’re famous for being famous. actually kim is famous for her sex tape with ray j. her sisters are just riding off her coattails. i guess money can’t buy class or intelligence.

Jaden Smith + Kylie Jenner =

Pop out some white babies

lauren January 23, 2012 at 4:35 pm

How can thIs sure say that his mother is like 3 other races than black then put that he black?

JoFacto December 19, 2013 at 12:01 am

It’s so funny how some people are against some celebs being black!

andrew December 19, 2013 at 6:27 am

it’s not being “against”. For example I dont consider this guy “black”, he would be exotic in West Africa, so easy to see

JoeMcGood February 17, 2014 at 10:05 pm

Exotic? Have you been to Africa? And FYI, not all African-Americans slaves were got from West Africa. There were many other slave trade routes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:African_slave_trade.png

JoeMcGood February 17, 2014 at 10:03 pm

The Question is “What does he say?”

Delnegro August 4, 2011 at 3:13 am

I Went To The Theater And The Karate Kid Was Sold Out! I Was So Upset. But That Prove’s It Is A Good Move If It Was Sold Out The Whole Day! Since I Couldn’t Watch It, I Just Went And Watch Toy Story 3 In 3D. And Let Me Tell You This, That Movie Was AMAZING! I LOVE IT! You Should Go See It Ethnic! It Brang Back So Much Memories!

But Ethnic, If You Are Gonna Watch Toy Story 3, First Watch Toy Story 1 And Toy Story 2, Then Watch Toy Story 3!

ethnic June 19, 2010 at 7:34 pm
