Play video content Pod Save America Will Smith says his encounters with blatant racism all involved pure stupidity — as in, really stupid people, but he also has a theory about smart racists. The actor dished on the ‘Pod Save America’ podcast, in which he discussed his experience with racism both before and during his time in Hollywood … all with the backdrop of a new Netflix series he produced about the 14th Amendment, ‘Amend: The Fight for America.’ Will was asked about how his own personal run-ins with prejudice helped steer the project, and he didn’t hold back … saying he’d been called the n-word to his face at least 5 times before.
