Jane Fonda Calls On White People To Acknowledge Their Privilege & To Advocate For Change

Jane Fonda is speaking out against white privilege in an new interview with CNN.

The 82-year-old activist called on white people to educate themselves and join the fight in support of Black Lives Matter.

“Because we’re white, we have had privilege, even the poorest of us have had privilege,” Jane shared while speaking to Don Lemon. “We need to recognize that, and we have to understand what it is that keeps racism in place — the policies, redlining, banking policies, mortgage policies. All of the things that are really making it very, very difficult for black people to lift themselves up.”

Jane went on, explaining that white people should recognize their own privilege and use it to advocate for change.

“The policies have to be changed, and then white people have to understand the history that has led to this and we have to try to change within ourselves,” she shared.

Jane has been vocal in a lot of issues, including climate change. She hosted a string of Fire Drill Friday gatherings around the country up until the stay at home orders for coronavirus.

Jane Fonda Opens Up About Spending the Night in Jail After Her Fourth Arrest Amid 'Fire Drill Fridays' Protests

During the conversation, Jane talked about how her “Fire Drill Fridays” were born.

“When you’re famous, you have this incredible potential platform, but how do you use it?” she said, “I have to put myself on the line.”

She explained that she called Greenpeace USA’s Annie Leonard, and said she was going to camp out in front of the White House.

“She said, ‘Well, that’s great that you’re willing to do that, but it’s illegal.’”

For 14 weeks beginning in October, Jane and a group of people, including Lily Tomlin and Ted Danson, staged weekly protests in front of the Capitol to pressure leaders to address climate change.

When discussing her time in jail after her fourth arrest, she said: “I’m white and I’m famous and I think orders came down from the attorney general to handle me with kid gloves.”

“It’s very hard in life to find a way to align your body with your deepest values, and that’s what civil disobedience can do. Even though you’re being handcuffed and put in a situation where you have absolutely no control, it’s like stepping into yourself. I have chosen to put myself in this position where I lose all power because of something I believe in. And it’s incredible,” she went on to say.

If you missed it, here’s who she’s endorsing for President.

Jane Fonda Reveals Whether She's Getting More Plastic Surgery

Jane Fonda is saying no to any more plastic surgery.

In her cover story with Elle Canada, the 82-year-old actress opened up about the work she’s actually had done and her decision not to have anything else done.

“I can’t pretend that I’m not vain, but there isn’t going to be any more plastic surgery — I’m not going to cut myself up anymore,” Jane shared with the magazine. “I have to work every day to be self-accepting; it doesn’t come easy to me.”

She added that “I try to make it very clear that it has been a long and continuing struggle for me.”

“I post pictures of me looking haggard — and once with my tooth out! This is a fake tooth [taps at an incisor]. It came out in a restaurant in Portugal, and I posted it.”

Jane‘s previously opened up in the past about not being proud of the work she’s had done.

Jane Fonda Recycles Elie Saab Dress She Wore To Cannes 2014 For Oscars 2020

You might not have realized this but Jane Fonda recycled a dress for the 2020 Academy Awards last night.

The 82-year-old actress and activist stunned in an Elie Saab gown at the event where she presented the Oscar for Best Picture and she actually wore the same dress to the Cannes Film Festival in 2014.

Late last year, Jane revealed that she would give up shopping and refuse to buy any new clothes as a small part of the fight against climate change.

While protesting on Capitol Hill, she told the crowd, “So when I talk to people about, ‘We don’t really need to keep shopping. We shouldn’t look to shopping for our identity. We don’t need more stuff,’ then I have to walk the walk too. So I’m not buying any more clothes.”

Jane has only made one clothing purchase since then, her famous red coat that she had in hand on the Oscar stage.

She’s worn the red coat many times to her Fire Drill Friday climate protests.

See 10+ pictures of Jane Fonda wearing the dress in 2014 and in 2020 below!
