I like gratuitous nudity as much as the next fella…but that’s not what this is all about Jada Pinkett Smith recently collaborated with Selma Hayek to bring attention to the growing problem of human trafficking. Jada’s band, Wicked Evolution, recorded the song ‘Nada Se Compara’, and produced a video directed by Selma Hayek. It just so happens that one of my favorite pieces of eye candy (Jada) just so happens to be naked as a JayBird!
The issue of human trafficking may have gone under your radar to this point, but there are few places left on the map that haven’t been affected by it. Jada credits her daughter Willow for drawing her attention to the cause. I’ll admit that, until recently, I was under the impression that this was a problem that existed primarily in third world countries where people could go missing for months without the word spreading beyond a few villages; or that it it was an issue that illegal immigrants had to deal with due to issues with tracking or reporting to authorities. But that’s not the case. The statistic reported on DontSellBodies.org says that 83% of confirmed trafficking case in the U.S. are American born citizens…and they start as young as 11 years old. The other disturbing fact is the majority of these don’t originate from abductions as one might think…but instead from Love. So then I searched arrest archives in my hometown…and found out that 50+ people had been arrested recently in a human trafficking scheme. Apparently the danger lurks a little closer than we think…be aware.
