Yeah…Umm…About That Time Rashida Jones Had To Tell A Reporter She’s Black


Rashida Jones, star of NBC’s Parks and Recreation and heir to music royalty Quincy Jones, walked the red carpet at the SAG Awards Sunday night (Jan. 25) and had the misfortune of encountering two…what’s the right wording…”out of touch” reporters.

Wearing a floor-length Emmanuel Ungaro gown with nude face and red lip, Jones approached the podium where TNT presenter Danielle Demski told Jones “You look like you’ve just come off an island or something. You look very tan. Very tropical.”

Not missing a beat and with the utmost class, Jones 38, reminded Demski of her ethnicity.

“I mean, you know, I’m ethnic,” said Jones who is half black and Jewish.
