Ellen Pompeo Challenges Media Following ‘Red Table Talk’ About Race

Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo visited Jada Pinkett Smith’s groundbreaking Facebook series, Red Table Talk, for an honest conversation about raising bi-racial children. Toward the end of that extremely important talk, Pompeo was asked fishbowl questions, one of which was about her current relationship with former series star Patrick Dempsey. True to form, that one soundbite was picked up by the media, including The Today show, and Pompeo rightfully objected.

While I understand the Mer/Der obsession taking center stage for true fans of the show, I challenge our 2018 media to focus more on the many women at the table than the one man who is not. Watch the conversation in totality below.
