Tiffany Haddish is getting real about the explanations she’s nervous to become a mom while on a show with Carmelo Anthony’s What’s in Your Glass on Monday.
According to her, she is scared to have a baby due to the rate of racism that is been faced by black folks outside.
“I’m a touch older now and other people are always asking when I’m gonna have some babies,” the 40-year-old comedian began.
“There’s a neighborhood of me that might wish to do this, and that I always structure these excuses like, ‘Oh, I want 1,000,000 dollars within the bank before I do this, I want this, I want that.’ But really, it’s like, I might hate to offer birth to someone that appears like me … knowing that they’re gonna be hunted or killed,” she said with tears in her eyes. “Like, why would I put someone through that?”
“And White race doesn’t need to believe that,” Haddish noted. “It’s time to speak that, and the way we’ve to return together as a community and work as a unit — and perhaps we don’t all agree on equivalent things, but we’d like to only find some footing and move forward as a citizenry .”
Anthony said he thinks the Black community is all trying to convey an equivalent message.
“We’re all trying to work out, how does one fix this? How does one stop this? and that I think we’ve to work out the way to change people’s hearts, and that’s what I’ve been trying to try to my whole career,” Haddish said.
