Tiffany Haddish Gets Real About Being Black in America

While attending a Black Lives Matter protest in Los Angeles on Friday, Tiffany Haddish spoke about what it’s like to be Black in America.

“I can’t even drive to Beverly Hills without getting pulled over — and I got a Tesla,” she told CNN. “I shouldn’t be afraid when I see those lights come on behind me, right? I shouldn’t feel like, is this gonna be the last day that I’m on earth? I shouldn’t feel like it’s dangerous to be born the way I was born.”

She continued, “There’s certain people in my family, if they walk out the door, they might not come back. I try to laugh and figure out a way to make it funny … It’s really hard. I got PTSD watching my friends being killed by the police. It’s scary, you shouldn’t be scared to be in America.”

“It’s supposed to be the land of the free, the home of the brave and you’re supposed to be able to have a pursuit of happiness. We’re just trying to pursue that you don’t get killed today,” she concluded.

We love you, Tiffany. Keep speaking on this issue so you can educate the world.
