Actress Tiffany Hadish Claims She is Afraid Her Children Will Be “Hunted Down” and “Killed”
In a Youtube series “What’s in Your Glass,” Hollywood actress and comedian, Tiffany Haddish, opened up about the real reason why she refused to have kids. During the interview, the comedian feared that her children would be either “hunted down” or “killed”’ because of racism.
During the interview, Haddish told the show’s host, Carmelo Anthony, that for some time, people have constantly been asking her whether she has any plans to have children. The comedian refused to do so, stating that if she had children, they would not survive given the country’s tense political atmosphere.
Haddish went on to say that initially, she would make up countless excuses on why she refused to have children. The actress lists down the various reasons, including having financial security, but deep down, Haddish revealed that she could not bear the thought “that I would hate to give birth to someone that looks like me and then knowing that they’re gonna be hunted or killed.”
The comedian claimed that she was not a “fearful person.” However, her experiences with her friends being killed by a police officer was a major eye-opener. She claimed that the incident made her realize that “Dang, as a black person, we’re being hunted.” She continued by saying that blacks are being treated like animals, “We’re hunted, and were slaughtered. And it’s like they get this license to kill us, and that’s not okay.”
She went on to complain about white privilege, saying that security was not something that white people had to put up or even think about. Haddish claimed that in order to fight racism, they have to come together as a “unit.” She also addressed the growing disillusionment against radical left-wing supporters and moderates. Haddish believed that while they might not agree on the same things, they have to find common ground to “move forward as human beings.”
The Hollywood star hoped that black people could find solutions to fix the growing issue. The comedian believed that the best thing to do so was to “change people’s hearts.” Hadish concluded with a grim prospect that everyone wanted to be happy, and no individual wanted to see their family being “slaughtered.”
When Anthony asked her how she would see the black community in the next five years, Haddish gave a more optimistic response. She hoped that by then, America would finally be able to dismantle racism.
Back in June, Hadish also shared the same sentiment in an interview for CNN. Referring to the Black Lives Matter protests, Hadish claimed that oftentimes, police officers would pull her car over whenever she drives to Beverly Hills. She also shared her growing fear that she might not be able to see family members alive whenever they walk out of the door, declaring that this type of fear should not exist in modern America.
