Tiffany Haddish says racism is making her afraid to have children
American actress and comedienne Tiffany Haddish has opened up about her fear of having children.
The 40-year-old Girl’s Trip actress and comedian made an appearance on Carmelo Anthony‘s What’s In Your Glass?
During her appearance, Tiffany opened up about how racism is playing into her fears about motherhood.
“I’m a little older now and people are always asking when I’m gonna have some babies,” she said.
“There’s a part of me that would like to do that, and I always make up these excuses like, ‘Oh, I need a million dollars in the bank before I do that, I need this, I need that.’ But really, it’s like, I would hate to give birth to someone that looks like me…knowing that they’re gonna be hunted or killed,” she said, tearing up.
“Like, why would I put someone through that?”
“And white people don’t have to think about that. It’s time to talk about that, and how we have to come together as a community and work as a unit — and maybe we don’t all agree on the same things, but we need to just find some common ground and move forward as human beings,” she continued.
“We’re all trying to figure out, how do you fix this? How do you stop this? And I think we have to figure out how to change people’s hearts, and that’s what I’ve been trying to do my whole career.”
