Comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish was part of a Black Women Lead protest this past Friday, and she gave a speech that bordered on the continued police brutality towards blacks.
Haddish, who is known for her breakthrough role in the comedy film Girls Trip and for starring alongside Kevin Hart in Night School, said:
I’m tired of being afraid that my brother is gonna go outside and get shot. I’m so tired of all this violence. I really believe in the power of cussing somebody out. Say your words and then go on about your way.
Why can’t we just do that every now and then? I would love to just be able to cuss the police out and not be afraid.”
Speaking further, she hinted at a brighter future for black people.
I want the people to be empowered. I want power for the people. I want the people to be able to help create laws that will protect us. I want us to be able to prosper and have success, and our children to be healthy. I just want the best for all of us.”
