Tiffany Haddish Jokes About How To End Racism: Stop Having Sex With White Men, Sex Is Power
Comedian Tiffany Haddish has experienced the lasting effects of racism and police brutality firsthand – so the current Black Lives Matter movement is personal to her. Dressed in a shirt that read, “Fed Up,” she recently marched for justice for George Floyd. Tiffany Haddish added that watching a friend be murdered by law enforcement, greatly affected her mental health. She said:
“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.”
However, Tiffany Haddish is suggesting a different kind of method that she feels will eradicate racism for good. In a recent interview, she joked that women should stop having sex with white men in order to redistribute power:
“People have asked me, ‘Tiffany, how can we solve this? What do you think we could do?’ And to be honest, I don’t know. But I know when I have problems and I want them solved, I just stop having sex and everything’s solved.”
“So, if everybody just stopped having sex, especially if you are in an interracial relationship and your man is white, stop having sex with your white man. Things will change. If you are a white woman and you’ve got a white man, stop having sex with that white man. When a white man ain’t gettin’ no sex, things change, that I know. These are the things I would talk about…Sex is power. Now, you take the power away and he wants that power. Now he’s walking around with blue balls, you know what I’m saying?”
“If a Black man ain’t gettin’ no sex, he’s going to team up with the white man, ‘Look, brother, we’ve got to figure this out. OK? The women ain’t having sex with us and I don’t want to have sex with a man. So we’ve got to figure this out. We’ve got to make it right.’ I’m telling you, things would change.”
