Queen Latifah at the 2016 VH1 Hip Hop Honors: 'Racism Is Still Alive and Kicking'
Queen Latifah had something to say at the 2016 VH1 Hip Hop Honors.
"Listen we all know the world, that our world, is really tense right now," she began. "I'm hoping that we can somehow manage to channel all of these emotions that we have in a positive way."
"I don't care how much or things I have, or Puff has," Latifah continued. "If I go outside and try to hail a cab and he passes me for the white woman standing right there, that racism is still alive and kicking. And we have to change that. And I'm not blaming the white lady, she needed a cab too."
"I'm just saying we need to change this attitude," she added.
