Tiffany Haddish has an interesting suggestion when it comes to solving racism on a global level. During The Hollywood Reporter‘s comedy actress roundtable, Tiffany gave her hypothesis on a grassroots way of combating the hatred we see in daily society. Withholding sex! If you are dating a white man, let his dick suffer! If we can get the white men of the world to collectively develop blue balls, racism will solve itself!
Metro UK says that Tiffany appeared on the roundtable discussion with Robin Thede, Jameela Jamil, Amy Sedaris, Jane Levy, and Elle Fanning. The actresses all appeared via video call to keep with social distancing. Tiffany was asked about what it would be like to put on a comedy show during such a tense time and Tiffany said that she would focus on the laughs, but also that she wants to start talking about real topics, especially ones affecting black people. Tiffany recently spoke at a Black Lives Matter protest in L.A., and had revealed that she suffers PTSD from her friends getting killed by police:
“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.”
So when she was asked about trying to be funny during these times, she revealed her cure for racism:
“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.”
Well, I’m not too sure how effective this would be, but I think Tiffany’s suggestion is something we could at least try, right? And if it doesn’t pan out, Tiffany is full of ways to deal with racists. The next step is to shit in their shoes.
