She along with the host discussed on how to tackle the issues concerned with racism. They said that differences would definitely be there but a common ground in terms of appeasement was necessary to stop this brutality that is going on.

Haddish said that she grew up in South Central Los Angeles. When she was a young girl, she had been the direct subject of anti semetic and racist behavior. She had seen many of her friends hunted and ultimately killed by the police officials just because they were dark skinned. At that time all she could do was to request the officials to let them go and requested them not to do it. Such was the abject condition of the society in which she grew up. And now after so many years, the society is just reverting back to the same position.

Haddish believed in the cause for which Floyd died. In order to show her solidarity and support, to the rest of his family, Tiffany attended the funeral. It was a show of respect for a soul who had lost his life unnecessarily to police brutality and an age old social evil.
