“You don’t have to train police not to shoot white people, why do you have to train them not to shoot us?”
That’s what former Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. International Grand Basileus (aka International President)(2008-2012), Sheryl Underwood said during a segment on The Talk that addressed the police killing yesterday of,Terence Crutcher, an unarmed black man in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
During the segment, hosts of the show sat at a table and discussed their initial feelings about the shooting. Sheryl, sat quietly for most of the conversation, listening as the other women spoke their minds and then chimed in at the end leaving the rest of the group speechless.
She spoke from her heart, saying what many on television are too scared to say and speaking a truth that brought viewers and even herself to tears.
“And don’t tell me this, ‘We got to train.’ Ya’ll white, ya’ll drive all the time and don’t nothing happen to ya’ll! And we Black and I afraid to drive my car because if they don’t know who I am, I could be shot!”
“Until ya’ll feel that” she said pointing at the audience. “This ain’t never gon’ stop!”
