  • Hi, everybody.

  • Welcome to our show.

  • Hopefully, you're seeing this--

  • this should be Thursday, June 4th.

  • We taped the show a few days ago.

  • Things are changing every minute in our country.

  • Today is our first show airing since the protests of George

  • Floyd started around the world.

  • I have said this on my social media.

  • But I want to say it again to my viewers.

  • I stand with the protesters who are exercising their rights.

  • And I want to be an ally fighting for change.

  • As a white person, I don't always know what to say.

  • I think right now white people have

  • to just sit in our discomfort.

  • And we have to admit that there's

  • a lot we don't know about black people's lives

  • and about a black person's experience.

  • And there is horrible injustice towards black people

  • that has been ignored for far too long.

  • I've tried to use my platform to raise awareness

  • on different issues over the years.

  • I like to think that I'm doing my best.

  • But I think it's time that we have to look at ourselves.

  • And we have to say, we have not done enough.

  • I want to learn how to be a better

  • person, how to do better.

  • I was the dancing lady for a little while.

  • And now I want to help educate my audience.

  • I want to educate myself.

  • I want to say hi to my friend tWitch.

  • tWitch, I think a lot of people are being silent right now.

  • Because everyone is scared they're

  • going to say the wrong thing.

  • Yeah, I mean, there's part of me that gets it.

  • Because we have a society now that's like, on social media,

  • if you say the wrong thing, you get ripped apart.

  • So here's the reason that that's problematic.

  • And it can go on many different things, right?

  • As a man, there's going to be times

  • that I'm going to have to speak up

  • for misogyny and all kinds of stuff like that.

  • But I can't be silent because I'm

  • afraid of saying the wrong thing.

  • Out of love, out of love for the person

  • that you're speaking up for, you have

  • to be willing to make that mistake

  • and then go back and correct it.

  • So then you know.

  • Because if you don't make the mistake, just by doing nothing,

  • then that still is a stance.

  • And non-stance is a stance at this point in time,

  • you know what I mean?

  • So when it comes to race relations

  • and how we're yelling "Black Lives Matter"

  • and speaking up for the injustices

  • that we as black people have faced

  • in this country for centuries now, at this point,

  • we just need allies.

  • We don't need you to be perfect, you know what I mean?

  • Because-- and excuse my French-- but the [MUTED]

  • we're fighting against, it's not perfect.

  • So we don't need a well-formulated--

  • we need people that care.

  • We need people that are going to be willing to face the raw,

  • uncut, I'll make mistakes, but I'll bounce right back to be

  • being with y'all again.

  • We need that, you know?

  • So I understand that there's a little bit of resistance,

  • and a little bit of hesitant forward motion for that.

  • But at the end of the day, I love you.

  • You have many, many, many people of color,

  • black people, that love you, that will--

  • and I'm not talking about the social media folks.

  • I'm talking about people that could call you,

  • and from a place of love say, yo, I

  • saw what you were trying to say.

  • But next time, word it this way, because this.

  • And you know it's coming from a place of love rather than like,

  • we're going to tear a celebrity down, you know what I'm saying?

  • We don't have to worry about that right now.

  • What we have to do is we have to connect on a human level

  • and make sure that we're showing each other that we care.

  • And on the flipside of that.

  • We also have to find a place of patience

  • and not rip each other apart for trying, you know?

  • That sometimes things are going to be

  • misspoken because we all don't have the same experiences.

  • So there's a lot of things that need to work at the same time.

  • But none of us as a people on either side can stop trying,

  • you know.

  • That was really long winded.

  • I'm sorry.

  • But it was-- yeah.

  • No, not at all, not at all.

  • And I think that that's what we have to have,

  • a little patience for at least, if someone thinks

  • they're trying to say the right thing, and we do

  • need to understand if it wasn't said the right way, instead

  • of being--

  • there's so much criticism in the world.

  • There's so much anger and hate.

  • And I get it.

  • But we need to learn how to be your allies.

  • And learn what we've done wrong for so long

  • that we didn't help change this a long time ago.

  • But I think this is--

  • it's gone on far too long.

  • And now, you have, I hope, an army

  • of allies that will help change all the things that have not

  • been done right for so long.

  • But that is what I think we need to hear,

  • is that we won't get torn apart for trying

  • to say something supportive.

  • One of the things tWitch and I talked about on the phone,

  • which has certainly been an aspect of my life,

  • is when you know better, you do better.

  • The prime example in my life has always been,

  • I grew up making fun of my friends as a kid 40 years ago.

  • Then I learned.

  • And then I knew better.

  • And now I do better.

  • And I work for Ellen DeGeneres.

  • Right, absolutely.

  • And that is a perfect example.

  • Because, listen, I am from--

  • I was born and raised in Montgomery, Alabama, right?

  • And as much love as that place has, as far as

  • like progressing with the times, and accepting

  • people of all cultures, and things like that,

  • those are things that I had to learn.

  • So I had to look back on past mistakes that I had.

  • And I've been corrected myself from numerous walks of life.

  • But that's what it is.

  • It's when you get corrected, you just

  • go-- again, from place of love-- you go,

  • you know what, I'm sorry, I understand.

  • And moving on, I know how to address these things.

  • Just know that I'm with you.

  • Just know that I'm with you.

  • I could take that correction.

  • And then I'm still going to be walking right alongside you.

  • And then even in times, I'm going to be in the back of you,

  • holding you up, if I need to do that, you know?

  • That's what--

  • We have-- we have created a culture, and all of us

  • are guilty of it, of it not being OK to make mistakes.

  • And we need to be able to make the mistakes.

  • Absolutely.

  • The key is that we learn from those mistakes.

Hi, everybody.
