The next morning (July 8), Queen stopped by The Today Show to promote the flick and comment on the Dallas police shooting.
“It’s terrible, but we have to get real about it,” Queen expressed. “If we get real about it, we can deal with it. But if we want to act like, ‘Oh no, that’s their problem,’ and ‘This only happens here.’ No, it’s happening to all of us.”
“I’m Queen Latifah, but I’m black wherever I go,” Queen added. “I deal with the same experiences that other people deal with. I’m also the daughter of a cop, I’m also the sister of a cop, the cousin of a cop and the niece of cops. I don’t want the guns turned on police any more than I want the guns turned on us.”
