Tomi Lahren isn’t with The Blaze anymore, but she isn’t staying silent, either, and she still feels that it is important to talk about race.
In an interview with Playboy, Lahren spoke on the disharmony between blacks and whites when discussing race in America.
“I think race in America is a huge one,” she said. “I think that’s something that needs to be confronted, certainly.”
Asked to clarify her comments, Lahren went off on a rant about how white people are afraid of offending black people nowadays.
“For so long it’s been, ‘Those are black issues that white people can’t talk about them,’” she explained, adding, “Okay, but if you’re calling me a racist and saying white people don’t understand you, wouldn’t white people inherently have to be a part of that conversation?”
I actually had a conversation with Charlamagne [tha God] about this, that there are white people who are afraid to talk about race because they don’t want to be labeled a racist, so they don’t want to talk about the issues; they don’t even want to talk to black people because they’re so afraid they’ll slip up and be offensive. Which is a huge problem. We’re segregating ourselves because we’re afraid we’re going to offend each other.
