Sheryl Underwood breaks down on ‘The Talk’ while discussing Terence Crutcher shooting

On Tuesday, Sheryl Underwood broke down nearly to tears while discussing the Terence Crutcher shooting.

Julie Chen had asked, “What can be done to stop racial profiling?” and that discussion led to a powerful, emotional response from Underwood.

At first, Underwood and Aisha Tyler tried honestly to answer the question.

“We have a legacy of racism in this country and if we don’t start calling it racism then we can’t fight it,” said Tyler.

“We don’t have to train the cops not to shoot white people, why you gotta train them not to shoot us?” Underwood chimed in

Then, she started to break down as she continued.

“First thing you gotta do, you gotta make it a hate crime,” she said. “You gotta put people in jail, when you shoot somebody under the color of authority you need to lose your job and you need to lose your livelihood and you need to lose your freedom.”

She went on to add, “Remember there are good police officers out there and the ones that are not, they need to go jail. Don’t tell me this, we got to train! Y’all white and y’all drive all the time and don’t nothing happen to y’all. And we black I’m afraid to drive my damn car!”
