R&B Diva Monica Brown is among the starlets in the running for Tamar Braxton‘s old job on daytime talk show The Real.
Monica was invited back as a guest co-host on The Real on Monday. She joined original co-hosts Adrienne Houghton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley in a candid discussion on post-election America.
The topic of discussion was the sudden rise in racist incidents around the country — thanks to the mainstream media’s saturation news coverage of incidents that would otherwise be ignored if Trump wasn’t the president-elect.
For example, the mainstream media ignored incidents such as the viciously beating of a pregnant Portland, Oregon woman by a group of bat wielding anti-Trump thugs.
Monica gave a heartfelt opinion on why everyone in America must unite against racism and contribute to a solution.
“This election has also given way to a lot that was already there, clearly, but it was hidden. So what this election has done is made people that are comfortable with racism, and things of that nature, who initially felt like, ‘Okay, I’ll keep that to myself or amongst my core group’… it has now become widespread and accepted,” she said.
“The recognition that there is a problem means that we must unify. We can no longer ignore what has to be done,” said the 36-year-old mother-of-3.
The episode of The Real will air on Tuesday, November 15th. Check your local listings.
