Amid massive protests and demonstrations happening around America, Tika Sumpter gave a timely reminder to those in interracial couples. According to Sumpter, their White partners will be fine, and that they need to fight on their behalf instead.

"They need to continue to fight for us. If they get offended when you talk about racists, you have a bigger problem on your hands."

HER OWN INTERRACIAL EXPERIENCE

Tika Sumpter herself is in an interracial marriage with Nick James, and their relationship was subject to criticism for years due to the fact that she chose to marry a White man. Now that issues of racial injustice are being addressed nationwide, the "Haves and the Have Nots" actress reminded Black people with White spouses that it should be their White spouses' responsibility to fight for them.

SUPPORTING THE BLACK COMMUNITY

In this regard, Tika made it a point to remind them that while some think the White community also needs protection, at this point in time, the Black community needs it a whole lot more given the troubling circumstances that a lot of them have been experiencing recently.

His death reminded the world of the many other victims of police brutality, and people from around the world have rallied behind the Black community in support.

WHAT SPARKED IT ALL

Many have taken to the streets to protest the death of George Floyd, a Minneapolis man who was killed while out on a grocery run for allegedly writing a bad check. Although he was insisting on his innocence, police officers pinned him to the ground with an officer's knee on his neck, causing him to suffocate.

His death reminded the world of the many other victims of police brutality, and people from around the world have rallied behind the Black community in support.
