JENNIFER HUDSON OPENS UP ABOUT HER EXPERIENCES WITH PREJUDICE
Monday, Feb 5, 2018

Jennifer Hudson graced the cover of February’s cover of Cosmopolitan UK and opened up about how she still has to deal with prejudice despite her success.  

“There have been several situations where I get on a plane and [the air steward] assumes that I’m [meant to be] in the back of the plane. That happens a lot. I’m like ‘No, my seat is up there [in first class], thank you’.”

She also opened up about how people think her home belongs to her white driver.

“People also assume that my home belongs to my white driver, Charles. One time, I was having something moved into my house and they wanted to know where to put it. I said, ‘There.’ [The removal man] just stood there. When Charles came in, he asked him, ‘So where would you like these things?’ Charles said, ‘She said she wanted it right there. You’re talking to the wrong person. Stuff like this happens in your own home! I defy all the odds being African American, living in a wealthy neighborhood and being a working mom. It’s too many foreign things in one person! It’s so ignorant. Race is just one of them. I face them all.”

To all of those doubting Jennifer Hudson’s worth… Big mistake, HUGE!
