Latifah (left) insists that "racism is still alive and kicking". The actor and rapper, 46, was being celebrated at VH1's Hip Hop Honors, and took the opportunity to speak out following the recent shootings of two black men in the US, reported Digital spy. In the wake of the deaths, five police officers were killed after a man opened fire near a peaceful protest in Dallas. “We all know the world is really tense right now," Latifah said. “I'm hoping that we can somehow manage to channel all of these emotions that we have, in a positive way, and really do something to change our world." She added.
