Monday on "The Talk" host Sheryl Underwood discusses her experience during the emotionally charged, on-air conversation with Sharon Osbourne on March 10, along with expert on diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice, Dr. Donald E. Grant. "I didn't want to escalate things with Sharon, because I thought I was having a conversation with a friend, but also, I knew I had to be an example for others to follow. I didn't want to be perceived as that angry Black woman, and that really scared me. I didn't want to be that and I wanted to remain calm and focused." Fellow host Elaine Welteroth adds, "And I think for me, I was just really entering that conversation with the hope of finding a common ground and I didn't feel like I was heard, which saddened me because part of the reason I joined this show... was because I thought that we had an opportunity here... to have conversations that help show people how to bridge these divides in our country and that we can do it with empathy."
