As one of the many stars in David E. Talbert‘s ‘Baggage Claim‘, Jill Scott arrived on the recently revived ‘Arsenio‘ show to promote the comedy, which also boasts roles from Trey Songz and ‘Sister Sister’s star Tia Mowry.

While there, the ‘Jilltro’ performer took the time to dish on the joys of motherhood, and the importance of tough love when raising black boys who grow to become black men in today’s America.

An honest word below…

    Real talk. Black boys have to be raised to careful and responsible because society is already out to paint them out to be bad, so it is NOT about living up to that expectation like Chris Brown does.

    We need more mothers like THIS! My mom was a single parent as well and she didn’t play! In our community, we need strong parents and grandparents.

    And, she can say brown if she wants. I’m brown, I may be Black/ African American, but my skin is brown, not black.
