Even though "The Tonight Show" isn't a political show,
it's my responsibility to stand up against intolerance
and extremism as a human being.
What happened over the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia,
was just disgusting.
I was watching the news like everyone else,
and you're seeing, like, Nazi flags and torches
and white supremacists, and I was sick to my stomach.
My daughters are in the next room playing, and I'm thinking,
how can I explain to them that there's so much hatred
in this world?
They're 2 years old and 4 years old.
They don't know what hate is.
They go to the playground
and they have friends of all races and backgrounds.
They just play and they laugh and they have fun.
But as kids grow up, they need people to look up to,
to show them what's right and good.
They need parents and teachers, and they need leaders who appeal
to the best in us.
The fact that it took the President two days
to come out and clearly denounce racists and white supremacists
is shameful, and I think he finally spoke out
because people everywhere stood up and said something.
It's important for everyone, especially white people
in this country, to speak out against this.
Ignoring it is just as bad as supporting it.
And remember, there are people who have given their lives
to make sure this kind of hate doesn't spread.
They fought and died on the right side of history.
One brave woman in Charlottesville,
Heather Heyer, died standing up for what's right
at the age of 32.
I can't look at my beautiful, growing, curious daughters
and say nothing when this kind of thing is happening.
We all need to stand against what is wrong,
acknowledge that racism exists,
and stand up for what is right and civil and kind,
and to show the next generation
that we haven't forgotten how hard people have fought
for human rights.
We cannot do this.
We can't go backward.
We can't go backward.
Thank you all for watching and listening.
This is "The Tonight Show," and we'll be right back.
