Eve and her husband, multimillionaire Maximillion Cooper, have been together for 10 years, but they're now having some of their most meaningful and "uncomfortable" discussions.
The rapper opened up those conversations with Maximillion, who's white, while co-hosting "The Talk."
"I am having some of the most difficult and uncomfortable conversations I think I've ever had — and vice versa — with my husband," Eve said. "But, at the same time, it's a beautiful thing, because … I don't know his life through his eyes. He doesn't know my life through my eyes."
The couple married in 2014 after four years of dating.
"All he can do is try to understand and try to ask the questions, and he wants to understand, and that's what the nation — that's what the world — has to do," she said. "It's gonna be uncomfortable. Yeah, it's going to be uncomfortable! But we have to be OK with being uncomfortable so that we can get to a solution."
The race-related conversations come following the death of George Floyd, who was killed in Minneapolis, Minnesota, when a white police officer pinned him to the ground for several minutes by kneeling on his neck as George repeatedly cried out that he couldn't breathe.
The killing set off worldwide protests and demonstrations against police brutality.
"There are some people that are having beautiful, peaceful protests, with their fists in the air and their hands in the air and all different colors and genders, all together, on one knee, wanting to get past this," Eve said.
The rapper is hopeful that the country and the world can learn from this moment and change police practices, which many believe are discriminatory against black men and women.
"We are under rock bottom," Eve said. "The only thing we can do now is to build up. I pray that we can build up from here."
