Actress Sandra Bullock has addressed backlash she’s received for adopting Black children.
Bullock says she loves them as much as a Brown-skinned woman would but that she wishes their skin matched.
“Because then it would be easier on how people approach us. It’s our anxiety. It’s our fear,” she said on the Red Table Talk. “It’s our cross to bear the minute you become a mom. And I have the same feelings as a woman with brown skin with it being her babies or a white woman with, you know, white babies.”
She continued: “He’s the example that I would want my children to have. I have a partner who’s very Christian. And so there’s two very different ways of looking at things. And I don’t always agree with him He doesn’t always agree with me,” she added. “But he is an example even when I don’t agree with him that I go, ‘If they can take away from that, and if that is where they feel drawn to, then he’s the exact right parent.'”
