Charlize Theron says racism might drive her out of the USA

16 April 2018
The USA is a tricky place to live if you have black children, mostly because they face the threat of racist treatment on a daily basis. This is one sentiment that Charlize Theron can definitely relate to, because her children, August and Jackson Theron are both black.
 
As a result of this, the actress and philanthropist has confessed that she's been tempted to leave the USA because of the racism that her children might face one day
 
"There are places in this country where, if I got a job, I wouldn't take it. I wouldn't travel with my kids to some parts of America, and that's really problematic. There are a lot of times when I look at my kids and I'm like, if this continues, I might have to [leave America]. Because the last thing I want is for my children to feel unsafe."
 

 
 
 
She also spoke very openly about how hard she wants to work to make sure that her children grow up in a safe and happy space:
 
"I want them to know who they are, and I want them to be so fucking proud of who they are. Building confidence for them right now is an oath I made to myself when I brought them home. They need to know where they come from and be proud of that. But they're going to have to know that it's a different climate for them than it is for me, and how unfair that is. If I can do something about that, of course I'm going to."
