Racism can’t deny anymore: Charlize Theron

Vastavam web: Actor Charlize Theron has said she considers moving out of the US as she fears for the lives of her two black children in the racially-charged environment in the country.In an interview with Elle magazine, the “Atomic Blonde” actor, who was born and raised in South Africa during the apartheid, talked about the prevalent social climate and raising two black children in the US.”Racism is much more alive and well than people thought. We can’t deny it anymore. We have to be vocal. 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,” Theron said.

“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.”I want them to know who they are, and I want them to be so f**king 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,” Theron said.
