Countless Americans have expressed their discomfort with the results of the latest presidential election as Donald Trump was elected leader of the free world. In particular, parents of Black children are concerned that their kids' lives are in danger now that a bigot and glorified racist is in office.
Specifically, actress Kristin Davis, the mother of a Black child, is worried and says she must "protect" her daughter "at all costs."
In a recent interview, the Sex and the City actress revealed that after learning that Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton lost to Trump, her initial thought was to learn how to shoot a gun so she could protect her 5-year-old Black daughter, Gemma Rose Davis.
"My initial thoughts on Wednesday morning was that I wanted to move to the woods and learn to shoot a gun" she said in an interview with WNYC. "It makes no sense. I'm fully aware. I'm 100 percent aware that it literally makes no sense but... the fear of what is happening and how am I going to make sure that no one hurts my child, even in a subtle way, which was already a fear I had honestly, but it just became so, so heightened."
The actress even pointed out that she's aware she grew up in white privilege, but now has to flip a switch as she's raising a minority child.
"I am white. I have lived in white privilege," she said. "I thought I knew before adopting my daughter that I was in white privilege, that I understood what that meant. But until you actually have a child, which is like your heart being outside you, and that heart happens to be in a brown body, and you have people who are actively working against your child, it's hard. It fills me with terror."
