A little boy torn and confused
Kandi Burruss is getting real about the reality many Black mothers are facing across the country, as Black Lives Matter protests continue to engage in cities around the world.
Burruss, whose son is only 4 years old, revealed that the youngster is finding this a confusing and challenging time, as he is exposed to the knowledge of police brutality for the first time.
Burruss revealed that on Career Day at school, her son Ace wanted to be a policeman, and is finding it difficult to understand why people are getting upset.
The reality star shared that she and her husband tried to explain the civil unrest, but found it challenging.
"Ace was confused. He was like, ‘So, the police are the bad guys?’ Now isn’t that crazy to have to explain that to a four-year-old," she shared on Watch What Happens Live.
She continued, "For you to be Black and have to worry about the police being the bad guys. I know you guys say I cry all the time but that’s an emotional thing for me."
Burruss is also a mom to 17-year-old Riley, and a 6-month-old named Blaze. She said to Cohen of her children, "Andy, I know you care about us, but you don’t have to think about that. That’s something that we have to think about for our sons."
