Katherine Heigl discusses racial injustice with her children

OHMYGOSSIP — Katherine Heigl thinks it is important to discuss racism and racial injustice with her children.
The ’27 Dresses’ star – who has Nancy Leigh, who is from South Korea, and Adelaide, of African-American heritage, and Joshua with her husband Josh Kelley – admits it is a difficult conversation.
Speaking on The Kelly Clarkson Show, she admitted: “I didn’t know how to say, ‘There will be people in this world that don’t like you simply because of the colour of your skin.'”
The family all sat down to then watch programmes which showed historical racial injustice, and then speaking about what they had seen on the show. But her favourite moment was when she told her daughter Adelaide that it’s not her fault and that sometimes people won’t like her based on her skin colour. “But then she goes, ‘I know, I know, I already know, I’m totally beautiful and super cool.'”
Katherine thinks talking to her daughter about racism will “break a piece of her beautiful divine spirit”.
Writing on Instagram, the ‘Ugly Truth’ star said previously: “I can’t sleep. And when I do I wake with a single thought in my head. How will I tell Adalaide? How will I explain the unexplainable? How can I protect her? How can I break a piece of her beautiful divine spirit to do so?
“I can’t sleep. I lay in my bed in the dark and weep for every mother of a beautiful divine black child who has to extinguish a piece of their beloved baby’s spirit to try to keep them alive in a country that has too many sleeping soundly. Eyes squeezed shut. Images and cries and pleas and pain banished from their minds. White bubbles strong and intact. But I lay awake. Finally. Painfully. (sic)”
