‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star Kandi Burruss is not shying away from keeping it real with her 4-year-old son Ace on matters related to race and police brutality.
As the nation continues to confront uncomfortable conversations around the topic in the wake of the unjust deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and many other African Americans who have died at the hands of police, Burruss took to ‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen’ Wednesday (June 10) to share how important it is for parents to ensure their children are aware of what’s happening.
Hear her emotional statements inside:
Dishing with host Andy Cohen, Kandi stated:
“My son, Ace, who’s four, he was a policeman on career day. So when my husband, Todd [Tucker], was trying to explain to him what was going on and why everybody was so upset and what was happening with the police, Ace was confused,” Burruss noted, getting visibly emotional. “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? For you to be black and have to worry about the police being the bad guys,” she said through tears. “That’s an emotional thing for me. And Andy, I know you care about us, but you don’t have to think about that. You know what I’m saying? That’s something that we have to think about for our sons.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Burruss discussed making history as the first African American woman to win ‘Masked Singer.’ See that below.
