Kandi Burruss broke down in tears while trying to explain police brutality to her 4-year-old son, Ace Tucker.
On Wednesday’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star got emotional while explaining an adult conversation with her toddler, who previously dressed up as a police officer for “Career Day” at his school.
Kandi said her son asked her if cops were “the bad guys” now.
“Now, isn’t that crazy to have to explain that to a 4-year-old?” Kandi told Cohen and Tamron Hall via Skype. “For you to be black and have to worry about the police being the bad guys? I know y’all say I cry all the time, but that’s an emotional thing for me,” the reality star said through tears.
Speaking to Cohen directly, Kandi said, “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.”
Kandi also said hr 17-year-old daughter, Riley, unfollowed her white friends who refused to discuss racial politics on their timelines.
“She is very opinionated. She was like, ‘OK. I am unfollowing every single friend or person that is not black who is not speaking up about this, who is not showing that they are an ally with our community.'”
