Angelina Jolie shares thoughts on systemic racism, wondering if her daughter will be affected


As the mother of an adopted child, Angelina Jolie shared her thoughts on systemic racism.


The "Maleficent" actress died on May 25, when George Floyd was in police custody, addressing ongoing racial tensions and protests in America. Since then, there have been demonstrations all over the country, with people calling for police reform and advocating systemic racism.

Speaking to Harper's Bazaar in the UK, Jolie mentions her 15-year-old daughter Zahra, who was adopted by her Ethiopian ex-husband Brad Pitt, and how she might be concerned if she misbehaves with the system at some point.

"More than 70 million people worldwide have had to flee their homes because of war and violence - and racism and discrimination in America," Jolie said. The other man, woman or child in our country - based on skin color - is intolerable. "

He said: "We must go beyond the sympathy and good intentions of the law and policies that actually address structural racism and impotence. Policing in policing is only the beginning. We have transcended all aspects of society, from our education system to our politics."

The actress, who serves as the special envoy of the High Commissioner for Refugees to the United Nations, spoke directly about the protests and praised the organizers fighting for change.

"People are growing up. Saying they are tired of excuses and heartfelt actions, and showing solidarity with each other when there is enough reaction from those in power. The world seems to be awakening. It is time to change our organizations - those who are most affected and whose voices are being listened to. "

Elsewhere in the interview, Jolie discusses how she spends her childhood with a coronavirus quarantine. Sitara has revealed that she is doing everything she can to calm herself down in an attempt to keep her children calm.

"Like most parents, I focus on staying calm, so my kids don't worry about me. They worry about me," he said. During the lockdown, Vivienne’s bunny passed away during surgery, and we adopted two disabled teenagers. They should be a couple. They were very gentle and helped to focus their care with them during this time. "
