Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Huffpost.com: “Sandra Bullock Admits She Isn’t As ‘Woke’ As She Thought Parenting 2 Black Kids”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The “Unforgivable” star, 57 — who is the mother of two Black adopted children, Louis, 11, and Laila, 9 — got candid on an episode of “Red Table Talk” Wednesday about her experiences as a white woman raising two children of color and how eye-opening it has been for her.

Bullock told a story, around the 11:30 mark above, about how her young daughter left a room “depressed” after catching a few moments of the South Korean Netflix series “Squid Games” while Bullock’s partner Bryan Randall was watching it.

Bullock said that when she asked her daughter why she was so upset by the show, she assumed it was because of its violence. But Bullock was surprised by her daughter’s response: “‘I don’t want Dad to watch that … because there’s no Black people in it.’”

“The fact that that was fire in her belly made me so happy that she was already voicing,” Bullock said. “I let [my kids] teach me and tell me what they need to know. I thought I was educated and woke, I thought I had it all, and guess what, I wasn’t.”

Bullock also confessed that “as a white parent who loves her children more than life itself, I’m scared of everything,” admitting that she’s probably “laying all kinds of existential anxiety on them.”
