Olivia Singh, Insider, December 1, 2021

Sandra Bullock said that as a white mother to two Black children named Louis and Laila, she’s protective and “scared of everything.”

“As a white parent who loves her children more than life itself, I’m scared of everything,” Bullock, 57, said during an appearance on the latest episode of “Red Table Talk” released on Wednesday on Facebook Watch.


Bullock adopted Louis in 2010 and Laila in 2015. On “RTT,” the Oscar-winning actress said that she panics “at everything.”

“I think they’re gonna die all the time,” she said. {snip}


The “Unforgivable” star said that she’s been “schooling” Louis about discrimination since he was 6 years old and put a hoodie over his head.

“I let him see everything,” Bullock said. “I let him see everything on television. I let him process it. He knows how the world works. He knows how cruel it is. He knows how unfair it is, and now Laila is knowing it.”
