Kristin, 54, is a mom to her baby son, whom she adopted in 2018, and daughter Gemma Rose, 7.
“This is what I want to say, from a white person adopting black children: You absolutely do not fully understand. There’s no doubt. There’s no way you could,” the Sex and the City actress said.
“It’s one thing to be watching racism happening to other people and it’s another thing when it’s your child. And you haven’t personally been through it. It’s a big issue,” she explained.

Kristin then proceeded to recall a time she encountered racism when Gemma just a baby. She spoke of a time when people told her that her baby girl would become “a great basketball player” one day.
The Couples Retreat star admitted, “But I will never be black, no matter how hard I try...That is the truth, and we have to accept it. And therefore I will never be able to say to Gemma, ‘I understand how you feel because this happened to me.’“
“That’s what’s painful and hard,” she added. “It made me on a mission to find a place where she was exposed to everything. It made me on a mission to put her in situations where I was the only white person.”
