Kristin Davis Is Scared for Black Daughter Under Donald Trump Presidency

”Sex and the City“ star says adoption has made her hyperaware of her white privilege

Kristin Davis adopted an African-American daughter in 2011. Fast-forward to 2016, and the “Sex and the City” star is fearful of what a Trump presidency will mean to little Gemma Rose.

“I am white. I have lived in white privilege. I thought I knew before adopting my daughter that I was in white privilege, that I understood what that meant,” Davis said at a recent event held at The Greene Space in New York City, per the Daily News. “But until you actually have a child, which is like your heart being (outside of) and that heart happens to be in a brown body, and you have people who are actively working against your child, it’s hard.”

The 51-year-old actress grew up in South Carolina, where she saw a lot of racism. The current climate, however, has placed her on what Davis called “an intense learning curve” about the subject.

“Right now I want to be in the bubble. I don’t want to talk to any Trump people,” the mother of a five-year-old told the crowd.

“My initial thoughts (after the election) was that I wanted to move to the woods and learn to shoot a gun,” Davis added. “The fear of what is happening and how am I going to make sure that no one hurts my child, even in a subtle way, which was already a fear I had honestly, but it just became so, so heightened.”

Davis can next be seen Saturday in Hallmark Channel TV movie, “A Heavenly Christmas,” which premieres at 8/7c.
