Harris Faulkner of 'Fox News' Says Conversation about Race Is Not a Shock for Her Biracial Kids

Harris Faulkner admitted that talking about race is nothing new in her family, but is now a forced topic black parents have to talk about with their children.

As a Fox News anchor, Harris Faulkner is constantly up to date with the news and knows better than to talk to her children about racial injustices in America.

However, following the recent killing of George Floyd at the hands of a white cop, the “Outnumbered” co-host believes the topic is a must-have with children.

FAULKNER SHARES ABOUT CONVERSATIONS WITH HER KIDS

“My family is ecumenical, and it’s biracial, so the fact that we’re having [race conversations] is not a shock,” the mom-of-two said. “It’s just the way we’re forced into acknowledging some things right now.”

Racism has been prevalent in America since time immemorial, and while things may have changed through the years, there still exist many white people who look down on black individuals.

As a mom to two biracial daughters, Danika and Bella, Faulkner wants to make sure that her children are well aware of their skin and how their color signifies change.

“I’m teaching my girls that you’ve got to come into the center of the room if you want to find peace,” the 54-year-old added.

The broadcaster and her husband had a makeshift salon in their backyard and documented the hair-cutting process on social media.

Faulkner’s husband, Tony Berlin, is of Jewish heritage, raising their children as Christians. After asking “When is this going to end?” the anchor replied:

“It will end when people decide that resilience and surviving this is more important than being right.”

RAISING BIRACIAL CHILDREN

Despite being a busy career woman, Faulkner always makes sure to spend time with her kids, making them breakfast every morning.

The proud mom has seen her girls as a “blessing” since the day they came into her life and had been loving the job of a parent.

She shared that one of the things she prioritizes, in a world where cellphones are the thor hands of kids, is keeping eye contact while talking to her.

QUARANTINE WITH FAMILY

In the past weeks, Faulkner has been in quarantine with her family due to the lockdown. Among the things she did was to give her husband a haircut.

The broadcaster and her husband had a makeshift salon in their backyard and documented the hair-cutting process on social media.

The couple has been happily married for several years, sharing the same love for journalism. Berlin was once a producer for Cox Broadcasting before appearing as a news anchor for nearly a decade.
