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.
