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.

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.

“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.
