TALKING ABOUT RACE

Mowry has spoken up about how she grew up watching her Black mother get profiled due to her race, while her white father was treated with more respect. Sharing an Instagram post, she expressed:

"Growing up #biracial, mom is black and dad is white, it was very clear to me seeing the #privilege that my dad had."

She expanded on one incident where her mother inquired about a house sale when looking for a home. She was told that the houses were all sold, but when her dad asked, they responded differently.
