USAToday reports Jodie Turner-Smith does not want to raise a child in America.
The British actress, who starred in 2019’s “Queen & Slim,” opened up in aLos Angeles-based interview with Britain’s The Sunday Times about her reasons for looking elsewhere to raise her child, as well as why she limits discussion on her personal life.
Turner-Smith, who is seven months pregnant, said she doesn’t want to raise a family in America because “the racial dynamics over here are fraught.”
“White supremacy is overt,” she continued. “It’s the reason I don’t want to raise my kids here.”
She added America’s gun policies are another reason she’s wary of raising a child in the country.
“I don’t want my kids to grow up doing active shooter drills at school,” she added.
