South African actress Charlize Theron became a U.S. citizen in 2007. She grew up in a country knowing what actual racism truly looked like. You know, because of apartheid and Mandela and yada yada.
However, while appearing on uber-liberal comedian Chelsea Handler’s Netflix show, Theron says she’ll consider leaving America because of the racism she currently witnesses in the U.S. on a daily basis.
The answer is yes. Charlize is deluded.
When Charlize Theron isn’t making really dumb statement about gun control she apparently passes the time by making really dumb statements about race. The whitest person you’ve ever seen says there are parts of America that are so racist that she won’t go there and worries that this racism may drive her from the country entirely. It should be noted that she is from South Africa where white people are killed for the color of their skin and white farmers are driven from their land by angry blacks.
More from Elle:
Chelsea Handler: You’re raising two children of color. Obviously, coming from South Africa, you know a lot about racial inequality, but what are your thoughts on Black Lives Matter and our current climate?
Charlize Theron: Being raised during the apartheid era in South Africa made me so hyperaware of equality and human rights. Of course, I have two black kids, but that was always something I was passionate about. I don’t even know how to talk about the last year under our new administration. But racism is much more alive and well than people thought. We can’t deny it anymore. We have to be vocal. There are places in this country where, if I got a job, I wouldn’t take it. I wouldn’t travel with my kids to some parts of America, and that’s really problematic. There are a lot of times when I look at my kids and I’m like, If this continues, I might have to [leave America]. Because the last thing I want is for my children to feel unsafe.
Theron and Handler are basically talking to hear their own voices at this point.
Charlize clearly suffers from Trump derangement syndrome.
For the sake of her young children, she needs help.
