“Katrina happened in New Orleans, and I knew,” she said. “Like, just something told me that my child was there. It was weird. It was very, very weird.”

Back in 2018, Sandra spoke with InStyle where she revealed that she would rather people didn’t use the term “adopted child.”

“Let’s all just refer to these kids as ‘our kids.'”

“Don’t say ‘my adopted child,'” she said. “Let’s just say: ‘Our children.'”

Sandra has also recently opened up about a conversation she had with her son aged just 6-years-old about racial profiling.

Speaking with the Grio, Sandra said: “I have a beautiful Black son. At the age of 6, he popped on a hoodie and I was like, ‘We’re gonna have a conversation. It’s different for you.’

“I was like, ‘What does it look like you’re doing with the hoodie?’ And he says, ‘Well, I look like I’m hiding.'”

After asking her son if he had anything to hide, Sandra told him: “Then you don’t need to wear [the hoodie] outside.”

“I said, ‘People are scared and will react to you differently than if you were a white boy.’ And he knows it. I let them see everything. I let them hear and know everything.”

Speaking on Red Table Talk with Willow Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Adrienne Banfield-Norris, Sandra admitted that she sometimes wishes their skin colors “matched.”

“I wish our skins matched, sometimes I do. Because then it would be easier on how people approach us,” she said.

“I have the same feelings as a woman with brown skin, and it being her babies. Or a white woman with white babies.”

At which point Willow responded: “It’s the mother-child dynamic. There is no color.”

Sandra then added that she hoped “one day that will go away.”

“Maybe one day that will go away,” she said. “Maybe one day we will be able to see with different eyes.”
