Amid the Black Lives Matter protests that are currently happening all over the world, Porsha Williams opened up about her first experience with racism that she can remember, when she was only 6! Apparently, the reality TV star remembers the KKK throwing stones at her when she was just a little child!
While on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Porsha discussed the BLM movement and more!
That is also when she shared her own personal experience with racism, going back all the way to age 6!
Fittingly enough, it happened during a civil rights march in Georgia, not much different from what is going on at the moment.
The celeb mentioned that she was six years old and attended the march with her grandfather.
That is when she shockingly recalled how ‘We came across Ku Klux Klan who decided they were going to protest our protest. They threw rocks at us — I actually got hit with one. They chased us all the way back to the buses. We had busloads of people with us and they chased us back to the buses and called us the n-word and anything else you could imagine the KKK would be calling us.’
While she did not really understand what that meant at the time, years later, she is using that experience to continue fighting for equality.
‘What I got out of that was to keep on, regardless. That movement is still continuing on and I think that’s what’s inside of me that’s not going to stop. I know a lot of people are protesting now and I know a lot of times when the media stops covering it, it kind of dies down and ends. But it’s not going to stop this time.’
As you know by now, the current protests happening in all 50 states and all over the world were sparked by the senseless killing of George Floyd, at the hands of the police.
