Charlize Theron is so terrified of racism and violence in the United States that she may raise her children elsewhere.

“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],’” the Oscar winner told Chelsea Handler in the May issue of Elle. “Because the last thing I want is for my children to feel unsafe.”

It is important to note that the article goes on to state the following:

Theron, 42, is mom to adopted son Jackson, 6, and daughter August, 2.

“Being raised during the apartheid era in South Africa made me so hyper-aware of equality and human rights. Of course, I have two black kids, but that was always something I was passionate about,” she said. “I don’t even know how to talk about the last year under our new administration. Racism is much more alive and well than people thought … 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.”
