‘RHOA’ star Porsha Williams got candid about her experience protesting for Black Lives Matter, and said her daughter’s ‘future is on the line’.
Porsha Williams, 38, opened up about protesting on the front lines after she stepped out on May 29 with thousands of Black Lives Matter supporters in Atlanta. It follows the tragic death of George Floyd, in which the unarmed black man was pinned to the ground by fired police officer Derek Chauvin, and has sparked outcry on a national scale. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star appeared on the latest episode of Us Weekly’s “Hot Hollywood” podcast to discuss the movement.
“For me, my life is … It’s no more important than my brothers and sisters. It’s no more important than anyone,” Porsha said. The reality star shares her 14-month-old daughter Pilar Jhena with fiancé Dennis McKinley, and said she worries for her future. “My child’s future is on the line. … I fear for her future. I fear for her life and living in her black skin. I fear for my other future children.”

She continued, “I fear for my family members and people who I don’t even know. I did not know George Floyd personally, but I am African American just as he is. He is my brother. At this moment we all, everyone across the world, we’re fighting for humanity. We want injustice to come to an end now. And the people who have put this system together, in order to systematically have racism against African Americans, they’re the ones to dismantle it.”
