Hugh Jackman Speaks Out on Systemic Racism Following George Floyd's Death

Hugh Jackman Speaks Out on Systemic Racism Following George Floyd's Death

Hugh Jackman is speaking up about racism in the wake of George Floyd‘s murder that sparked a worldwide outrage.

The 51-year-old actor, who is dad to two biracial kids, Oscar and Ava with wife Deborra-Lee Furness, took to his Instagram, and revealed he looks to his mentors for advice on when he’s unsure what to do in times like this.

“…I reach for the words of my mentors who’ve helped guide me through life. One of those mentors is Nelson Mandela. He said ‘Racism must be opposed by all means that it has at its disposal. No truer words have been spoken,” Hugh wrote.

He continues, “I was taught, and try to teach my kids: the balance between the head and the heart, between emotions and reason is very difficult. My instinct is always that when emotion is high, I try to call on reason. And when my brain is dominating, I try to open my heart.”

“My emotions tell me that we need to take this tragic loss (and all those that came before) to change systemic racism the world over. My reason tells me one size does not fit all. We need to listen and begin to try and understand.”

Hugh opened up about deliberately adopting biracial children in 2009 with Parade magazine.

“Mixed-race babies have such a hard time being adopted that Deb and I checked off that box specifically when we were filling out our forms,” he mentioned. “Our lawyer brought the form back to us and said, ‘This is not the time to be politically correct. Are you sure this is what you want? We were definite about it.”

He went on to say that it was “the best thing we’ve ever done.”

'The Real's Amanda Seales Announces She's Leaving The Show After Just Six Months

'The Real's Amanda Seales Announces She's Leaving The Show After Just Six Months

Amanda Seales has announced that she’ll be leaving The Real after just six months on the daytime talk show.

The 38-year-old comedian revealed the news during an Instagram Live on Tuesday (June 2).

“My contract is up at The Real, and I didn’t renew it,” Amanda said, adding that she didn’t feel like she could express herself properly as a black woman on the show.

“It doesn’t feel good to my soul to be at a place where I can not speak to my people the way they need to be spoken to,” she added. “And where the people that are speaking to me in despairing ways are not being handled.”

Amanda went on, “I’m not at a space where, as a full black woman, I can have my voice and my co-workers also have their voices, and where the people at the top are not respecting the necessity for black voices to be at the top, too.”

In an additional Live the next day, Amanda insisted that her leaving wasn’t because of any issues with her co-hosts Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, Tamera Mowry-Housley and Adrienne Houghton.

“Do not try to create some false dissention between me and the co-hosts of The Real. Y’all so f***ing corny. There is a whole pandemic and an uprising going on, and you still can’t find s*** else to do but try and create some kind of conflict that doesn’t exist?” she said. “I did not unfollow Loni Love. I haven’t unfollowed anybody.”

“What ya’ll don’t understand is grown women do grown women business. That’s what y’all don’t understand, and what I gotta do with my business ain’t got nothing to do with them sisters.”

Justin then stood silent for an entire 21 seconds.

“We all watch in horror and consternation what’s going on in the United States…it is a time to pull people together, but it is a time to listen. It is a time to learn what injustices continue, despite progress over the years and decades,” he said.
