It’s no secret that Tia Mowry-Hardrict and her twin sister Tamera Mowry-Housley are biracial and were born to a black mom and a white dad. In an effort to acknowledge the “privilege” her “dad has as opposed to her mother,” Tia took to Instagram to share some examples of how her mother was discriminated against because of the color of her skin.
She beings by describing one incident where her mother faced racism during the days the would travel for their hit show, Sister Sister.
“During our #sistersister days when traveling for work, we would often fly first class. There were several times my mother was asked if she was in the right seat.”
Another incident Tia describes her mother faced racism is when the family was in the market for their first home.
“My mother walked in the house model with us asking for a brochure. A person had said the houses were sold out. My dad walked in and it was a different story,’ she added.
She finishes by saying that even though 2020 has been rough, change will come.
“My goal is to see change. This year has been a tough year. Several tears have been shed. However, a friend told me these tears will not be wasted. The love and support around the world has kept me going. A change is gonna come.”
