“Empire” star Taraji Henson doesn’t mess around, especially when it comes to her son.

She decided to send her son to Howard University in Washington, D.C., because he was racially profiled on a visit to the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, where she was originally going to send him.

She told Los Angeles’ KTLA-TV: “Police stopped him for having his hands in his pockets. … I’m not paying $50,000 so I can’t sleep at night wondering is this the night my son is getting racially profiled on campus.”

Henson graduated from Howard.
