Taraji P. Henson Sends Her Son to Black College Because He’s Been Racially Profiled [Video]
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.
