Tyler Perry says he’s avoiding talking about race with his 7-year-old son

Perry said he’s delaying “the talk” with his son, whom he shares with model Gelila Bekele, as long as possible.

“I don’t want to tell him that there are people who will judge him because of the color of his skin

But Perry made it clear he knows the conversation will happen any day now.

“I know it’s coming, though, because he’s already asking some really tough questions,” he said.

“What I want him to be, more than anything, is somebody who sees injustice, speaks out against it, and effects change.”

Perry said the other reason for wanting to protect his son from the world is because he’s “not famous.”
