Los Angeles, June 3 (TIWN) Actress Katherine Heigl has admitted to living in her own "white bubble", and says she is struggling to find the right way to explain racism to her eight-year-old black daughter Adalaide.

Heigl, 41, shares three children with husband Josh Kelley, including Adalaide, who is adopted. Heigl and Kelley adopted Adalaide in 2012.

 
Heigl took to social media to share her restlessness and anger over the inequality, particularly as a mother of a black child, reports eonline.com.
 
“I’ve debated posting this. I don’t typically use my platform or social media to say much when it comes to the state of our country,” Heigl began, adding: “I keep most of those thoughts to myself. I act quietly and behind the scenes. I let those with far more experience, education and eloquence be the voices for change. But I can’t sleep. And when I do I wake with a single thought in my head. How will I tell Adalaide? How will I explain the unexplainable? How can I protect her? How can I break a piece of her beautiful divine spirit to do so?”
