Even Kristin Davis is still trying to come to terms with the disappointing results from Donald Trump's victory.
More specifically though, she's terrified for her black 5-year-old daughter, Gemma Rose Davis, with the reported increase in hate crimes.

Speaking candidly in a "How I Got Over" interview about interracial adoption with WNYC's Rebecca Carrol, the Sex & The City starlet opened up about her white privilege and what that means for her adopted little one:
"I am white. I have lived in white privilege. I thought I knew before adopting my daughter that I was in white privilege, that I understood what that meant. But until you actually have a child, which is like your heart being outside you, and that heart happens to be in a brown body, and you have people who are actively working against your child, it's hard. It fills me with terror."
Kristin even explained just how her protective instincts kicked in after the election:
"I'm on the intense learning curve because I have to protect my child. I might have had the intellectual learning curve that we all hope and wish we have, but it's different than the actual life that you're on the line for. I have to protect my daughter at all costs."
She continued, describing the fear she lives in to ensure Gemma's safety:
"My initial thoughts on Wednesday morning was that I wanted to move to the woods and learn to shoot a gun. It makes no sense. I'm fully aware. I'm 100 percent aware that it literally makes no sense but … the fear of what is happening and how am I going to make sure that no one hurts my child, even in a subtle way, which was already a fear I had, honestly, but it just became so, so heightened."
