'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Porsha Williams is speaking out about racial inequality following her documented attendance at the Atlanta protests stemming from the murder of Minneapolis resident George Floyd at the hands of police.

As many American cities are in the midst of protests and tensions with police, Williams is expressing her substantial fears for her one year old daughter, Pilar Jhena, and her 'future' in regards to how African-Americans are poorly treated by law enforcement and related institutions within the country.

Appearing on a new episode of the hit 'US Weekly' podcast Hot Hollywood, Williams explained her feelings about the movement and the contributions she has made, explaining that she does not value herself any higher than anyone else contributing.

"For me, my life is … It’s no more important than my brothers and sisters. It’s no more important than anyone," the reality star told 'US Weekly' of her humanitarian feelings in regards to the social justice movement making waves across the country and the world.

"My child’s future is on the line. … I fear for her future. I fear for her life and living in her black skin. I fear for my other future children," she continued to detail of her fears for her children.

"I fear for my family members and people who I don’t even know. I did not know George Floyd personally, but I am African American just as he is. He is my brother. At this moment we all, everyone across the world, we’re fighting for humanity. We want injustice to come to an end now. And the people who have put this system together, in order to systematically have racism against African Americans, they’re the ones to dismantle it," Williams stated.

When questioned about her participation in the Atlanta protests, Williams said, "I’m being active in the protests because I stand with my brothers and sisters and I want to see change. When I watched that video of George Floyd dying, under the knee of an officer who was supposed to protect and serve him, it really made me feel a lot of pain."

The 'RHOA' star says she stands in solidarity with protestors and is working actively to make suppressed voices in this struggle more heard.

"Along with my fellow protestors, a lot of rage and passion. And I really want to be able to use any bit of influence that I may have, to be able to help those who don’t have the voices to be heard," she continued to explain.

"We want any officer of the law, who has taken part in excessive force and police brutality to be held accountable for what’s happening to our people. With everything that’s going on, today I’m just like anybody else. I am here to be a voice for the voiceless. What’s going on in black America is not ok. We are not ok. We just want to live," she concluded her argument.
