Priyanka Chopra Jonas has opened up about the "really racist behaviour" she experienced when she was in high school.
She said: "I had, you know, really racist behaviour when I was in high school in 10th grade. I was called Brownie, Curry, go back on the elephant you came on, and that really affected me when I was a kid and affected my self-esteem ... The way we treat people differently comes from cultural, subliminal messaging that has happened over eons. The more we can talk about it and open other people's eyes and say, 'It doesn't have to be that way,' and give them more examples, I guess society will change."
And the 36-year-old actress - who is married to singer Nick Jonas - wants to create a world where her future kids don't have to think about diversity.
Speaking to promote her ambassadorship for skincare company Obagi and the Skinclusion campaign, she added: "I do want to create a world for my future kids where they don't have to think about diversity, where they're not talking about it because it's normal."
The 'Isn't It Romantic' star previously insisted that "representation is important" to daily life and helps her decide what brands she wants to work with.
