Angelina Jolie condemned the "prioritization of white skin" in medicine in a new op-ed as she advocates for people of color, including three of her children.

In an article for the American Journal of Nursing published on July 5, Jolie wrote about a new technology that can help show bruising on people of color, which she argues could be beneficial for domestic violence victims.

While the article focuses on domestic abuse, Jolie also wrote about her adopted children and how the medical system has sometimes "endangered" their health.

Jolie shares three adopted children with her estranged husband Brad Pitt: Maddox, Zahara and Pax.The former couple, who were both declared legally single in 2019, also share three biological children: Shiloh, Knox and Vivienne. "As the mother of children of multiple races, I have seen my children of color be misdiagnosed, at times in ways that endangered their health," she wrote in the op-ed.
